this restaurant I know for years, it combines simple "rural" italian food with good service and reasonalbe prices - for Zurich
I live for quite some time in Zurich and I like this place, if u like this kind of restaurant, you can get a card to their WINE machine, whci allows you to try different wines without asking the wiater/waitress, this option is a bit pricey, though.
All in all, nice north italian food, cozy environment !

Very friendly service, good and fresh food. The menu doesn't change much but what they do, they do well. Better to order wine by the bottle than by the glass (or even half-glass) as it is more affordable. Nice patio in summer, too.

This place offers true Italian delicacies, and dishes prepared with fresh ingredients, for a real Italian taste outside Italy... no cream everywhere, no butter on fish, and... icing on the cake: no cappuccino allowed after 6 p.m. Thanks!!!
The only reason I wouldn't define it excellent is that it is not really cosy, it's very busy and loud, but perfect for a dinner with friends.

The location is full of atmosphere, the food is excellent, but each time we went there, we felt that we have to be grateful that we are allowed to be their guests. No warm welcome, no cheerful faces and that really sucks. If I spend 100 Swiss Francs for an evening, the service has to be hospitable and you need to feel that they like to host you. We adressed our concern to our waitress when paying our bill and her comment was "I cannot please everyone" and she was unable to accept a constructive criticism on her general attitude and behaviour. Result: We are not going there any more - pity!
