Always consistent

A wonderful restaurant with an extensive menu. The Italian family that runs it is always there & running! Timbo, the chef & owner always has a fun story to tell if you eat at the bar. His wife Diana is hostess, server & bartender. The calamari steak is my favorite! The restaurant is huge, large enough for big parties and... More

Every year on President's Weekend, we have 20+ people roll into town and we always descend on Zano's one of the nights. It is always a busy holiday weekend, and they always roll with our big crazy group (we make a reservation, of course!) The pizza and salads are very good, the kids in our group look forward to the...

We ordered 3 pies, and 2 family salads for 11 of us. There was not a crumb to be found between Lena's Pizza, Uncle Sonny's pizza (a crowd favorite), and my absolute... More

I've reviewed Zano's before - I love this place! Good food, large portions, reasonably priced and great down to earth servers. Zano's is close to my home in Tahoe Donner, also.

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
