Nice local place. Owner is almost always there and checks on everybody personally. Quiet relaxed atmosphere. Menu is not extensive but I have never anything there that was not good. Best Italian in the North Little Rock area.

Zaffino's is a regular spot on our tour of restaurants so I don't have to cook. Nori and her son Michael make you feel like you are family- I thought we were!!! The welcome is warm, the staff is sensational, the food is fantastic, and the rooms are relaxing. We have our favorites...lasagna, eggplant Parmesan, and would you believe steak.... More

Local owned and operated this small piece of Italy is right here on Kiehl. We have tried almost everything and have yet not liked anything. Great for anytime or special occasions.

Owner visited our table to welcome us. Fresh food, inviting atmosphere. Worth a trip even if out of the way in my view.

Some of our colleagues had mentioned what a wonderful dinner they had at this establishment the previous evening and told us we needed to try it. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The special of the day was shrimp linguine which was absolutely fabulous coupled with a glass of their organic Merlot. Very nice... For dessert, Nori, the owner,... More

We tried the couples combo and enjoyed every bite. The meal started with fresh garlic bread and a nice house salad. We also finished with a cheesecake which had just the right amount of vanilla. The owner was there and she is a breath of fresh air. Our server was very pleasant and efficient. We will definitely go again.

Nori and her son Mike prepare excellent food. Nori is from Venice and the food is more northern and is based on her family's recipes. Definitely not chain restaurant food. Excellent veal and very good eggplant. Cinnamon bread pudding is different take on this dessert. Nori is a warm and welcoming hostess.

This is one of our "go-to" restaurants. We love the food. The service is always good and the owners are very friendly. It's worth going to.

Zaffino's is a local treasure. Over the last several months have eaten here numerous times. This is the real thing! Nori the owner is from Italy & really knows what she is doing. She always comes around greeting people. After only one visit she remembered our names, where we liked to sit and what we had tried. Service is excellent,... More
