Great spot for good food and drink. Wife and I started with a flight of wine. 3 2oz pours of great red wines. Mostly Italian as recommended by Armando and all were excellent. Drank those with a small pizza appetizer. Bolagnese and frutti di mare lasagna were phenomenal with a glass of wine. Matt was very attentive and personable and... More

Although the restaurant was quite busy when we arrived, the staff were very friendly and helpful, setting us up with a table for six in just a few minutes. We ordered from both the prix fixe and a la carte menus, and all our choices were more than generous in size, and very good quality. My lasagna was a bit... More

This was our first visit to Zooma, though our friends have been here several times and recommended it highly. Even though it was a busy Saturday night, and in the midst of restaurant week, we were seated promptly, and water, bread and oil arrived quickly. Our excellent waiter (Matt), reviewed the exhaustive menu, specials and his personal recommendations. We shared... More

Stopped in for lunch while on Federal Hill on a Monday. Not many restaurants open Mondays. Enjoyed their three course menu for $15. Great selections for both the app and main course. Both were delicious and plentiful. Try the gelato for dessert, the pistachio was my choice but next time will try the salted caramel.

Good points are that they have free valet and the service is good. Our meal was not good. The fried eggplant was awful... way over done and couldn't even tell that I was eating eggplant. The pasta and chicken was fair. The pasta was OK but the chicken was overdone and dry.

Girls night out. Service was attentive friendly and professional. We got the dop mozzarella special. It was not what I expected. It was fried and no prosciutto. In retrospect, I wonder if it was the wrong dish. My friend's pasta dish was not cooked. Some of the pasta was crunchy. My veal was ok. Tough and boring. Too much lemon... More

I've been to this restaurant at least a dozen times this year alone and I have yet to experience anything wrong. That goes for bartenders, wait staff and cuisine. I've been for drinks at the bar, lunch dates, business dinners and now for Thanksgiving dinner and it's always fantastic. The menu offers some well know dishes as well as some... More
