The waitress we had was Olga and she was wonderful. Very knowledgeable in the food and the wine.
The appetizers came out quick but it took over an hour to receive our entrees and they weren’t anything special. We would appreciate the wait if the restaurant was busy but there were only 3 tables including ours. Not even a 1/3 of the restaurant was full.
We were there for our 5 year wedding anniversary and weren’t amazed which sucks because we were going off of the high reviews this place got. The food was ok but was recommended a great wine by Olga.

After vocalizing our displeasure they did comp our meal which was unexpected and much appreciated.

Overall, we may go back in the future.

Zucca is one of the best restaurants in Toronto. It is where we bring friends who visit and we are never let down. The pastas are too die for! The whole fish is terrific! All around a wonderful experience!

The food was excellent and so was the service, although a little slow. Our biggest problem was the noise level - very hard to have a conversation. I did say I would recommend the restaurant to friends but I would certainly warn them that the noise level is VERY high.

One of our favourite restaurants in Toronto, and we have been to many. Not fancy, but creative Italian cuisine.

The food is always so great here! Close to home. Definitely one of my favourite places in the city for fish. The service is always great and my husband and I love ducking out for an impromptu date night here.

Overall very good with excellent service. All three courses very good but pasta entree not as hot as I like it to be (why do I never remember to tell server how important this is to me?) Tables so close I could almost follow conversation of party next to me. Still, overall I enjoyed it.

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.
