What a pleasant surprise! Schülli's former restaurant 'Oscar' at Kanzleistrasse 103 is now home to the notable 'La Baracca', which true Italian Massimo established at the end of 2013. 'La Baracca', in my mind, is exactly what is still seldom found in Zurich. A bustling, unconventional, trendy local with excellent, traditional cuisine. Which is exactly what I like!

As we enter the local we take in the hustle and bustle. For the size of the restaurant there is a surprisingly large number of waiters scurrying back and forth between tables, serving plates with generous portions of typical Italian dishes. Every now and then you hear a "bene ", "grazie" and "prego" – it seems the entire staff is exclusively Italian. It is honest, authentic, and it seems no one had expected the expats in Zurich, who sit with very satisfied faces at the tables.

So we wait patiently and finally end up - how else could it be - at a table with Italians. They probably come here quite often and strongly recommend the Parpadelle "Bologna Mon Amour" to try. "They must know", I think to myself, and ordered this as a main dish with the "Ricotta e Verdure grigliate Buffala e Miele e Tartufo bianco" as a starter.


My companion opts for the "Carpaccio di Manzo alla rucola" and "Tri di pasta", which we later discover in comparison with our table colleagues, turn out to be different variations of the same dish. Long story short, it was divine and I'm sure to return as a guest again soon. Thank you Massimo - your concept is exceptional!
