We went to Zazio's for a three-course Restaurant Week meal, and it confirmed our view that it is probably the best spot for fine dining in Kalamazoo. The wine list is very strong in Italian wines, and I had an excellent 2010 Franco Serra Barbaresco--$14 for a glass and worth every cent. The braised beef entree came in a rich,... More

Great little Italian rest. Not your normal spag and sauce place. Some very unique choices for the more adventurous diner.

Went to Zazio's for New Years Eve dinner and really enjoyed the multi course dinner. We both enjoyed the choices starting with bruschetta for Amy scallops for me, followed by an amazing gnocchi with mushrooms for me and ravioli for Amy, for the main course I had a really great steak seasoned and prepared perfectly at med-rare, while my bride...

Recently I planned an anniversary dinner and a night at the Radisson hotel in Kalamazoo for my brother who is in the service and his wife. Both of them were blown away at their experience. My sister-in-law said it was the best service she had ever experienced; their server was so kind, and went to all ends to make sure... More

My boyfriend and I dined here last night for New Year's Eve. My food was delicious! Every course seemed to just impress me more and dessert and a complimentary glass of champage topped off a perfect evening. Our server Kate was attentive and personable. She kept us updated on a small delay between courses, asked us about food allergies which... More

Zazios has some of the best food in town. We always return, but the service continues to feel overdone and patronizing. Not with every sever that I see there, but I seem to get one of the ones who "knows it all" and talk down to clients and is less than gracious. The pastas never fail and the pizza is... More

One of our favorites for birthdays, anniversaries and celebrations. Great food, wine selection and service. If you are looking for a real food experience, try the chef's table.

This restaurant is by far the best "Fine Dining" restaurant in Kalamazoo. I can't give it an "Excellent" rating simply because you have to wait so terribly long to order and get your cocktail. I swear they could make several times more $$ if the servers were a bit more efficient from the get-go. Invariably I have to ask if... More

Something is wrong in the kitchen and with the training of staff. Zazio’s used to serve every meal with perfection no matter the size of the party or what you ordered. Our colleague who warned us that Zazio’s has gone downhill is feeling vindicated and the restaurant has likely lost the lot of us as future guests while creating multiplying... More
