Very overrated restaurant which at the best of times serves average food. Nothing special about it other than its location which attracts students of the university, Food is also over priced for similar fare available at other restaurants.

Really good focaccia and nice place, you could have a really good time here! If you're lucky enough to have a good and efficient waiter... Answers like "ask by yourself to the other team" when the question is as simple as "which salad do you have" show a clear lack of respect and professionalism

Nice little foccaceria. Good honest food. Selfmade ice tea was good. A little expensive though for what you get.

The foccaceria has a lovely concept! You can easily get fresh, authentic italian food for a reasonable price. Take it out or eat it there. They also provide lots of vegetarian ingredients for the foccacia bread! A place to visit and to enjoy!

They sell focaccias filled with a wide range of italian ingredients. The concept of it is quite cool, unfortunately the quality of the food is mediocre at best and the price you have to pay certainly doesn't match the quality. I would recommend it for a quick snack on a night out in case you are craving italian food. Otherwise... More

I'm from saint gallen and I love focacceria! The food is so delicious and I wanna go there all the time. You've so many choices of food and the best you can fill your focaccia with your favourite flavours. It's great, you should go and visit!

Though focacceria isn't particularly cheap, it's worth your money - the food is very tasty and doesn't resemble what you can get elsewhere in St. Gallen. I recommend the homemade lemonade. If it's sunny outside, ask to sit upstairs on the terrace!

We are so glad we chose this little place for the last lunch ur vacation in Switzerland. I had a sandwich and my wife had a pasta special both were mouth watering. We shared a tiramisu. Highly recommend this place for lunch and I think it is also a nice spot for dinner too!! 😎
