    I wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday with our kids and see a movie afterwards. This was very convenient and the the meal was perfect. We had pizza and it had the thin crust, which we love. The waitress was very attentive and helped us celebrate my husband's birthday. We really had an enjoyable time in the restaurant.

    We have a great first experience at our first visit, but hit a few bumps second time around. Very early dinner on a Saturday and yet they ran out of a key menu item. Vegetable with the alternate entree was not even fit to eat. Description of sides with an entree apparently so misleading that we were not the only ones who had asked about it after receiving the meal. All in all a somewhat disappoint return trip, but we're still likely to give this one another go because they hit it out of the park on our first visit.

    Zaffiro’s in Mequon has excellent pizza and I LOVE the kitchen sink salad, but the prices are pretty high for what you get. We only go to the movies 1-2 times per year and treat ourselves to a pizza and salad beforehand. If it wasn’t connected to the theater, I don’t think we’d go there anymore.

    We didn't add the show, but some great packages are available. But even without a show, this is a worthwhile stop! Great menu, good prices and the service was spot on. There's even some reserved parking close to the restaurant for those not also taking in a show. Definitely one we'll visit again!

    For those who love thin crust pizza, Zaffiro's offers the kind (crispy crust, zesty sauce, delicious, lots of fresh toppings) that is harder and harder to find nowadays. The biggest downside is the service -- it seems to vary depending on how crowded they are. Try to avoid times when lots of movies are letting out (even if OpenTable says a table is available at your requested time, you may end up waiting). Also the place can get a little bit loud. But for this pizza it's worth it!

    The waitress was good, but the kitchen left things out of our salad that were suppose to be included-the waitress offered to bring them on the side, but we were in a hurry. Also thought the "personal pizza" a small version was overpriced @ $8.95

    New menu, same pizza. We ordered a pizza from the regular menu and one from the kids menu for my daughter and a meatball torpedo with side salad. The pizza from the regular menu was good, what we typically expect from Zaffiros ultra thin crust style, but the pizza from the kids menu was awful, burnt crust, no sauce dry as a bone. The Italian white balsamic dressing that came with the side salad had a very unappealing consistency and taste. On the plus side when we arrived after the movie the restaurant was packed with many people waiting in line. Since we had our reservation we were seated immediately. Thanks for holding our table.

    We started out by driving to the restaurant to make reservations for our party of 7.

Everything went well at Zaffiro's and the hostess and waitress were excellent.

    I can't say the food was great, but it was pretty good. Nice selection, speciality is thin crust pizza. And I mean thin. Thats fine with me, but it was jus so so. Crust was thin and crispy as advertises, but sauce has no flavor, and cheese equally tasteless. We also had a couple appetizers, the spicy pasta and loaded mac and cheese. Everything was good. Like good bar food. Which is fine, but I expected a more authentic italian taste. But considering its in a movie theater, it was more than adequate. I should add the service was outstanding. From the hostess, to the bartender, and to our waitress Claud, everyone was friendly and seemd well trained!

    we arrived for a 5:45 pm reservation, ordered our food immediately: appetizer and two chicken wraps. Out appetizer didn't come out until 45 minutes later and we asked for our wraps to go because we were going to see a movie at 6:40. The waitress was very apologetic. We have eaten at this restaurant many times and never had any problems with service or food. I hope this was just a one time incident.

    Arrived on Saturday night for a 7:00 reservation for 2 made through Open Table. Seated promptly. Ordered immediately--when the waiter took the drink order--because we didn't want to be rushed against an 8:00 movie. Order (a small plate appetizer, an individual salad, and a large pizza) was in by 7:05. Salad arrived around 7:20; appetizer and pizza arrived together at 7:40. Waiter apologized for the delay and, as compensation, offered two movie passes (of the Sunday-Thursday only variety, which are no good for any "pass listed suspended" show). Wolfed our food, paid, left the worthless passes on the table. Food was nothing special; service was deplorable.

    A nice option for dining before/after a movie. The pizza was very good - nice thin crust, not greasy. Appetizers are not very good. There are numerous parking spots that are reserved for Zaffiros diners, however, movie-goers obviously took the spots without dining there because the restaurant was about 1/4 full when we went. If I wasn't planning on going to a movie and the parking lot was as full as it was, I would not choose to eat there if I had to park as far away as we did.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 10/13/2012
    Generally Zaffiro's in Mequon is not so bad. This past visit, they could not get a simple salad out before the main meal. When the meal came out, they promised the salad would be coming soon too (even though having salad after a meal is not preferred). But, the salad never came out and we finally had to cancel it. Not a big deal...but not the sign of a good restaurant. As long as I am complaining, it would be great to have Zaffiro's go back to larger red wine glasses that are more appropriate for enjoying red wine. The very small glasses they are now using suggest that Zaffiro's is preferring to cheapen the overall dining experience.
