Never disappoints. My last visit I had a bit of difficulty finding my entrè but when I did it was delicious. I don’t eat pork cheeks and organs. :)

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.

We are always on the lookout for good fish in Toronto restaurants .Not like N Y or Montreal hard to find here,
Fortunately we have Zucca.
Outstanding Mediterranean fish -done simply & deboned if you wish. Local vegatables , great "silver dollar" potatoes. Not cheap but worth it.We have never been disappointed.
Other local choices available - -done simply to get proper taste from them .I don't know about the pastas which look & sound great as they contain garlic & we are allergic.
The ambience is ordinary but service is professional.

Comfortable and cozy, we arrived Saturday night for dinner. Seated promptly, but it did take some time to get drinks and the specials. We chose the mixed olives, the daily special salad, the rabbit and sausage "maltagliata", and the fish special. Everything was very good. The fish special was a meaty fish that they had just brought in from Hawaii (kawakawa? sp?), which I thought was tasty, and different from the tilapias and sole that I often see. In a nice touch, the owner stopped by after dinner to inquire about the fish, as it was the first time they had served it.

We were full, and didn't stay for dessert. Dinner for two, with no alcohol, was $130, tax and tip included.

Food and service were wonderful as always. I always look forward to the little farinata amuse bouche and the focaccia/bread/stick basket. As a vegetarian, I appreciate that there are always a few dishes I can eat. I especially love the Ciriole al Pomodoro Piccante.

The food at Zucca never fails to impress. It was the first time there for my friends, and they loved everything: service, drinks, food, atmosphere. The only aspect that made our evening just short of excellent was that at some point we couldn't hear each other, but it was just that a few of the patrons had strong, loud voices and we do not. Looking forward to go next week again for their truffle menu

The service was incredible! The pasta and seafood melted in your mouth, Awakening every taste bud.

The bread is served hot and fresh out of the oven!!
(I tend to judge a restaurant based on their bread..... if the bread is to die for...... 99.9 percent the meal will be over the top as well)
We paired our dinner with a reasonably priced wine and shared a dessert that reminded me of being in Italy. (Afogato—gelato with espresso on top)
We were having so much fun that we missed half of our soccer game!
I will definitely recommend Zucca to friends and family.
