Chianalea

Zurich – This restaurant with the difficult name opened in April 2013 in the middle of Kreis 4. When I first read about the restaurant in Züritipp Gastro (one of my favourite research sources) I wanted to reserve a table but it was fully booked.

The restaurant is quite small and the ambiance charming; you can see that the two guys Francesco and Enrico manage this restaurant with a lot of passion. They have both Italian roots in the village of Chianalea in Calabria and dedicated the restaurant to it. The food of this area (as well as pizza) is served in the restaurant and opens up to a new clientele. I had the fettucine with scampi and white beans…something I never had before in this combination but is really delicious. My partner had the tagliata di manzo, served on a wood platter which was also very good. Besides a lot of good Italian wines you can have water from the tap, that is built in the bar, what I found very likeable. They serve also pizza and in summer some tables are located on the quiet street-terrace.
