Great food. Authentic home made! Tastes just like my nonna's home made sauce. All staff are very friendly. Our waiter was very attentive thru the whole meal. Always refreshing, topping up water. Food is delicious! One of our most favorite restaurants to eat. Will always return to Trattoria Zooma. We love it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and the ambiance of the dining room. Fresh homemade pasta was delicious, and worth the up charge. The value of the pre fixed lunch, was worth it’s value and the lunch size portions were more than I had expected. Look forward to going again.

p.s. use the valet service and avoid hunting for the parking meter that is difficult to find!

To be fair, we visited on Mother’s Day. We only waited 10 minutes past our reservation time. It was very crowded which I believe pumped up the noise that day. All four meals ordered were exceptional! I cannot wait to return and work our way through their menu.

Had a reservation at 7:45 and it took 15 minutes to be seated. When we were finally seated, we were sat between a 12 top, 16 top and a 10 top. It was ridiculously loud. We ordered a nice bottle of wine but after waiting for 15 minutes with still no wine and getting bumped into and stepped on multiple times by people and servers around us, we decided to leave. I can't vouch for anything in this restaurant except that it's loud. We will not return.

We went to Zooma for Easter and so glad we did! It was awesome. My husband had the bone in rib eye which he said was one of the best he's ever had and it came w/truffle fries which were awesome as well. I had the home made "Bow Ties" w/ground sausage, garlic, tomatoes, onions and a red sauce which was delicious, I'm so glad I ordered that dish!! Service was great, we had a wonderful time!!

My three friends all went for the $5.00 pasta upgrade, which got them handmade and cut pasta. All off them thought, that Zooma's handmade pasta was very good. 2 of them had the Chicken Marsala, while I had the bone-in meal chop with onions and fingerling potatoes, which was outstanding.

This is just an OK place. I found the portions to be ridiculously large but they were smothered with so much cheese and onions and garlic that the texture of the chicken breast was completely gone… Let alone the taste. The ambience was faux Italian. You can’t put Italian words in the menu and claim you have Italian food. I guess I’m a little snobbish because I’ve lived in an Italian section of a city for so many years and even though this is in the alleged Italian area of the city, this restaurant just does not have the Italian integrity. The server was acceptable. The sangria was watered down. I would much rather go to a chain like Flemings to get high quality Food, I’ll be at with high prices. I forgot how much the total bill was, however, I don’t know why people would rate this place high unless their standards are rather low.

Have been wanting to try this place for a while... I had high hopes. Unfortunately - it was just average at best. The food just wasn’t that great. I had the bolognese ($25) and it tasted like a chef boyardee dish.... not a place I would go back to, specially with all the really great Italian food options in that area. The service was great, but not enough to make up for the underwhelming meal that was definitely priced way too high for the quality.

The service and food were very good, however, the noise level was extremely high. There was a table of college students next to us and they were VERY loud. We could barely hear one another. It's unfortunate that something cannot be done about the acoutics. Once they left we enjoyed our evening!

First experience with this establishment. If first impressions mean anything, this was not a good one. The woman who greeted us st the door was disengaging, unwelcoming, and treated the young lady who was attempting to help us badly. We gave our name to her 2-3 times as she was clearly not listening, and led us to a table wedged between the bar, a support beam and 2 other tables, so tight my wife was continually bumped by the patron to her left. Otherwise the service and food were excellent. The suggestions were on spot and delivered with care.

Excellent service and food . Fabulous menu. Can be loud if they seat you near the bar, or near the windows overlooking Atwells Ave. After waiting street side for 5 minutes or so my husband had to go inside to the hostess desk to get the valet driver to take our car . But he was very nice . I'd recommend this restaurant and is a favorite .

Very disappointed. Zooms was our go to when in providence for the evening but my chicken saltimbocca ended up as just a fried chicken breast in a sauce that was overpowered by the amount of roasted garlic. My wife’s chicken piccata was a skin on chicken breast that would been fine if the skin had been browned enough stay crispy in the very bland sauce.

Worst is that they took, by my take, the best risotto off the menu. Explains how we could walk in and be seated at 630 on a Saturday evening.

My friend treated me to lunch for my birthday. We were both very happy with our food and service. The wait person was attentive but not overwhelming and we didn't feel rushed. We split our appetizers so that we could both try two of them. The second course was delicious. We ate our fill and still had some to take home. The desserts that came with the luncheon special without an extra charge were limited but I liked the canolli.
