Description: This is a brand new restaurant.They offer pasta dishes, sandwiches, and pizza. This is a nice sit down restaurant with good service. The prices are competitive and the food is good.We stopped in for lunch and ate Fettucini Alfredo (my husband's favorite) and Chicken Ascoliana (new to me). The food was very good and the portions were large. The meal was served with garlic rolls and soup or salad. We definitely would return to ths restaurant.

“Not the place for a quiet meal with a friend, mediocre food, creepy atmosphere.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We were two ladies who stopped in at 4:00 pm for a late lunch/early dinner in a Saturday afternoon. We sat at a booth and our orders were taken. We started with glasses of wine and within ten minutes we were asked if we wanted more wine. My guest sad yes, even though her glass was 3/4 full, since our waiter implied we were in a happy hour. Later we learned we weren't in happy hour and after we had already paid our bill, the waiter came back to tell us we owed $5 more (after the bill was run and paid) for the second glass of wine.
She wouldn't have ordered it if he hasn't implied that she should get it prior to happy hour ending.
Atmosphere? None. While eating our meal, another, older male patron came to our booth and sat himself down and started a trivial conversation and interrupted our meal. It was uncomfortable and unwelcome. We were not at a bar, but dining. The waiter saw this and did nothing to move this creep on from our booth. After we got rid of this creep, the waiter came over and apologized. He said the staff there knew this guy was bothering all the women in the restaurant and they did nothing to stop him. We were not there at a bar, we were having lunch in a booth and the staff was obviously aware of this patron bothering female diners and they didn't care.
Food is mediocre. The pasta fagioli soup was a plate of beans, a few pasta noodles and no broth. We asked for calamari (their special that day) to be served without tentacles and the waiter said they could not serve rings only so we did not order it. Otherwise what we ordered was relatively tasteless.
There are too many places with a nice atmosphere, better food and knowledgable staff to eat at locally. We won't be back.

“Great food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Whilst on holiday from the UK we tried out this restaurant. I am a self avowed "big eater" and came away not needing to eat a pudding. The veal entreè was delicious as was my daughter's chicken ascoliana. The restaurant serves you garlic bread as you sit down which was delicious. With the entreè, you get a nice bowl of spaghetti and a side salad. Our waitress,Britney, was attentive without being pushy. My son's 10 inch pizza (small) was very nice foo. We would not hesitate to recommend this establishment.

“Awesome Pizza”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We had pizza delivered to hour hotel.
Quick service, and AWESOME pizza.
They use all fresh ingredients, crust is of a thin light texture - and very, very good.

“Top quality Italian”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Had a coupon to Zuccarelli's, so we thought we'd try it for dinner. What a pleasant experience. The restaurant is not large and offers an intimate setting. Our server was helpful and friendly. She explained that the mozzarella was freshly made and the veal was prepared daily. I ordered the veal parmesan, which came with a side of either spaghetti, angel hair, or ziti. My wife ordered the chicken caprese with angel hair. The meal also included a garden salad. Zuccarelli's sauce is one of the best I've had in a restaurant. It is not too heavy, but has a great flavor and body. The house chianti was also very good, with a healthy pour.
The portions were large and we took part of the chicken with us. This restaurant ranks with the ones I have patronized in NYC Prices are very reasonable,
