Decent Food/Poor Atmosphere

My wife and I frequent this restaurant once a year for her birthday since she is an avid Italian food fan. But after some poor service experiences and outdated atmosphere, we will likely make a switch to somewhere else. Their food is good though, so you still may see us from time to time.

It's hard to say what I like best about Zeppoli's - the fresh pasta, the wonderful meal salads, fresh bread, specials, wine flights, rotating art, staff. I often go alone but also take guests.

In town for business. Had a great dinner and it was served quickly and very hot! Get the Greek Shrimp. Very fresh and taste. I hear you can ask for it to be baked! Desserts are not made there except for the cannoli.

I am a seafood lover, so add fresh-made egg fettuccini, and plenty of butter garlic sauce, to large wild-caught gulf shrimp, sea scallops, and mussels, and I'm in heaven. Before, or after, you've been seated, look at all the "retail" priced wine in the wine shop that is part of this restaurant. Ask for (excellent) help, or make your own... More

Atmosphere was cozy and warm. Food was outstanding, service was wonderful and we'll return when we're in the area next.

What's the line from the old poem? "A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou . . "? Well, technically Zeppoli's doesn't serve their wines in jugs, but the sentiment is accurate. Mom & I eat there quite often, so I'll offer a few "pro-tips". You'll get a choice of either white Italian bread or olive bread. I... More

My husband and I took our daughter here for dinner while bringing her back to Virginia Tech from a visit home for the weekend. The food was very good and the service excellent. I highly recommend Zeppolis when in Blacksburg and we are likely to return again!

An Italian restaurant with a wine store annex. Food was okay. A little pricey. More attuned to the Professors rather than the students and families. Still some may prefer a little dressier place.

It's hard to find because you can't really see if from the road (behind a gas station). However, it's worth looking for! We went here for lunch but I would say it's more of a dinner place. They didn't have any light dishes. My daughter & I both had pasta dishes and just boxed what we couldn't eat. My husband... More

Went for the first time last night and was happy I went. The food was great! I enjoyed the fact that you could go pick out your own wine from their extensive collection in their wine tasting shop. Their menu has some unique choices and has many of the classics you would expect from an Italian restaurant. I definitely recommend... More
