Zum alten Löwen, Universitätsstrasse, Zurich



Orechiette mit Brokkoli

Meat, vegetables and potatoes

Zum Alten Loewen was a run down place and created quite a stir in the neighborhood. New proprietors are running it and have a very simple concept called Tavolata. For 55 CHF you get a complete meal with antipasti, pasta and a main course. Everything is served family style, which means that you need to be quick or greedy, since everything is put into the middle of the table to share. To cut it short antipasti and mains were great. The antipasti had a good variety and were well prepared. The duck was delicious and important that the vegetables each kept their distinguished taste. To be fair the two pasta courses weren’t perfect, the hazelnut ravioli and the orechiette with broccoli weren’t very inspiring. Still, I don’t know many places were you get this much food at such a low price in Zurich. If they have a good pasta day, you’re in for a real treat.
