The service was exceptional, and the food resembles the classic tastes of Italy. They have a great bar, and the restaurant allows for an interesting concept of wine tasting with a variety of wines from all over Italy. The food portion size is good, and all the flavours of the fresh herbs, good olive oils and home made sauces allowed... More

We wanted to keep it simple for New Year's eve, so we ordered a lasagna for 15 people to take home. Big mistake. It was a watery mass of totally flavorless ricotta with no discernible taste whatsoever. Family and friends ended up filling up on chips and key lime pie. Thanks guys for an "unforgettable" New Year's eve meal.

I expected more based on the other reviews posted but everything was so so. I didn't realize they didn't offer a full bar, my fault which is normally not a problem but I invited two business people who were disappointed. Wine selection was limited and not so sure they were worth the price but until I gain a palette I... More

Full disclosure: I've known the owner/manager, Jon Mattson, for quite a few years as a patron of the different restaurants he's worked at. To say he knows his way around Italian food and wine is an understatement. We've only been to this relatively new restaurant of his a few times, as it's a pretty long trip from our home, but...

This was pretty much horrible. The place has a great, comfortable feel to it when you walk in. Take note: that's the peak moment of the place- when you first walk in. It's downhill from there. Not going to make this long: service was horrible. Just freaking horrible. No detail to the basics. Could not get service. Could not get... More

We were visiting our son and his finance, her family and my sister in Georgia and his fiance made reservations at Zola Italian Bistro. I recently have been placed on a specific food protocol by my doctor, so our son asked me to look at the menu to see if there would be something I could have. As usual nothing... More

If you're looking for a dining experience where you can sit back, relax and enjoy your food, this is the place for you. The food was excellent (definitely made to order/fresh), the service was great, and ambiance was nice. The only thing we noticed was that the tables were set pretty close together, a little to close for us. Although... More

Zola is a great little neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is delicious, plentiful and fairly priced. The wine selection is excellent for a restaurant this size. Service can be spotty but overall we have enjoyed dining there.

We had not been to Zola before. I chose it for my birthday dinner this year because of its menu. I wanted osso bucco for some reason, and many other places that we have eaten before did not offer it. Our waiter was knowledgeable about Italian food and had a great sense of humor. We had outstanding service. The restaurant... More

This place was amazing. Visited last night on night out without the kids. We were greeted and shown to our table by the owner who was around and very involved the whole time we were there. The ambiance/decor if very nice and attractive. You feel like you're in a hip city bistro and not a strip mall in the suburbs.... More
