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

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!!

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.

While Italian isn't my favorite food, this place serves you some great tasting food. Service wasn't the best as we had to keep asking for refills. We left rather full to say the least and passed by the desserts which were meals in themselves - very large.

This was the only restaurant I was able to get into on a Friday night. I was greeted warmly my both the hostess and the wait staff. The menu had a good variety but the meal that I ordered was a bit bland. I took a piece of tiramisu back to the hotel but it was not as good as... More
