Zucca Trattoria - Ogden Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Zucca before and really liked their Italian fare. We were anxious to try their Thursday night prime rib special. We ate in the speakeasy, which was small and intimate. Very nice! Brooklyn was our server and was fabulous. She was personable and provided great service for us.
Now the downside, the food. The prime rib was cooked to medium as ordered. However it was fatty and tough. The entire meal was cold, including the prime rib, potatoes and green beans. I am not one to complain so we didn't say much.
We will be back but definitely not for the prime rib.
Our first visit to Zucca's. We drove about 30 minutes to be there. A friend had recommended and it did not disappoint. We had the bacon wrapped scallops over fettuccine. Delicious! Great selection on the menu. Very friendly, funny staff. Quick service. The noise level was a little high the night we were there because they had live music, but who can complain about live music! If we needed quiet conversation, I'm sure they would have moved us. We will definitely be eating there again!
The service was good and always friendly. We asked to move to another table once being seated and that wasn't an issue whatsoever.... but the chef really had a heavy hand with the salt this evening. It was a bit overbearing. We should have complained, but. we didn't ...so it's our fault. We've been here before with much better results.
This was my first time here and I came for the Chioppino special. Brooke was great, she was super with the two little ones, knew the menu well & went out of her way to accommodate special requests. The Chioppino was outstanding, we received the wrong appetizer but it was corrected & unfortunately came a few minutes before out entrees so was harder to enjoy but still very good. I ordered a pint of beer that never came due to a problem with the keg so that was also a little disappointing. Overall great meal and the little ones loved their food (kids pizza was pretty gigantic could maybe scale that one down lol) only thing I'd change is having crusty bread in the basket that everyone can eat, I can't eat cheese and the bread was covered with cheese.
My husband and I went out for our fifth wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint! The pasta was fresh and had amazing flavor components to the entree. Our server seemed comfortable with the menu enough to make suggestions. Overall it was a little pricy but it was worth the good food!
This might be my favorite restaurant in Utah. The atmosphere is one of a kind. The food is always amazing. The service seems to really care about the dining experience. I highly recommend this place. I took my extended family back the next day, because it was so good and I wanted to introduce them to such a great restaurant.
It's almost unfortunate that when we first walked into Zucca on Friday night that they didn't go ahead and seat us; we were told a 40 minute wait for a table for 2 just before 7 pm. We walked outside, I used Open Table to make a reservation for 7 pm, and we walked back in to use that reservation. Had they just seated us, I probably wouldn't bother with this review. But, Open Table asked for a review and I'm obliging.
Pros: Good sparkly cocktails. All aspects of the salad and the soup were fresh and delicious.
Cons: The arancini special for the night was poorly described by the waiter, and one of the chips of beef in one of them was still VERY cold (though not quite frozen). Our waiter was pleasant but couldn't manage any questions related to alcohol. Bison tenderloin was cooked to the right temperature but was the toughest bison tenderloin I've experienced. But the dealbreaker was the Canneloni, which obviously sat under the heatlamp for too long since the bechamel sauce on top of it was almost burned.
In summary, disappointing. I doubt I'll be back.
My wife and I arrived at 8:30 on a Thursday night. There was less than 20 customers. We were immediately seated but no one came to our table for about 10 minutes. Finally the hostess stopped by and asked if the waiter had been by. When we said no, she went over to speak to a waiter at a computer station. He looked over and continued what he was doing. (Turned out he was preparing individual bills for a table of 6.) Finally, a young lady came by with bread and oil, said nothing and left. Finally, a different waiter that we hadn't seen on the floor, came out of the kitchen, did a double take and came over to ask us is we've been served. Again we said no and he said "well lets take care of that." We ordered drinks and dinner. My wife ordered a pasta that claimed to be "home made" and "made from scratch daily." While it may have been home made, it certainly had not been made on that day. I ordered a chicken dish with "creamy" polenta. While the chicken was ok, the polenta had chunks the size of half my thumb and the rest was under cooked. We did not see the waiter again until we were through eating. When he finally stopped by and asked how our meal was, I just showed him the polenta chunks to which he said "Well, that's not right." We asked for our bill, assuming some concession would be made for an improperly constructed meal but all we got was the bill and his assurance that he would bring up the poor presentation with the chef. All in all, the dining experience had the feeling of pure amateurism.
We have been going to Zucca for many years. The service has declined in quality year after year. Tonight was the breaking point and we will no longer return. We had a reservation and were seated. The water came quickly and then we proceeded to wait for over 20 minutes and still no waiter stopped to take our order. We asked a couple employees passing by if they could prompt our waiter, but still nothing. We left and went down the street to Hearth and had excellent meals and service. Zucca does have good food, but the service is unacceptable.
This was a great dinner experience. Everything was was cooked perfect. I lived in Italy for seven years and you can tell the chef has a great feel for real Italian food. I'm looking forward to going back and trying different dishes. Staff is great, ambience was good, not too many tables so you didn't feel crowded. Was a wonderful evening I would recommend to anybody.
My first time visiting Zucca and it was not great. It took forever to get service. Even once the waitress indicated she would "be right with us," she still took 10min to come take drink orders. Then the restaurant was out of the Buffalo tenderloin and lamb chops. As a result, the both of us got ribeye instead. My ribeye came out looking like an oversized NY strip. I sent it back. The waitress used a small plate to just take the steak back, leaving the sides on the plate in front of me. I thought it was restaurant etiquette to take the entire plate back which clearly didn't happen here. Zucca had great reviews, but I doubt I'll ever return.
We have visited many times at their old location... the menu seemed to be better there, not sure if that is because they were only serving the dinner menu. We were seated near the kitchen so the noise level was a little high as would be expected. The food took quite a while to get to our party and was like warm at best. Later that night my wife became sick and she suspected it was the lobster and shrimp risotto. Like I have said we have had very enjoyable experiences at zuccas in the past. This time they just missed the mark. Will try again another time.
We've been eating at Zucca's since they opened in South Ogden years ago. Their focus has always been on providing great quality food. Even the servers had this focus. Well, something has significantly changed. Our dinner the other night was awful. Soup was cold, lasagna was warm at best, and even my teenage son said his pizza didn't taste like it use to. The hostess was running around, yelling orders and talking on the phone while standing next to tables with patrons. Zucca's has gone from a restaurant that was focused on the food and the meal, to just another restaurant focused on turning tables. It was so bad, my wife doesn't want to give them a second chance.
We made Valentine's Day reservations two weeks ago. When we showed up at Zucca's, we found out that they only had a Valentine's Day menu with very limited menu choices which me and my wife did not like. We ended up leaving. We did find that our favorite microbrew down the street could accommodate us and had a full menu as well as a Valentine's Day menu, which provided excellent food choices. Valentine's Day saved!
First time at Zucca's. My wife's food was excellent, squash ravioli, mine was good, portion of my lamb chops were small for the price and the fingerling potatoes were too salty. Service is very good with small quite atmosphere. We'll go back and try a different dish next time
Overall a great experience aside from the service! The food was excellent. The downside was very SLOOOOOOOOOW service. People come to eat a meal at a restaurant because they are hungry. Waiting 30 minutes to eat is challenging. We were also very disappointed to find out the restaurant told Open Table that we never showed. Interesting given the amount of time we spent waiting for our food. Surely they noticed we were there! We will be happy to go back and give it a second chance because we want to support local restaurants.
The food is very good so it is a shame the service is so poor. We had a 6:30 reservation for 5 of us and were seated by 6:35. It took over :20 min to get our water and one of our drinks took 3 reminders and over :30 min to get. Our dinner order was finally taken at 7:00 pm and after multiple requests including getting up from our table to find someone to help us, we received our food at 8:20 pm - nearly two hours after we arrived. They didn't offer to comp us anything. Even though the food was very good, we would never return here or recommend it to friends.
