First, the good news - this is a great Italian restaurant (with an English head chef/owner) in an upcoming part of town. The food is excellent, the service attentive and 'simpatico', and the space is well used and nicely decorated. Then the bad news - Zucca is closing next week (23 December 2015 I believe) due to a change of lease. A major loss to the area so go now while you can ! Among the starters the sea bass carpaccio and the frittata stand out, but other options such as the burrata with cavolo nero are also good. The pasta dishes are delicious (ask the waiting staff for suggestions) but so are the sword fish, ox cheek and octopus. To close the dessert menu is short but brilliant including the best pannacotta (accompanied by plums) that I have ever eaten. Outstanding ! The wine list doesn't impress me so much and the restaurant doesn't aspire to fine dining (no tablecloths) but, overall, this is an establishment that will be sorely missed.
