I just dined at La Zucca twice during a three day stay in Venice, and when I saw recent mediocre reviews I just had to add my own review. For the prices they charge, and the quality and variety of food they offer, I do not know how you could find a better meal in Venice. The one night I was forced to eat elsewhere (Zucca closes on Sundays) I spent double the money and had truly dreadful food at a place recommended to me by hotel staff. Yes, you must make reservations in advance, and yes the menu is in ITALIAN... this IS Italy! I have watched waiters and waiters painstakingly and patiently go through the menu with people who did not understand Italian and translate EVERY DISH, so I don't know if some of the prior reviewers caught a waitress on a bad day, but I find the servers to be extremely gracious. Meanwhile, the food remains excellent... I had pumpkin soup, the pumpkin flan appetizer, delicious pastas, curried carrots, delicious desserts. This is a great place for you if you are vegetarian as there are many veggie selections, but also great meat dishes too. Many people I have sent to this place told me it was their favorite meal in Italy, so I cannot fathom how people can criticize it, but it's OK... stay away and I will have an easier time getting reservations! Grazie, La Zucca!
