What city name would you expect for this location? The results give you the name of the village (which may be the closest thing to a "postal city" here, it is used in the addr:city tags). The results also include various levels of administrative division. It all looks reasonable for a rural area far from a city. I'm not sure anything is missing.

Nominatim does not offer autocomplete or autosuggest. So it does not expand your search of "Zu" to "Zurich".

If you need an autosuggest/autocomplete function, you'll have to look to other geocoders, e.g. photon or pelias.

Example:
