Sometimes service is great, others not so much. This particular visit we waited for more than 30 mins and we were the only ones there. When other families arrived, their food was brought out before ours. When our food was finally brought out, my fries were cold. Food is good for the price.

Everything our party of 4 ate was great. Pizza, French dip, bbq pork sandwich, and turkey on a hogie roll. Great food, good price.

Honestly, they should be ashamed to even try to proclaim to be for the LOCALS!!! I was born and raised here and it is not a local restaurant that I will ever patronize again. I ordered a few times about two years ago and stopped because the food, Stromboli particularly was horrible - no fill, all dough and the dough... More

We waited 10 minutes after sitting down just to get a drink order. The food was like 2 week old reheated leftovers from the fridge I mean it was nasty, bland and old I wouldn't feed it to my dog. The pizza was no good either very little sauce and skimpy on the cheese the crust was burnt. Very disappointing... More

This place used to serve a pretty good Greek salad, but alas, times have changed. I haven't tried the pizza recently, so I can't really say if everything has gone downhill. The salad was slightly rusted with the crumbled feta rather than the nice cubes they used to serve. The calamari was over breaded and flavorless. Our server was attentive,... More

When we first entered Zino's cafe, the first thing I noticed was the filthy smell in the air. I sure wish I had just left then. Our waitress was very unfriendly and the entire place gave off an unclean, dirty aurora. Very rough crowd, definitely not a family place. Food was okay besides beef briscuit being smothered in bbq sauce.... More

Stopped in for dinner with my kids on the way home from a school function. My server was very polite and eager to please. We all had burgers and they were excellent. Cooked exactly the way we asked. There is a lot more on the menu than just burgers, though, and I can't wait to try it all. It's good... More

The menu is huge, but they should specialize in a few things and work on the recipes. Also, the service is very hit or miss.

We were in town for the week and had a restaurant.com certificate for this place and decided to try it out. Ordered Appetizers which came out properly. Food came out about the time we were done with the appetizers. Food was pretty good and hot, not too many off name Italian places get it right but this place is really... More

My family and I eat at Zinos every week. At least once for dinner and every Saturday morning for breakfast. Best breakfast and best deal in Chesapeake. We will continue to go back for the great food and service.
