“Always a good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Been here many times. Tonight was not a disappointment. Early bird specials. We haven't tried the Eggplant parmigiana before...Oh my god...the best...(next to mine, of course), Veal parmigiana was good, Shrimp Scampi was good, Fried Calamari appetizer was very good! ...lightly fried this time, not chewy, tender and fresh. But... it was early and they pay more attention to the food. Our waiter Janez was attentive and one of the owners Eli always comes over to the table. Too bad it's so dark inside, no bar scene or view. Go there for the food, not scenery.

“Always excellent Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Last night my Partner and I dined here again. At the door we were greeted by the always smiling Eli and seated with our favorite waiter, Solo. We arrived in time for the early-bird special, offering a complete dinner for the price of any entre. Craig ordered the Shrimp Scampi and I had the Ravioli stuffed with crabmeat and topped with baby shrimp. Both were delicious, generous portions. We started with their wonderful, warm Italian bread with garlic spread and fresh, crisp salads. The entres arrived piping hot and freshly cooked to order. Nothing canned or pre-prepared here! After dinner we enjoyed the home-made Tiramisu and freshly brewed Decaf coffee. Everything was wonderful, espescially the personal attention that Solo provides. Highly recommended!

“A sure bet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Zuckerello's is consistently good - good food, good service. This is the place to get Italian-American staples that never disappoint. The pasta is al dente, the bread is fresh and hot, the meatballs are tender, and the pasta fagioli will satisfy your soul. There's nothing complicated or highbrow here. But, sometimes one just wants a simple, hearty, Italian meal. If so, go here. You will be warmly greeted and efficiently served good food in a pleasant environment. Buon appetito!

“Dinner with good friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

My wife and I had dinner with friends and had a delicious meal. Our server Eva was pleasant and served us with a smile and a good attitude. We ordered drinks and 4 waters with lemon which we got in a very timely fashion along with bread and oil and garlic. We had the Sicilian Sausage, Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Milanese(which was excellent) and the Veal Parmigiana. Zuckerello's is always good and a nice place to go for dinner. The prices are reasonable.

“water”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

We are not the wine drinkers and when we told the waitress that we only wanted water things went down from there. We ordered the lasagna and that was it . The bread did come once and the lasagna was delivered to the table. We was from out of town and they didn't make you feel welcome at all we talked to the waitress three times including us saying thank you she talked to us twice the food was good but ask for a male waiter because we watched as the waiters took the time with the customers hopefully she can cheer up
