Zerillos Italian Grill

11653 Countryway Blvd
Westchase, 33626
One of the best meals we have had and the service was excellent. We could not have been treated better by server and staff. We had a party of 8 and it was Mother's Day. We were thrilled with everything. Chicken Portabello with Angel Hair is my favorite. We are locals and always bring out of town guests. Never disappointed. We love this place and am glad that we chose it for Mother's Day.
Zerillos used to be my go-to, family-run Italian restaurant when I lived in the Westchase community in NW Hillsborough county. Unfortunately a different group of people took over the restaurant for a while, and the place went downhill very quickly. I was told that the Zerillo family was back in charge, and so I stopped in for lunch to see if the place was back to it's original old world Italian cuisine recipes and service. Zerillos is located along Countryway Boulevard, just south of the intersection with Race Track Road. You'll find Zerillos in a small strip mall across the street from Five Guys Burgers. Back in the day I would go to Zerillos for a plate of pasta or for one of their nightly grouper specials. The pizza chef made terrific New York-style thin pizzas, and the atmosphere was very nice and subdued. You entered the dining area through the bar area, and some nights that could be a bit of a challenge as the crowds could be four and five deep watching a ball game on the TV's in the bar. Thankfully much of the Zerillos charm is still in place, including the quality of the food, and the excellent servers. I'm dinging them one star for the cost of their meals, as I found things a bit pricey. Lunch for me was soup and salad, and the food was extremely good but the cost was just over $10 which seems steep compared to other soup and salad options in the area. Bill ordered a pizza, and that was almost $20. Totaling that all up.....$30 is a lot for lunch.
Great family restaurant in Westchase with friendly service. Almost always busy, so take out orders can take up to 40 minutes on weekends. Order ahead. The margarita pizza and zerillo stix are both favorites of our family. The tomato sauce is particularly good and portion for price is very reasonable especially for this area. As people from up north i.e. the land of good pizza, this place is definitely worth a try!
