An amazing surprise and a jewel that I would gladly detour off I4 at any opportunity to come back!

The food was excellent and the host was even better. What a great spot for fine food!!! Bring your own wine and prepare to be surprised as the food quality will rival any

Very tasty food and good service. Let's face it FL is a trourist trap and most of the food here is awful the other is edible but not great. This is the best place to eat in the Lakeland/Auburndale/Winter Haven/ Plant City area. Everything is cooked fresh and the vegetables are done correctly. They are not mushy or frozen crap.... More

I have eaten here many times. Each time the food was delicious!!! The one thing that I like the most is that the dining room is intimate and feels somewhat like you are in their home. Make sure to make reservations!!

Cafe Zuppina is a quaint restaurant with very kind and personable owners who take pride in pleasing their customers. Their food is prepared with unique seasonings that make each entree incredibly tasty and satisfying. There is no other restaurant in Lakeland that compares to Cafe Zuppina. It is the perfect place for a quiet date or a meal with friends.... More

Best food anywhere...the Lamb chops are out of this world the spicy seafood soup is to die for! The chicken kabob is heavenly. All home cooked not too salty like most novice chefs. Everything on the menu is awesome! Can't wait for my next visit!

I love trying new foods from different cultures around the world, and I would have to say turkish/mediterranean food is so good i might even have to marry it, after eating here. It's just the food is so good in flavor while still being in the healthy category. I've never been into Brussel sprouts but the way they cook them,... More

We have been to Café Zuppina numerous times. The food is fantastic every time. Definitely middle eastern but with the owner's own flair. My wife can't get away from the veggie plate but everything is excellent. The restaurant seats 30 or so diners and the staff wants to make sure everything is right. Last I checked they are open Mon-Fri... More
