We went for a pizza dinner before going to the movies and we were very positively surprised to find this great little Italian restaurant in Zürich. Our starters were very enjoyable - green salad and mortadella and our pizze were simply fantastic and exact to order (we usually extend one from the menu with a few extras and ask for... More

The food here is cooked from the heart, the owner is from the south side of Italy and really knows how to make good pasta and pizzas. It is a rather small establishment, but very cozy. I like to go there a lot. If you are unsure what to get, just let them recommend something. They also have good wine.

Went to Don Leone on the recommendation of a Swiss colleague and could see why its reputation as a lovely, cozy Italian restaurant with great food, is thoroughly deserved! Wonderful, thin crust pizza and a great salad, and a lovely carafe of red wine to wash it all down.

Always full and always dependable. I have been here a number of times and the food / service is always of high quality, something that other restaurants in Zurich tend to lack. My only gripe was that they managed to put some Ham into my Parmagiana Melanzane...
