Love it! We had the oven baked steak for 2. The portion size is enough to feed 4. Steak was cooked to perfection (I wanted it medium). I love the grilled vegetables which were part of the dish. The wine that we had ordered was asuperb! Service was good and left nothing to chances. On a super hot day (95F... More

A few steps away from the famous Paradeplatz, I often treat myself with a fine Italian meal at the Orsini, which belongs to the Savoy Baur-en-ville hotel. The service is ensured by a team of very professional and welcoming Italian waiters long established in Switzerland. The menu is appealing and the cook is very talented at making the simplest dishes... More

The restaurant serves a good selection of Italian inspired dishes, with the true Italian love of first-class fresh ingredients simply cooked. It is expensive, but that is because it serves lobster, sole beef fillet etc, and in good sized portions. It is an example of "you get what you pay for", if you are lucky. Here, you can expect to...

This is a very nice restaurant with excellent standards and service. BUT, if you are not from Zurich please take my advise be prepared to spend a fortune to eat a reasonable meal here. IT is probably at least 3x more expensive than Italian restaurants of similar standard located in Italy. I did enjoy my meal and the wine was... More

The service is first class. The food is just delicious. I was there there early 2013 and on Dec 13.2013. The second time was just a confirmation of the first: service is just as it should always be. Food is as the Chef' mood is: excellent to very good. The Barolo is superb (let it open at least 30 min.... More

This small, smart restaurant is one of my favourites in Zurich. Its location, close to Paradeplatz, is perfect for a business lunch. Although there is a dress code, the staff is very friendly and attentive. Excelent fish rivals to mouthwatering pasta dishes. A bit pricey, even for Zurich standards. But one will never be disappointed.
