We go to the Orsini a few times a year, usually our banker takes us there its expensive but excellent food, It is not a place to take your children mostly business people.We had an excellent fish with artichokes and lemon. My husband had a risotto I would say its one of there specialties ! Very professional service !

The Risotto ai funghi was simply devine. I have never had a risotto soooo good. The fish dish was also superb, although the price is a bit on the steep side. The restaurant is old classic decor, not big, but the service and the food are superb. Will definitely revisit.

Zurich has exceptional places where to eat, especially when it comes to dinner and Orsini is certainly amongst the top seven. It's cuisine is the - so called - "continental", with a light touch of Swiss in it. But I am never disappointed. It's a great place to dine. Enjoy LOVE

Stumbled upon Orsini last night and had a wonderfully delicious and decadent evening The pasta was divine, the prosecco even better. And yes, do order dessert! The gentlemen waiters were all delightful and willing to endure our Italian. As expensive as elsewhere in this area, but worth it. We weren't dressed for dinner as I wish we had been, but... More

This restaurant off a discreet courtyard typifies some aspects of Zurich - a low key location, excellent service, good quality ingredients and cooking, a sumptuous wine list with prices to match for more traditional bottles but also with some less typical products of the grape, and overall a rather old fashioned feel to the place. It's a great spot to... More

This restaurant in the center on the left side of the river Limmat has been a main stay for quite a while and features good Italian cuisine in a decent setting with good service. The staff all speak Italian, German and presumably English. Prices are, for Swiss standards, relatively reasonable. I often come here when visiting Zurich and have rarely... More

This is a very nice place. Relaxing and super friendly staff. Very formal but didnt kicked me out even if Im just wearing jeans. The calf liver was great. My eyes rolled honestly.

I went there with my company. It is a very traditional restaurant and the service was excellent. I didn't pay the bill and I am quiet happy about it but the quality of the food and the service were stunning
