We ordered a starter, a salad and two entree` dishes. The starter was fried risotto in mirana sauce. Sauce was not fresh had favor of canned food. Entrees took forever to come, but were almost turning cold... forget about being hot. The best thing on the table was the bread, fresh out of oven, warm, soft, drizzled with good quality... More

Arrived early on a weekday night and didn't have to wait at all! Waiter was highly engaged and helpful! We both ordered from the special menu and it didn't disappoint at all! Angel Hair with shrimp and bacon was excellent. Caesar salad was good as well and well dressed! Small but good wine list with some specials. Going back soon!

My husband and I went to Zolo's for dinner. The restaurant is cozy and service was good. The food was very average. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and said it was ok. He thought the meatballs were on the bland side. I had the shrimp piccata. The shrimp were good, but the sauce was a little too sour... More

The food at Zolo's is amazing! Some of the best Italian food that I have had. The Chicken Marsala is my favorite. The restaurant is pretty small inside, so you may want to call for a reservation. They do take some. Very nice atmosphere and great service.

Being the only full Italian restaurant in Franklin, you would think Zolo's would try harder. A great location, but the establishment fails on every front. My biggest issue is the staff. Very rude and not at all attentive to customers. A close second and third are the food and wine, respectively. Plenty of other dining options on Main Street.

Ate here again tonight & as always, it was a great meal. Have had fettuccine, Eggplant Parmesan, lasagna and the Parmesan Crusted Whitefish; all great dishes! Always the servers are attentive & knowledgeable. And it's quiet! Even when the restaurant is full of people it is possible to hear the conversation as your own table.

Although the food is good, with nice portions, this is a very expensive Italian restaurant. Plan on a menu that doesn't have an item under $20, and side salad's are $7.

I will start by saying our waitress was personable and pleasant. That is the only positive thing I can say out our dining experience. The bread sticks are obviously frozen and brushed with a very weak garlic butter. The caprese salad was awful. Old greens, tasteless mozzarella marbles, and indescernable balsamic drizzle. I ordered the parmesan crusted whitefish for my... More

Nice small intimate Italian restaurant in downtown Franklin. My wife had the Jumbo Shrimp Ravioli special and I had the Tortelli Diablo. Huge portions and friendly staff. And the food was excellent!
