“lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great service, nice atmosphere, well priced high end Italian. I had risotto with peas and mushrooms that was exquisite. A Ceasar Salad worthy of mentioning with freshly made dressing. Would definitely go back!

“Wonderfully Fresh Salads!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I have visited Zarletti's for lunch several times over the past two months and ordered the Verdura Mist salad more than once and also a panini on one visit. The Verdura Mist salad (ordered with chicken breast) is really fresh and the chicken was cooked perfectly. The panini was also a great treat. The service here is very attentive and friendly. This is a very nice place for lunch.

“It is about the food ...............”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I am Italian, born and raised but I do not pretend and demand the same food that we have in the old country. I understand that there are many ingredients that can not be found in USA and when you even find them they do not taste the same. For those who have been in .my old country you know that certain vegetables have different tastes. Most of the produce in Italy is not hybred, not developed to travel long distances but raised and consumed locally. That is the biggest difference
Some of the dishes=Over whelmed pasta with strong sauces, mussels that have non of the finesse of the original dish that is typically infused with onions and anice,............. They did a good job though with the rabbit ragu and service at the bar was friendly and accomodating.

The service by Matt was exquisite. He was well informed and his service was anticipatory.
The place is cute and cozy reminescent of a neighborhood small restaurant

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Visited during Downtown Dining week so maybe didn't fair view. The place was very busy. Ran out of veal. My second choice of Grouper was fantastic. Rest of family second choice of Mushroom pasta was mediocre. Noisy atmosphere. Service was attentive. Probably won't go back.

“Great Value for Downtown Dining Week!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

My husband and I liked everything about this place: good atmosphere, great bartender, nice wine selection. We tried the prix fixe menu for Downtown Dining Week. What a value. My husband's pistachio crusted grouper was prepared perfectly. I went for the osso bucco which was outstanding. The meal included desserts which we were to full to eat but looked great. The place is small but we enjoy eating at the bar anyway and there are a few high tops there. The owner came around and greeted everyone.
