"It's hard to make exceptional pasta – it's by definition hard to make exceptional comfort food – but Zucca does, in this instance with a dish of rigatoni, courgettes and pecorino." READ REVIEW

"Zucca feels like Trullo's grown-up brother – it's what the latter would have looked like if they'd had fat investors wanting a piece of the action." READ REVIEW

"It was at the main-course stage, however, that we really began to understand the fuss. A generous chop of (English) veal came perfectly seasoned, impeccably timed and full of flavour." READ REVIEW

"This is what we have all been clamouring for. This is the reason why we eat out. Refreshingly rustic recipes expertly cooked, a modern room with industrial design sensibilities, friendly but not over-bearing service and an affordable bottom line." READ REVIEW

"Our order for swordfish appeared instead as grilled squid. We didn't complain: the squid looked good, and with a chilli and lemon dressing (and more handfuls of that rocket getting everywhere), it was an excellent dish, very fresh and nicely cooked." READ REVIEW
