Zeppo has decent Italian food with plenty of variety, but my favorite is their spaghetti and meatballs. The red sauce is delicious, not too tangy, and the meatballs are generously sized. Atmosphere is nice and patio seating is available in the summer.

Good food. But the service was pretty frustrating to say the least. Bartender, hostess, and servers, (minus our own) were not friendly or willing to help in any way. Water was constantly refilled though, which was a plus.

I think Zeppo is generally viewed as an Italian-style restaurant, but the hidden gem on their menu is their hamburger. Fresh ingredients, the special bun, and bacon that's cooked just-right make all the difference. I challenge you to find a better burger.

We were 4 adults. The service was very good and friendly. The atmosphere was very creative and romantic. I had the Caprese salad and was disappointed because the tomatoes were tasteless as well as the buffollo mozzarella. The other three of us had pasta dishes all of them were pretty tasteless accept for the clam salsicia that was very tasty.... More

This restaurant has the ideal location which apparently means they don't have to work very hard to make the food taste good. While my sister in law liked her gnocchi - my cabbage rolls were bland.... It took awhile for the server to warm up to us- and after the staff failed to deliver our appetizers- she kindly gave my... More

Lunch Trio of 1/2 sandwich, salad and soup is a great deal at the little gem of an italian restaurant. I can't say it is the best place in LO, but it certainly earns my business. They also offer a great happy hour such as gruyere cheeseburger with fries * crispy brussels sprouts with pancetta calamari with garlic aioli. all... More

This place was our favorite go to for date night. We loved the atmosphere and the food was great. Last night we brought friends here to share with them this great place and were sorely disappointed. Firstly we got sat at a very small table for 4 people where we barely had room to lift our arms. The waiter took... More

Discovered this restaurant while shopping on a Sunday. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing. The staff was excellent. The meal was so varied that we plan on going there again.

We hosted a small meeting here and enjoyed our time together. Lovely food, space, and service. I really like the ambiance. Alas, the acoustics are rather poor, so it was challenging to hear each other well. Perhaps it would have been better if we sat in the booths, with the draperies. I think that Zeppo is probably better for a... More

This was my second visit to Zeppo. Went there for lunch with a friend before and enjoyed it, so brought my daughter there today. Unfortunately, we arrived a couple minutes after 2 pm and was told we'd have to order from the dinner menu, no more lunch was being served. We were FLABERGASTED that any restaurant would stop serving lunch... More
