We enjoyed a great dinner evening with very good food and very good service. Difficult to make a decision when looking at the menu. A lot of dishes that sounds very good and choices that are not so usual. But even when you live in Switzerland, main courses for North of CHF 70 are still a shock - and for... More

The welcome is extremely friendly and polite. When the Restaurant is full, the tables are a little too close! The menu is very Italian and contains many different dishes from pasta to fish and meat. And if you ask, they will even prepare something Italian which is not on the menu. The food is simply perfect. And also the service... More

I had a business dinner at Orsini's in December 2016. I was disappointed with the food. Not true Italian...more closer to Swiss. Service was great, but heavy atmosphere. Maybe it was not one of their best days...

Florence has numerous options for fine dining and orsini is one of them. Very good service, typical Italian environment, superb kitchen and great location make it one of the best restaurants in Zurich. Expensive, with limited choice of food, but definitely worth visiting.

This is one of the traditional and old fashioned italian places in Zurich. Part of the Savoy hotel. I was not really impressed at the last visit. The dining room is small, decorated in sort of 70s/80s style, rather sticky and noisy. Guests are rather on the older side. Food is good but nothing special, service rather stiff but very... More

Wonderful menu and the food did not disappoint. Attended by wonderful staff, who are top of their trade. This is no cheap night out, but if you want a real treat in a quite and formal setting, I doubt there is a better alternative in Zurich.

I had lunch here with 4 business colleagues today and what a surprise it was. It is a small, select Italian restaurant very conservatively decorated and laid out. Staff were super friendly and ultra efficient and the quality of the food was simply outstanding - its definitely upmarket but without the pretension - I would go as far as to... More

@nd night we ate here. Rang ahead and booked as it was a saturday. Right from when we were greeted by the waiting staff to when we left they were so attentive and made us feel very special. The food was delicious. I had ravioli to start which was lovely and then we had fish as a main which was... More
