We go to Zini’s often because we know that we will always get a delicious meal at a reasonable price. The waitstaff is excellent-always attentive. We plan to visit again soon!
First date with a beautiful woman on Valentine’s Day . Perfect place to go!! Very pleased with the restaurant
After making a reservation/receiving confirmation of that reservation some days earlier, we arrived at the restaurant on the designated date/at the designated time only to find it closed.
We had a reservation for the evening of New Year's Day, made weeks before. When we arrived, the place was shuttered. They had decided to close and didn't even do the courtesy of calling us or even cancelling the reservation from their end. We've been there many times and enjoy the food.
Good food good service
My favorite Christmas Eve go to restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, the menu and service never disappoints! Wonderful local restaurant!
Excellent service, food and ambiance! Always a great pick.
Always a great meal. The service is terrific. We've been going here for years and will be coming back soon.
Delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
Great food only made better by a great staff!!! Highly recommend
Been to zinis a number of times. Everything was excellant. Had the pepper crusted filet mignon, awesome!
Small hidden gem. Excellent and fresh food.
Zini’s is absolutely wonderful. The ease of making online reservations to walking out the door after our meal was really a pleasure. The food is delicious-appetizer to dessert. Our table of 6 had seafood, chicken, and pork entrees as well as every dessert on the menu. Our waitress, Marley, was fantastic. We stayed 2 1/2 hours and we left completely satisfied. We’ll be back again and again. Thanks!
Our food was delicious! Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. Excellent all around!!!
Zini's wins the eating out trifecta. Welcoming staff, fresh and well prepared food, willingness to make accommodations for each of our requests. Large portions of healthy food & friendliness add to the charm.In Litchfield County, where things sadly can be pretentious, it is wonderful to go to a place who appreciates everyones business, not just those whose 'names' are known. You can see why its been in business so long. They know what matters and take pride in every meal served.
Great dinner, we had a full crew and were seated immediately. They were very busy but everything went off without a hitch. Food was wonderful. Would go back again in a minute
Delicious choices, fast service, amazing stonework, all in all great!!
One of our favorite places. Small, intimate restaurant. Food is always fabulous!
Zini’s is always great. Quiet, cozy and romantic. Highly recommend.
Zini's has a friendly family atmosphere and serves delicious food!
Delicious food in a wonderful ambiance
The food was excellent!!! The place is small but quaint. My only complaint was 'no' salad with dinner :(
I mean, how much does it cost to make a salad and include it with a meal?? Not much.
I went with two friends on a Wednesday evening. We were met at the door and escorted a a very nice table. I am wheelchair bound and the waitress was very accommodating. She moved chairs and adjusted tables so I could be comfortable. Or drink order was taken and delivered promptly followed by our meal order. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Menu was extensive and there were some specials to chose from. I would highly recommend this establishment and plan on returning soon.
Warm friendly atmosphere. Good comfort food on a quiet grey Sunday evening. As with all of Zini’s soups the beef barley soup was delicious and satisfying. Portions are generous. AJ makes a delicious Cosmopolitan and Espresso Martini.
Food was excellent. Service was slow. Took a long time for apps and then another wait for entree. Had to ask for water. Server never asked if anyone wanted more wine or cocktail.
Overall an amazing restaurant for date night! The food is so delicious!!!
Zini’s is our #1 dining spot - everything from the food to the ambiance to the service is top notch
Excellent food at a reasonable prices. Menu was perhaps a bit small but that might be a good thing>It was Good Friday so it wasn't a good day to check out much else. One table of 4 was a bit loud.
uninspired and tired. The space is great and the service was just "ok", but, the food was not worth $119 that we paid for 3 glasses of wine, a NY Strip, Scallops over linguine, a salad, and escarole and beans. The steak was not seasoned at all. The Broccoli that came with the steak literally had nothing on it. It was steamed and that was it. The scallops were under-cooked and the pasta was overcooked... it was pretty frustrating. The best dish was the escarole and beans - but, that was also under seasoned and very tired. we were in the area for a concert in Torrington, and will not be back if we head back up that way.
Great dinner and atmosphere. The food was delicious and fresh! Can’t wait to come back and try something else.
Outstanding appetizers and entrees. Overall a wonderful place to eat.
Bartender /Owner was on her cell phone the entire time. Waitstaff were inexperienced high school kids who were laughing and giggling the whole time. Veal stew was too spicy. Shrimp and pasta were bland. We won’t be back
We just love our place....Zinni’s!!
Always top notch service and sumptuous entrees and appetizers.
We had a wonderful dinner with friends. Couldn't have been better. Great way to start our weekend...
The service and food was exceptional as always. Can’t wait to see what the February menu has to offer
This was our first time at Zini's, but it won't be our last. The staff was very friendly, the food was terrific, and the portions are huge. Also, the bread was awesome. We had our leftovers for lunch the next day and were the envy of everyone in the Mohawk Mountain lodge.
My wife an I frequent Zini's and we are always pleased with the quality of food and service. I enjoy the fish dishes along with the pasta he serves with those dishes.
It’s always a great meal at Zini’s! We’ve been coming here for 10 years and it is consistently good food with generous portions, pretty interiors and great people. Never disappointed!
We were able to get reservations for 2 at 7PM on New year's Eve. We arrived on time and although it was quite crowded and they were running a bit behind we were seated within 25 minutes.
Menu had a wide range of choices and we both choose the Soupa de Pesce, It was excellently prepared and was loaded with mussels, calamari, large sea scallops, large shrimp and a medium lobster tail split in half ( which made it very easy to remove the meat)! This was all over pasted prepared with a white wine sauce! One of the best meals we have had in a long time! We felt it was quite reasonably priced at $35 dollars , especially on New Years Eve! We have been here many times and would definitely recommend it!
It’s always amazing at Zinis! We’ve been here a bunch and haven’t been disappointed. This time, everything was great, but there was a brown gravy on my ribeye and it didn’t mention that on the menu so I didn’t care for that. My husband’s shrimp scampi was very good but extremely spicy.
