My family has eaten here several times. Always satisfied with the food. The owner was even willing to prepare a special (not on the menu) meal for my wife and I with only a 24 hour advance notice. In a country where "if it is not on the menu, it is not available" that is almost unheard of.

Been here - the place doesn't look like much from the outside , but don't get turned down, the food inside is most likely the best you can have on the island (at least) if you aim for Italian. It takes long for the food to be delivered but thats what you have to pay for freshly made dishes. Small... More

My wife, her family, and I visited this small restaurant a few nights ago and were taken aback by the attention to detail and quality in our meal that was literally cooked a few feet from us!

The food was great, all prepared on the spot in an open kitchen. The chef took our order and was friendly, super professional and knowledgeable, and there's a huge selection of Italian and Swiss dishes. The Pesto sauce was out of this world, and the mushroom risotto was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area! A charming... More

We had the BEST bruschetta for appetizer, and pizza for dinner. This is absolutely real Italian food. And the people are so nice and helpful. You can also watch while they make the food. They use real Italian ingredients, and you can taste it. We are so happy with this place!

Description
As a son of an Italian mother and Swiss father, my heart is beating for both countries. Since early age my mother has shown me how to cook tasty food, but more important she had taught me how to cook food with love and care. This hobby became later a passion. This passion I brought with joy to the Swiss Italian Restaurant Cebu. I continue this tradition, preparing all my culinary dishes, delightful in front of our guests (front cooking), with love and great dedication! At the Swiss Italian Restaurant Cebu, we offer a wide range of traditional Swiss and authentic Italian specialties which I prepare with the best available and freshest ingredients with great dedication and love. Most of us realized that love and great passion are the best ingredients for a delicious meal. Last but not least, all of us know, that eating and drinking are one of the most important things life has to offers. If you visit the Swiss Italian Restaurant Cebu with your family or friends, we will be delighted to offer you an enjoyable lunch or dinner. But as mentioned above, we also attach great importance to freshness quality, so that... Vegetables are always prepared fresh after delivered from an organic farm in Bukidnon; Beef and pork we use for our dishes is aged meat, which we import from a Swiss butcher; Fish, seafood and poultry, we buy always fresh from a local market and all the other ingredients like cheese, cured meat, pasta, rice, extra virgin olive oil, and other typical, genuine and authentic ingredients are imported direct from Switzerland and Italy. We are glad to prepare and to serve you a great meal, because your satisfaction is our challenge and happiness!
