The menu is a mix of Italian and local dishes. I had bruschetta and flamkuchen, and both were very nice. The restaurant was closing when we arrived, but they willingly stayed open to serve us.

The pizza is great, the staff is always friendly and attentive. It's makes for a nice relaxing and leisurely meal. Sit outside and people watch, weather permitting. I like the four cheese pizza.

Restaurants in Switzerland are expensive, however the Coccodrillo is not as expensive as its competition. In fine dining it represents a good value. Very pleasant atmosphere with excellent service and a convenient location. A 3 or 4 minute walk from Marktplatz where most every tram...More
