This is a lovely italian restaurant in a great location, the back rooms have teh better atmosphere and in the summer the garden is a great alternative to an inside table. Food is consistently good. It is a very popular place and they don't take bookings, but I never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get a table.

We went to Santa Lucia twice during our 2 weeks in Zurich. One time I had pasta and another time I had pizza. Both meals were good & well up to scratch for a nice Italian restaurant. It's always packed so book ahead if you want to go there.

Nice location and big space Good is that they work all day without breaks between lunch and dinner BUT food is soooo average so pure just was very disappointed . There is s feeling that chef does not close to Italian cuisine . Definitely need to modernize menu in a lighter more healthy and delicate taste Always disappointed with this... More

The service was ok. I hade a nice pizza with scampi and spinach and I liked it very much. The local was a bit loud but nice anyway.

Went here for a business dinner. Average Italian fare and pizzas, nothing innovative or special. Not an attractive spot and average service. Reasonably priced but you get what you pay for. Ok, but I probably would not return. I think it's a chain.

Relatively good Italian spot in the Old Town section of the city. We arrived for dinner without a reservation on Christmas Eve, and were seated promptly. Pizza was good (had the Santa Lucia), and the Caprese salad was tasty too. Feel free to ask your waiter for chili peppers, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, etc, as they apparently don't bring it...

This Italian is in the exclusive Paradeplatz area of Zurich, but is mor family oriented and less expensive than others in the area. On a busy Sunday evening just as the Christmas shopping was closed for the day the restaurants were all very busy, but we were lucky to get a table. Staff were friendly - the menu was typical...

My wife, son and daughter in law at supper at the restaurant. My son and wife had pasta. My daughter in law and I had pizza, her pizza was the margarita pizza and mine was a meat pizza with peppers and olives. The total was about $70.00 CHF ($68 US dollars).

I walked in at almost 11pm (late for Zurich) on a weeknight and was greeted very warmly by my waiter who proceeded to take very good care of me. The food (I had spaghetti arrabiata) was very tasty and the portions were generous. What made it a very pleasant evening was the warm and attentive service by the wait staff.

The wine, the pizza - the homemade pasta, the musician roaming the restaurant and not to mention the duet from the man flipping the dough high into the air while he makes our pizza. Amazing night!! Go here!
