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

Zooma has a very extensive menu featuring freshly made pasta as a speciality. My husband and I had seafood and found it fresh, cooked as preferred, and accompanied with savory sauces and vegetables. Service was attentive and never intrusive. We have been to Zooma on many occasions, and never have had an experience that we didn't fully enjoy.

What a pleasant surprise! My wife and I wanted to try a new restaurant and chose Zooma. From the valet to being seated, always felt welcomed. Monday-Friday, they have a three course price-fix of $15.95 pp. I had ceasar salad, my wife the caprese salad. Both great, good portions. Main meal, penne with meatballs/ricotta while my wife had gnocchi. Excellent!... More

We were here for dinner on a Wednesday. You will need reservations on Fri & Sat. The interior is warm and cozy. A good selection on the menu. Also the wood fired pizza is great. Pasta's are made in the front window. There is nothing like freshly made pasta. Red sauce, pesto or seafood sauce they're great. Good wine selection... More

Best calamari in memory and beautiful mushroom pizza. Greco di Tufo wine from Mastroberadino was perfect accompaniment. Also love the quirky late brothel decor, and the traditional with a twist menu.

The waiter was awesome, we had a water spill that went away so fast we weren't sure it even happened, and he brought out a beautiful dessert with a candle when he heard our daughter was turning 11 that day.
