This is a great place to pick up wraps, grinders, and salads, but my favorite by far is their chicken soup; it always has lots of chicken in it, as well as a delicious broth. I am so happy this spot is located 5 minutes from my home.

great place, but needs more tables. good food, will tell more friends about this place.... some times it full of people and no standing room, I think its more of a take out place.

The food is good, but good for take out, wouldn't really call it a restaurant. They have a few tables and chairs, but they are mostly for the quick lunch bunch. Always try to call ahead so you don't have to wait, average wait time is usually around 10 to 15 minutes and that's if you don't want anything hot.

So, we were fooled by the name. Arrived at 7:45pm on a Saturday night, disappointed by the fact that its more deli than anything else but still undaunted we ordered a few grinders and a pannini. Portions were large and better than average taste but they wanted us out of there and so they could close at 8 pm. By... More

This establishment is primarily a caterer and take-out place. There are three tables and a counter for eat-ins. The place is impeccably clean, decorated with Greco-Italian theme. Their menu was extensive. I ordered Eggplant Parmigiana Grinder (aka Submarine, Hoagie, etc.), Potato Salad, and Pumpkin with Sausage Soup, for two to take home. The lady at the counter was informative, courteous,... More

Folks.... I've got to be honest with you.... Zerios is an ABSOLUTE GEM that happens to be about a mile from my workplace. All I can speak to is their Paninis. First, I had a their Reuben (Pastrami), then I tried their BBQ Pulled Pork, then Southwest Smoked Turkey. With God as my witness... each one has been better than... More

I love Zerios food. While you wait for your order you can enjoy a delicious piece of pizza....awesome! Friendly staff who get to know the regulars on a first name basis. This is a 'hidden gem' in Cromwell.

I wanted a chef salad for lunch. That's exactly what I ordered and I got a salad that was definitely packaged the day before with mostly lettuce. I was very disappointed.
