Here is a place that we really like for a number of reaons. Firstly, it has finally bought some life to Piazza Cavour (it is always open from 7.30am until 2.00am). Secondly, it is bright, spacious, modern and furnished in a unique and original way. It also has a great outside seating area just a few steps away from Giardini di Porta Venezia, which you can enjoy even in the colder months thanks to the outdoor heaters. Swiss Corner is a bar and restaurant that was opened by the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Italy (and situated on the ground floor of the Centro Svizzero - Swiss Centre) to promote Swiss culture, design and style as well as hold cultural events. The space is characterised by large windows that look out directly over Piazza Cavour and Via Palestro; while inside there is a long stainless steel bar positioned in the centre and surrounded by red stools. On either side of the bar is the restaurant area; the walls of which consist of large screens where images of famous Swiss citizens are projected as well as scenes of Swiss towns and countryside. The lounge restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, aperatifs, dinner and after dinner drinks. Some evenings there is a DJ, while on Saturday and Sunday brunch is served between 12 alle 16. The lunch and dinner menu offers dishes accompanied by Swiss cheeses, tartare, salads and crepes, many of which have Swiss names. Our favourites are the Helvetia crepe with gorgonzola, radicchio and walnuts, the Sankt Moritz crepe with mozzarella, ham and olive patè, the Nordica with marinated salmon, avocado, philadelphia and lime, as well as the desserts with fruits of the forest, cream cheese and other delicious combinations.
