Olimpia Zuccarelli

Owner & Operator - Zuccarelli’s Restaurant

Olimpia Zuccarelli spent her early years in Bronxville, New York, before moving with her family to South Florida in the early 1970s. Her family quickly opened a deli in Pompano Beach, Florida, which later expanded to include the original Zuccarelli’s Restaurant. Olimpia’s time working in the family restaurant sparked a love for business and cooking that empowered her to expand the family business. Olimpia is now the proud owner and operator of Zuccarelli’s Restaurant in West Palm Beach, Florida, where she continues her family’s Italian traditions by preparing old world recipes using only the finest ingredients.

When you work this much, you also have to keep a sense of humor. We are always laughing at Zuccarelli’s. At the end of the day, it’s a dish of pasta. It’s a piece of fish. It’s a side of meatballs. Although it is common knowledge that you can’t please everybody all the time, at Zuccarelli’s we never stop trying! We work hard to earn people’s appreciation and loyalty. When we see customers react with pleasure the way they do, it just makes it all worthwhile. It’s the satisfaction of being paid a compliment, when people tell us they love it at Zuccarelli’s, or when they recommend us to their friends and family to have dinner here because it has been such a great experience. The key to success, the whole idea, is to get customers to come back again. And again. And again. Loyal customers are the foundation of a successful business!
