Old School Italian (in a good way)

I visited as part of a group of 6. Good service. Lovely salad. Old fashioned lasagne with lots of cheese. Sadly, didn't have room for a canoli. Our group had a great time.

A very reasonably priced lunch special started with warm, homemade bread and a very good olive oil, followed by a choice of salad of soup. My Caprese salad was generous, with a good quality of mozzarella and very fresh basil. I chose the salmon, which was perfectly cooked. The special also included a choice of gelato or a cannoli. My...

Went here for a dinner meeting and what a great place! Food was excellent along with the presentation of the food. The wait staff was very friendly and professional. And loved how they framed out the beautiful pictures in the room. Definitely going here again!

General Manager was great but even his attentiveness could not make up for poor service. Food was just OK. Will not plan a return visit

Hi, couple weeks ago we decided to finish our vacation at Zooma having a great dinner. We wait 15 min for table, 25 min to make the order, and then 25 min for out dinner. It was 8-9 pm and we have 3 hungry and tired kids and grandmother. The dishes were pretty good but sizes were very small for... More

Probably our 15th visit and as always great food and great service. The best home made pasta and you can watch if you'd like. Spoke at length with Armando the restaurant manager to commend him about how much we love Zooma.

Armando coordinates great wine tasting dinners pairing servings with selected wines for a very reasonable price. Enjoy with a party of friends or go alone and meet some new ones.

We came for lunch on a Saturday when almost all the other Italian restaurants on the Hill were closed. Had the osso bucco tuberri which were delicious. Well they better be at 28$ a pop. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce although a bit to thick was flavorful My wife not being very hungry got just the... More

I ate at Zooma last summer during restaurant week and had a very good lunch, so was looking forward to a fine dinner. It was a busy Saturday nite and our table for two was in a crampt space by the window. Once seated, there wasn't a lot of room. Our server, Kevin, seemed to have a couple of tables... More
