Wanted to go to Angels Grill but it was closed. Ended up at filini. Ordered crab starter - the crab was clearly from a can and nasty. Bread was soaked in olive oil and mushy. Gnocchi came out cold.... And clearly from a package. No one checked in to make sure our meal was ok. After waiting for someone to notice me waving at them I gave up. Will go exploring airport for better options next time!!!

As a group we ordered tables well before and a menu price was fixed. After dinner, which was okay, the bill was completely wrong. The staff charged 5.- SFr. more per menu and added two bottles of expensive wine. Obviously the person in charge of service wanted to take advantage of the group situation and tried to slip the two bottles. After one hour of discussion with an arrogant head of service, who only wanted to talk to specific persons of the group, the menu was finally repriced to the price fixed before and he took the two bottles off the bill. Never again!

Another nuisance was the bar personal just across the restaurant, which had troubles to make traditional Swiss drinks, which are far from complicated. As they noticed my disappointment about their poor bartender skills, they made nothing but an arrogant comment. Never again as well!

Snowbound in Zurich so had lunch in this lovely restaurant. Very modern decor. Italien menu. Had spaghetti vongole which was al dente with big tasty clams. Hit of fresh red chilli added a little bite. Bread selection was a course in itself with olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.

The Filini Italian restaurant is where.the menu was average and limited and the food very salty. My wife and I found the staff disrespectful.
