Tried out this long standing restaurant located at Harbour Square, CCP Complex in Malate, Manila. After a hearty dinner at a restaurant nearby, we decided to try something else other than Starbucks for dessert. Zucchero Cafe does not look like an inviting Cafe from the out side and a quick look inside, they are due for a proper renovation. The place looked dark and unkept.

They have a display fridge for the Cakes they offer. We tried the following:
Chocolate Cake - moist, Chocolate cake with a thick Chocolate ganache center, topped with more Chocolate a Chocolate curl on top. It was not too sweet and the Chocolate taste was just right.
Dulce de leche cheesecake - thick, dense Cheesecake topped with diabetically deadly sweet dulce de leche. It was not extraordinary in taste. It tasted rather tired, and not fresh.
Mango Cheesecake - this one on the other hand was soft and smoothies. The Mango slices on top was also been in the fridge too long. Another not so moving item in the menu, i guess. The prices was upscale but the taste and Presentation was just Average.

Service was quick but no one was out front to welcome guests, no wonder why the place was barely filled. Would love to visit again.

We wanted to try Gangam Korean Resto with the face of the singer- Psy. It was closed and ended of trying a Filipino Cafe- Zucchero.

The food was comforting good but was served too long despite us being the lone customer. You gotta try their Zucchero vegetables which had string beans, pork, coconut and chili. That was memorable. The spiciness had a nice kick which stayed in the mouth. Highly recommend this.

Beef Caldereta had a generous portion and the meat was tender. The sauce was thick enough and wonderful paired with potatoes and carrots.

The Tanigue Miso was just okay. I wondered why they had to fry the fish. This made the soup too oily.

Well I had two rice which meant I’ll be likely come back when in the area. This place was a resto worth risking. Try it too!

Oh the chocolate cake to end it was delightful. Not too sweet and moist! The only concern was that it crumbled on each slice.

The place has an excellent ambience. We went here just for dessert after having a feast elsewhere. Service was good too. What gave it a 3 star were the cakes we bought. The blueberry cheesecake tasted stale, and it tasted more like gelatin than cheesecake. Perhaps the other food they serve are better, I'm just not sure how fresh their cakes are.

This is for the Intramuros branch 128522

Nice interiors, nice not great. I don't know if there are many people going here since it's summer and there are still no classes for college students and we came here with only one other group of people inside.

On to the food...

I had Iced Cafe Latte and Chicken & Bacon Ravioli, my boyfriend had Puttanesca and Strawberries & Cream

Cafe Latte tasted hmmm... INSTANT?
Chicken & Bacon Ravioli, generous servings, slightly hard pasta and not so many nor tasty filling but it was okay, I liked the tomato sauce.

Strawberries & Cream was.... I think, a little too sweet.
Puttanesca was, again, okay.. for me.

Fast service (it should be since there aren't any many dining), kind staff.

Pricey for just "just okay" dishes.
