a nice place to visit!
We found this restaurant on Yelp and were not disappointed! This is a good restaurant to go. The food was good, the service was nice and fast. The outdoor patio is very cool and quiet. The truffle fries are perfect!!!

Another enjoyable Zocca feed
Another enjoyable meal at Zocca! Daniel was a most friendly,accomodating and polite server.He handled our "challenging" group with professional poise. We enjoyed the stuffed portabella and baked artichoke starters.We all orderd the salmon entree but unfortunately, this most anticipated dish was not "as delicious" as we remember from a late lunch/early dinner seating in December.The saffron broth lacked the rich, developed flavor that we so enjoyed and the salmon was over-grilled (I think it was poached in December?).For dessert, we devoured an opera torte, apple-walnut bread pudding and apple/cranberry tart. All were SUPER-YUM.The bread pudding had the perfect not-too-mushy-texture and the flaky,sweet,butter tart crust was the sleeper fave!

Great service and good food situated along a quiet stretch of the riverwalk made Zocca an excellent choice for a quiet, intimate lunch.

A Great Afternoon Had by All!
There were six of us for lunch, none of us having been there before. Everything about Zocca was great. Great menu, great waiter, delicious salads, soups, sandwiches and other lunches and desserts. The servings are very generous and the price is right. We will definitely return and tell others about this wonderful restaurant in our hometown of San Antonio.

Attentive service, great food, reasonable price. Relatively noisy but cannot complain as our kids were no exception.

Food was fantastic, but service
Food was fantastic, but service was absolutely terrible. We sat outside on the river, which was a beautiful view and would definitely recommend sitting by the river (if you're alright with ducks walking around the tables). But again the main point of this entry is that while the food was top notch, you can expect to basically be on your own throughout the meal. Sure people will come by and ask if you're okay, but you can tell they have somewhere else to be. We went through the entire meal without having our water glasses filled, despite asking multiple times. Never received the glasses of wine that we ordered. We decided to give coffee and dessert a try. The marscapone cheesecake was delicious, but the coffee was cold.

on the riverwalk
great place- we started off outside on the Riverwalk and when it got a bit chilly our server moved us inside where we had dessert by the glow of the many candles- very nice atmosphere and great waiter

Enjoyed a great lunch. However, the pasta small portion is indeed, pretty small. So, keep that in mind when ordering pasta. Overall, food and service was very good!

We had a wonderful experience
We had a wonderful experience at Zocca! We were seated at an indoor table and still had views of the river and a lovely breeze. The wait staff were very attentive and efficient. The restaurant manager did an outstanding job of going over gluten free options on the menu (I have celiac) and making sure that everything was to our liking. We will definitely come back!
4/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our dinner here. A wonderful patio table next the River Walk was reserved for us. Our waiter was fantastic. They have a wonderful gluten free menu, but you have to ask for it. It is not noted any where on their regular menu. Waiter was very knowledgeable about what main courses could be made gluten free. Even brought me out some gluten free bread. My husband enjoyed their fantastic olive bread before dinner. My husband enjoyed the Pappardelle as his main course and enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the brick oven chicken. The chicken was very tasty, but included some dark meat which I didn't care for. We enjoyed a crème Brule for dessert.

A hidden oasis from the crowds, great food, well prepared and presented at reasonable prices. An international (NATO) recommendation!
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The location is a quiet spot on the normally hectic River Walk. Our waiter was a little forgetful but the manager was always present and helped immediately with anything that was overlooked. The food was amazing, I had the Caprese (wonderful heirloom tomatoes and housemade cheese) and the Papperdelle and they were both amazing. I am Italian and usually very hard to please when it comes to Italian food but they were amazing. Also my husband loved his Alfredo, normally he only eats mine :)

Great early dinner place for kids
My husband and I brought the kids down to the River Walk for the first time. We were looking for something with good food and a view. Going early and sitting outside made us comfortable bringing a 3 and 7 year old to this nice restaurant. The mussels appetizer and Sea Bass were delicious. The kids pizza is large enough to share between 2 kids. The seafood risotto was a little bland for our taste. The lasagna was also good. Service was great.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
FRESH & DELICIOUS
Our order consisted of:
- Garlic Bread & Oil-Balsamic Vinagrette Dipping Sauce with Basil
- Crab & Alfredo Pasta with Asparagus shavings
- Quattro Formagio Pizza (& I added Heirloom tomatoes & Basil)
All of the items were fresh, handmade, handcrafted taste dishes. No imitations here!
Perfect! & the whole meal didn't cost more than $30. That's for two people with an appetizer!!! The price was on point!!!
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
I reserved and I put in the comments that it was my girlfriends birthday and they took care of all. The food was great specially the Lamb chops. At the end they surprised us with a beautiful desert. I highly recommend Zocca and I'll be there next time I visit SA.
6/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service that we received that night was terrific! When we finished dinner, we wanted to enjoy an after dinner drink outside to take in the scenery. Our waiter made sure we got the attention of the bar server and got taken care of in a prompt manner. I would return to this restaurant.

Great River Walk Restaurant
Enjoyable restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating next to the River Walk. Service and food are great! Relaxing atmosphere where you can have a quiet conversation and enjoy dining out.

Fabulous food and service
We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate a birthday and a fun trip to San Antonio! All of us dining together loved the dishes we ordered. The warm bread served was delicious and the server was attentive. Best of all, the server brought out a beautifully decorated tile with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate swirls along with a lovely presented dessert.

This is a very good place to take a customer out to dinner or lunch. They will not dissapoint in ambiance and quality of food.

Food was very good as well was the service. The restaurant itself is nice and the price is not bad at all.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were excited to try Zocca's. Its was our first "date" in a while. We were extremely happy with EVERYTHING. From the hostess to our server to the food. Wine was great. We had the Arancini as our appetizer and were blown away. We watch Food Network like crazy and always wanted to try Risotto. We had the Seafood Saffron Risotto. It was like a "party" in our mouth. We couldnt stop talking about how great it was. I would truly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a romantic atmosphere. Service was very good. All in all we were extremely satisfied. Thank you!!
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff was wonderful. Very attentive and helpful. The food was good and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed our visit while in San Antonio.

A Perfect Fifth Wedding Anniversary
We did not have any plans for our anniversary dinner in San Antonio, TX on the Fouth of July so we did an Open Table search so see what might be available. The ratings and comments for Zocca were positive so we selected it for our celebratory meal and made a reservation. It turned out to be an excellent choice! The service provided by Ron was outstanding. He was attentive but not overbearing so we were able to enjoy a relaxed and unrushed meal. He was very accomodating to our special food preparation requests so, obviously, he knew what the chef(s) could and could not do in that regard. Cocktails, salads, soup, risotto, and wine were all outstanding. And the desserts -- Ron suggested the tiramisu and a lemon tart . Fantastic!!!!!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best on the Riverwalk!
The Papardelle was wonderful beyond explanation. Delicious bread and dip, too. Will definitely be revisiting.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took some colleagues and an out-of-town guest to dinner at Zocca and everyone was very pleased with their meal. My seafood risotto was excellent. We enjoyed sitting outdoors at a quiet section of the Riverwalk. And the restaurant comped our parking. Very pleased with the experience.
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I proposed to my girlfriend at this restaurant the manager have us free champagne and krembrula plus chocolate cover strawberrys. Andy was great and took pictures of the event. We got way more food than we could eat! Appetizer was the only flaw didn't taste very good but the entrees where excellent! The view was looking at the river but they sat people in front of our view, overall I would go back many times,

great for a business dinner
I took some out-of-town colleagues to dinner. They wanted to go to the Riverwalk, and after a short search, I decided on Zocca based on menu, prices and, of course, location. I requested an outside table so we could talk. It was perfect, except that it is summer in San Antonio, so slightly warm! Zocca has the best calamari that I've ever tasted. All three of us enjoyed our dinners - lamb, pasta, and sea bass. Service was great, and there is free valet parking. As we left, there was a large and loud bunch of folks in the bar area having a great time. I will definitely go back.

A slice of Heaven on the Riverwalk
We celebrated a birthday at Zocca and the evening was perfect. We sat outside and it was breezy and beautiful. The Westin is on the quiet side of the Riverwalk and not much foot traffic so you were not distracted by walkers. The wait staff was exceptional..the food delicious...the setting breathtaking on the River. Than you Zocca for memories!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food , Very Enjoyable evening
My wife an I went to Zocca for our 20th Anniversary. The food was excellent and the service was great. The wine that the waiter suggested went well with our meals. The only problem I had was that a group with small kids were seated after us, next to us. It distracted us a bit from the romantic setting. But still, overall we enjoyed our evening out to celebrate our Anniversary.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Zocca does a very good job for a River Walk restaurant. The setting on that particular part of the river is very pleasant. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is pleasing. The food is very good.

GOOD HOTEL RESTAURANT
Is a good Westin Bar Restaurant with food and service that don't disappoint ......Casual great outside tables at the Riverwalk..
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance and food, service ok
We went on a Wednesday night and I'm not sure they had anyone assigned to seat diners. We were seated by a waiter and then waited for 10-15 minutes for the waiter assigned to our table to show up. Another 15 minutes to get our wine. Once we got through that, the meal was great. My daughter loves calimari, and the appetizer rated as one of the best she has had. Lightly fried, not too oily. We also enjoyed the garlic stuffed bread and the olive bread. The ravioli with veal meatballs was outstanding and the portion was huge; more than enough to take some home. The atmosphere is great. Quiet little area on the river walk with great people watching views. We will go back again.

GOOD HOTEL RESTAURANT
Is a Casual Hotel Restaurant with great food and friendly service. The terrace is nice next to the River. Is a typical Westin style and I like it.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful dining room
Spanish influenced dining area with adjoining bar. Well trained servers and delicious Italian food. Soothing guitar music playing. We loved this place so much we dined there twice while in San Antonio.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is delightful. The atmosphere is modern. Highly recommended. Outdoor seating is right on the riverwalk. Indoor seating has a great view of the riverwalk.

The food was very good, service was great. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Felt the portions were a little small for it being an Italian restaurant. But overall, would eat here again.

Great food great view.
The food is very nice. The outdoor tables are right next to one of the quieter areas of the riverwalk.
Great place for a peaceful dinner.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio. We started out with a meat, cheese & roasted vegetable appetizer plate, moved on to a fantastic Golden Beets salad and ended with a Margarita pizza. The atmosphere is very Tuscan and cozy. You can get a table inside or outside overlooking the Riverwalk. I would suggest a reservation for dinner. This is also a great breakfast restaurant.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sitting in the restaurant with good friends watching the boats go by with happy tourists go by makes for a happy evening.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Please sir, can I have some more?
My husband and I stayed at the Westin Riverwalk, this past weekend, to celebrate our two-year wedding anniversary. After booking the room, I made reservations for Zocca and I am SO glad I did. I feel like anytime I spend a good amount of money on something, I am usually disappointed. This was probably the best meal I have ever had in my life! I had the lamb chops and he had the sea bass for our entrees. For appetizers we ordered the Arancini and also received some calamari. Everything was delicious!!! The service was incredible and we were made to feel very special. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Zocca! We WILL be back!!!

Chicken Marsala was delicious! Hubby got steak pizza which was just ok. We sat inside due to the cold and the ambiance was lovely. Food was good. Service was slow but very kind. The hostess greeted us as if she knew us. Overall, good experience.

Very nice hotel on a quiet piece of the River Walk. Great food and service. Outside dinning is a must in good weather!

We took our son and his fiancé here for dinner, thinking the Christmas knights on the river would be on (alas they were not). Nonetheless we had a lovely view of the river, impeccable service, excellent food all around. A really enjoyable evening.
