Wonderful restaurant, fine wines and food superlatives, meat is a must. The owner is friendly and professional. Recommended for couples and business dinners, I will return here as soon as possible. I recommend Fiorentina and homemade pasta. Keep a place for dessert because there are special.

One can tell that there are a few items of venison or directly produced in local farms. It is definitely a good italian restaurant. Food is simple, good and not too arrogant. Service is done by locals and they know what they are doing. I will come back

I went with my family and friends last week, the manager overcharged all the extras we order. Prices are not clear. Total bill was very expensive and food quality isn't worth it. I won't recomend this place at all.

We arrive an since the beginning owner was very rude. His attitude towards locals was very different. Very small portions and over price. 4 euros cover per person too much for what you receive. Quality of food very bad. They serve frozen corn-on-the-cob not what you will expect for a quality restaurant. Never again. Do not waste your money at... More

My brother and I decided to get away for a few days skiing and El Zoco was situated right next to our Hotel so we thought we would pop in for a meal on our last night and weren't disappointed. We were greeted by the owner and shown to our table where we were met with a delicious selection of... More

The interior is very different. Old collectibles and Weapons. The decor is indeed something else... As for the food then there's nothing to complain about. Good pasta. Nicely grilled vegetables. Tasty bread and good quality cheese. Would recommend It. Good for vegetarian options.

Thank Per N
