One of our "go to" locals

We have eaten at Zerillos dozens of times. The food is consistent and plentiful - I nearly always have to take some home. Excellent Italian - and we always enjoy Jim as our waiter. He can describe food and wine like no other waiter I have ever been served by! Highly recommend it!

We chose this restaurant for an early Mother's Day dinner with a party of 8. The service was excellent, could not have been better, and the food was delicious. The Chicken Portabello and Eggplant Parmigiana are our favorites. Plus, the Garlic Knots were terrific. We could not have been treated better and highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been eating at Zerillo's since it opened and we are never disappointed. The veal dishes are my favorites and my wife is always eager to try the specials. We live in Westchase and the other good Italian restaurants all seem to be located in south Tampa. With Zerillo's there is no reason to drive all the way to... More

Zerillos Italian Grill- What a great discovery! There are many good italian restaurants in the area, but it is always difficult to plan a last minute dinner on a weekend. We called Saturday 6 pm to see if we needed reservations and they said we should be able to get in with 1/2 hr wait. The appearance of the store... More

This is a great place to unwind at the bar or have a great dinner with family or friends. Atmosphere is inviting and casual; and their Oso Buco or Lobster Raioli are always my favorites. And don't forget to order the Garlic Knots ( House special bread- soo good!). My kids love to have the piza or th stuffed shekels,... More

We had just moved to Westchase and were looking for a place to eat. We just kind of stumbled into this place. It looked busy so we figured "why not?". Even though it as busy we were seated right away. Menu has several options in a number of categories. Our waiter (Jim) suggested a house blend wine, which was very... More

We were in Tampa visiting some friends and they suggested Italian for dinner – they live nearby and eat here frequently but it was our first time. It was VERY busy when we arrived, but we found a seat at the bar and waited about 15 minutes for a table. After sitting down, we checked out the menu and ordered... More

The pizza is great - dine in or out. Call ahead, the lines are long on busy nights like Friday but the service comes with a smile. This is a favorite local dining spot. The atmosphere is pleasant in the dining room and the food is delicious and authentic.
