Took the family there for my Dad's 90th Birthday. Food was great although it's not your typical Italian restaurant. Service was outstanding. Originally scheduled for 10 people, however, other friends showed up. Zavino was able to accommodate and moved us to a different location in the restaurant. Overall was very happy with our visit.

Great service and delicious food made this a pleasant surprise after reading some not-so-favorable reviews on the seating. Not where we were. My.family of four, two adults and.two.teenagers, fit comfortably in a four top booth and didn't feel too close to our neighbors at the next table. We enjoyed the Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad and an Arugula salad, small Eggplant Rotini, three small assorted pizzas and a gnocchi entree. Dessert was fantastic also. I would recommend and return to Zavinos.

On campus restaurants are notoriously lousy. Zavino is on campus but is exceptional both in service and food quality. It is definitely a bit pricey outside of happy hour but every time I've been there, I've had outstanding service.

It was a lovely family lunch. We sat out doors on the patio which is well shaded, and shared salad and pizzas with a group of six.

The food was good, nothing crazy. For the price (not that it was expensive) I wouldn't really recommend it. But the ambiance was great and so was the location. The interior is beautiful and on a nice day, it's very comfortable to sit outside.

Service and food was great. Somehow lost my wedding ring while at the restaurant, staff were helpful and called me after I left to say they found it!
