The kids liked their pizza. We had calzone (enormous), pas5a and pork tenderloin. All of the entries were great. Service was excellent. The only problem is finding the place. It's behind a bar, next to a flower shop, well back from the street.

We had a very nice Hawaiian style pizza without cheese. The service was nice. If you like sauce, you should ask for extra. They didn't put much sauce on the pizza, but they covered it with ham and pineapples.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Reno, Nevada. The good was outstanding and locally owned. I would definitely stop here again.

We went here for dinner 2 adults and 2 children. It was very busy, the decor is dated and could do with an update, new carpets etc. Menu is extensive and food is very good but the service is slow and poor. Waitress literally threw food at us, my son spilt some water, no offer to wipe it up. She... More

Zano's came recommended, but we had never experienced the restaurant despite years of ski weeks and ends in Tahoe. After tonight we have a go-to restaurant! For two families we tried four different pizzas, four sides, and two salads. Couldn't believe how fast it was ready for pickup. The food was all very hot when we picked it up and... More

Wow. A little shocked that a place in Truckee can survive serving this slop with such a surly attitude. While I understand that tourists can get tiresome in such a locale, they still represent a significant portion of the local economy and don't deserve to be treated with such disdain and rudeness. The pie that was ordered came with the... More

This is our go to place when we want takeout pizza in Truckee. All varieties are excellent and their deep dish is the best we have had this side of Chicago. We have dined in as well. Very good food and service. Back rooms for large groups. Can get very busy on holiday weekends; remember this is a resort area.... More

Ordered a few different take out items recently, salad pizza and pasta. Order was prepared quickly and the food was great. Had not been here in years and was not disappointed.

Food was mediocre, Service was terrible. We were part of a group. The waitress served the folks at the aisle end of the table and ignored the four of us at the other end of the table. Kept bringing salad to the aisle end, we never did get any. Beer was warm by the time she got around to serving... More
