The service is good, various choices of north Italian cuisine. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice, just enjoyed it. Standard & reasonable price for Zurich. Good location in the old town

Nice casual Italian restaurant. Saw a mix of people while there, tourists and locals. Enjoyed everything I had -- bruschetta special was really good, mushrooms were delicious and truffles interesting; ravioli was al dente, meat filling was very tasty, but the sauce a bit on the bland side; warm chocolate cake was as you would expect. I would recommend the... More

Restaurant was fairly busy and has a very welcoming feel. Great staff. Menu is somewhat limited. Had a mixed salad which came with a dressing that tasted shop bought and unfortunately was very cold. I find cold tomatoes quite unpleasant. The main was a veal roll and was quite pleasant but, not too sure about the lemony sauce it sat... More

The interior of the restaurant is lovely. Very warm and up-market. Service was good and attentive. Food was decent overall. The bruschetti starter was nice (granted it would be difficult to get this dish wrong) The ravioli di Manzo was absolutely delicious, but as is disappointingly common with ravioli dishes, the portion was small - 4 medium-large sized raviolis. The... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit if you are mooching around the old town. Friendly and cheerful staff; not always attentive but who cares? The pasta, home made I believe, is delicious and cooked al dente. This is a fun and friendly restaurant and judging by the presence of elderly locals and slick young business types, it has charming... More

The place is gorgeous. It's a good Italian restaurant in the area. The staff was fantastic and so was the service. The food was good, but not exceptional. Would still recommend without a doubt.

This ristorante offers outdoor and indoor dining. We ate outside. The restaurant tables are on the large quaint square with other restaurants. The spaghetti and meat sauce was delicious. My wife and I split the spaghetti and it was a generous serving. With two salads and four glasses of wine the cost was 72 CHF. It is walking distance from... More

Vallocaia is part of the Bindella group of Restaurants, hence another rock solid place for nice food, professional service and good atmosphere at a good price. Vallocaia is nicely decorated in the old town, providing italia food with mainly pasta and meat dishes. All very nice and cooked as it should be. Great lunch offers and nice wines.

The first time I am more than impressed in Zurich since months. Far one of the smartest service in Zurich. Risotto, meet and the dessert tastes fantastic! I enjoy eating in the warm "ambiente" in middle of the oldtown of zurich. Last but not least they also serve a perfect Italian Espresso! 9/10!

Enjoyable setting with nice outside seating. Somewhat reasonable pricing....for Zurich! Delicious monkfish and incredible appetizer of buffalo motz and cherry tomatoes. The other customers smoking cigs at outside tables is disgusting.
