Restaurant Sissi

of Andrea Fenoglio

Restaurant Sissi opened its doors for the first time in 1991 in a small art deco building in Plankenstein Street. In this building once there had been a little corner shop and a tailor. Out of the corner shop the dining hall was made and out of the tailor’s shop the kitchen. The dining hall consisted of six tables only. Only later table 7 was added: a famous architect one evening – not being able to be seated as the restaurant was full – immediately got himself to do some drawings on just a little piece of paper and came up with a brilliant sort of paravent which made this extra table possible, nicknamed by everybody “the diner car”.

In 1998 the restaurant moved to 44, Galilei Street, once Restaurant “Andrea”. Today the restaurant has 10 tables plus one – table 11, a Stube and obviously a kitchen, which is not very large, but still allows us to work with serenity and joy. Our kitchen and service team try to thrill our clients by balancing evolutionary, advanced gastronomy with respect for the necessary rules of traditional hospitality.

  • How should I dress?

    You can dress however you like at Sissi.
  • Should I book a table?

    At lunch we can always find a place for you. For dinner it’s best if you book, but if you come without a reservation we will do our best to accommodate you.
  • How late do you serve food?

    At lunch, the last orders go into the kitchen around 14.00, and at dinner around 21.15
  • Can I bring my dog?

    Absolutely. We ask only that you let us know in advance so we can put you at a table where there’s also space for your 4-legged friend.
  • Do you have a children's menu?

    There are always choices on our menu that are more appealing to kids, otherwise we’d be happy to make some simple spaghetti with tomato sauce.
  • I am a celiac, will I find suitable choices on your menu?

    Most of our dishes are gluten-free, and we can make minor changes to others so that they too are gluten-free.

    We offer a selection of organic juices, non-alcoholic beer and 3-4 high quality beers.

    We’ve got a terrace, but in the summer we keep all our windows open and the effect is like a terrace with the comfort of being indoors.
