Tonight the six of us dined at zabagliones restaraunts. The server Jean was very friendly and efficient however the food was not as good as we thought it might be. The sauce on my gnocchi did not taste good at all. The other five felt their veal chops and fradiavolo was just o.k. Deserts were more than ample and was... More

Although this was a group dinner with 20 guests, the staff and chefs did a very good job keeping the food coming and nothing served at the wrong temperature. There was one snafu in the kitchen in which several people were served chicken parmigiana instead of veal. The server worked very closely with me to ensure that I received gluten... More

A favorite for many years, this small, intimate restaurant serves superb food. When confronted with the menu, it's almost impossible to choose...though the veal chop is amazing, as is the pasta and...well everything! Large portions, but dessert is a must! Good wine list...attentive service...best to make reservations on weekends.

Everything is made to order in this small Italian restaurant. Sometimes you may need to wait a bit for your food, but it is worth it. We think this place is as good as any restaurant in the North End. The servers are really personable. Our favorites are the Caesar Salad, Chicken Picasa, anything Parmigiana, and the Carbonara.

I recently visited Ipswich as a solo traveler. Outside of the restaurant I could see thru the windows that they had a number of small tables. I was welcomed very warmly and the service was excellent. The Caprese salad was outstanding, the Chicken Marsala was fair, meat was not as tender as it should have been. The tiramisu dessert was... More

We chose this restaurant for dinner on a cold spring evening after visiting the historic Crane mansion in Ipswich. Nothing else was open on a Sunday evening during the "off" season in a seaside town, and there were vegetarian options for my friend. When I saw that there was only one other table occupied, I was concerned that we might... More

Zabaglione has been around for a number of years and has always been very nice but also expensive. Zabaglione cafe reopened next door and offers good food at a moderate price.

Just enjoyed excellent experience at Zabagliones. Veal chop (a bit expensive $32) was prepared excellently. Service was great. Restaurant is small so call ahead. Food is prepared to order and came hot Desert was to die for. (Signature chocolate cake )

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous meal in December. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in to see the Chef cooking right in front of us in an intimate setting. Food was spectacular -- and how many places end the list of Specials with "if you don't see something you want on the menu, he'll make it for... More
