Delicious food, great prices, lovely atmosphere. The bread was to die for! Couldn't think of anything that we didn't like. My daughter said it's her new favorite restaraunt.

Zios has never let us down. The food is amazing and greatly priced. The florentine soup is to die for! Delicious fresh bread with a great dipping oil complementary. We are an hour away from independence, but when we do go there, zios is a must!

Not as good as in the past I usually order the Greek pasta. Small amount of chicken, not a lot of flavor

We visited on Thursday. Our waitress, Bri, had several large tables and a couple of 2 person tables. She hustled. It seemed like she was almost running the whole time we were there. She got everything right, and remembered drink orders and refills. We have visited several times and the food was great as usual. My husband went with his... More

The minute you walk into this place - you can imagine yourself in Italy. Music that involves famous Italian singers and just plain Italian folk music. The food is excellent and they are so good about making adjustments to suit your preference. Two people can have a first class Italian meal for a very reasonable price. They serve fresh bread...

My husband and I stopped for a quick bite before a concert. The food was great the only complaint I would have is they went a little over board on the toppings of our pizza (rare complaint I am sure). the food quality was excellent, the services was fast and very courteous! I'm looking forward to our next trip to... More

I've eaten several times at Zio's, and I can always find something I like. Their pizza is good, and their salads and pastas are tasty. It's not what I would call authentic Italian, but if you don't know the difference, it's a nice place to eat even if it tends to be a little noisy.

The prices were very reasonable and the food was great. Try the italian nachos - they are amazing. The service was also very good and our waitress was always there to refill our drinks or bring more delicious bread. Watch for the "little flames" next to the menu items. It means the food is spicy, and boy was it! It... More
