Fries and onion rings were cold. Smash burgers were really good but did not come with bacon as specified on the menu. Forgot about it until after we were finished. The waitress was inattentive and seemed like she really did’t care. Asked for a lemon for my water and she never returned with one, did not return until we were almost finished to see if we needed anything. Really nice busboy who worked really hard brought us lemons and ketchup for the fries. Wish he was the waiter. Had this waitress before and she has a bad attitude, like she’s doing you a favor by waiting on you.

We many times come over to Zaffiro's for a quick kitchen sink salad which we love. The salad was great, the service was superb and we were waited on prompty and our server checked in with us frequently. We would highly recommend Zaffiro's.

We had the zucchini fries and meatball sliders appetizers and they were both exceptional. The pizza we shared after is always good. I love thin crust pizza and Zaffiro's. We were eating dinner before seeing a movie, so it was perfect.

We met another couple for dinner prior to our movie. We were seated immediately, the waiter was outstanding. He was very attentive and always available if we needed something. The food was great and we had plenty of time to just relax before the movie. Everything was served in a timely manner. We look forward to eating at Zaffiro's again in the near future.

We usually go right before watching a movie, and usually the food and drinks are great.

The only negative thing I have is the kitchen sink salad we ordered had too much dressing.
Other than that, the pizza, drinks and service was great.

Mixed emotions about this visit. I love the pizza but do NOT get the pasta unless you go to the original Zaffiro's on Farwell Ave. We always order pizza at the Mequon location so we decided to try something different. The pasta (we had the build your own spaghetti and meat balls and chicken alfredo) was BLAND with absolutely no flavor at all! We spoke to the manager who was nice enough to remove the items off our bill and cover our drink tab which was very cool. Since we didn't eat the pasta, we ended up ordering a sausage and pepperoni pizza and it was good as always! Also, our waitress wasn't too nice but the bartenders are AWESOME everytime we go grab drinks at the bar to take into our movie! I would say this place is not great for a dinner date or the like, however, I will return but only to enjoy pizza with drinks at the bar before a movie.

I gave the ratings because the food was good, but was wrong, but our waitress was outstanding. Unfortunately, it was an off evening for Zaffiro's. The salad I ordered was tasty, but not what I ordered, my husband's salad came with the wrong dressing tossed and it was supposed to be on the side. Another person in our party ordered chicken tenders and they must have forgotten to make them. The chicken tenders came an hour after we were there and we were getting ready to go to our movie.
The thing that was really nice was we were not charged for the wrong orders or the chicken tenders. We never would have asked to have the orders removed from our bill, but our server came back to our table and said we would not be charged. It made us feel much better to know that Zaffiro's realized how frustrated we were and tried to make amends.
We will look forward to eating at Zaffiro's again.

We always like eating at Ziffiro's especially when we have a movie that we're going to. The food is always good and it's a relaxed atmosphere.
What surprised us was that there was a $1 charge to get a refill on chips, but that was okay since our server informed us prior to bringing them. What was really irritating is that my husband asked for more salad dressing, the server brought it, but did not say anything about an extra charge. When we got the bill there was an additional $.50 charge for the extra salad dressing. We only wish the server had the courtesy to tell us, then it's our decision as to whether we want it or not.

Ordered drinks and appetizers when the server first greeted us, and got the beers quickly and ordered our pizza. Next time we saw our server about thirty minutes later, we asked about the app and she frantically went to check on it. Pizza showed up a couple minutes later and then she brought the app out, which had clearly been forgotten about, and still charged us for it. Also, sitting people where there's a busser station touching the table makes for quite the strange dining experience of hands occasionally brushing against you while they grab silverware and napkins...

We decided to dine in before a movie at North Shore which was very convenient for us. We ordered the BIG Z pizza which came with up to 4 sodas, and unlimited garlic bread. We decided we wanted left overs and this was the best fit, and was a great deal! The service was great! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive!

They are gluten free friendly, and have gluten free pasta and pizza, but it took 30 minutes to get our dinners, all because of the gluten free pasta I ordered. It takes 9-12 minutes to cook, so I'm not sure what the hold up was, unless they were out of pots to make it in... We said something to our waiter that the food was taking a long time, in hopes of him seeing what the issue was, and he responded, "I know." and then walked away. Our food came out maybe 5 minutes after that, but we were all shocked that he responded that way. Pasta was good, but I could have made the same thing at home.

The place was very busy, but it seemed to me a few staff just huddling around the host stand chatting. At onetime a guy came out from the kitchen area. With. Straw in his mouth stood around at the bar and went back in the kitchen. Hope he wasn't a cook didn't look to professional who ever he was. Plus don't want someone slobbering over my food. Few staff members hustling other standing around...

I am on a low sodium diet. When I ordered, I informed the waitress that things need to be cooked with little/no salt and the sauce needed to be served on the side. The meal came loaded with salt (especially the string beans). The sauce was over the entree and not served on the side. Not only was the kitchen wrong but the waitress did not look at the meal before she brought it to the table. Unfortunately this was pre-show and there was no time to send the meal back. Talked to the manager who apologized but due to time limitations could not fix this.
