We spotted this restaurant while on a walk early in the day. We decided to return for dinner and we weren't disappointed. We asked to be seated inside even though it was a warm evening and most of the outside tables were already taken.
We were seated close to the pizza oven and pizza maker. Of course, the pizza was excellent as was the rest of our Italian dinner. Everything was authentic and fresh. Staff members were all excellent and enthusiastic. The owners also assisted in taking our order and in serving.
We were lucky to find this great restaurant and we highly recommend it.

Our family of four was getting tired, hungry, and irritable as we travelled from Geneva to Grindelwald so we needed to stop for dinner in Interlaken. After reading reviews i called to check on the availability of gluten free options. This has been a challenge in Switzerland and France but Citta Vecchia has gluten free pasta and pizza crust for our youngest son. We all had a wonderful meal and they were very accommodating and warm with their service. Our family entered the restaurant road weary and left all smiles and excitement for the next day. I highly recommend.

The pizza was good (nothing spectacular) but the servers were very friendly and all too excited when we asked to learn more about the after dinner digestives. They even brought out 2 different bottles and gave us a sample before we selected what we wanted. The restaurant is on a back side street so there's not much to see but great for a nice quiet dinner.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friendly Italian guy at our hotel reception. No wonder then that this was easily the best Italian restaurant we visited in all of Switzerland. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and the wine recommendation perfect. The food here is authentic, simple, and yet so incredibly delicious!

Sit outside for a quiet feel for Interlaken and a really nice view. Try the Piemonte wine.. its fantastic.

Woud definitely recommend this place to everyone

We took a tip from our hotel concierge and visited Citta Vecchia on the last night of our stay at Interlaken. The walk to the resaturant was short from the centre of the town, but takes you over the river and into the old part of town, situated in an old square. The restaurant was busy which was a good sign. The owners were working in the restaurant and were very friendly and helpful.

We started with good old Brushetta which my wife reckons was one of the best she has tasted, I had the tomato soup which was piping hot, and full of flavour and obviously home made.

The next course was a spicy chicken and mushroom pizza, cooked to perfection and extremely tasty, again full of flavour and extremely cripsy crust, so good I never managed to finish it. The other main was home made lasagne again, excellent.

We only managed to share a Tiramasu, however no complaints here.

The bill was also very reasonable and as I said earlier the owners were serving and took time to stop and talk and give you a bit of history about the area. If you are in the area, don't miss this place out.
