The sun is out and the whish for summer ripens in my heart. In my mind, summer is frequently linked to Italy, so when I came across Genovas at Bertastrasse (IdapIatz) it felt like holiday. The shop, run by an Italian family, is filled with delicacies from Molise in Southern Italy: from hand-made pasta and sauces to antipasti (several varieties with truffle) and from wine to oil. All products are produced by small manufacturers and cooperatives. The prices are very reasonable (most expensive red wine costs 23 francs) and everything is designed with style. Great for a dinner full of summer sun or as a gift to bring along. Genovas, Bertastrasse 26, 8003. Opening hours: Monday to Friday 4 to 8 pm, Saturday 10 am to 8 pm

3. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky
The weather has been frightful but the forecast is for better days ahead and what better way to celebrate more clement weather than watching a movie under the stars. On Thursday and Friday Openair Kino Honggerberg are showing Whiplash and Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. There is also a barbecue and live music before the film starts. I'd recommend bringing a warm jumper though.
