Zeppe’s Italian Bistro
The sumptuous aromas of cheese and rich tomato sauce fill Zeppe’s Pizzeria & Italian Bistro, where Old World Italian specialties and thin-crust pizzas line tables in the elegant dining room or on the sunny outdoor patio. The [bistro menu](http://www.zeppesbistro.com/menus/ serenades the senses with savory medleys of pastas, salads, and seafood plucked from Italy’s creamy alfredo coastlines. Chefs fling golden-baked frisbees into take-out boxes as passing caravans consult the pizzeria menu, which carries a delicious cargo of thin- and stuffed-crust pies, chicken wings, and baked subs. Sauce-soaked penne dishes and cheesy calzones exude a royalty befitting of the restaurant’s columned arches and red drapery, and a covered patio supplies the shrubbery necessary to fashion makeshift crowns of laurel.
