Table was ready when we arrived, but it was set for three, so they asked if we needed the third spot, although I had reserved for two only. Waiter explained the specials and was polite and pleasant. We ordered from the Miami Spice menu. The food was very good and the sauces were just right; not too strong but not too weak in flavor. Pasta was freshly made. Overall a good experience. The place is kind of small and we were seated on the way to the restrooms, so people would walk by and almost bump into our table. One negative is that they add an 18% tip to the bill automatically, something that I prefer to do myself depending on the service provided. That usually makes you feel as if you are in a tourist trap, so I would recommend to the owner to allow guests to add the tip of their choice.

Everything was great. Even though our server was very good, he and the bus boys tended to hover over the table very closely to the point that it was uncomfortable. We were there early on a Tuesday and it wasn’t crowed, so I don’t think turnover was an issue.

The food was sub par at best. Not good at all. Risotto was like sparkle. Pasta way past al dente and cold. Another bad attempt at Italian food in Miami. Way over priced

We were very disappointed in the food. It was beautifully presented but the grain salad was bland, the fish over salty and the coffee cold. Our waiter tried to make things better but by mid meal we were ready to leave. It's a shame because we had always loved the setting under a different name and were hoping this would be great too.

I've eaten dinner here before and foods and service was excellent.
My Hudson's and i decoded to try lunch on Miami Spice. Four apoys we both had the swordfish which was prepared like a cevice but with thinly sliced fish. It was very fresh and trasted good.
For entree i had the grilled snapper over potato puree affix was very good. My husband's lamb chops were sad. They were thickly sliced asks breaded. Overt cooked and dry. Like jerky, awful.
The desserts ere very good, homemade gelato and a small berry tart.
JP was our server and he was great and attentive. Drinks were good as well. Will stock to regular nearby it all for recommend items of spice menu next time.

This is our 4th visit to dine at Zucca. Always an amazing experience. Fresh food, served with beautiful presentation and the most delicious, fresh ingredients. Prepared exactly as requested. Restaurant prepared to deal with allergy issues and works kindly to accommodate needs. Excellent service. Will return again with friends!

The octopus was delicious. The round breaded rice ground beef appetizer very good.The pasta with pulled duck succulent and tasty. A glass of 2013 Brunello to accompany a very good meal. We both shared one serving of every dish.. A bit too expensive for 2 having shared the main course...
The apple strudel with vanilla ice cream, a wonderful and perfect dessert.A great ambiance and very beautiful decoration.
Grethel is a wonderful and attentive waitress.

My husband & I enjoyed a nice dinner at this place. The restaurant is pretty, ambiance is cozy. The service was great. Alejandro & Gregory took great care of us. The food was just ok. We had the stuffed pumpkin flowers (one of my all time favorite appetizers to enjoy), burrata, polenta & vitelo tonato. The pumpkin flowers were stuffed with ricotta & lemon zest, but the zest was overpowering & tasted bitter. The burrata did not seem fresh; it tingled on the sides of your tongue as if it was starting to ferment. The branzino & creme brûlée were divine. Overall, a nice evening, but pricey for the quality of food we enjoyed. Don’t think we’ll be back very soon.

This was my second time eating at Zucca, and the food did not disappoint. Simone is, to me, the best Italian chef in Miami. My only complain was the delay in getting us to our table. We had a 1:30 PM reservation and did not sit down until past 2 PM. That said, the waiting staff was attentive and very friendly. As a tip, don't miss the Ossobuco Milanese. It is worth the price!

Our Sunday Brunch at Zucca was delicious. I lovely restaurant with exceptionally fresh food choices. With bottomless Mimosas and Bellinis, worth the $. A glass or bottle of wine was extra but that's OK with me. We left very full as we wanted to try everything.

It's gone down tremendously from their first brunch dates. Variety of food, overall value, service very sketchy. It might not be there much longer. At least not brunch. Even customers are 'downgraded; from before.

WOW! An amazing experience at Zucca! One of the top meals I’ve ever had! From the hostess, to the bartenders, to the servers - we were always given fabulous service. And then the food. The bread and zucchini flowers (we had the ricotta and lemon zest option). Such a great start! We shared the branzino for two that is prepared with a salt crust. Best I’ve ever had and I order this often wherever I go. The flavor was fantastic (no sauce needed)and it was so fresh and moist - done to perfection!! Not to mention the vegetables that come with the dish. Order the tiramisu to end your magical meal! It is well worth the price. Zucca is always packed so reserve well in advance.
