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.

This is a very nicely decorated restaurant with very professional staff and good food. The prices of course are very high, even for Zurich. My favorite thing about this restaurant is the wine list! Very nice and your server will make a recommendation for you if you ask. Overall I had a good experience here.

I had the good fortune to be treated to a lunch on a Saturday at Restaurant Orsini and was incredibly impressed. Extremely friendly and attentive service greeted us and the food choices made it difficult to make a selection. The antipasti was dainty but tasty, and the tortellini with asparagus was mouthwatering. My friends had the shrimp, which I tasted,... More

My wife and I dined here after we arrived in Zurich. We were cold, tired, and wondering around in disbelief at the menu prices posted around the city when we happened to stumble into Orsini. The service was extremely friendly and attentive and we were treated extremely well even though we didn't happen to notice the "jacket recommended" attire suggestion... More

Some 5 years ago the long time head waiter retired. And though I have never dined at Orsini without being greeted by the manager of the Savoy Baur Hotel (of which Orsini is part), who impresses with his seemingly eternal presence, checking on his Orsini-equippe and his guests, the food is not what it used to be. The Fondo di... More

Restaurant Orsini belongs to the 5-star Savoy Hotel Baur en Ville on Bahnhofstrasse and Paradeplatz. The charm of this Italian fine dining Restaurant is a conglomeration of best quality food ingredients , Italian wine and cuisine, and very impressive interior decor of Poppy flower theme – paintings of the Tuscany hills and the carpet. My 4-course menu is superb –... More
