We had reservations for Siena across the street but when we arrived we realized we were there on our last visit and wanted to try something new. We walked over to zooma. It has a nice layout we decided to wait for a seat by the window which was a smart choice. I ordered the chicken piccata and my wife... More

I have to admit when my wife and I first decided to try Zooma I was a little skeptical. I anticipated a typical “Hill” experience of portions that were too large and menu void of creativity. Were we ever surprised. I think the first thing that tipped us off that we were in for a great meal was we overheard... More

It sounds great -- pasta made on site, lots of interesting ingredients, etc. But the food is just average. It is a time warp -- going back to the '60's. Gnocchi were OK but not great, even though it is a specialty of the restaurant. The "pockets" with wild mushrooms sounded neat, but the pasta was hard and the taste... More

We accompanied another couple to this place and based on their comments our expectations were high. We had 6:00pm reservations and were immediately shown to our table. There was a speaker blaring brassy Latin music above our table. We asked if something could be done about it and the waiter promptly turned down the volume. He returned to tell us... More

We were a group of four, looking to continue our morning's business discussions over lunch. Zooma offers a comfortable environment for that, so it worked well. We had two guests from the Southeastern U.S., and they asked for Italian Cuisine, something they don't get that much of in the south. Zooma turned out to be the perfect choice. On this... More

The concierge of our hotel recommended this restaurant for our party of 8, including 4 children ages 11-14. Bethanny, our server, was perfect. The atmosphere and decor is cozy yet chic. Two women were making homemade pasta in the front window. Great wine menu. The antipasti platter, calamari and fried motz were delicious. Kids tried the pizza which was very... More

We happened to go to this restaurant because The Hill was particularly crowded on Saturday evening 8/23/14. We were very happy with the atmosphere. It is not traditional Italian buit very trendy. So if you are looking for the sultry, smokey Tuscany atmosphere- keep walking. The food is very pricey and the portions are small. However, its tastey and fresh.... More

Excellent! We have had lunch here twice in a year and absolutely love it..there were 10 of us that arrived without reservations and they are always accommodating. Our group comes up to Rhode Island every august for a adult jazz camp and on the last day we have lunch together. The pasta and wine are great.

Went for lunch and had two entrees: sachetelli and a mergherita pizza. The sachetelli pasta was out of this world, awesome, superb, perfect, over the top. The pizza was good too. Service was excellent. Will definitely visit again the next time we are in Providence.
