The place has kind of sPltrange set up with bunch of half walls and beat up furnishings. Service was very good and atteIUTntive. The food was not bad, but not great. Our appetizers mussels pomodoro, cheese triangles and Italian meats Flatbread were quite tasty. But the entrees of veal sorrento and scallops formaggio were not bad. Veal was kind of... More

We come here occasionally for special occasion dinners. The entrees are always good. I think the pasta is house-made. The olive bread starter is exceptional - I don't usually like olive bread. And there's a great wine selection!

A group of 6 of us went here searching for some upscale Italian food. We were not disappointed. I don't care for chees so I found a salmon salad which was delicious. The other 5 people all enjoyed pasta fixed with marina or alfredo or artichokes or salmon. Everyone was please. The restaurant was not crowded on a Saturday night... More

We found Zeppoli's via a quick look at the restaurants listed on Google Maps. Wow, what a find! We're very happy we took a chance. The restaurant is located at the back of a small shopping center just off the Virginia Tech campus. We could have walked there from the Inn at Virginia Tech, where we were staying (except we...

Our meal was excellent. Homemade pasta, flavorful salmon, good selection. While the restaurant was not crowded, our waiter could have used some training. He was pleasant but appeared to have no experience as a waiter. I'd go back again for the food and hope this was a new employee and service would be better.

This is a long-standing Italian restaurant in Blacksburg. It is unique in its food and the food is excellent. The atmosphere is good, although the evening our family ate there a large group of students disrupted the entire restaurant. The manager didn't do a thing to quiet them down. The group obviously had little commonsense, making it quite uncomfortable for... More

Food selection was fine- but the bread offering was subpar and not very good at all. Not exactly what you'd expect in an Italian restaurant.

Hey Jonathan, I'm disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy our homemade bread. We try to offer very fresh, warm and tasty bread that will complement the homemade pasta you enjoy for dinner. We are always looking for ways to improve though and we will keep an eye on the consistency and flavor of the bread. Thanks for sharing your thoughts... More

Most people will tell you that it is all about the wine and the selection is first rate. If they're busy, you're going to be browsing the wine anyway but the food is very good and lives up to the high-end reputation. Start with the spinach and artichoke dip. It is the best item on the menu. From there you... More

We stopped in for an impromptu birthday dinner and, we were not disappointed. In fact we were impressed, as this was our 2nd visit since the change in ownership last year or so. We found the atmosphere, the service and particularly the food to be considerably better than our last couple visits. So much so, that we plan to stop... More

Zeppoli's has wine tastings on Wednesdays. They usually include about ten wines and include a great variety of accompanying food, so bring an appetite. The wines are presented and discussed by knowledgeable representatives of wine distributors. It is necessary to call and reserve a place as there is limited seating.
