This is our go to place when we want takeout pizza in Truckee. All varieties are excellent and their deep dish is the best we have had this side of Chicago. We have dined in as well. Very good food and service. Back rooms for large groups. Can get very busy on holiday weekends; remember this is a resort area.... More

Ordered a few different take out items recently, salad pizza and pasta. Order was prepared quickly and the food was great. Had not been here in years and was not disappointed.

Food was mediocre, Service was terrible. We were part of a group. The waitress served the folks at the aisle end of the table and ignored the four of us at the other end of the table. Kept bringing salad to the aisle end, we never did get any. Beer was warm by the time she got around to serving... More

This place has an extensive menu of excellent Italian food as well as their very popular pizzas. Service was very prompt and attentive in spite of the fact that they were busy. Servers work on the run. The eggplant parmigiana and the spinach salad were delicious, as good as the best big city places. When I clumsily spilled my glass... More

ZANOS is located in a strip mall so don't count on ambiance, however if you want good food, this is the place. There were 12 of us and we individually ordered from the menu. We were seated in the back dining room and specifically chose a time to avoid crowds. Everything was perfect. While a variety of items were ordered,... More

The food was not well prepared. The dishes seemed thrown together without any care. The atmosphere is acceptable if you enjoy looking out a kid's game arcade from the dining room.

If you are looking for a casual dining place to take the family, a date or just go and hang out at the bar with friends this is the place. You will definitely not leave this place hungry! The portions sizes are great for the price. They have a full bar, main dining room (some private dining rooms as well)... More

Appalling service very unfriendly I was surprised. Food is just ok spaghetti over cooked and sauces flavorless. My friend brought his dog and we asked if we could sit near the open gate on the back patio and tie him outside the gate an area not on their property the wait staff told us they would close the gate! Really... More
