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

When you walk into Zano's, you will be impressed. Seated you'll note that the place looks really nice. Our server, Emily was very attentive and pleasant. We ordered a Large Pizza, we both had a side salad. I ordered a diet Pepsi. The soda came wrong. It appears that the DP on the bar hose means Dr. Pepper, not Diet... More

We had a really really bad experience here. And it was even more shocking because the place came so highly recomended. The service was fine but when you are paying $18 a plate you expect decent tasting food (even in a touristy type place where higher prices are the norm.) We tried the fried ravioli but it wasn't thawed and/or... More
