I go weekly.... That says it all! Give it a try, if your in the Vail or Beaver Creek area my guess if you eat out regularly, or even if you don't.... you will frequent Zino's. Tell your friends!!!

Bread with oil and vinegar was delicious! Ordered muscles as an appetizer. Serving size was huge and delicious. It was muscle madness Tuesday so it was only 7.50 for the muscles. Dinner unfortunately was disappointing. Very bland. I wanted to go into the kitchen and add some salt and garlic. Noodles were dry. Not much sauce. Waitress was attentive, but not spectacular. Ambiance and decor is very nice.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Vail Valley. The food is very good, the service is friendly & professional. Couple that with an excellent patio dining area and it’s a stellar experience. The decision to close their patio, despite their multiple heaters, is disappointing to us. Unfortunately it will now be late Spring before we return to Zino’s (although we will continue to occasionally order take-out!)

Bought expensive wine. $250. It was vinegar. Owner insisted it was fine. Delighted to pay for this once. They lost potential good repeat client forever. Hope they enjoyed that outcome.

What a find in Edwards! Our realtor turned us on to this gem in the River Walk development and so glad we made reservations as the place is, not surprisingly, super busy during these Covid days.

The halibut special I had was just insanely good served over a a lobster risotto. The special dessert we ordered was peach zeppoles served with a caramel sauce. Our server suggested we add a scoop of vanilla bean gelato which was the perfect call. Sorry I forgot her name as she was on-point and super friendly.

Make a reservation and enjoy this great restaurant. Bon apetit!

We’ve been to Zino’s numerous times and this experience will continue to bring us back. We sat outside, pandemic rules well in place. The pappardelle with veal was excellent, the fuiti misto was interesting but we did not much care for the batter, and the halibut special on a bed of risotto with fresh corn was amazing! The halibut was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside — perfectly cooked. The bread service is excellent. The house made burrata with grilled ciabatta was superb. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. A lovely evening!

This is my second time here and honestly the food has been very average both times, especially for the price point. The carbonara was just ok and the chocolate hazelnut dessert was over cooked and dry. There are better options in the valley.

Food was wonderful as was the service. Beautiful restauarant. My only suggestion would be is that they increase the lighting , either by stringing light up outside and/or some sort of lighting at the table. We
Literally couldn’t see what we were eating.
