“Ok Food but Horrible Service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Been to this restaurant several times and gets worse each time. The food is average but unfortunately in an area that has an abundance of good Italian restaurants average won't do. The servers are slow with no personalities. Oh and also the manager or owner that just stands there in his way too tight suit and text's as his customers wait way too long to get served should either act like he cares or stay out of sight. Unless u have no other option then I would skip this place.

“Way to LOUD!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I have previously had lunch here and it was lovely. Decided to celebrate Christmas dinner with two of my best friends for another lovely experience. It was so loud in there with people talking it made me ill. The service was excellent and the food was excellent but you couldnt hear the people sitting at your own table. Tables were back to back in one big room...with no noise buffers at all. Once in a while you would hear the piped in music when there was a lull in people yelling at one another to be heard. Totally not an enjoyable experience. I would not go back. What a shame.

“Sicilian specialties at their best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

It was our first time here and most definitely not our last. This place has it all, food, service and atmosphere. The food was of high quality, fresh and prepared to our liking. Service was very attentive and polite. We found most of the prices to be reasonable and in line with other high end Staten Island restaurants. If you're coming on a weekend night get here early as the place gets packed by 7 pm. A nice plus is the bar where there is plenty of elbow room.

“Excellence with a European flare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have had the pleasure of dining at ZioTotos several times, it is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and more. Food and selections are made there daily including the breads and I can only say we have never been disappointed in any thing we have ordered. Service is excellent, music sometimes too loud but it is our new favorite to dine at and recommend.

“Louddddd”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Went last Saturday night with four couples. Decor is very nice,food was ok.....however the noise was totally ridiculous. We could not have a conversation and could not even hear each other. Not enjoyable at all. If you like the typical Staten Island loud mouths then this is the place for you. Far from romantic and not at all good for a first date. Manager izzy is awesome try's really hard, but you will leave with a headache
