Met friends for lunch and everyone had great food. We started with their meatball appetizer- yummy! Then my friend and I each got the chicken marseilla and it was delicious. Definitely a great spot for lunch, dinner and everything in between.

Beautiful atmosphere and delicious food and drinks. In the restaurant or bar it was quiet enough to hold a conversation even though the place was full on a Friday night. Can't wait to go back!

About 25 of us met in a side room. Everything was perfect: the food, the service, and the ambiance of the room. We chose from a pre-selected menu. I had the Caesar salad, cedar plank salmon (incredibly delicious dish) and creme brûlée. Outstanding. I was...More

On a Friday evening, Zesta Cucina is quite the scene. It's a huge multi-level space that's attractive and comfortable. While not terribly innovative, the food is certainly well prepared and decently priced. Wine list appropriately features many local/regional wines. Getting here is a bit of...More

Zesta as we like to call it is close to our home and a great little escape for us. Martini's can't be beat and great options for anything ranging from pasta to seafood and steak. If you are on a adult evening the bar is...More
