I had a business dinner at Orsini's in December 2016. I was disappointed with the food. Not true Italian...more closer to Swiss. Service was great, but heavy atmosphere. Maybe it was not one of their best days...

Florence has numerous options for fine dining and orsini is one of them. Very good service, typical Italian environment, superb kitchen and great location make it one of the best restaurants in Zurich. Expensive, with limited choice of food, but definitely worth visiting.

This is one of the traditional and old fashioned italian places in Zurich. Part of the Savoy hotel. I was not really impressed at the last visit. The dining room is small, decorated in sort of 70s/80s style, rather sticky and noisy. Guests are rather on the older side. Food is good but nothing special, service rather stiff but very... More

Wonderful menu and the food did not disappoint. Attended by wonderful staff, who are top of their trade. This is no cheap night out, but if you want a real treat in a quite and formal setting, I doubt there is a better alternative in Zurich.

I had lunch here with 4 business colleagues today and what a surprise it was. It is a small, select Italian restaurant very conservatively decorated and laid out. Staff were super friendly and ultra efficient and the quality of the food was simply outstanding - its definitely upmarket but without the pretension - I would go as far as to... More

The food was delicious. I had ravioli to start which was lovely and then we had fish as a main which was... More

This was a welcome return to Orsini and for those of you who like fine dining with traditional high quality service, this will be an experience you will always appreciate. The silver service is diligently arranged with thoughtful and multi-lingual staff. Each table is suitably spaced to allow privacy and discrete discussions in this cosy and conveniently located restaurant. The... More

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.
