Very good food well presented by skilled servers. Extensive wine list fairly priced. Energetic noise level. The best tables are in the window area. RGinTally5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experience every time!I do not know of anyone who has not enjoyed eating at Zola! The food is fabulous, the ambiance great, but it is a bit pricey, unless you go for lunch during the week, during which it is very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tasting menu is deliciousWe got the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. It was very delicious. The beef wellington (6th) might have been a little overcooked. But everything else was quite good and the lamb chops (3rd) and asparagus with a fried egg and asparagus soup (5th) were outstanding.
Each of the wine pairings were interesting went quite well with their meals and a delicious ice wine came with dessert.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEver since our daughter becameEver since our daughter became a student at Penn State we have had dinner here at least twice a year. The food is delicious and the service is fine. The service tends to become less focused on you towards the end of your meal. But I recommend Zolas to everyone I know looking for a great restaurant in State College, we have never had anything but an acceptional meal!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining in State College!We dined at Zola's during a recent parent's weekend at Penn State. Wanted special occasion dining and Zola's certainly fit the bill. Service was prompt and friendly. The dining room and particularly the enclosed patio room are elegant and sufficiently roomy. Each dish we tried was outstanding, the only exception being the prosciutto wrapped shrimp appetizer that came with an strong tangy sauce that overwhelmed the dish a bit. We were too full for dessert so I can't comment. Perhaps a little overpriced but overall a fine choice among the somewhat limited State College high end dining options Would definitely return and would highly recommend Zola's to others if they are looking for a great meal in a lovely setting in Stats College!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came on a Monday nightWe came on a Monday night for our Anniversary (and got engaged later that evening). The service was above par and we really appreciated our waiters education and attention to detail. We will continue to go back for special occasions. This was our third time going, and you haven't failed us yet!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest overall in State College.Best overall in State College. Excellent menu choices, outstanding cocktails.
