A friend and I decided to try Zavino, and we are really glad we did. Despite this being a very informal restaurant, the food and service are FANTASTIC. We ordered the thin-crust pizza special for that evening (combination of cippolini onions and figs), and it was delicious! Ditto for the small plates that we ordered before the pizza--beet salad with roasted pecans and goat cheese (yum!), eggplant parmesan, and caprese salad (with tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella). We noticed the dishes being served to the diners around us, and they all looked so appealing. My friend and I are planning to return to Zavino soon.
