Larger space, good bar.

Enjoyable with good Italian food. They've just expanded to the space next door and are still working out the kinks, but worth a visit.

Michael. Owner chef, after 20 plus years, we call for reservations and not only does he remember what specials we enjoy but ahead of our visit has the wines we have really enjoyed. Lobster fra diablo is among the best and I love Giacommo's in the North End. The stuffed veal chop is perfection & the osco buco is so... More

Michael, the owner-chef, operates a small dining establishment which seats about 25 people. The menu is a combination of mediterranean and classic dishes such as his signature veal chop stuffed with spinach, prosciuto, and fontina cheese with a demi-glaze sauce. It is to-die-for. His caesar salad is outstanding as well as his calamari appetizer. His menu always includes a couple... More

Nothing good to say about this "Room of a Restaurant". If your meal is not edible give very serious thought to complaining. Your Chef; the owner will be at your table waving his "Butcher Hatchet" describing his feelings about your complaint. I need not go any further. If you don't mind meeting "The Butcher Chef" then Enjoy your inedible meal.... More

If you are a Carbonara fan you have to try the Pasta Carbonara at Zabagliones. It is not on the Dinner Menu so you have ask the chef to make it for you. I have had this dish is restaurants in Italy and the carbonara at Zabagliones puts them to shame. Of course the other entrees are amazing too but... More

Very cozy place with great food! Authentic Italian, and feels almost like you are in Italy! Wait staff is fantastic and the chef is top of the line! We have had the veal both times, and it is definitely a dish I would order again, when I go. I have never seen or had this at any other restaurant. Totally... More

Zabaglione's Restaurant is a cozy place, with individually prepared meals by the owner/chef. The regular menu along with daily specials provide ample choices for everyone. Each item is individually prepared therefore be prepared to enjoy the company of the others in your party. Portions are quite ample, the tastes are delectable, and the salads and sides are fresh and tasty.... More

All meals cooked to order by the owner/chef, Michael. Food is always freshly prepared and taste and presentation are as good as it gets. Northern Italian cuisine prepared to perfection. This restaurant is small and intimate...a perfect location for dinner with a special person. Since Michael takes great care to make each meal special, have an appetizer, some wine, and... More

We have been going here for over 15 years or so... the business is established, and you cannot Deny the experience, behind this chef.... go and taste it for yourself.......

We recently returned to this old favorite of ours, but ended up very disappointed, despite the excellent food. We have been coming here since the mid 1990's when we moved to the area, and we knew Zabagliones isn't known for speedy service. We expected to spend about one and one-half to two hours, and had early reservations (6:15pm) to avoid... More
