Located in the oldest quarter of Neuchâtel, the Banneret is an excellent Italian restaurant. You can hardly go wrong with any item on the menu. Not only is the food exceptional. The building, dating from 1609, is the finest example of late Renaissance style architecture in the region, and is a feast for the eyes.

The ground floor is nice, but take the stairs up to the next floor for a more intimate experience. The interior architecture is finer, also. When the weather is warm you can have your meal on the front terrace, and watch the people of Neuchâtel pass by as you enjoy your meal.

1 rue Fleury, tel. (+41) 32 725 28 61, fax (+41) 32 725 46 30. Open 11:30 - 24:00. Closed Sunday.
