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

While I appreciate the great service we received from our waitress, this restaurant fits squarely into the average category. First things first, the entire restaurant is decorated with horse paintings. Like, 30 horse paintings. Our food was mediocre at best; under-cooked pasta that was severely lacking in goodies (i.e. bacon) but plentiful in previously frozen peas and too-heavy sauce. Cheesy... More

Zeppoli's used to be my favorite italian restaurant in town. Great dishes, always loved (and still do) the shrimp cappelinni. For one reason or another I hadn't been back in a couple years. I was disappointed that the place had aged a bit. And this might seem terribly petty, but there were plastic table cloths on the tables. When you... More

If you are Italian, you know there is more to our cooking than spaghetti and meatballs or chicken alfredo. I am always disappointed whenIi go to an Italian restaurant and the comfort food that Nonna made is not on the menu. Even more heartbreaking is to find no cannoli on the dessert menu. I have to say Zepolli's menu had... More

It has been about 4 years since my last visit. They have gone downhill in quality. Service was simply mediocre. I ordered their standart Taste of Italy. The linguine was excellent, as was the meatball. The chicken parmesan was burnt on the outside to the point that about 1/3 of it was inedible, the rest of simply overcooked. The remainder... More

Love this place. Causal atmosphere delivering an incredible menu. Had the Greek Shrimp. Love the mix of veggies and garlic wine sauce. Husband had Scallop formaggio. Oh my what a wonderful sauce. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Prices fair. Highly recommend.

I have been living in Blacksburg the past few years and feel like my experience at Zeppoli's isn't the same as it used to be. The meatballs, ravioli, and lasagna are still excellent and I highly recommend them. However, the past few times I have ordered the spaghetti here it was so overcooked that it was almost mush. I have... More

Two of us stopped for Thursday dinner at 6:30PM and found the restaurant almost empty; by the time we ordered our dinner almost all of the tables in the main dining area were full. The fresh and full flavored food is the reason why. First we chowed down on a loaf of their fresh baked warm olive bread; actually we... More
