Looks can be deceiving.

Have eaten at Zorba's many times and have always been satisfied. The Pizza is very good and their sit-down dinners are tasty, and they're huge. Be prepared to take some home. Doesn't look like much from the outside but it's nice and cozy on the inside.

There won't be any crust leftovers when you order Zorbas pizza. The dough is delish in their thick style pies with plenty of cheese and just the right amount of spice and oil. Yum!

We liked the service and the menu. The food was good, the portions large. And we liked being in a non-chain restaurant, where everyone else was local and knew each other. We'd go back.

We came here because every other restaurant had an hour wait on a Saturday night. They had no wait. They are not very expensive and the food is pretty good. I got manicotti and it was ok. It had the taste of metal which was off putting but I was really hungry so I ate the entire dish. Another in... More

We used to be regular customers of Zorbas but had stayed away for a few years die to a bad experience. We were welcomed back by the wait staff who were very accommodating. The mean manager (owner?) was nowhere to be seen. I had the special pasta with chicken and prosciutto and found it to be too salty. My husband... More

The pizza here has always been really great Each time we come (usually 8-10 of us) we get all different kinds of toppings for our pies to test them out. Always delish! We get the salad bar while we are waiting. I especially like there seafood pasta dishes as well-- so when I'm shopping at the Meriden mall nearby I... More

The food here has always been very good and the service is usually good. The salad bar is small but does offer the stuffed grape leaves. There are pizza/sub offerings as well as regular lunches and dinners. Be advised, soft drink refills are not free. Other than that you should have a good time here.

Food was fresh and served by friendly waitstaff. Although salad bar was small, the entries on it were wonderful. The soup was great.

If there were half stars, I think I'd go for a 2 1/2. We visited Zorba's again on one of those days when, if Mom were available, you'd want to go have dinner at her house. Well... we found "home" - Zorba's- drastically changed. Gone were the funky Greek decorations and marvelous murals (wish I'd taken a picture before- who... More
