    Enjoyed a lovely meal with dear friends. The food and wine were a great complement to the fabulous fellowship. It hardly seemed like we had been there any time at all when we realized we had been chatting and dining for 3 hours!! Very relaxing place to enjoy excellent cuisine that sets the standard for Northern Utah.

    I came in from out of town and wanted to eat somewhere that was not a fast food chain. I found Zucca and gave it a try. Every aspect from booking the reservation on their website to walking out the door was positive. The atmosphere was fun and lively, the food was phenomenal, and the stafirst was friendly. Would recommend to a friend and will be back.

    We dine out frequently and have been a great fan of Zucca's since it opened. The new chef is even better than before. They frequently have excellent specials, especially on Friday and Saturday. Their use of specialty cheeses and vinegars is particularly good. Their pasta is made in house, and they have some nice pizzas made in their special oven, but it is their interesting use of various sauces, nuts, olives, fruits, and herbs with their dishes, both with pasta and other fare (beef, pork, lamb, salmon, etc.), that we enjoy. Do note that since they prepare everything fresh daily, service can be slow when they are busy, but talk to the wait staff to hear interesting stories and back-grounds. It is a place to be enjoyed at your leisure.

    My husband and I were not impressed with the food. It was okay, but not what one would expect based on the prices. The salads were just greens and a few vegetables, nothing special. We both had a pasta. Mine was very ordinary with a sausage/tomato sauce. It was okay. My husband had the pasta with fruits de mer. The sauce was good, but it was very short on fruits de mer. Again, we would expect better quality for the price. Our server was very good and attentive. The service was the best part of the meal, unfortunately. We brought our own wine, did not have dessert, and our bill was $70 with a 20% tip. We could go back to try the pizza, but probably won't because we can get excellent pizza for half the price elsewhere.

    We love this restaurant. Read reviews that said service was slow, but we have never had that problem. We love he deli boards for appetizers allowing the chef to pick meats and cheeses, but this time we added grilled eggplant stuffed with ricotta and goat cheese with roasted onions and peppers in a divine fresh sauce. Husband had pork chops in gorgonzola sauce with potato mouselline and green beans which was heavenly. Pork chop was so tender. I had lobster ravioli in vodka sauce with extra lobster meat. Both meals were to die for. Finished up with gelato and coffee which was great as always. I always recmmend this place and go as often as I can, even though it's a tad bi pricey. Service was right on time - never slow...

    The Restaurant was nice. we had a reservation but still ended up sitting up against the opening to the deli counter. Not the best ambiance for our valentines dinner. The wine selection was good and the mussels were excellent. The food was slow but the service was pretty quick. Our food was still hot when we got it. They were also out of all their gluten free items, which was unfortunate as that was why we had chosen this restaurant.

    We had dined at Zucca Trattoria a couple of years ago and loved it, so we were eager to go back for Valentine weekend. We were really disappointed to find that we only had the option between a four course meal that didn't have super great selections, or a condensed menu. That makes sense for the restaurant in terms of being able to move people through and prepare food quickly, but it's rough on the customer. The food we ordered was pretty good, although my steak was overdone, but we had planned what we wanted to get in advance by looking at their online menu, and were disappointed that our selection wasn't offered on Valentines weekend. We will probably try to go back some time, but definitely not on Valentines again.

    Service was outstanding and the restaurant was quiet even though there were many people there so it was a pleasant place to be able to have a conversation. However the food was not up to expectations. The wine was not chilled, the salmon was not cooked through, and the pasta dish was rather meager. Although the first two problems were corrected the subsequent delays detracted from our dining experience.

    I enjoyed our visit to Zucca. The Caprese salad was delicious and very big. I could have easily shared it, but I didn't :) They were also really flexible and customized my risotto for me. Everything we had at our table was delicious, but the wild mushroom raviolini was the best. I would go back just to order that. Yum.

    I've never written a bad review until now. Our dining experience was beyond horrible. We were seated and left for at least a half an hour before a waiter came to our table and it was only after we asked if a waiter was ever coming that someone did! The food was awful. I ordered a pasta (alfredo) that arrived sticky and thick: I could only eat a couple of bites. Don't waste your hard earned money on this place.

    This was my 3rd time dining at this restaurant. I am a very picky eater and found several things on their menu that were right up my alley and at a decent cost. The wait staff is always professional and courteous. We had a group of 8 and didn't wait that long for our food. It was hot and delicious when it reached the table. The server was very prompt with drinks, the refills never lacked. The atmosphere was fun, there was pop music playing and you could tell that everyone was in a good mood. I will definitely be coming back in a group or as a romantic dinner for two.

    It is hit and miss with this restaurant. They need to be consistent with their quality. Sometimes the salad contains small lettuce pieces that are blackened and mushy. Our last experience meant sending the food back to the kitchen. I marked that I would recommend the restaurant to a friend but only to have them order the tomato basil bisque soup. That dish is consistently good.

    I had driven by Zucca Trattoria many time but never tried it. My first visit showed me that i had been missing out. I had the brunch special Italian Omlett; it was served warm, generously portioned and well seasoned. My date had the Margherita Piazza; served hot and properly cooked...good flavor (although i well say that i like the Margherita piazza from Settebello's better). The service was professional, if a tad slow for the small number of dinners i saw. I feel i got hours value for money and will return to try some other selections.

    We love Zucca! Whenever we want a special night out, it's our "go to" place. We ALWAYS go there on my husband's birthday. But it's also a great affordable place for lunch. You always get delicious, unusual choices at Zucca like squid ink pasta, as well as more pedestrian dishes like fetuccine alfredo (but always with that special ZUCCA touch, never ordinary) for those who might not be as adventurous. We LOVE Wednesday nights...live music, $8 pizzas and $8 pitchers! Wonderful and affordable date night!

    We used to love Zucca. A surprising gem in the Ogden food scene. That is until a string of disappointments have convinced us to never return. In April we popped in for an impromptu dinner and the food was delightful, but the server consistently got our order wrong and the service was slow. A fluke? In May we decided to try Zucca for Mother's Day Brunch. The food was disappointing and the service was incredibly poor. Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait a half hour after being seated before the waitstaff brought drinks. Even with a set menu we waited and waited for each course and the food wasn't cooked properly. In June we decided to try one last time for a graduation lunch and it was the worst experience yet. Never again.

    Will come back here again but this evening was not as good as I thought it could have been. It does have a notable wine list, however they did not have my first choice, and when he arrived with my second choice he informed us that this was his last bottle of it. I am constantly surprised how often I end up with the last bottle. Thank goodness the plate was warm, the NY Roast was cooked perfectly but it had been waiting for pickup a while by the time it got to me. Asparagus was excellent, as was the chocolate mousse for desert. Ordered coffee that finally got there after desert. I really hope next time they are on top of their game. A lot of potential here!

    Went to Zucca for New Years Eve. Glad we got reservations. Place was packed. Service was very attentive, although a bit slow. The food is traditional Italian with some pizzas thrown in for any picky eaters. My husband had the New York strip, excellent! I had the mushroom ravioli, also excellent. The wine list was impressive, especially for Ogden! This place is a nice neighborhood gem among an area of strip malls. Inside, you don't feel like you are in Ogden. Only critique is lack of healthy food. All the pastas are covered in cream sauce! While the sauces are very good, a few marginally healthy choices would be a good idea.

    The bar has been set so low in Ogden for restaurants that virtually any restaurant with a clue gets favorable reviews. With this being said, Zucca is probably the best restaurant in Ogden. Take that for what it is worth. But I would say it is the best Ogden has, but then again, consider the competition...

    Although our server was friendly he was not knowledgeable of the menu or cocktails. Service was slow, I ordered a cocktail only to be told several minutes later that our menu was outdated so I requested another and it took another several minutes. We needed options for gluten free items on the menu and he had to go and ask every time we had a question. Our menus were not taken our table was left cluttered for too long after our appetizers. We had a party of 4 of which 2 orders were not flavorful. The pork and Gorgonzola didn't even have the Gorgonzola on it. When we asked, our server didn't now if it even had it on it. Then we noticed other servers offered cheese or cracked pepper. We didn't. My risotto was good and that was it.
