The food was absolutely Amazing! And with it being right next to the river walk was Devine!
It was very nice to have a table on the Riverwalk. The food was just ok….I was expecting a great meal but the food was disappointing.
The atomsphere, food, service, was outstanding! I will be coming back.
My friend and I walked into the restaurant to have dinner on a Saturday night. It did not look busy at all because there were a lot of open tables. When we were waiting at the host stand, there was a couple in front of us who had been waiting to be greeted for a long time. The four of us kept getting ignored by every staff member that walked by. So my friend asked a server, “excuse me, do we seat ourselves?” And she said “no.” And walked off…. Okay? Then the manager came up, told the couple in front that it would be an hour wait since they didn’t have a reservation. So I got out my phone and made a reservation for 9:15 (it was 9 o’clock at this time). The manager said, “yes I see your reservation right here but we won’t be able to seat you until 9:15 due to being short staffed.” I understood - I’ve worked in the restaurant business for 11 years, so I got it. My friend and I had a water at the bar until 9:15. Then when 9:15 rolled around, we went back up to the host stand to be sat. There was (again) no one at the host stand, and (again) a line at the host stand. At one point a sever came up to look at the floor chart, I started to walk up to him to ask “is someone going to help us?” He looked me in the eyes, then turned around and walked off. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Like I said, I’ve worked in the restaurant business for 11 years, and if I saw a line at the host stand, a quick “someone will be right with y’all” goes a long way. We eventually got sat closer to 9:30, and our server was SO RUDE. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt and think “they are short staffed, she’s probably just stressed.” But at this point, I was over the meal, I didn’t want to be in there any longer, I only had one bite of my food because I was over this entire dining experience and wanted to go home. I wanted to give the server a $0 tip, but the only reason why I didn’t was because I’m a huge believer in karma. So she got a 20% tip that she didn’t deserve. I will not be back to the restaurant
For the location and price - not what we expected. Service was underwhelming, felt like server was bothered by us and made weird facial expressions to our questions. The food was plain - no bread or soup/salad options before the meal or with the meal. Restaurant was practically empty when we dined and it was just a very lackluster experience.
My son was passing through (he’s a lighting engineer for Leon Bridges who was performing at the Aztec.). We needed to find a close by place where we could dine outdoors. It was perfect! Good food and service and our waiter even took a photo for me. Because of Covid - it had been 18 months since I had seen my son. This dinner was everything to me!
The food was good, the drinks were lovely. When I asked about the basil drink, she couldn’t tell me about it, “I think it has Deep Eddy’s Grapefruit.” She brought 3 boxes instead of 4, and then didn’t bring a bag to carry them in. My 19 year old step daughter thought it was possible she was stoned. Overall, nice experience. The waitress could have put forth a little more effort.
Food was yummy, but bruschetta portion was small (compared to price).
Great drinks and food, Frankie did a superb job of making sure all our needs were met.
Restaurant is way overrated. Had the pasta bolognese and one glass of wine and the bill was $47. A ton of pasta but really not good. I am very picky about my Italian and this was not good if it was supposed to be elevated and not good if it was supposed to be home style. More or less a hotel cafeteria with better ambiance. The staff was great so no hate to them… the food just sucked and was way over priced. Better spots in town.
They were understaffed so had less attention than at other places we ate at during our trip to SA.
Great location at the Westin. Outside seating on the river walk
Great homemade pasta dishes at great price.
Great drinks - Orlando behind the bar is great!
Overall pleasant experience
Kind of out of the way riverwalk restaurant. probably because of covid there was only one server. Hector was busy but tried hard to get to everyone. Had the 4 cheese pizza and was tasty
We only stayed for wine and appetizers after arriving. We expected a higher quality of food and atmosphere based on other reviews.
We had reservations and it took awhile for any of the staff to recognize our arrival. The pasta was very under cooked - and pastie tasting. The pizza dough was also under cooked and barely even brown in color. I am from Houston and your ratings on Open Table falsely stated your are food were good. Wrong!
We ate at Zocca for our Christmas Day dinner. They had a special menu offering, which was a surprise, and our meals did not disappoint!
For starters, they brought us warm Italian bread with infused garlic pieces and butter - SUCH a treat!
Two of our party ordered the dressing stuffed, prosciutto wrapped, grilled chicken, accompanied by spaghetti squash and marinara. DELICIOUS!
The other two of our party got the garlic, Parmesan rubbed Filet Mignon with roasted potatoes and asparagus. Just gotta say, it was the BEST steak that ever went into my mouth!
Service was also excellent! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The entire experience was great. The food was good, and it didn’t feel like we waited too long due to the appetizers (which were also incredible). I celebrated an anniversary and I would definitely celebrate other occasion there too!
Absolutely one of the worst meals we ever had. First, and I should have left right then, the bread was awful. You know you aren't going to get a good meal in an Italian restaurant if the bread is bad. I took the pieces of bread out of the basket and photographed them. Later, when I told people about our experience I ended with the photo of the bread because it said it all. The response was always a question. "What is that?" each observer asked. Yes, it was that bad. The hotel, Westin, had a beautiful lobby but the restaurant was shameful.
It felt like I was in a Denny’s for a date night and the food wasn’t great.

Great service and great food! Really enjoyed it!!!
Food was good. My only disappointment was that the meals shown on their website were not on the menu. They show scallops, not on menu. It was pasta, pizza, and burgers/sandwiches.
The outside seating at the restaurant was excellent, service outstanding and food excellent. I highly recommend
We loved everything we ordered off their menu and their raspberry lemon drop was delish!!!!!! Definitely will be back.
Came here for my girlfriends birthday and really enjoyed it! The server was very friendly and talkative and made us feel very welcome here. The food was also great, especially the desert. Would definitely come back.
We ate out on the terrace in front of the river and it was very pleasant. I did expect the food to be a little bit more upscale with a little bit more variety. We ordered a couple of pasta dishes that were good but nothing to write home about. The fried ravioli appetizer was really delicious.
Nice atmosphere on the patio. The pizza was great!
Food was very good but a very limited menu due to Covid. Great view of the river walk from the outdoor patio.
Very enjoyable dining. I look forward to visiting again when Zocca offers their full menu.
They did an excellent job of making our anniversary special!
Pretty limited menu, but very good. Right on the quiet end of the Riverwalk. We were looking for a bite to eat with outdoor dining before going to the light show at the San Fernando Cathedral . tTis was a perfect location to walk there from. Parking rates at the lot acroos the street from the Westin (where Zocca is located) were ridiculous, however.
KarenB, Thank you so much for your time to share your experience. I have some GREAT news; as we reopen, our Chef is adding back items each week. We are so excited to be open and we hope you come back and see us as we continue to add back to our menu. Thank you so much for dining with us! We appreciate your business.
We made reservations not knowing this was the second day they were reopened (they shut down during COVID). Food was delicious, drinks were great, service was great- thanks to Orlando and the team! They were fun and really attentive. We ate outside and it was right on the Riverwalk. We will go back. Parking garage is right across the street plus this is located in the Westin which had valet parking as well. Mosquitos got one of our party- bring spray. We had a great time and really enjoyed our dining experience.

Thank you for sharing so we can be sure this doesn't happen again. We love to recognize special occasions. Thank you for dining with us and thank you for your time to share your feedback.
The food was DELISH. The service was outstanding. We were a party of 8, so 4 kids (8 to 12yrs old) and 4 adults. I wasn't sure how loud our party was going to be but it was all manageable. Did I say the food was Delicious?!
A beautiful experience while on vacation -- before the heat of the storm hit with COVID-19 in Minnesota. Thank you for letting us forget our worries and enjoy a wonderful dinner with your gorgeous outdoor seating, considerate wait staff, and incredible food. Best wishes with all that you are contending with around this uncharted global experience. -The Blochs from MN
Setting was very nice along the Riverwalk. The soup and salad were very good but the pizza was poor. Crust flavorless, sauce watery and too sweet. Waiter was inattentive, asked for refills but never received.
We were a party of seven. Zocca was a genial place to have a reunion of old friends. The food was quite good, though the portions were too hearty to finish after ordering an appetizer and dessert was out of the question.
This was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had! They are so polite, and the food was exceptional! It’s tucked away in a nice corner and hard to spot, but so worth it!
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. We are thrilled you had a wonderful experience with excellent food and service. We will be sure to share with out entire team.
Great location and service, the food was good but not enough to justify the cost.
The staff at Zocca did a great job accommodating us and explaining specials! Service was spot on!
