Great food

The food was awesome and the wait staff was very nice. I'm not sure if they were understaffed on the day that we went, but it took a while for our food to come out. Other than that, we have a great experience.

I grew up in Connecticut, am Italian, spent a lot of time in New York, and know really good Italian food. The staff at Zerillo's is very friendly and helpful. However, we have eaten there twice, once had the pizza, and second time pasta. The pizza was not good at all! The spaghetti with meat sauce was very greasy. The... More

I've been several times. We get take out on occasion and it's always pretty decent. Tonight dined in and it was one of the better dinners I've had anywhere lately. Calamari was perfectly cooked. Bruschetta feature incredible. Best Caesar salad I've had in a while. Lobster ravioli and veal picatta both Devine. Service nearly perfect. Stephanie was great. Not 100%... More

I'm Italian, from Queens, NYC. I've lived in Tampa, FL for 34 years and have been dining at Tampa restaurants for 40 years. I've dined at many restaurants that claim to be NYC Italian. Some get very close. My wife has spoiled me, so I'm tough to please at Italian restaurants. She had lunch with friend at Zerillos and recommended... More

Dined here on 3 occasions over the last year and each time was satisfied but not overwhelmed by the quality of the food or the service. Since we have to drive 45 minutes to get to Zerillo's , have decided too many good Italian restaurants closer to home so we won't be back.

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
