About Zeppoli Restaurant
Open since 2011, Zeppoli is a small romantic and very intimate 35-seat BYOB restaurant located in Collingswood, NJ. The restaurant serves classic yet very simple, Italian cuisine with a strong focus on Sicilian. Combining New and Old World traditions, guests can choose from homemade/imported pastas as well as grilled or roasted meats; of course, they also serve fish and housemade desserts and Gelati.
The name “Zeppoli” or Zeppole refers to “fried dough.” These fried dough balls can either be savory or sweet. These small Italian doughnuts are either tossed in cinnamon/sugar, rolled with honey, or filled with fresh ricotta.
In the presence of old black and white photos of Sicily and dark wooden walls, guests can relax at Zeppoli.
