I've been to Commercio several times, not because it deserves re-visitng, but because I meet up from time to time with friends for a movie night. Others choose the restaurant, presumably because it's inexpensive by Zurich standards and is near the cinema. So, back in Zurich last March I was delighted to meet some friends there. And for the first... More

Looked for a nice Italian restaurant after just arriving in Zurich. Most places were closed as it was 3pm. Went in and found the service to be friendly. The waiter spoke Italian. The ambience OK, but not great. The food was also OK, but not fantastic. Unfortunately we got ripped off when we ordered 2 half litre carafes of house... More

There are a lot of italian restaurants in Zurich, but this is a step above the rest. It's well-priced and their homemade pasta is the only way to go. You can request it with almost any dish. I highly recommend it! The seating is a bit tight, you'll get to know your neighbours, but well worth it. Make a reservation,... More

We dined here for lunch while visiting our friends who live near the Commercio Bar and Restaurant. My wife ordered the tagliatelle with porcini and funghi, our friend the rigatoni alla diavola, and I the penne gorgonzola. Our pastas were cooked to perfection, and served with freshly grated parmesan. The portions were adequate, and the service was succinct. I sampled... More

I was on a business trip and was looking for a restaurant in walking distance from the hotel Ambassador. So I chose the Commercio as it was less than 10 minutes away. I went with some colleagues and did not make a reservation, but we were immediately seated. The service was great, and the food was extraordinary. The carpaccio was... More

I went there with friends and the waiter almost told off one of my friends, because she asked for the difference between the small portion and the big portion. We had to sit in the winter garden and it was freezing, so we asked to sit inside and the waiter was clearly upset. The food was very good, I have... More

Had take away lunch here which was great, thought we'd therefore try it for dinner. Unfortunately it was a bit of a let down. The food was ok (not as good as at lunch), but the service was really not good. The service was slow (and it wasn't that busy), they also forgot to take some orders, but most of... More
