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!

We had a large group (11) and everyone was happy with their meal--there were lots of takehome boxes! From the Osso Buco (chianti sauce with gorgonzola potato gratin--yum!), to Spaghetti Bolognese, from calzones to pizza, everything is very high quality and fresh. Pizza combinations are unusual and delicious (e.g artichoke, sausage and gorgonzola cheese) Tiramisu, cheesecake and coffee were terrific.... More

One the restaurants I always visit when in Truckee. Love their pizza, it's thin but not like flat bread or firewood pizza. Service is normally good, but the last time we ate there, the kitchen was really backed up and my son's pizza came after we had finished our salad and pizza, bummer because his small cheese pizza should have...

A family dining out. Staff is very friendly and very efficient. The food was very good. Everyone in our party enjoyed the dinner. It is always one of our stops while visiting our family in Truckee.

We went to Zanos last night and my lasagna was amazing and a HUGE portion. I only ate half. My son and husband ordered fettuccine alfredo with chicken added and it was ok. It was bland and they asked for extra sauce. They bring you a hot roll and butter. There is oil to dip it in too. Salad is... More

All of us had various types of pasta and all were happy campers. I had the ravioli and the angel hair pasta with chicken was also a hit. The vegetables in the pasta were very fresh. Would definitely recommend this place to friends.

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
