“Best Italian in town”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

Although the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired, the food and service are excellent here. We prefer Zeppoli's over Sal's any day. The food's better, the service is better, and the staff is generally nicer. They have a superb wine selection, as well as their own wine shop in-restaurant. It's a great place to take a date.

“A favorite for over a decade”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

My husband and I have been going here for at least a decade (or whenever they opened) -- probably a dozen times a year for dinner or lunch, maybe more. Food is not great, and menu rarely varies, but the dishes are well cooked and the prices reasonable. Service varies a lot (student waiters), but it's a dependable neighborhood place for a nice meal. The best part is that the store has a retail wine shop attached, and you can choose a bottle of wine and pay the retail price plus a $2.00 corkage fee (then take wine home if you don't finish the bottle). The wine shop also sponsors tastings a couple of times a month with very good food (enough for a light meal) at a very reasonable price.

“My absolute favorite restaurant in Blacksburg!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Zeppoli's has the best Italian entrees in Blacksburg! I have a definite favorite meal there, but everything I have ever eaten there has been great! I don't typically have wine, but the one time I did it was fun to pick it out and then have them open it for you. Whenever I get to pick a place to go out for a nice dinner, I ALWAYS pick Zeppoli's. When friends or family come to visit, my husband and I take them there!

“Best Italian in Blacksburg”
Reviewed April 13, 2011

They are not the best Italian I have ever had or do they come close but they are the best Italian restaurant in the Blacksburg area. A lot of menu choices, food is fairly inexpensive/reasonable, and they have a wine store there so if you see a wine you want with your dinner you can purchase it at regular value(no upcharge/same competitive prices as in the local area of wine/beer stores) and they will uncork it for your dinner.

“Everything was excellent except the...”
Reviewed April 21, 2010

Everything was excellent except the amount of oil they used for my pasta (it was practically swimming). The house wine was good, the calamari was excellent. Both entrees were huge portions and nicely done. And it was much less expensive than I had assumed.
