We have lived in Omaha 10 years, this has to be the best food we have eaten in many, many years.

The lasagna and all meat pizza are the best in town, we frequent there and never once has it been leas than superb!

Since the ownership change, there has been a fitful transition. Wait staff tries, but does not quite have consistency--no candle, cold bread, but cheerful disposition! Food quality is OK but not a sustaining product for success.
Overall, a shaky current situation.

I love this place. They do need to continue to work on service. It was not busy and they still seemed rushed. At 7pm they were out of all but one special on a Saturday night. The food is incredible though.

We've gone to Zurlos many times and I have yet to be disappointed. Their food is excellent, not too expensive and their service is good. I need to come more ofter as there are so many dishes I want to try!

In spite of the mixed reviews, we gave Zurlo's a try. We were not impressed. The ambiance is probably meant to be contemporary, but it felt sterile and cold, not what I expected for a small Italian restaurant. The food in our party ranged from pretty good pizza to a pork dish that was very overcooked. The bread, usually a highlight in this type of place, was very ordinary, cold and tasteless. It was small slices served in a basket so large it was almost comical. The wine prices are quite steep. The service was outstanding, but not enough for us to give it another try. There are much better places to eat in Omaha.

Oh my... we had some errands to run in West O and finished up with a Living Social at this restaurant. From start to finish, food and service was absolutely fantastic! We both had salads as well as entrees and look forward to coming back :)

The food has been rich, flavorful, and beautifully plated with every one of our visits. My husband thinks theirs is the best chicken parm he's had!

We had cheese bites for appetizer they were fantastic. The bread and garlic butter was so good too. My husband had chicken parm which was dry and had too much cheese on top. I had meat pizza was also dry. I would b willing to try again however...liked the atmosphere.
