Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Fiori di Zucca, Frittelli

There are a few names for this tasty Italian Treat.... where can I find them? I know Crispo had them in the past and I read that Pala has them. Anywhere else? Thanks!

    1. Bacaro has them.

      Several of the Roman-style trattorie might offer it as a seasonal special. Lupa and Cacio e Pepe come to mind. There is also the recently opened Sora Lella and Quinto Quarto, neither of which I have tried.

        I replied on Outer Boroughs. In additon to Bacaro, menupages lists four or five midtown places.

          Find-a-food is a great resource. However, I believe these other places you mention might incorporate zucchini flowers into other dishes such as pasta or risotto. Worth giving those menus a careful looking over though, to be sure.

          I think OP (if I understood correctly) is specifically looking for fried, stuffed zucchini flowers such as Bacaro or Pala serve.

            I think I searched for fiori di zucca ripieni, but double check the menus for sure.

      2. I had an incredible one, just added to the menu, at Marea last night. A little pricey at $10 for one blossom, but worthy every penny. Filled with mozzarella and anchovy and out of this world. Also Michael White and Rocky Cirino (manager featured today on are super sweet!

        1. Novita had them last week.
