  • "We have been here several times and each time was with a party of 12 or more. Food is exceptional and staff are friendly and accomodating. Someone in our party was on a special diet and the waitress was very helpful. Chef Enzo presented our food himself which impressed everyone! He also stopped back to ensure everyone was enjoying their meal. Prices are very reasonable. Pasta is all homemade. Lasagna Enzo, Braised pork, and Chicken Gilda are our top picks Support our local chefs and give Zurlo's a try. You will not be disappointed!"

  • "We've had great food at Zurlo's in the past, but our last time there was disappointing. Sat at the bar for about 15 minutes trying to get the attention of the bartender. No luck. Cancelled our dinner reservation and went elsewhere. We'll try Zurlo's again, but definitely not on a Friday night."

    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Enzo has done an amazing job. My fiance and I have eaten here many times and it's one of our favorite places in Omaha. The produce from the patio garden is used in the food and the fresh flavors are amazing! Definitely check it out!!!"

  • "Food is always excellent. Music on Thursday evenings is a treat."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The food was pretty good. The experience as a whole was just average, nothing special. There are some good dishes, I just think maybe they could work on improving ambiance and service, both just OK."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We love Zurlo's. Food was excellent! Nice atmosphere. A true dining experience without the formality!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The difference between the food and the service was extreme. I was very dissatisfied with the mistakes and how the waitress had and nonchalant attitude about them."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "My husband, friends, and I had a great meal last Friday on Valentine's Day. The food and wine was great, service was outstanding, and atmosphere was exceptional. Thank you."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Good food. I usually have the veal parm and it has been consistently very good. Nice size and a real veal cutlet, not some formed patty. Try the Crustini appetizer, it is outstanding! Prices are reasonable, service is friendly and prompt. Well stocked bar. Casual upscale atmosphere. Also a place that truly understands the idea of a reservation. We arrived on time for our reservation on Valentines Day evening and our table was ready and we sat down with no wait. That was great since it was such a busy night. So often we show up for a reservation and still have to wait a half hour or more for our table."

  • "Best ribeye steak in Omaha. Can't wait to go back."

  • "The best food dining out in a long time! And I love food!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Our evening was very nice, loved the happy hour before we went to the restaurant for our meal!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Even though the food was really good, the service, with no fault to the waitress, was not the best. The bar seemed really backed up, which for a restaurant, is not a good thing. People will wait for their food, but not their drinks. Even after the food came to our table, and we ordered a second drink, we had to wait again. Our waitress was apologetic, and I felt badly for her, but the owners should really make sure their bar is covered."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. We had Rachel as our server. She was absolutely fantastic. The food was simply outstanding! We started with shrimp scampi bruschetta. My date had the Porcini Mushroom Gnocchi. It was superb. I had the jumbo sea scallops. Cooked perfectly and presented wonderfully. Loved the fennel sauce too. For dessert we had a Cannoli and Tiramisu. Both were fantastic. My only negative is that the ambiance of the dining room is too casual. I know there isn't a lot of room, but I would recommend you ask an interior decorator to come in and make some suggestions on how you could make the dining room a bit more intimate, private... Because the food is extraordinary..."

  • "We so enjoy Zurlo's every time we dine there. The food is fabulous as well as the atmosphere. We have recommended Zurlo's to many of our friends. We especially enjoy Thursdays when our dinner is accompanied by acoustic music. It is is definitely one if Omaha's finest!"

  • "Our table was directly below a vent, and we were very cold. When another table became available our waitress moved us. Our food was a bit salty."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Our first experience at Zurlo's was fantastic. The Gouda appetizer was one of the best I've had. He had the cheese ravioli (with cheese sauce) and we agreed that it was breaded a bit heavily. I Had the chicken guidra (sp?) it was heavenly, I couldn't have been more pleased. Although, their portions are huge; probably twice than what is necessary. Our service was amazing, and very attentive server. We'll definitely be back."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "I went there with my mother and a work colleague, the food was awesome, well presented and very tasty. A bit salty for my taste, but we eat with very little salt at home. They were very accommodating in arranging same dish without salt at no charge. Very accommodating. Modern décor, upscale continental dining. Will definitely go back again ! Highly recommend it !"

  • "We had a delicious dinner at zurlos on New Years Eve. It was packed and loud, but thats expected on NYE. Open table booked our reservation at the bar, and although that was fine with us, i was happy that Zuros called us in advance to confirm that was ok."

  • "We had a group of 9 that I made reservations online for and all went great except when we got there our group was all gathered in the front area by the bar and did NOT get greeted. I stood at the Hostess stand for several minutes until someone noticed me. After we were seated (which the table was ready) we had great service!"

  • "Very modern and trendy Italian restaurant and bar. Great location and they have an outside eating area which looks nice. I've had the veal both times I've been there the piccata and the Marsala, both were excellent and I would recommend to anyone. My Grip is that it's too expensive, after all we are talking about a normal sized portioned pasta dish. I could understand if it were an oversized portion or something. Overall this place is great"
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "I have never had anything at Zurlo's that wasn't absolutely amazing. I have found a favorite, however. I keep thinking I will try something new next time, but the Chicken Gilda is so good I can't not order it."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "We had a fun evening!! I wish I remembered our waiter's name for he was very helpful in suggesting what Martina's we could try. AND, waiting on 8 gals to figure out what they want CAN BE TRYING. Great night!"

  • ".Food was fair but overpriced. Atmosphere is nice but very dark. Half of the lighting was out."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food was very good and proportions ample..you can definitely share apps, salads and desserts. Of course if you order everything, like we did, you definitely want to share entrees too. We had 2 between 3 people. The only hiccup was that we had to ask for bread..she forgot but otherwise attentive. The ambience is modern and clean and I hear they have a great happy hour. Definitely worth going."
