“Lovely, spontaneous evening meal!”

Zucchini Italian Kitchen
Ranked #15 of 119 Restaurants in Helston
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$9 - US$19
Description: This is our brand new contemporary Italian restaurant in the heart of Cornwall but not our first. Our others were around London. Where it was not unusual to rub shoulders with Chelsea players or F1 drivers and Top Gear presenters (previous restaurants were close to Chelsea's training ground and the Top Gear studio). It's true everyone loves Italian! Some say you can judge the quality of a restaurant from its tomato sauce. Well, we're pretty proud of ours. It's made by brothers Philippe and Jean and with over 40 years of experience between them. They know what they are doing! We offer an extensive and delicious Italian menu made from the freshest and finest ingredients because you deserve nothing less! Our kitchen grinds its own meat, bakes pizza bread and makes our sauces from scratch daily.

Always lived a short distance away from Zucchini's, but never been before. Had the spontaneous idea to go out tonight, and decided to go for the first time; brilliant idea! Walked in and the interior was gorgeous. My boyfriend ordered a luxury hot chocolate and quite frankly, with my pot of tea next to me, I was very jealous. The food was wonderful; I had the chilli, ate every morsel, and our deserts were great too (three scoops of ice cream!!). The prices were definitely worth what we were getting, by both size and taste. The staff (Izzi, Chloe, and Lauren) were very welcoming, and a pleasure to be served by. Would definitely recommend, and will most likely come again soon!

My partner and I found this restaurant by chance just as we were leaving Cornwall. The restaurant is in a quiet and secluded location, overlooking the beautiful Cornish countryside. The restaurant is large, clean and well decorated.

We were very happy with our meal. The Chicken Breast Goujons, Tagliatelle Carbonara and waffle for dessert were very tasty. Our waitresses, Charlie and Emily, were both friendly and provided us with a great service throughout our time at the restaurant. One of the owners, Hannah, was also very helpful in recommending places to visit in the South West of England.

We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends back in London. Overall it was a very lovely end to our trip in Cornwall.

Booked our table via phone, arrived on time and shown to our table and given menus, the restaurant is clean, has a nice atmosphere and a good menu, all good so far. It looked busy but not overly so for a Saturday evening, so after twenty minutes waiting, eventually a very pleasant waitress took our drinks and food order. After another long wait our drinks arrived and I can throughly recommend the Italian Soda's?! And so after what seemed an eternity the food arrived!? Food amazing, beautiful, tasty, well cooked!! After we finished our meal waited ages for desert menus, and then it took so long for anyone to return we just didn't bother, shame because they looked beautiful? So overall amazing food, rubbish service, over two hours to get one course of food!! Hope it was just a bad night because the food was amazing!! And incase you are wondering why I didn't express my concerns at the time, the waitress who I paid at the end of the meal, didn't even think to ask how our experience was?! Poor service!!
