A very welcoming environment!.
Zaffino's is a great Italian cafe in Sherwood. I have eaten there over a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Nori, the owner, has done a wonderful job of creating a welcoming environment for both new and returning patrons. If you eat there more than once, she often remembers you and welcomes you back to her restaurant.
The staff has always been friendly and I have never had a complaint about the service (Sheena is my fav!). If your meals typically include appetizers, dessert and maybe a glass of wine, expect to pay a little more than the Olive Garden, but the food is worth it, and it isn't based on a corporate menu. Nori keeps a great selection of wines on hand to compliment the food as well.
