“Good Lunch Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I eat lunch at Zeppoli's fairly often and sometimes take out-of-town visitors there. The atmosphere is welcoming, and it is quiet enough for a business discussion or serious conversation. The service is friendly and attentive. I especially enjoy their salads.

“Great Business Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I had lunch at Zeppoli's on 2/25/2014. It was a very good meal at a reasonable price. Our server Cayse went out of the way to accommodate our meal and business meeting. Food was fresh and well prepared.

“Fresh and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

A nice find in a college town, not a typical Italian chain restaurant.
Went there (again) on a recent visit to Blacksburg and had an enjoyable dinner.
Started with a garden salad and a loaf of tasty freshly baked bread. Nice start.
The spinach lasagna was well prepared, fresh and tasty.
My friend has a vegetarian sampler. Also well prepared, fresh and covered with delicious marinara sauce.
Service was excellent. Good selection of beers and drinks.
Great place in Blacksburg.

“ what a wonderful gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

I am a native of Blacksburg Virginia and one of my favorite places I've been in high school has been the Zeppoli's!
Set right in the middle of college town you would never suspect is a wonderful Italian treasure to be right around the corner from the a pharmacy in a KFC. But if you are lucky enough to find it you will not want to ever go anywhere else.
When you walk in you'll get the feel of the small wine shop very homely.
The decor is what looks like paintings what may be local artist selling the artwork beautiful art.
Time to eat!
Wonderful creamy talian tortellini Alfredo as always been my to go dish! The dish has perfectly cooked pasta, warm, decadent, creamy alfredo sauce perfect a taste..no need to add salt or pepper. You will want to take a piece of that fresh delicious bread they give you and mop the rest of the cream at the bottom of the bowl.
For dessert, if they have it get the creme brulee you will not be disappointed. The custard is creamy and delicious and so very warm it will melt in your mouth. When you break that fired sugar crush you will feel like you're breaking into a treasure just for you. When I come home is 500 miles away I always make the track here even if its for a nice glass of wine and a delicious desert. it's great for couples, families, date night, anytime at all. the staff is always friendly and eager to help!
This is one of those gems you hope you never change with time. I highly recommend it.
