    Had a nice lunch with an old friend at Zucca. In general everything was good and fresh. It feels very comfortable and you can see all the comings and goings on the street outside. The open kitchen's extractor fan isn't quite up to the job so a strong smell from the grilling sardines permeated the air.

    Most enjoyable - delicious food, nice ambience and service. Wine seems rather overpriced, and no house choice, but then we have just come back from Conegliano where Prosecco is cheaper with lunch in a restaurant than sparkling water - truly!

    Definitely the best Italian meal we have ever had, and probably one of the best meals we have had anywhere. The food was just incredible, fresh, bursting with flavour, beautifully presented. The service was friendly, professional and efficient and the ambiance was great. The wine waiter was very good also - the wine list is impressively large but all Italian split into regions, we know a little bit about Italian wine but wanted to try something a bit different and we asked the sommelier to recommend a "Pinot Noir type wine, light and fruity and not too tannic" and he really came up with the goods - a beautiful wine we had never heard of before that perfectly fitted the description and was well within the price range requested. Tremendous!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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
