We had dinner here Feb 5, 2014.
Two of the four pizza's were not what we ordered.
I like salt, really, but my pizza was very very salty.
The first bottle of Barolo had cork and was removed the 2nd Barolo did not have cork but certainly was not good, tasted very sourish. We then ordered a bottle of Barbera d'Alba which did not taste OK either.
We still had to pay for the 2 last bottles (CHF 65 + 62) although most of the wine was still on the table.

This restaurant is upstairs at the hotel unique post. The decor is cool, with exposed timber and rock. It shows ski movies on a big screen.

The pasta is ok. We had bolognese (not very tomato, bit oily) and amatraciana (bacon wasn't well cooked).

This is part of a collection of different eating options in hotel post. Upstairs, nice decor and vibe. Service was attentive and the food was excellent - even the mixed salad had a wow factor for us! We went for pasta but the pizzas looked great too, and you can specify your own.

Please don't let the cheesy name of this restaurant put you off.

This resturant is bursting with atmosphere, waiters and waitresses dashing about, lots of people over 3 floors chatting and laughing.

The menu is typically pizza and pasta but the food is fabulous - I had one of the best Calzone's I've ever had and my wife had linguine with clams which she raved about (she used to live with an Italian so is pretty hard to please when it comes to pasta!

Despite our love for italian inspired desserts the plentiful portions meant we couldn't sample the sweets but we'll certainly know to make space next time we visit

Really enjoyed eating here. The name was a bit off putting, but the service was pretty good and the food very tasty. Good selection of pastas, make up your own pizza, really nice salads and desserts too. Probably one one the better dining experiences in Zermatt. Atmosphere in the restaurant is modern but made out of old/recycled timbers. Sounds weird but works really well. Ate there a few times with friends and had a great meal every time.
