The food was outstanding and the service fantastic. Our server (Karen, I believe) was attentive and on the spot. Great dinner...the scallops are to die for.
The setting was amazing! It had a real Italian feel. In honesty, we didn’t understand some of the stuff on the menu, but the staff were great about answering our questions and the food was DELICIOUS! A coworker and I split the pasta bolognese and the crispy chicken. It was plenty for two! Highly recommend! Great food and reasonable prices.
Excellen5 food and service.
Recently stayed at the Portofino Bay Hotel in Universal Studios Fl., Dined at Bice Ristorante.
I thought that Zeppole Coastal Italian at the Gaylord Texan would be equal or better?
Sorry to say I was disappionted. First item, no Italian Charcuterie Board on the menu.
Second, the menu seemed very limited as to selections? Unless the Coastal part means a limited menu? I'm not sure.
I ordered the Pasta Bolognese, nice portion, but on the dry side. Suggest a side of Marinara, maybe?
All four of us were disappointed by the menu. The server was OK. But, my compliments on the special attention to our "special occasion".
Celebrated my birthday with two friends while at a conference. Food was excellent and was served by pleasant, friendly wait staff. Desert was a special treat enjoyed by the three of us.
We liked the restaurant staff and waiter, they were very nice and friendly. The waiter did his best on explaining the food to us. The menu is confusing and the price is a little high. My wife tried the squid noodles with shrimp and did not like it. I tried the Rigatoni and it was above average. The setting to me is business or special occasion. They comp your valet parking too which was awesome.
Good food. Kitchen smelled amazing on the way to the rest rooms.. : )
My fiance and I had a very nice dinner here, as we were celebrating the recent engagement. The entire team was all so sweet and our server (Devin) brought us a beautiful dessert that had a special congratulations card with everyone's signature on it. Really made the night extra special. Food was outstanding as well. Thanks you guys!
Food was ok and service was good.
Great service that went with the Delicious Food! Thank You!
Service was not good. Our side dishes were missing. After 20 minutes the waiter thought someone else brought it out. By this time we had already finished eating.
They were packed up for us to take .
Food was delicious!
Menu was weird just changed. Very few choices
Very good service and food!
We ate here back in 2012 and it was one of the grand experiences we were hoping to repeat this past weekend. needless to say EVERYTHING was just "okay".. we did not even touch the steak and the waiter did not even bother to ask why we did not eat it.. same with the pork belly .. we did enjoy the chicken and the 3 of us basically just shared that.. the coffee tasted like cigarettes literally.. the drinks were terrible , the waiter did not bring us bread until we asked for it .. ON AND ON just terrible
Great ambiance, very good food; however, our turkey slices, which weren't under the heat lamp were cold, and not many people enjoyed the 'Smoked' Prime Rib at all.
Warning: if you have questions upon booking, discuss directly with a Zeppole employee. We questioned if the $75. per person fee, covered Mimosas during the Easter Buffet. After being placed on hold, while a Gaylord Texan customer service rep discussed with restaurant staff directly, we were told the Mimosas were included in the price. When we arrived, we found they weren't included, they were $5. per glass. We're not drinkers, it was a noon reservation, but this was more than just Easter Sunday, it was a special occasion and we wanted to enjoy a drink and walk around following this feast, so it was a deal-breaker for us; the incorrect information. We discussed leaving, but judging the great distance to the parking garage, and finding another venue on Easter Sunday kept us in our seat. It was worth it in the long run. We would return.
It took us 1.5 hours to get our food. We had to chase down the waiter to get our wine bottle delivered both times. We all ordered a pasta and it was a small portion. The waiter said oh yea that’s the first course. Usually people get the second course as well. That would have been valuable information when we ordered.
Great service and the Tuscan Seafood Stew is awesome!
Food was delicious and Demonte was wonderful! We will definitely be back.
Bad food very overpriced
Nice restaurant atmosphere for a resort, super pasta dishes from the Bolognese to the true rigatoni. Solid service so well with the pick from m the various options at the Gaylord Texan.
Service was great and food was good, good choice for dinner when staying at the Gaylord.
Ernesto (our server) was great. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
The food here is always fabulous! Service was good too.
The food and service were excellent...the dessert was amazing. All in all a very nice restaurant and a good place to celebrate a special occasion!
We stayed for a weekend night at the Gaylord and made reservations for the evening at Zeppole. The food was excellent, that atmosphere wasn't as cozy as expected since it was in the open air atrium. Overall we enjoyed the food and time together.
Our date night was amazing. Our hostess worked with me to plan a special night on one of the terraces and was such a delight to meet. She even remembered my first name on the day we arrived for our meal. Our server recommended the Chilean Sea Bass and he is a man who should be trusted...it was knock-your-socks-off good. Hats off to chef and team! We will be back over and over again.
The service and food were great. It was expensive.
Excellent service and food. Chef Zeb made us feel like royalty! His dishes were prepared perfectly and he even gave us a sneak peak of his spring menu.
Super good and very yummy
Most amazing piece of sea bass I have ever had!!
Very small amount of food for the price, but I’m not from Texas. Maybe this is ordinary. The Sea Bass was just OK, the potatoes and carrots were hard to find. Why not serve a generous amount, these sides are very cheap. Please the customer. This is the first part of business 101. My hope is you make some positive changes.
Waiter had no interest in serving us. Never refilled water or bread? My Rigatoni was not eatable. Sticky, gooey..heavy. A person came by to check and saw only a few bites taken and offered another entree...But there is no tortellini, no ravioli, no chicken cacciatore dish choices . No offer to remove charge from ticket. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and were deeply disappointed. Will not return to this Restaurant.
The rigatoni was probably the most delicious thing I've ever had. I even came back the next night to have it again!
This was my second visit and I was very pleased with the overall experience. I am told the restaurant has a new chef, and I was very disappointed to learn that the Osso Buco I raved about on my first visit was no longer on the menu. The server recommended an alternative which was fine and I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation. We will be back and very much hoping that the Osso Buco makes a return. Don’t forget that the restaurant will validate your parking ticket upon request!
Pretty pricey for what you got so can't recommend. Service was inconsistent... at times good; other times lacking.
Tuscan soup was good; yet the small bowl that was only half filled... $10. The Pappardelle Pasta was posted at $28 online... yet I was charged MP of $32... really? TThink this was "special menu during ICE-- extra special for restaurant. Was delicious even though the amount of lobster & shrimp was rather skimpy--- not $32 worth. Guess I shouldn't complain as received something extra-- about an inch of the lobster shell in a long narrow, pointy triangle. Fortunately I noticed it before I swallowed otherwise could have been major trouble.
If money is not object, then this is a good place to go.
Earnesto, our waiter, helped create a memorable evening for our family reunion. Thank you so much for everything! The food, wine and service was well above average!
Can not wait to return!

Party of 11 for dinner on the eve of the Cotton Bowl. The waitress(s) were very accommodating and patient with our exuberant group & multiple tickets. The wine list was great and everything from the grilled salmon entree to beautiful salads, breads and pizzas and pasta dishes ordered were delicious!
I have to say, I had read some reviews prior to going and I decided to make my own decision and glad I did. We absolutely loved it! Spaghetti and meatballs was delicious the flavor was in the meatball to be eat with the pasta and it was amazing. For my husband to say it was the best he’s ever had, says a lot. The kids meals were great. Our waiter was a young man and he was wonderful. Attentive, offered answers to our questions on desserts. We will be back!
