Cantinetta Antinori in the chic part of Bahnhofsstrasse knows elegance: the candlelight is reflected in the polished wine glass at white-covered tables, and classic Tuscan cuisine is served with typical Italian hospitality.

The classic charm of the Zurich old townhouse is underlined by the wood-panelled dining room, and the plates are also classic. Not only because Florence serves as a reference point for the cuisine. Surrounded by delicate patterns, it sends delicious antipasti like bruschette miste or insalatina ai frutti die mare to the guest. And, of course, mozzarella di bufala on a fruity bed of tomatoes.

This is followed - classically Italian, of course, where the pasta serves as an appetiser - by wafer-tender cappellacci. The pasta caps filled with ricotta, fresh marjoram and spicy Parmesan cheese are not only a Tuscan speciality, but also the flagship of the house.

Just like the aromatic dishes with plenty of fresh black truffle, such as homemade taglioni al tartufo nero. Or finely shaved over a fresh beef carpaccio or as a tasty addition to a veal escalope. Peeled giant prawns fried in plenty of good Tuscan olive oil with garlic and peperoncini or a juicy fillet of beef in a balsamic sauce will delight all the senses at once.

Either way, an excellent drop of wine from Tuscany tastes great with it - after all, the region with its gently rolling landscape is also known for its vines and is considered one of the oldest wine regions of all. Naturally, the Cantinetta Antinori also has a number of wines from all corners of Italy on its wine list - many of which are available by the glass or in oversize.

Of course, a creamy tiramisu is a must for dessert. If you prefer something heartier, choose Italian cheeses to close your stomach. This is inevitably part of the sensual Italian culture of enjoyment, and Cantinetta Antinori is fully committed to it.
