This restaurant is one of the only pasta restaurants in Providence that actually makes their own pasta. So with that being said, if you want fresh pasta this is one of the places to go while visiting Providence. There is also a private party room in the back so it is a great location for business gatherings. Highly recommend!

Service is always wonderful. My last visit, I tried the gnocchi with butternut squash and cheeses. It was delicious. Portions are large. Two people can share. Hand made pastas and sauces. My kids love the spaghetti and meatballs. Save room for dessert!! It will be worth the calories!!

A feast at Trattoria Zooma was part of our trip to Providence. Bravo! Bravo! to Angelo for making it a wonderful experience. He is proud of his Italian heritage, his restaurant and his now native Providence. Our six course meal, served family style, was all you would expect and more from a restaurant that prides itself in true Italian hospitality... More

We just are at Zooma. There was no kid menu, but they offered to make kid friendly pizza. I ordered spaghetti that was around 15 and asked to include a few veggies. When I got the bill I was charged 26. The kids ordered chocolate milk and it was weird and lumpy. They didn't drink it. The waitress never asked... More

The home made marinara sauce was deliciously seasoned and... More

First-you can see them making your pasta, the kitchen is open and the drinks are amazing! The price is reasonable and worth every cent. I've had many lunches and dinners here and have NEVER been disappointed. On one occasion I was on the hill shopping...I could feel a migraine coming on so I rushed in to get something to eat....

It was a distinct pleasure to take our family out to Trattoria Zooma for dinner last week. It has an excellent location in Little Italy in Providence right near the main square. We were seated near the bar but noise was no problem. Service was prompt and attentive. Our entrees included ravioli, salmon and risotto, all of which were given... More

Fresh food with homemade pasta. Great calamari. Gnocchi tasted like tomato paste. Friendly servers. Very expensive. Server knew extensively about the options.

We were walking through the streets of Federal Hill, a quaint, historic section of Providence in search of a restaurant. There was no shortage of choices!! When we walked into Zooma, we noticed a small room to the left of the entrance with a table sprinkled with flour and filled with cooking utensils..that is where they make their homemade pasta!!...
