Zavino University City
This was only our second time at Zavino and I cannot wait for the third! Consistently delicious. Consistently wonderful staff. Consistently great environment. Highly recommend!
Delicious gluten free options! And we were able to order happy hour specials at the table, not just at the bar. Great place to come with friends for a casual celebration or get-together!
I made a reservation for 6 during Penn parents weekend. I was disappointed to be seated directly in front of the front door. I asked to be moved but there were no other options. If it had been a colder night, this really would have been uncomfortable. We made the best of it.
The atmosphere was nice, noisy but we could hear each other. The food was quite good except for the pizza...a bit soggy in the middle.
I would consider returning in the future.
Great value! Food was absolutely delicious and had something for everyone.
Super good! There is something for everyone on this menu. Their spaghetti squash small plate is my favorite thing on the menu. The Stache pizza and ricotta appetizer are also amazing.
Good pizza, good food. The gelato was a little lacking, but overall a really great experience and a good place to take our Drexel student when we’re in town.
Great find during Drexel move in day! Food was delicious!
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.
Tasty food, at reasonable prices.
Menu offerings are a little different to your typical Italian restaurant, which made it more interesting.
Nice casual restaurant with great service.
Great for a filling up before you go to show or meet friends for drinks.
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.
The food is always good here! The pizzas are so yummy! Nice casual and family oriented upscale bistro!
Great food, fast service, friendly staff, would go back
Very efficient service for business lunch. Good food.
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!
The food is excellent. Always consistent, flavorful, and reasonably sized along with the coat. The service is always excellent as well!!!
