About
The concept of Zuckerello's Italian Restaurant began in November of 1989 in the mind of Adam Zucker. His desire was to operate a neighborhood restaurant and bar. It was important to him that Zuckerello's be a place where locals could come and dine in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. After 12 years, in 2001, Eli Biton joined Adam in this endeavor, and pursued the same envision for the concept of Zuckerello's Italian Restaurant. THROUGH BOTH OF THEIR EFFORTS AND THEIR WONDERFUL STAFF, ZUCKERELLO'S HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR RESTAURANTS IN FT. LAUDERDALE. A FEW MEMBERS OF THE STAFF HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH ZUCKERELLO'S FOR THE PAST 32 YEARS.

Love this place, great Italian food in a super friendly atmosphere. Cheese ravioli, scarpiello, lasagna and chicken Micheal Angelo were all great. Be sure to order some fried mozzarella!

I went back after I had my first bad experience about a month ago to give it another try . I ordered Veal Marsala and it was excellent . You could cut the Veal Medallions with a fork . They were so tender and cooked...just right . The Marsala Sauce was sweet and finished off the dish . It came with a side of Pasta that was cooked just right . The Service was excellent !More

For the First time in 5 years we had just an average experience while dining there . The Service was atrocious . It was no fault of the Waiter . He was sat two parties over five after he started with us . It's no...excuse , he should have turned us over to another Server once he realized he had to neglect us . I was served a flat Coca Cola and he never made it back to the table to correct it . The Veal Parm I was served was tough seemed like it was breaded days ago and wasn't fresh .He never made it back to our Table to correct it . My partners meal was very good . This was the first time ever I noticed the Owner wasn't in the Building . Could this be why our experience wasn't as pleasant as past experiences . I will definitely go back and try again hoping this was just an anomaly ,More

We were greeted Ike old friends and enjoyed the most delicious veal French in memory. Outstanding service from folks who obviously enjoy their work. You won't be sorry if you choose Zuckerellas.

Every time I go to Zuckerello’s they treat us like we are family. They greet us with a big smile. The waitstaff is great and make you want to come back. Every time I’ve had dinner the food is excellent. I recommend it to all...my family and friends.More

This is a great Italian restaurant with very good food and large portions, easily two dinners for most. I love the many chicken entrees and their pasta Bolognese is excellent. They give you fresh hot bread and have an early bird special that includes soup...or salad and key lime pie, which is excellent. I have both the specials and regular menu and will not become a regular. Happy hour drinks are 2 for 1 -- cannot beat that. Excellent service, I think many of the servers have been there awhile and seem to know many of the customers. Will be back.More

What a great restaurant, barely a bit more than a short walk from Ft. Lauderdale Beach. No matter what your looking for, you'll find it at Zuckerello's, ... appetizers, entrees, main courses, drinks and desserts, ... all with excellent prices. And, if you're ever not...happy, just ask for Steve, ... he WILL make it right!More

I've lived in the area for a while but have never tried Zuckerello's. We popped in on a Tuesday night and it was packed! This was a good sign. Our server was efficient and the food was delicious. There is nothing frou frou here. Traditional...Italian dishes . I had the pasta with bolognese and hubby had chicken parm. We split a Caesar salad. Everything was heavy and delicious. Portions were large. We will be back soon!More
