The location was difficult to find but the atmosphere inside was great. We ordered one pizza, Risotto and one seasonal dish for share. The pizza was great filled with ingredient with crispy paste. Maybe we would better order 1/2 dish next time as they were too much for us to finish. The asparagus was really fresh and delicious. The scallops... More

We had a vegetarian pizza with burrata, truffle pasta, and a tuna tartare appetizer. The tiramisu was incredible. The restaurant was crowded so we were glad we had reservations. Our dog was also very welcomed and was even given her... More

Visited in April 2017, and was extremely impressed! The food was amazing (nicest I've ever tried in Switzerland) and there was a wide range of choice on the food and drinks menus. The service was brilliant, waiters were very quick and were happy to carry out many requests. The steak was cooked perfectly and the food was presented very well.... More

Restaurant was packed , best to reserved before going, we were given 50 mins before next group come in but no regret. Pizza cucina is yummy. The food overall is nice but just pricey and this is true in all places in switzerland.

After a long day of sightseeing all my friend and I wanted was the most amazing Italian pizza...La Cocina came highly recommended, and it did not disappoint. Our waiter LUIGI made our experience amazing and helped us with our selections. Our pizzas were an explosion of flavors and cooked to perfection. Visit La Cocina and ask for LUIGI and you... More

We ordered the truffle pasta to share which was hands down the best dish we ate all evening. Service was lovely, Fernando our host was attentive and happy to recommend some of the dishes in English. Prices were reasonable, I would estimate 30-40CHF per person. Would go back again
