SILBA Restaurant & Bar

silba

My personal highlight: Fruity Slowfood Chianti and hot chocolate tortino with a liquid hot chocolate core

Finding Mediterranean food thanks to instagram

Social media and instagram are a great help for foodblogger. A colorful esthetic post of pasta from Betina brought me to SILBA in Kreis 6 close to Schauffhauserplatz. Betina and Roger Zimmermann are the owner of SILBA Restaurant.

The Chef is an experienced Italian guy from Ischia. The enjoyment of food is about more than how it tastes. Well, yes, here at SILBA this is absolutely true, the eyes eat, too. Betina and Roger are lovely, you feel immediately at home here. I love the atmosphere. You get the feeling that everybody knows each other. If you decide to go out for dinner alone, you take a seat the bar and have a nice chat and won’t get bored.

Seafood and Tapas

Find some tasty seafood pasta, tender veal with funghipolenta accompanied by a fruity Slowfood Chianti from Il vallone di Cecione, a wine maker in Tuscany. Beside a variety of antipasti and delicious dolci try the good wine or tapas.

The owners spent a long time of their life in Spain, this explains the Spanish influence combined with the Italian food on the menu. I love it.

Are you in the mood of a quick and satisfying lunch during business times? Show up here, the menu varies and gives you energy for the rest of the day.

Vineria Centrale

vineria centrale

My personal highlight: Wine and aperitivo like in Italy, their passito malvasia delle Lipari is world class

Aperitivo Place

In the mood of an aperitivo Italian Style? There are not many places in Zurich where you can get this. I suggest Vineria centrale. This Winebar is located at Neugasse 42, Zurich. Their selection of wine is excellent.

If you can manage, get there on Thursday’s or Friday’s at 7 pm. You find a variety of of antipasti. This is a typical Italian thing, a food culture let’s say. Italians love being together, eat good food, drink wine and talk about life.

Buy your drink and for a supplement of 2 Swiss Francs , antipasti. Check out their website!

Ristorante Italia

rigatoni salsiccia

My personal highlight: Pasta with salsiccia, it’s like being down at the bottom of the heel

This is a restaurant to eat excellent pasta or typical traditional Italian food from the southern region of Italy. My favorite pasta there is the pasta rigatoni with salsiccia.

In the main sala called “sala rosa” the restaurant has an enomat. Here you can select out of a variety of wines from Italy and Switzerland. It’s kind of fancy to hold your glass under a machine and fill it by yourself. Salute!

Make your own choice. The place is at Zeughausstrasse 61.
