Diner Reviews
  • "bermondsey street is filled with great food, with zucca being one of the best italian restaurants here and in London. Must visit"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "The frito misto which was once a revelation and a joy was now stodgy. And we had two over-salted mains, and not much interest in the fact from our over-worked waitress. Although she did knock something off our bill when pressed."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the food, the staff were very knowledgeable about the wine, will definitely dine here again"
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "We arrived and initially we were all very impressed. Great spacing with the tables allowing for privacy. All of us looking forward to our Friday night suppa club experience. Disappointment then started to seep into our evening. The service lacked friendliness - the staff seemed more to focus on getting you out before the next seating. In the main the team were aloof on their approach, disengaged. The food was nice but we all thought it was over priced for what it was in quality (other than the deserts). The wine list was very comprehensive. All in all, we all thought that it was an ok/goodish experience but we wouldn't race back as other restaurants in the area are better. Definitely book the later option so you don't feel hurried!"
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Great food in a great place! I really enjoyed my dining experience here. Highly recommended!"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "I went to Zucca with high expectations. Having read online reviews, reviews in books and heard stories from friends I had high hopes. Unfortunately the meal did not meet my expectations. For London prices it was great. The starters- sardines and burrata were both well received. Pasta courses of veal ragu were enjoyable, though a little expensive especially compared to Antico down the road. The swordfish (main course) was good value but very poor quality: the portion was very small (a very thin slice) with visible lines of fat and a large numbers of darker/black meat. Puddings were both tasty but again very expensive for what they were- a biscuit size piece of chocolate cake for £10. Decor and drinks enjoyable."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Came here for a birthday sunday lunch. A very pleasant, welcoming environment; and the food was very well executed, with some interesting and clever combinations, without being too complicated. We really enjoyed - similar to river cafe but about half the price."
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "A must visit; we will be returning! Very helpful staff and amazing food"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "This is not an area of town I typically tread but an opportunity arose. This was very high quality Italian food, that suited a swift but informal business lunch perfectly.The food was excellent, the service swift and attentive but not in your face. A couple of glasses of wine randomly appeared on the bill that we hadn't had and the staff dealt with this immediately and pleasantly."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "Great night out and reasonably priced for outstanding food. Zucca fritti are a must!"
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant for a special occasion. Buzzy atmosphere and the food was excellent. It is expensive however the qualify of the service and the food quantifies the price. Would recommend."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "I love this restaurant and for those foodies this is definitely one to try. Excellent Italian food, lovely ambience and fantastic service. The wine list is very good too. I can't fault this place."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "One of the worst meal I've ever had! Italian food? Are you sure? Ridiculous menu... Ridiculous price... £12.5 for verdure miste ( 2 leaves of lettuce and 3 pieces of carrots) £15 for starter portion of tasteless pasta!!!"
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "I cannot fault the food at Zucca, it was lovely. However the waiting staff were very off-putting. They are constantly round the table and I felt almost hounded by them. It was as though they were in a rush to get us out of the restaurant, which no doubt was due to the fact that they had other reservations later in that evening. It made for a rather uncomfortable atmosphere as we felt we couldn't relax and have a proper conversation without being interrupted by the staff."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "The entire experience was excellent, service was second to none, being able to see the food being prepared was fascinating and the food did not disappoint in the least. Would like to go back and try other dishes, there was just so much choice, it was impossible to have everything you wanted. Highly recommend."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "zucca is advertised as good option for gluten free customers, but in fact the restaurant has practically no gluten free options (it was really only 1 option in the menu of gluten free!) and very poor vegetarian options."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "We love ths restaurant. Always delivers authentic Italian food in a lovely setting."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "I have been to Zucca four times now and each time thoroughly enjoyed it, the food is gorgeous a very good wine list And the staff helpful and lovely. It is not normally my area but go because it's sooo good"
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Very tasty food, clearly of good quality. The pasta itself tasted delicious, even without sauce. Very friendly but not overbearing service. Occasional cooking smells through the open plan kitchen."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "The quality of the food (and the wine list) at Zucca was fantastic, I would certainly rank it as some of the best Italian offerings in London, with the bread completely blowing us away. The portion sizes of the starter and the pasta however were smaller than I would expect anywhere, or for the price. Overall, amazing food but average value."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Fantastic food and the perfect level of service - I will definitely go again."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Excellent food and service but rushed. Made a reservation several weeks before and then when restaurant called to confirm the day before told me it would be a two hour sitting and we would have to vacate table. Not impressed with this as the food is expensive and very good and you don't want to be rushed when your paying that amount of money and want savour the excellent flavours."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Some restaurants make it all seem very easy to achieve that feeling as you leave that you really need to come back soon and Zucca is clearly in that bracket. The prices might have edged up a bit since the heady days just after it opened but Zucca still hits all the essential spots on food, wine and especially fabulous service."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Didn't live up to the hype and definitely not the price. I have an unlimited dining budget, and no problem with a £65 per head lunch, but at such prices the food must excite rather than be a rehash of old concepts. Also, a small, improperly made Aperol Spritz for £10 each? Zuccatabekidding."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Like italian people say : "Fuoriclasse". We enjoyed the food the service !!!!"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "What a lovely venue in which to celebrate a friend and colleague's retirement. All of us enjoyed the occasion tremendously. The service combined attentiveness without being obtrusive. Our shared starters and main courses were delicious as was the wine. Everyone agreed they would recommend Zucca to friends and visitors to London."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Went here with my husband and two children. Very nice service, a good choice of vegetarian dishes on the menu and as I had told them in advance that I am vegetarian, they made a special main meal, which was delicious. Imaginative and tasty food and excellent service."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "Went for Saturday lunch with a friend. Sleek and stylish interior yet relaxed. We shared a selection of three starters: all equally exquisite! We both had pasta for mains: as fresh as you can get and very well seasoned, perfectly al dente! We're both pregnant so didn't have any wines but I had a peek at the list and it was very comprehensive. Will certainly go back for more. Wish we had room for dessert!"
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Second visit and underwhelmed this time; mainly because the portions are ridiculously small. Asparagus and burata, a lovely dish but two spears of asparagus! Mains did well to cover the base of a 6 inch diameter bowl, and vin santo with cantucci only just hit the plural. Two biscuits. The food is well cooked, the place is packed and the decor and vibe is good but they're taking the mick with the portions"
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Excellent food and service, great value. Could improve the acoustics, have to shout to get heard!!"
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "excellent and interesting food- very fresh sea bass carpaccio, asparagus cooked prefectly, delicious turbot-"
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "I had dinner here on my own while in London for work. I am someone who takes Italian food very seriously (and had just arrived in London from Italy); each of the 3 courses I had was individually excellent, and the overall meal was outstanding."
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "Great food, great service and great wine. I had read some reviews recently suggesting that zucca had gone downhill, from our experience there on Saturday this simply isn't true. We had a lovely meal and would recommend and return without hesitation. Meal and wine weren't cheap but certainly on a par with, it if not slightly cheaper than, restaurants of a comparable quality in London and we felt we got excellent value for money. "
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "Another amazing evening at Zucca! Can't beat this really great restaurant."
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "Some nice menu additions on our latest visit The Onglet with almonds is stunning and the rabbit was very good too "
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "This was our second time to Zuca and we were pleased with the food and service again. The menu changes daily which helps to ensure that the dishes are suited to fresh ingredients. We would be happy to go back again. "
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "This is a small unpretentious restaurant. It was full early on a Saturday evening and very noisy. The menu was limited but the food was very good and the price reasonable. The service was fast-we were in and out in 1 .30 minutes-and it took us as long to get there and back. We would recommend this restaurant but not for an evening with friends as there is a 2 hour table limit; the tables are bare and chairs are minimalistic, and it was so noisy. If we lived locally we would go again."
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Have been here several times - first during the first year of operation, later for a lunch and latterly for en evening dinners. Whilst the quality of the food has remained more or less the same and good, the restaurant has crammed in more tables and prices have been raised both of which impact negatively on the experience."
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "From the starters to the desserts, everything has a taste of sunshine, and a taste of surprise. The wine is extraordinary and the food is amazing. We really enjoy the veal chop, but the dessert just gave our dinner a perfect ending."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "This experience was tops in all categories. The ambience was lovely, the food was perfectly prepared, and the service was just wonderful. The staff was so helpful and anticipated my needs before I realized I had any. "
    dined on 16/05/2014
