Service was great, although a little aggressive trying to sell more wine.
Menu was a pretentious and hard to understand, but I figured they knew what they were doing and the meal would be great. Not so.
Pasta had little flavour and was hardly anything but noodle.
My two dining companions agreed this was not worth the money.

Overall a very good dining experience. Unfortunately I can only give 4 stars. I have a walnut allergy, and my friend and I ordered an appetizer that we shared. It came with a small salad that had walnuts in it, but this wasn’t declared on the menu. I ate some of the salad, and then my friend said that there were walnuts in it. We asked the waiter, and he confirmed this. I had a minor reaction - nothing severe. The waiter was very apologetic about this. What disappointed me was that there were several items on the menu where nuts were declared, but not with this item. Other than that, the rest of our meal was terrific and the service was outstanding.

We have been coming to Zucca for many years. It's consistently welcoming, delicious and seasonally just right. Best place for dinner in Midtown, by far. And one of the best in Toronto.

Our reservation was at 7:30pm - and the pasta special of the day was already sold out when we tried to order it

I found our waiter to have a snobby attitude towards us - which made the rest of the evening uncomfortable

Always a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Our favourite Italian food in Toronto...for the past several decades. A great ambience. Can be noisy at times, but that does not defer from the overall energy of the room. The farinata flat bread brought to every table upon arrival is such a nice touch, as is the fabulous bread basket. Don’t miss the grilled octopus appetizer. Even though Zucca has the best fish in town, their two steak offerings make it a tough choice every visit.

We ordered prefix menu, soup had burnt bread in it, ordered seafood pasta- black pasta was ok but seafood was not good. Desserts on the website were not on the actual menu. Overall ambience and service was good but food not upto the mark.
