“Really Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This restaurant had excellent service and food. For me, an Italian restaurant HAS to have great bread, and the bread here was so good with the garlic dipping sauce. The Eggplant Parm , another pasta dish, soups and salad were excellent as well. The inside looked to me like it had been recently renovated. I will definitely return.

“A Fine Fort Lauderdale Italian Restaurant Among Many”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

There are many good Italian restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale, but friends recommended Zuckerello's, so we gave it a try. We loved the atmosphere, our server, Connie, who was friendly and helpful with menu selections, and most importantly, the food.

Start by enjoying fresh, crunchy, delicious Italian bread with Z's garlic spread. If you like garlic, you will certainly love this combination. There is a large selection of interesting salads and appetizers, including "standbys" such as Caprese Salad and Caesar Salad, and some interesting dishes such as Spinach Eggplant Rollatini and Fried Rice Balls (my choice), the latter with a wonderful tomato sauce filled with chunky pieces of tomato. My partner's Caesar Salad was nicely done. He then had the Chicken Zuckerello, Chicken breast stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, prosciutto, roasted peppers, rosemary Marsala mushroom sauce, creamy mashed potatoes, chef's vegetables. Our dining companion had mussels swimming in more garlic. I had the Veal Florentine, tender medallions of veal covering sauteed spinach and in turn covered with eggplant slices and mozzarella - delish!

The restaurant has an excellent selection of wines, and some wonderful, homemade desserts. By all means, try their tiramisu. We will be going back.

“New Year's Eve”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We have spent many an evening here and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Unfortunately this all changed on New's Year's Eve. After making a 9:00pm reservation, we arrived only to have to wait over 30 minutes while we watched people obviously known to the manager be seated as soon as they arrived. We were offered no apologies and the Manager did not appear to be concerned. We eventually left and found another restaurant who were quite glad to have us there. Won't be going there again.

“Great Choice for New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

A group of 10 friends dined at Zuckerello's on New Year's Eve and all were pleased with their meals. Had choice of special New Year's Eve menu as well as regular menu. Reasonable prices for a holiday meal. Chose Zuckerello's since not holiday expensive price fixed menu. We had a variety of meals (fish, veal, pasta & chicken). All delicious. Attentive server and very fair prices for glasses of wine and cocktails. Recommend whether special evening or not.

“It Doesn't Get Better Than This”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Three out of four ordered the snapper dish. El Perfecto!!!! As Andy Reid would say, "can't say anything more than that". Get there before 6 p.m. and order off the early bird menu - included a delicious bowl of pasta bra joule soup and luscious slice of key lime pie. Nothing like this at home. We will be back very soon.
