Diner Reviews
  • "This is my go to Italian on the UES. Great service. Consistent. Just love the food."

  • "The restaurant was crowded and very noisy when we arrived and the hostess seemed overwhelmed. After waiting about 10 minutes despite having a reservation, I almost left but we were able to get seating outside. It then took another 20 minutes or so to place our orders, but the food came promptly but without silverware. After two requests and another several minutes, I did get silverware and was able to enjoy the food which was quite good, except for the salad which was overly simple for the price and lacking dressing. I did have to ask twice for dressing which took about 10 minutes to come. The pastas and specials were delicious, but you may want to spare yourself the bad service and order in."

  • "Our dinner was a very pleasant experience. Kids had the home made pasta w/ meat sauce, delicious. I had the veal chop w/ mushrooms and my husband had the sirloin. They were both cooked to our taste and all dishes were very hot when served. The staff was attentive and service was very quick. Our dinner was at 6:30 and restaurant was quiet. resturant started filling up as we finished w/ our dinner. Would definitely recommend!!!"

  • "The food is very good, the portions very generous and the prices very reasonable. The night we were there, however, it was terribly noisy, as there was a large party of about 15 who had never heard of using inside voices. Hard to have conversation. The restaurant was full and service was somewhat slow and inattentive. I would go back, however, based on quality of the food in the hopes that we just hit it on a bad night re noise and service."

  • "Steady, dependable, generous portions, good bread and dip, nice service, not too expensive, worth going to regularly and always another special. ONLY criticism, the tomato sauce is too salty in the spaghetti, veal and chicken parmigana and eggplant. Otherwise delightful and we're regulars"

  • "Z e P was great as usual. Their focaccia bread alone is worth a visit. Highly recommended."

  • "We had a lovely time there. The food was fantastic and the servers were very nice. They even had a small outdoor section but we were too hungry to wait. The portions aren't huge but that's how it should be. The prices were very reasonable especially for the feel of fine dining. I feel like I found our "go to" Italian place and I can't wait to keep coming back. The Cheese Tortellin were so good (I love cheese). My boy friend for the spaghetti and meatballs. He loved it too!"

  • "As usual, food and service were excellent. Due to health issues, certain dishes had to be made without cream, butter or cheese. There was no problem having olive oil substituted in the baked clams (yummy) and the homemade spinach linguine with assorted seafood! Great prices, too. They also make one of the best martinis in town!"

  • "The food at Zucchero is always wonderful. I've eaten here many dozens of times and have never had a bad meal. Further, the waitstaff could not be more accommodating. I can't recommend Zucchero and Pomodoro strongly enough."

  • "I've been going to Zucchero e Pomodori for years and it has never failed to meet or exceed expectations. An intimate setting great for "date nights", family dinners, or even business. I've never taken anyone there who has not loved the place. The staff is attentive without being intrusive, the food is always delicious, and the wine list has even impressed my brother who is a wine aficionado. A "not-so-well-kept" secret and neighborhood gem, I cannot recommend Zucchero enough."

  • "Service was outstanding - very friendly and efficient. Cannot beat the pre-fixe lunch of 8.95 for two courses (there are add-ons from $1-3). I think next time I might stick with one of their pastas however. Pollo alla griglia was very dry but my husband's fritto misto was very good. Homemade and delicious tirmamisu ($7). Several solo diners in there - it seemed like a cozy spot if you're in the neighborhood (which we were specifically for an appointment.)"
    Dined on 6/24/2013
  • "This place has such tasty pastas. The bread and dipping sauce provided is so good there is no need for an app! Rigatoni pollo Pazzo is fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/14/2013
  • "This was our first time here and were truly impressed with the food, the service and the prices. I had wonderful bronzino with clams and mussels in a light tomato sauce that was wonderful and so large that I had to take a portion home ($21).My husband had tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce. Very delicious. We will defnitely return."

  • "The food stays at a high-quality level at reasonable prices. There's also a wide-ranging selection of appetizers, entrees and side dishes. For the mostpart, service is good, with attentive waiters who refill water glasses. The ZeP wine list is good, and fairly priced as well."
