Fun event

I went to Zooma with a large business group (50-75 people). We had several wine tasting stations and a variety of foods. The antipasti table was wonderful with a wide assortment of cheeses, olives, veggies, breads, and meats. Pizza was also available as well as a flat, stuffed ravioli (?). It... read more

My husband and I have been to Zooma a few times. Every dish we had was delicious. The fresh pastas are cooked perfectly. The salmon is my favorite. The meat and cheese board with olives is great appetizer.

Went to Federal Hill for lunch and wanted to try a new place and heard a lot of good about Zooma. It was better than I imagined. Beautifully decorated inside and we sat at a fancy booth. They had lunch specials listed in the menu and all looked so good. Three courses came for 14.99 what a deal! We ordered... More

We stayed in the Hilton nearby and walked down to Federal Hill, and were faced with an array of restaurants to choose from, and luckily choose Trattoria Zooma. We were a walk-in with no reservations, but they seated us immediately. Very fresh, deliciously paired Italian food. You can see that the chef thought about the flavors and which went well... More

While in Providence on business, we broke for lunch on Federal Hill. Trattoria Zooma caught our eye as we watched a chef making fresh pasta in the front of the restaurant. We were intrigued and hungry. Like a lot of Federal Hill restaurants, Trattoria Zooma offers luncheon specials. For around $15.95, you can choose from an awesome list...one appetizer, one... More

The Federal Hill district is populated with many good Italian restaurants. However, for our money, and time, Trattoria Zooma stands out. We are often driving through Providence on Sunday evenings and are glad to have Zooma as a great go-to spot. Why? First, and perhaps foremost, is the freshness of the fare. The pasta is made on the premises (check... More
