Zocca executive chef Jeff Foresman draws on his 25 years of experience as a chef in hotels from Hawaii to Washington, DC and his passion for fresh, local ingredients to curate lunch and dinner menus of contemporary Italian cuisine. Appetizers prime palates with classic combinations of tomato, garlic, and basil spread across bruschetta, sprinkled atop brick-oven pizettas, or served as antipasto arranged in the shape of Fabio's face. Veal, steak, chicken, and seafood comprise the centerpieces of dinnertime entrees, which include the strip-steak cacciatore frolicking with crisped pancetta, juicy tomatoes and onions, and forest mushrooms, or the semolina-crusted grouper. Midday diners can squash hunger pangs with a roasted veggie panini marinated with balsamic vinegar or a shrimp-topped pizza.

Exposed wooden beams and luxurious onyx panels surround ample seating in Zocca's elegant dining room. Add a side of fresh air to any meal when the restaurant's doors are opened to the outside world, or enjoy riverside evenings on the patio, where you can indulge your brain with daydreams of becoming a fancy gondolier.

Zocca Cuisine d'Italia

Chef Jeff Foresman has been creating eclectic dishes for hotels across the country for the past 25 years. Inside Zocca Cuisine d'Italia's kitchen, he transforms local produce, cheese, and meats into Italian food including oversize veal meatballs and steak cacciatore.

Nestled inside the Westin Riverwalk Hotel, the ground-floor eatery sweeps open onto the river. Sun flits past the towering cypress trees that lean over the river and shade patrons on the patio. During nice weather, folding glass walls open up to let in warm breezes and the weeping of meteorologists who predicted thunderstorms. Wooden beams spanning the ceiling and copper accents drench the interior in warmth, and beneath them, servers dispense hand-tossed pizzas and lemon-crusted whitefish.

Great date experiences and other fun two-person activities
