“A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We were looking for a new restaurant to try and I found this through Trip Advisor and the restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was so fresh and the marinara sauce was to die for. My husband and I shared a lasagna and it was truly amazing. Our son had a "personal kid pizza" but it was the size of a small pizza. It was enormous and for $5.95 it was a steal. And our server was so nice and attentive to all our needs. If you aren't paying attention while driving you will miss this place. Please try this place out you will not be sorry. I look forward to going back.

“It's not only the food that is wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

There are many, many restaurants, but what makes a meal memorable in the entire experience from the time one walk into the place until one leaves. Zerillo's is small and unique for its wonderful dishes and its staff. You are greeted when you walk in by the hostess and the bartender; the waitstaff is outstanding, especially Jim who is so professional that he knows what mood you are in and when and what to suggest or knows when you just want to be left to sip on your drink or savor the food. From the bread on, fresh, warm and covered with sesame seeds, to the veal, chicken and seafood dishes, the food is delicious. I am not a big pizza fan, but here they are superb! The clams oreganata should not be missed as an appetizer; save room for desert, they are very generous! And when you leave, everyone bids you good night with a smile. The prices are reasonable, too. What more can one ask for?

“Neighborhood gem!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have eaten here numerous times. The consistency and quality of the food is second to none. The pizza is one of the best I have ever had. Be sure to check out this neighborhood gem.

“Owner is rude!! Terrible service!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Awful service and terrible attitude from the owner!!! Unacceptable!! They overcharge for cheap wine and they try to compare themselves to Carrabba's!! Really?? I don't think so! Owner is very rude and does not care about business/money walking out his door!! Lost $100 over a $7.00 glass of Zinfandel and an attitude!! Sad!!!!
