Avenue Las condes has always been quite paltry with its selection of restaurants. Apart from a few interesting places like the now extinct Colonia Café or peruvian delivery Rocoto, theres few interesting alternatives in this important area. This is why the opening of Zucchini attracts attention, a new place with good Italian food which has all the desire of becoming a neighborhood restaurant.
We start to understand it’s concept with the warm terrace, small first floor and cozy second.
We began the tour with a tasty “Trigoto Centolla.” A mild sweet accent, with all the gluttony of a corn grain, topped by a modest crab meat.
A classic small trattoria is the “Carpaccio”. We tried the fish selection, well made and loaded with lemon caper and Salmon. A soft and creamy dish with mild touches of bittersweet.
the “Vegetarian Ceviche”, an interesting and quite compelling mix of crunchy vegetables that truly won thanks to the presence of bamboo.
Ended the appetizers was “Glazed Octopus”, soft and tasty octopod meat with a potent sweet sauce.
| Main Course
Starting the main course was a classic Italian dish, the “Ossobuco ala Milanese.” A homemade recipe with plentiful portioning, providing a greedy taste thanks to the inevitable bone.
A very tasty “Risotto al Dente” arrived soon there after, followed by a “Green Fettuccini” with Puttanesca sauce. This was a good sauce with correct sourness, but the pasta was a little overcooked.
The next dish, “Fettuccini Frutti di Mare” was tasty with the seafood cooked al dente. With a little more preparation, the flavors would have been locked together better.
Zucchini is definitely an option for those wanting good Italian food and something easy in Las Condes. Just be warned that some of it’s offerings lack balance, and that the service is not the best.
