Very good food; portions very/too large. Pace of service good. (Although our server not really attentive) Ambiance is that of a basic restaurant. Restaurant is also a wine shop. When a bottle is ordered for dinner, it comes from the retail shop; a corkage fee is imposed - just be aware. Have eaten there many times and restaurant is consistently... More

I took four out of town guests there last night and the food was excellent as always. Wait time was not too long, and it was quiet so that we could have good conversation.

My wife and I frequent this restaurant once a year for her birthday since she is an avid Italian food fan. But after some poor service experiences and outdated atmosphere, we will likely make a switch to somewhere else. Their food is good though, so you still may see us from time to time.

It's hard to say what I like best about Zeppoli's - the fresh pasta, the wonderful meal salads, fresh bread, specials, wine flights, rotating art, staff. I often go alone but also take guests.

In town for business. Had a great dinner and it was served quickly and very hot! Get the Greek Shrimp. Very fresh and taste. I hear you can ask for it to be baked! Desserts are not made there except for the cannoli.

I am a seafood lover, so add fresh-made egg fettuccini, and plenty of butter garlic sauce, to large wild-caught gulf shrimp, sea scallops, and mussels, and I'm in heaven. Before, or after, you've been seated, look at all the "retail" priced wine in the wine shop that is part of this restaurant. Ask for (excellent) help, or make your own... More

Atmosphere was cozy and warm. Food was outstanding, service was wonderful and we'll return when we're in the area next.

What's the line from the old poem? "A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou . . "? Well, technically Zeppoli's doesn't serve their wines in jugs, but the sentiment is accurate. Mom & I eat there quite often, so I'll offer a few "pro-tips". You'll get a choice of either white Italian bread or olive bread. I... More

My husband and I took our daughter here for dinner while bringing her back to Virginia Tech from a visit home for the weekend. The food was very good and the service excellent. I highly recommend Zeppolis when in Blacksburg and we are likely to return again!

An Italian restaurant with a wine store annex. Food was okay. A little pricey. More attuned to the Professors rather than the students and families. Still some may prefer a little dressier place.
