A delicious pasta dish to remember

I would give it 4 stars where it not for the fact the service was not spectacular. The pasta dish (linguini and funghi) was just perfect. Nice environment, tight seating, great place to have dinner after going to the artsy cinema next door. The espresso was also quite well done. Auguri.

We received a special offer at the Piccadilly cinema and so decided to try it out. The first thing we noticed was that it was packed, which in Zurich on a Sunday night is a bonus. The starter salad was delicious as were the pastas - porcini and bolognese. We were also impressed with the service which was very friendly... More

Was there during lunch and had the Rigatoni a la Wodka, were very nice. Kind of a old-fashioned italian restaurant which doesn't serve pizza, therefore a real italian ristorante and not a pizzeria. I liked it and will be back soon. Prices are okay for the location and staff was very friendly.

Fresh and tasty home made pasta of excellent quality. Have eaten here frequently and have not had a bad meal, friendly staff and excellent service. Fair prices for Zurich with 25% discount for takeaway.

When I'm in Zurich to watch a movie or attend any cultural event and at the same time crave for a good Italian food (sans pizza) with reasonable prices in a pleasant atmosphere then I usually go to this Ristorante. I simply enjoy its homemade pasta either with fish, shrimps and octopus or just the classic pesto. It's worth to... More

I went regularly in this restaurant in the 90s. After i moved away, i wanted to try it again. There is nothing left from the old days. Food is terrible, atmosphere is gone. So do not try it!

This restaurant is one of the few places that offer a complete menu late in the night (until midnight on working days, until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays). Located quite close to Zurich's opera house, municipal theatre and concert hall, it is ideal for dinner after a spectacle. We had just pasta (spaghetti with minced veal and ham) and... More

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
