The gnocchi was bland. Asked for salt 3 times before it was brought. They advertised online that they had Gables Restaurant Week but they didn’t. Probably won’t return.

Excellent restaurant to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. Excellent selection for Coral Gables Restaurant Week. We ordered from the regular menu too. We will return soon. Service was excellent. They took great care of us.

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.

We asked what kind of olive was in the dirty martini, the answer was "just olive".

I am Italian and I enjoyed the quality of the dishes (truly Italian). Excellent appetizers (zucca con ricotta, fried calamari with shrimps and beef carpaccio ) The second dish was a unique spaghetti alla bottarga (difficult to find) and a great seabass. Dessert: a fantastic creme brûlée and a souffle of chocolate superb.

I really recommend this restaurant. Un grande BRAVO al cuoco!!!!

We were seated at a table with a small, yipping dog nearby. Based on my understanding of Florida law, I assume the animal was a Service Dog to be allowed in the restaurant. We considered asking for another table but the dog settled down and remained quiet. The food was outstanding in every respect but the service, while knowledgeable and friendly, was somewhat sporadic...an 18% gratuity is automatically added. I did not plus it up as I normally would.

Back again to the food....innovative and absolutely delicious. While I am a huge pasta fan, the risotto at Zucca is simply something that must be tried. Deciding what to order is a challenge as the menu offers a number of enticing choices. The wine selection, by the glass or by the bottle, complements the menu selections very nicely.

Bottom line in reviewing any restaurant...will we return? Absolutely, without question...we bypassed too many menu selections not to return to Zucca as soon as possible.

Loved the fresh modern decor. Loved the Staff Uniforms. Everyone was very friendly and professional and service was top-notch. All the food was absolutely delicious. The main courses that were included with the buffet and brought to the table were all perfectly portioned and pasta was all perfectly cooked. My favorite was the lobster stuffed ravioli. I think the selection of salads and desserts were perfect. You can tell that a lot of attention is given to quality and detail. My only complaint is that they could have had a few more breakfast offerings as I felt that besides the lox, most was actual lunch than "brunch" but other than that it was fantastic. My husband and I were celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary and were happy that the Hotel where we spent our Honeymoon (St. Michel) had opened a restaurant with a Sunday Brunch. It exceeded my expectations and we hope to come enjoy the Brunch often. I really think that this local gem is underappreciated as the place was not nearly as full as it should have been!

I would have given Service and Ambiance five stars if it had not been for the hostess. My wife and I walked in at 6pm on a Sunday and the restaurant was empty. Despite the abundance of available tables, the hostess was not even remotely flexible about seating. She knew where she wanted us to sit and, by God, we were to follow her instructions. I asked for a table other than the one that the hostess wanted us to occupy; I was denied. Eventually we had to summon the manager to settle our impasse and he was happy to accommodate us because he could see that the restaurant was empty, he's focused on the "service" end of the business, and could see that there was no reason to deny us. Zucca needs to better train the hostess in the art of hosting....or ix-nay her. Otherwise, a great experience.

Finally a restaurant worthy of a corner location famous for the Hotel St. Michel in which it resides. Zucca is authentic Italian, perfectly cooked al dente pasta and the right amount of sauces, excellent. Filet Mignon was properly prepared and Spaghetti a la Vongole was heaven. Breads arrive with 3 sauces and they are all equally good. Zucca is expensive, wine list varies with choices from different Italian regions and pricey. Service was great although did lag at the end as I had to ask for water and pour my last 2 glasses of wine. 18% gratuity is added automatically, when bottles of wine are pricey, service needs to carry excellence until the end. The Host-Owner incredibly charming and a nice elegant touch when he brought me pieces of Parmesan drizzled with Honey with which to finish my wine.
Beautiful presentation on desserts, my Partner had the Creme Brûlée and she raved about it. Most definitely will return, Enjoy!
