I love this place

Have many to Zampa many times and have never been disappointed. The food has been delicious every time and I find the price meets quality. Have recommended this place many times, in fact I have bought gift certificates for family several times.

Just came back from dinner at Zampa with our son and daughter-in-law. We were looking forward to it based on our son and daughter-in-law's experience having breakfast there. First impressions were quite promising. The restaurant in a small almost shack like building is actually quite attractive, albeit simple, inside. The menu looked very good with a number of appealing choices.... More

I hadn't been to Zampa's for awhile, and went with my boyfriend last weekend. I'm so glad I returned. While small, the restaurant really holds lots more folks than you'd expect without feeling crowded. Everything from the appetizer, to the Caesar salad (and I'm a stickler on that type of salad - so many places serve it limp and without... More

I frequented Zampa after discovering it a couple of years or so ago, and referred friends. However, when I went a few months ago, gone was the best bartender in the area and most of the familiar and friendly wait staff. After a meal that was bland and mediocre (including soggy greasy pomme frites) with the entree coming before an... More

The food is great and I love their breadsticks with their signature dipping sauce. I have never had a bad meal here, period, end of story. However, it's small, so make reservations or be willing to wait on the busy nights. Also their Mediterranean Shrimp dish use to be hotter and the bread better, but if you never had it... More

One of our three favorite restaurants in the Seacoast area !!! Cozy and Eclectic are two words I would use to describe the intimate atmosphere ! Great spot for a romantic dinner !!

Thought this would be an interesting place to celebrate. The highlights were the prosecco and the appetizers. We had the mussels and the fried brussel sprouts with prosciutto. The brussel sprouts were surprisingly light although there were some very fatty pieces of prosciutto. For entrees my husband ordered the Duck so Many Ways. It wasn't anything spectacular and was actually... More

I went to Zampa last week with 3 other women and had a great meal. We had a really friendly efficient server. We sat for quite awhile chatting after dinner and weren't rushed. It was a very relaxing enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend Zampa. Great food, not overly priced and great staff as well.

I enjoyed that this restaurant sources their food locally whenever possible and changes the menu with what is available. The restaurant is small, so reservations are suggested if you want to be sure you'll get a table. Everything was very clean and decorated tastefully. Our server was friendly. Prices were fair.

I've driven by many times and it always seems busy so my wife an I stopped in. We had no idea what we were about to discover. We had no reservation and fortunately there were 2 seats at the bar. Otherwise we would have missed out on one of the best restaurants in the area. Zampa uses as much locally... More
