A pleasant Italian Restaurant near the centre of town, reasonably priced as Swiss prices go.

After trying the house wine we shared a bottle of the "wine of the month", a relative bargain at CHF41! Nick started with traditional Italian straciatella followed by a pork schnitzel with lemon and chips. I skipped a starter and went straight for a main of prawn and asparagus risotto flavoured with saffron. This was excellent and if I hadn't had the best risotto ever the night before (link to follow), would have been more impressed than I was. My main argument with risotto is that the whole dish tends to taste the same, so that apart from the texture you can't tell whether you're eating rice or ingredient. This was not the case here - a forkful of rice and asparagus tasted of asparagus and a forkful of rice and prawn tasted of prawn. Perfectly sized portion too- I was not over filled or left wanting.

Nick finished with an espresso which brought the bill to CHF108. Fortunately tipping is not expected in Switzerland and we were given complimentary shots of Limoncello.
