Wonderful little place for a quiet dinner. We arrived after 7 in evening and the place was half full. The owner, Berna Nar, greeted us and we were seated immediately.

We enjoyed Spicy Seafood Soup, Chicken Limon, and Mixed Grill Platter. By far the favorite was the Mixed Grill. It included chicken kabob, gyro meat, lamb chops, lamb patties, artichoke hearts, carrot salad, pea salad, rice, and cucumber sauce. The whole platter was delicious and the favorite was the lamb patties.

For dessert we had shredded baklava with pistachios and bread dessert with marscapone cheese. Both were excellent.

Entire bill was $66.00. Not bad for such a fine dinner. Pics posted.

I spend a lot of time on Tripadvisor, but I generally don't review restaurants. However, the Cafe Zuppina is an exception! This is a wonderful little place, with great food, a terrific and friendly owner, who is sincerely interested in providing the very best food and dining experience. You have to try this restaurant. One of the best places we've eaten - ever.

Wonderful food at a tiny place. There are only 6 or 8 tables and 2 or 3 people working, including the cooks, but the food is excellent.

3-7-14 fast and friendly service. Greek salad was amazing...red lentil soup was even better. Fairly priced as well. This was our first visit and we can't wait to go back!

If you are looking for a traditional Mediterranean meal with superb care of preparation, go to Cafe Zuppina. Great ingredients, prepared with care, pride and a love of cooking. Vegetable preparations are the best. If you want something specially made, call ahead to see if your request can be granted. Ate here twice during my week's stay in Lakeland.
