Great Atmosphere & Great Food

Dine in at romantic, cozy tables, or outside in the courtyard -- tasty & reasonably priced food & drinks. One of the few restaurants that serve a REAL Caesar Salad -- WITH ANCHOVIES (if you wish)!! Also had a terrific Pesto Sauce. Service was great as well. We'll be back, and would recommend this... read more

I was a regular diner until today, when I happened to have my little dog with me. Although they have a nice separate outside patio area, they would not allow me to bring the dog into the open patio so they lost a regular customer. There was no reason for their position regarding the dog.

Great little bar atmosphere. Good pricing for drinks only. We ate last year but the timing was not right to eat this year.

We were in Daytona for a week, and this was by FAR, the best meal we had. The service was amazing and the atmosphere was warm. Highly recommended.

I work close to this place, and have been a handful of times for lunch. When it first opened, it was not the best, but fair amount of food for lunch and pretty good wait staff. They would have a few daily specials and service was fine. It has gone downhill each visit. Our last visit was unreal. We paid... More

I previously visited Zappa’s for a light lunch with my friend, who happened to own an adjacent business, so that she was recognized and we were courteously treated by the owner (obviously, a whim). Unfortunately, a subsequent visit on Valentine’s Day with my partner resulted in such ill treatment by the owner, even before we were seated! Our reservation had... More

My 4th or 5th time sit down dining. I pick up food quite frequently also. It is always great . I went last night, a party of four and it was extremely busy. I figured so much for watching the Olympics. We were served like we were the only diners. Impeccable service and great food once again. A real treat... More

I don't know how Zappi's is still in business! The waitress was so unprofessional & slow.to take our order. The food was soooo bad we couldn't eat it ( seriously)!!! The four of all had something different too! Please don't waste your time & money!

Visited a few days ago for lunch. We both ordered the eggplant parmesean and we were both delighted. Wonderful sauce, good helping of cheese and no breading on the eggplant made the dish quite tasty. Service was very good and friendly. Glad we tried again!
