Excellent pasta, specifically the oil/garlic pasta with shrimp. In addition to the excellent food, the man who owns the restaurant is so sweet and accommodating. Highly recommend for a nice lunch or dinner.

a large variety of good italien food . In summer often very crowded, but possible to sit outside on the old and pittoresque plaza of Unterseen. Don't forget to book a table. In winter cosy inside and delicous food and deserts. We had the very good risotto al limone, fish-soup, Pizza porcini plus good desserts. I would for sure eat... More

An Italian, probably guessing from some of the decor, Sardinian, restaurant in Unterseen Alt Stadt part of Interlaken opposite to pleasant historic square. We were there just after Christmas on an evening, Tuesday, when it is, I believe generally closed. We wanted a light dinner so each had one course, I a spaghetti marinara that was advertised on the menu... More

Looks great from the outside. Welcome was lacking and at no time did we feel enough pleasure in our visit. A dog barked under a locals table in the room. One of the ? owners appeared to add to the odour of the room. My "Prosciutto"pizza was good and well made, the spaghetti marinara, only had huge good prawns, no... More

When arriving to the restaurant it looked cosy and pretty. When we walked in we were greeted and seated quickly however that was as good as it got for service I'm afraid. My score of 4/5 really was to do with the fact there was a wide range of choice on the menu and the food was absolutely amazing!! It... More

Surprisingly good Italian food with a friendly server. We had spaghetti in a creamed sauce with vegetables. We would recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out

Probably one of the best restaurants in Interlaken. Really outstanding. I am vegan and the proprietor went out of the way to make an appropriate fare for me. Mushroom soup was divine according to my wife as she is vegetarian. The variety of Grappas was more than satisfying and moderate priced. Don't miss their Sorbet the pistachios in particular.

The Citta Vecchia Ristorante is located near hotels/West train station with great cuisine, service and wine. Gluten free options. My husband and I had a quiet table yet was a huge party on the other side of restaurant. Take your time and enjoy a peaceful evening.

Went there on the recommendation of my hotel. I get lost in a phone booth so I had trouble finding the place. Walking distance from town center if u can read a map. Great food, owner and staff were great to me.

We've just come back from this restaurant in Unterseen. The food was nice (4 of us ate lasagne, 1 had tagliatelle), however the mixed salad was not as rich as one would expect. What really upset us was the very slow service. We arrived at 07.30 but our order was taken only 30 minutes later and it took another half... More
