Had dinner here and ordered their spaghetti. Came with sliced bread. Spaghetti was cooked perfectly el dente and sauce was excellent. We sat out under the glass enclosed area along the street. Very cozy Italian place.

We visited the Commercio as a bar and restaurant in a convenient location near the opera. We enjoyed excellent service, great drinks, flavorful tomato and mozzarella salad and nicely prepared burrata. We also treated ourselves to a beautiful dessert which we shared. We enjoyed the ambiance and the were lucky to be there early enough to get a nice table... More

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.

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!

The name "Restaurant Commercio" brings a sparkle to the eyes of many restaurant guests. And every one of them has a different story they could tell about this legendary venue. Commercio has kept pace with the times and developed itself further without forgetting its past. In summer 2011 the premises underwent a full renovation while preserving the charm for which Commercio is so well known. Commercio features the oldest and probably most beautiful stand-up bar in Zurich. From 1919, it unites generations of restaurant history. Here, our guests can talk, laugh, enjoy themselves and create good memories with each other. A special ambience is created through the combination of bar and restaurant giving Commercio a distinctive flair. But Commercio is not just an attractive setting that appeals to guests of all ages. Guests can also enjoy delicate pasta dishes combined with seasonal specialities. Nowhere will you find a more vibrant spirit of "italianità".
