Decent food, but small

We were in town for the week and had a restaurant.com certificate for this place and decided to try it out. Ordered Appetizers which came out properly. Food came out about the time we were done with the appetizers. Food was pretty good and hot, not too many off name Italian places get it right... read more

This place used to serve a pretty good Greek salad, but alas, times have changed. I haven't tried the pizza recently, so I can't really say if everything has gone downhill. The salad was slightly rusted with the crumbled feta rather than the nice cubes they used to serve. The calamari was over breaded and flavorless. Our server was attentive,... More

When we first entered Zino's cafe, the first thing I noticed was the filthy smell in the air. I sure wish I had just left then. Our waitress was very unfriendly and the entire place gave off an unclean, dirty aurora. Very rough crowd, definitely not a family place. Food was okay besides beef briscuit being smothered in bbq sauce.... More

Stopped in for dinner with my kids on the way home from a school function. My server was very polite and eager to please. We all had burgers and they were excellent. Cooked exactly the way we asked. There is a lot more on the menu than just burgers, though, and I can't wait to try it all. It's good... More

The menu is huge, but they should specialize in a few things and work on the recipes. Also, the service is very hit or miss.

My family and I eat at Zinos every week. At least once for dinner and every Saturday morning for breakfast. Best breakfast and best deal in Chesapeake. We will continue to go back for the great food and service.

This is my family's favorite place to eat! I grew up at zinos and now so have my kids! The pizza is the best around and the service is always great! Sometimes there is a longer wait, but understandably so as they get quite busy. Awesomely priced lunch specials.

Me and my crew went here after working a football game. The service was slow but the staff friendly; the server continually forgot things. The food was less than appealing, I had the baked spaghetti and it was bland and not seasoned. I also had a salad with Italian dressing and the dressing tasted extremely watered down...you gressed it, I... More

Had lunch at Zino’s on Saturday 10/4/14. Table of 4 that arrived at 12:15pm. The restaurant was not busy with maybe 6 other people seated. We ordered 3 sandwiches and one sandwich to go. It took almost an hour to get our food. The to-go sandwich was not ready when we asked for the check at 1:25pm. No one could... More

This is a warm welcoming atmosphere but the expectation of Italian cuisine will not be met! From pizza to Stromboli nothing is authentic nor impressive!
