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

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
