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.

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

I go to Zios because I love Italian and it is always excellent. They also have a knack for hiring exceptional wait staff. Our waiter was Josh. He provided us with exceptional service as well as entertainment! He was an absolute delight. Love, love love him!!

Came fairly early and had little wait....server was very prompt and courteous! Food was great and they were very accommodating to my special needs son who has to have his food prepared a certain way so he can swallow it. They were great and made it possible for us to have a true family dining experience. Will definitely come back... More

Lunch specials are an excellent deal with an entree' and salad included. My friend's pasta dish and my manicotti were excellent as were the generous Caesar salads. We shared the Italian wedding cake, and it was huge---could have fed a family of four! We each took some home. The restaurant can be noisy, but the food is delicious.
