Beyond impressed with Zinos staff and food. We were dining in to celebrate our anniversary. We had personally printed menus commemorating the occasion- which is the cutest, simple thing that put a smile on our face before even sitting down.

We’ve been coming to zinos for years and the food never disappoints. The Brussels sprouts and mussels were our favorite appetizers. The sauce with the Brussels was to die for. The staff was kind and attentive for our entire meal. We felt like they really were on top of everything.

For those looking for an authentic Italian meal in the valley, look no further. Zinos is the spot!

Fantastic all the way around! We were a family of six and between us we probably ordered everything on the menu. We tend to dine family style and share among ourselves -everything was over the top. I appreciated that the pastas could be ordered in half sizes;more opportunity to try other dishes.There was not one dish we did not all agree was well executed. Outstanding value. My personal favorite was the elk carpaccio and the gnocchi. I don’t generally do cocktails but the basil spritzer was a wonderful way to start the evening. The wine list was fairly deep and priced properly. Great job Ya’ll, see you again soon!

A wonderful all around experience that keeps locals and visitors alike always coming back for more! At this time of Covid, spacing, masks and very high ceilings address the issues. Thank you again, Zino.

I have never been disappointed in Zino but this time it was extraordinary. I honestly think that every time I go and every time they outdo themselves. I have very high standards having been in the restaurant business for many years so I brought some of my friends there for her birthday. Once again everything was perfection.

We dine here a week ago and the food was amazing! The cocktail drinks that we ordered are superb too. The only thing is the server didn’t really pay attention to us that well, she didn’t tell us her name and didn’t bring bread to the table. Every time we have a question about the food she’s not too sure what to answer. But overall, it was good.

We went for New Year’s Eve, a prix fixe menu. Each of the three of us ordered something different from each course selection so that we could try a variety. The food was interesting and good at best. Out of the options that we all tried there were only a few choices from all the course options that we tried that we would truly say were excellent. Considering the total bill for the special event was about $700, including a very small alcohol bill, it was extremely disappointing. We won’t return.

We always go out on December 30 to avoid crowds. Especially this year.
The tables were not socially distance.
While we were waiting for our check, a table of 10 was going to be seated across from us.
This would have resulted in 2 people sitting less than 3 feet away.

When we complained on another site, rather than understand our discomfort, they wrote me a full page email disputing my feelings.

I was in retail for many years - what happened to the customer is always (or possibly) May be right?

So glad to dine inside at Zino on Christmas Eve. Terrific service, excellent fresh food and amazing homemade pasta. We started with eggplant fritters and could have eaten a double order. The marinara sauce was a perfect balanced of flavors. Delightful, fresh arugula salad with pistachios was a nice intermezzo before the main courses. My husband had tasty Colorado lamb chops with a spinach risotto and I had the fresh linguine de mare with fresh seafood. My only compliant was our table was on the path to the restrooms, so we had many people passing by. Thankfully, most were wearing their masks, but it's probably the worst table in the restaurant. But with all the struggles around Covid-19 restrictions, I didn't make a fuss. We'll definitely be back.

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!!!
