The food was amazing, the outdoor seating area on Friday was very nice as the was alive music happening and the street was closed. Super recommend for date night with your husband or family.

I had the pasta special, which was good but not as impressive as would've been suggested by our waiter's description. And my dining partner was disappointed in the swordfish, which she felt tasted off, causing her to eat only about half of it.

We have been there several times in the past and I haven’t been this dissatisfied with the food as we were last night.
The wait staff were great and understanding of our dissatisfaction. My wife ordered the Lasagna with anticipation only to be disappointed by the way it was slopped in a casserole dish with to much cheese and very little sauce.
I had ordered The Veal Chop Saltimbocca which was presented to me well over cooked because they deep fried it.
It had the appearance and texture of shoe leather.
I would have somewhat understood if the restaurant was busy but that was not the case at 7:00 pm last night.

All said they did not charge for this poor representation of a expensive dinner
Again we were pleased with the waiter and staff
Though the chefs should never allowed this food to leave the kitchen.

Went with our out of town guests. So anxious to show off Federal Hill Restaurant. The service was terrible from drinks to three requests for bread. Then when our dinner was came we asked for cheeses again a long wait. Our guest asked for wine with their dinner almost finished before it came. My chicken was so overcooked. One other thing make sure you actually get a nine ounce pour as opposed to 6 ounce, we requested nine got six. For 21.00 a glass so overpriced. Will never go here again.

This is many times I’ve had the same pasta dish and each time the past few times it had gotten worse each time.
Just a buy disappointed in the food the past few times verses when we first started coming to the restaurant.

Zooma has always been good, but I was disappointed in that when I made the reservation, it was clearly indicated it was for a birthday. I even called midweek to confirm it. No birthday dessert or anything was done for my daughter. Although the table to the left of us was a birthday and they were given the lava cake. I get everyone is understaffed and our server was very sweet, but if I plan on spending over 220 on a meal for 3 for a birthday, it’d be nice if the restaurant I selected had actually done something. Other than that, it was fine.

Food was not as good as expected. 3 out of the 6 of us who dined there really enjoyed their meal. The remainder of us were disappointed.

Can't say enough about the quick and efficient service, especially on a busy Friday night during Restaurant Week! We were seated before our reservation time, received our drinks and appetizers quickly and our entrees in a timely manner. The wine list is packed with quality over quantity and the tiramisu was about the best I've had outside of Italy!

Maybe we came on an "off" night but the highly recommend Zooma did NOT live up to expectations. The food was quite average- the wait was long between courses- the overall feeling at the end of the night was we paid too much for a less than average meal. Would not recommend this restaurant as there are so many great choices in Federal Hill.

Had chicken Milanese. The chicken cutlet was hard and dry. Had a hard time cutting the chicken. The waiter even agreed it was so. I only had several bites of the chicken. Instead of taking the meal off the bill they only took off half off the price!!! That's horrible costumer service!!! The table next to use also complained about their chicken as well being tough to eat.

The manager was very helpful in setting up our reservation and giving us options of where to sit (inside or out). They were flexible when we moved the reservation time. We chose outside due to COVID and also the A/C is WAY to cold inside. Unfortunately, the street was extremely noisy this night. The food has also gone a bit down hill since our last visit. Our Caprese salad had very little basil and no balsamic drizzle or olive oil what so ever. The pasta was a bit chewy and the margarita pizza had almost no basil on it. Our expectations were high as we have really LOVED our meals there before, so read this review with that in mind.

Trattoria Zooma never disappoints. My husband and I love the variety of menu items to choose from. To sit at a table by the window is fun to look out at the activities of Atwells Avenue.
The housemade pasta is always delicious and one can taste the freshness. The lovely young man that waited on us was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.
