“I'm still hungry...”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

It had been a while since we were last at Zucchi's, so decided to go for a business-related dinner.
The food was good ( a well prepared rib-eye, wild salmon, and a gnocchi dish were the 3 entrees ordered), but the sides were a disappointment. The gnocchi entrée did not come with sides, so there was an extra charge of $6.50. The others of us ordered sides of asparagus and risotto. I'm afraid that I don't feel that four half-stalks of asparagus qualifies as a side. I don't have a large appetite, but Ieft feeling a little deprived-my salmon portion was also skimpy. We too, as another reviewer mentioned, felt the service was slow, and the restaurant on a Monday was not at all crowded.

“Solid Italian”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Lasagna was very flavorful with a sauce that was not as heavy as some. Great service. A bit dark on the inside.

“Outstanding service, good Italian food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice neighborhood place. The food was good although not exceptional. The service was excellent and the noise level was not bad.

“Good food, variable service”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We have had some great meals at Zucchi's, including last Friday night (12/7/12). One of the secrets is getting reservations and going earlier in the evening; tends to get very busy and disorganized later in the evening (our reservation on 12/7 was at 6 p.m.) Food was excellent; I had a rack of lamb special that was cooked as ordered and very well seasoned. Sides were excellent and portions were good. Two companions ordered sea bass, a regular item on the menu, and one said it was as good as he had found anywhere. In a very busy city, this is one of the best restaurants outside of the private clubs. Service can be slow.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Food was good, but way overpriced. $24.99 for an entree that should have been $12.99 at most. Don't go here unless you have money to burn.
