Very good. Not crowded lunchtime

Went there as second choice as nearby restaurant had long wait. Zarletti was empty. We were in a rush and asked waitress to provide quick service. She was more than up to the task and food came out quickly and was very good. Prices were ok and we were surprised that restaurant was not more crowded.

We dined at Zarletti's for the first time on Friday- a group of 7 people. The restaurant was very accommodating in giving us a nice round table in the front window. The service was great and all of the dinners were outstanding- everyone loved their food. The appetizers were a bit odd and not what we expected (hence a rating... More

I took a business associate here for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was modern and professional, but I could also see taking a date here for a romantic meal. The table spacing was a bit tight, though. Thank goodness the wait staff is skinny, but even then some of them had a tough time getting between the tables.... More

Went for a business dinner with ten people. Nice place, clean, good menu with nice pasta dishes. David the waiter was terrible. Acted as if he didn't want to be there. Every other table had bread - he never brought us any. Included a nice 18% tip for himself though. Never even asked how the food was...

I went to Zarletti with a group of five for a business lunch. The food is fantastic and the service is first rate. I ordered the pasta special, which was a ravioli dish stuffed with meat and cheese. The portion was generous-sized and the ravioli and sauce were as tasty as any I've enjoyed. Price points are $$$, but well... More

Yes they have fancy food like ossobuco and a great wine list but the service sucked. We were rudely greeted and taken outside to dine when I really wanted to dine indoors. When I asked for a table inside I was told they were booked while I saw many empty tables. For an establishment that wants to be in the... More

I wrote the following letter to the restaurant and wanted to share it with all of you: I wanted to share with you a horrible dining experience that I had earlier today attempting to go to Downtown Dining week at Zarletti.

Lunch was very very good. We all ordered panini sandwiches all different. I had the portobello mushroom with other items, my wife eggplant with goat cheese, and my daughter the prosciutto with cheese. Each was very well done and the taste was very good. The chips that came with the meal were excellent; a lot of crunch and tasty.
