Love the authenticity of this place and the care they take in their food preparation and presentation. I came back especially for the branzino which is beautiful grilled and simply served with excellent olive oil and fleur de sel. Perfect! The veggies were also excellent and the prosecco they serve is one of the nicest I've had. Warm and knowledgeable service, a very personable owner. A lovely spot that I will gladly return to.

Always excellent, we were four and two ordered a pasta ragu and two ordered the branzino.
Both dishes were terrific. Must confess I thought they said the sides were included with the branzino and ordered 3 of them, all superb but got a little pricey!

The appetizer for shooter was pretty good, but the main course of squid ink pasta and fruit de mare was very mediocre food, and pretty well tasteless

To be honest, although the food was tasty, the fact that the fish fillet was less than three ounces and $32 was ludicrous.

Service was good.

Ambiance: 4/5 its a nice and cozy restaurant with good decor and dim lighting.

Food: 3/5 its decent, but it didn’t blow me away- especially for those prices. Came in expecting much more depth in flavour, and unfortunately was not impressed.

Value: 3/5 High quality ingredients with poor execution leaving you wanting more. The prosciutto entree was the best dish, and the tagliatelle was fresh but the sauce lacked something. The steak was just steak, on a bed of greens, cooked well but again lacking something.

Service: 4/5 Service was ok, noticeable lulls between table clearing and drink refilling when the restaurant wasn’t that busy, but they were friendly.

Overall wouldn’t really visit again for the price.

Delicious food. One of our friends seem to have gotten smaller portions of the same dish as another friend. When this was brought to the attention of the waitress, the concern was dismissed and we were told that it just looked like a smaller portion due to use of different shaped plates.

We were there Sat Feb 24, 2018 for dinner. My husband and I and friends, have been there several times. Food is great. Although I must say the service was disappointing. Not from a standpoint of making us wait at all, or forgetting things, just from a point of impatience. Our server did not have any patience for questions or uncertainty with the menu. My husband tends to rely on the server to ask what their recommendations are and sometimes needs a few minutes. She clearly did not have the patience and made some snarky remarks. Our entire table noticed her demeanor. Once our coffees were down, she circled our table non stop , so I suggested to our friends that we ask for the bill as it is clear she had somewhere to be. As we were the last table in the restaurant (2nd last had just left and it was not closing time yet) as soon as we signed the bill she snatched it aggressively from the table and bolted. Everyone at the table was a bit shocked at the behavior.

In any event, the chef is great, runners are so sweet and pleasant, but as I was a server in another life (long ago), I must say.. if you don't like working with people, then don't. It reflects badly on all the other people that are there working hard to make it a good experience for customers and it only takes that one person to make you rethink the entire experience.

Every time I go to Zucca with my wife and friends, we always have a wonderful experience and are never disappointed. The service is impeccable and the food is fabulous. The menu changes at times and the new dishes offered are stupendous! The ambience is beautiful and is not so loud that you have to yell or strain to hear the conversation with friends. There is never any rush while you dine even when you’re the last ones to leave. Lol! I would recommend this to anyone who lives or visits midtown Toronto. Thank you to everyone at Zucca!!!

The homemade pasta (we had the cheese ravioli and tomato sauce) is the best in Toronto for texture and flavour. The snapper on a bed of grains with a vegetable torte was perfect. Wine recommendation was excellent and service was personalized and delightful without being intrusive. The ambiance was relaxed and good acoustics allowed us to have conversation throughout the meal without the need to scream or not hearing what the other was saying. We will be back and telling our friends to put Zucca on their dining list.

I mistakingly booked a table for six for a Sunday night that was suppose to be Friday and when we actually arrived on Friday at 8:30pm what I thought was our night, to my surprise I realized I had mixed up the two date. The manager encouraged us to remain and that he would figure something out and low and behold within 15 minutes, a table for six was put together and from that point on we had a wonderful night. The food is delicious and the service is spectacular. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!

Excellent food. I very much enjoyed the Cornish hen, which was surprisingly spicy. While I like spicy food, this should be mentioned when ordering as it could be a problem for some. My husband had an excellent pasta dish for his main course, but it was quite a small portion, more like an appetizer. Service was great.q
