“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Had a good meal here at Zucca e Melone after reading an old review in the NY Times. We started out with Charcuterie and these delightful light and airy rolls. My husband had a bone in veal chop and I had pork tenderloin that was made in an orange sauce. Opted for the tiramisu for dessert as well. This was not a traditional tiramisu but noneless it was quite good. If you are looking for authentic Milanese, this isnt your place, but if you are looking for something different, give it a try!

“Poor experience!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

The food is poor, badly presented and with no taste. Also the service is quite bad, my friend got her meal after everyone had almost finished eating. The excuse? "the chef forgot to do it!"

“Geniale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We went there for our Vantines-Dinner. Because we are swiss,we are used to eat earlier so we were the First in the Restaurant. The waiter really gave his whole attention to us. He recommended us the Best food and wine. We spent a perfect evening there!! Only to Recommend!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

The atmosphere is nice, but the menu is limited and the food is not always up to expectations. The service tends to be a bit slow. I do love the jar of marshmallows on the table close to the cash desk, but this is hardly enough to recommend the restaurant to visitors, especially from another town or country.

“Potato chips”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Salad was undressed tough lettuce. Though we were early diners, the specials were not available. The pasta was blah and the main course, at hefty prices, was a small portion of under seasoned chicken with a side of potato chips Has this place changed owners?
