Outstanding lunch value.

The 3 course lunch special was a pleasant surprise in that the portions were generous. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their selections. My chicken marsala was outstanding, and everybody raved about their soup. Caesar salad was very fresh and crisp. The bread they bring to the table is... read more

It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day in February and decided to try a restaurant on Federal Hill-wow what a great selection which made it difficult but our luck was with us! We did not have a reservation but we're treated as if we did. The staff starting with the Host were warm and friendly. We had a fabulous table... More

Snow storm Jonas hit today...the Zooma staff stayed open only to serve our table of 6. The staff were amazing and the food exceptional. Thank you Zooma for being dedicated to service and food. Your food was the best Italian I have ever had.

Great location, cute inside. Food was not great. Ordered the Caesar Salad, and Chicken Marsala. The salad was good but overloaded with dressing, pretty much ruined it. The Chicken Marsala had 2 very large pieces of chicken breast with skin. It was also swimming in sauce. Not a fan of skin. I often order this because it's lighter than other... More

We visited Federal Hill early Sunday evening walking the area looking for a place to eat. We decided to have dinner at Trattoria Zooma. The staff is very friendly, our waiter Matt was the best and the foot was excellent. We will return next time we are in Providence and highly recommend this restaurant.

We had the charcuterie tray and it was a meal for two. One of the best appetites we have had. Great atmosphere and a very fun bar area.

Second time eating dinner here! Convenient valet parking (which helps on busy Federal Hill area) Food is and has always been delicious. Great variety, seafood, pasta, chicken, steak, veggies. Always a dish that is something special and I have never been disappointed. To me, more for friends, couples or adult family. In the summer, they have sidewalk seating, fun to... More

I rarely review anything but I was so let disappointed by our experience at this restaurant that I just had to share... We were visiting from NY with our two small kids- aged 1 and 5 and came in when the place was about 3/4 full. I've been to my share of restaurants where the staff was not "keen" on... More
