Zucca has been one of my favourite restaurants in London for a while now. The balance between price / quality of cooking is brilliant and the quality of ingredients is superb. Recently, one of their main chefs left to head up the kitchen at the Table and so I was keen to try Zucca again to see how they got on. And I’m happy to report that Zucca is as good as ever.
Bermondsey street is known as one of the main culinary destinations within London amongst the foodie community and restaurant Zucca is one of the key restaurants on the street. Rightfully so, the cooking is simple and straightforward but the all the dishes are balanced extremely well and the quality of ingredients is top notch.

The cooking was superb as usual and all the dishes were good. Zucca also has a superb selection of wines by the glass and bottle (we went for one of their excellent Barolos and a few glasses of the Kerner).
