Authentic, hot and tasty pizza

While in town on business, we had an opportunity to visit Zeno's. The atmosphere was pleasant and smelled of fresh pizza, the choices of toppings was abundant, and the food was served piping hot. Refills were also quick and plentiful. Probably the best pizza within 50 miles.

Some of the familiar friendly faces of the waitstaff are gone. Why seat is near a large, loud group when there is plenty of other tables open? That said the taco pizza is unchanged and the best ever.

This is a Marshalltown tradition! The pizza is good and served hot! The pizza is excellent but not the cheapest in town.

I remember any find times eating at Zenos when I was in high school, but it has really changed. Pizza was greasy and mostly dough. The sauce was tart and acidy. The service was ok, but we were rushed to finish so they could seat others. I think I will just stick to memories and go to one of the... More

This is the oldest pizza place in Marshalltown, and probably one of the oldest in the midwest. Started in early 50s. Family owned and run all this time. Changed hands a couple of years ago, but still a family business. When former residents come back to Marshalltown, they hit Zeno's (and the Maid Rite, of course!).

I've eaten here many times in the past and this time, we noticed new flooring, fresh paint on the walls, and re-upholstered seating. Still has that great charm of an old-time pizza parlor, but has been freshened up. Service was ok, had to track down our waitress for refills since we didn't see her after placing our order, for quite... More

Terrific food, great employees and environment. Loved it for a first date, we went back again! Our kids enjoyed as well! They aren't the type to hover but are attentive. They closed on our first date and didn't even kick us out ( we were chatty and they just let us be)!

Zeno's is unlike any other pizza joint in town. Great topics and sauce, lots of unique styles and toppings you can't get anywhere else. It's pricey but you can taste the difference.

We always meet friends at Zeno's whenever we are in Marshalltown. Best pizza of all! We've tried their different pizzas and they are all good. Their cheese bread is very good, too.
