4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

Went here on a recommendation from friends for dinner this week and were very pleased with the quality of the pasta and salad bar ingredients. Service was OK- which allowed us time to talk and enjoy our meal rather than rushing through it. Restaurant was easy to find and parking was easy and very adequate. Prices were within reason.

This was my first visit and I absolutely loved my pizza. Zano's also has a great bar and makes great drinks. Service is great and quick. I am returning soon and will be telling my friends about the great Zano pizzas.

Great place to take a family for an informal dinner or gathering. Great with kids as place has a small game room giving kids something to do. Good is pretty good with large portions and a nice kids menu. Prices are as expected at a family restaurant.

My sister, brother-in-law and I had dinner here in May, 2014. It's a cute place with a long bar and an outdoor patio. Indoor dining has about 10+ tables. The bar was full when we got there and it must have been a very happy bunch because it was so noisy we couldn't talk to each other. Service was slow... More

Pizzas are aweful do not order. Domino's better. Other dishes are okay but expensive. Service is good and sangria yummy. Probably will not come back since the food is just okay for the cost.

5 of us had an awesome meal last night at Zano's! Despite a huge local athletic event, we were seated in 10 minutes. Service was a tad slow (place was totally packed), but our server Dan kept us happy. We tried the cheese/garlic bread, gnocchi, spaghetti & meatballs, fettuccine alfredo and a calzone. Everything was delicious! Was thrilled with the... More

I liked the bar service and drinks good. Pizza was ok but pricey and service didn't exist. Manager was too busy talking to see all the upset patrons

The food and drink were ok and they have gluten free pizza, but they gave us a hard time about bringing n our Guide Dog puppy in training so I won't go back.

Such a cute spot, with great staff. The food was OUTSTANDING, and I am an Italian and pretty picky. The lasagna had three cheese and both ground beef and hot sausage, for example. Primo. The salads were huge and meals in and of themselves for only a dollar extra. Each of our dishes also came with fresh veggies sautéed in... More
