Good corporate Italian!

We were seated very quickly, drink order was taken and they gave us crayons to write on the table top! Plenty of good fresh bread and salad, I had the spaghetti and sausage, my wife had the Alfredo, both were very good! Plenty of great food, so we took our desserts home and enjoyed them... read more

I really do not like their red sauce, and i'm lactose intolerant, so white is not an option. it's pretty much typical Italian....but I love the bread and dipping oil!!!

It was first trip here. The food, service and atmosphere were very nice. Our waitress was good. The olive oil and bread were GLORIOUS. The Twin was a good choice as was chicken picatta. All very good. We will go again.

The Pasta is always so good at Zio's and so is the Salad and Bread, but the laugh is always all the laundry hanging from lines in the air!

Great experience. Seated immediately upon arrival. Ordered Strawberry Salad--highly recommend it. Be an on-line Zio's member and get some great offers---this time, buy one, get one entree with two drink purchases. Makes eating out affordable! Only negative: rather drafty, was ready to leave and warm up in the car.

Had some errands to run after the service and headed to Zios for a quiet break. This was exactly what the doctor ordered. Really good tomato bisque for Kim and not do pedestrian spaghetti and meatballs for me. Ask for "Zac"; after two minutes with his very attentive service one will totally understand why to suggestion was made - and... More

I love Zio's. There is a HUGE selection of menu items and I feel you get great value and quantity for the price. The staff is very helpful and respectful. The bread and salad are delicious, too.

We've enjoyed this place before and will be back, but this time it was a comedy of errors. Delay in getting seated though place only half full. Delay in waitress appearing. Delay in getting drinks from lack of bartender. Dirty glass on bar. Wrong drink, promptly fixed. Glitch in kitchen: delay in getting entree. Wrong pasta. Waitress was nice, just... More

It is a toss-up between Zio's and Olive Garden. Zio's is less chain restaurant like and perhaps more authentic Italian. The service sometimes disappears and you can't get water or ice tea refills so I have to stop eating until I have something to drink. Then my food gets cold while waiting for the server to come back so I... More
