Better Than Average Italian Chain Restaurant

Had left our car to have its tires rotated and had only Cottonwood Mall chain restaurants to choose from. We picked Zio’s and were pleasantly surprised. We liked it much better than Olive Garden. Nothing tasted bland. The tomato soup was delish. I even liked the Caesar salad dressing (creamy). We... read more

Solid execution on all dishes and outstanding complimentary bread. Deserts are huge so be prepared to share. I would recommend the Italian Nachos which could actually be shared for a meal in itself.

It's been a while so it was time for our Italian food fix and a trek across the river. 11 ladies met for dinner, most of whom f aught traffic backups to get there. Accidents on Montano, Paseo and Alameda! I'm not kidding! All 3 were blocked for a time due to accidents. I guess it was worth it. The... More

We hadn't eaten at Zios for several years as my husband and I try to support local businesses. However, friends were visiting who wanted to try it. The dining area is large and divided into three rooms with several tables in the bar area. I guess the décor is supposed to represent an Italian hacienda of sorts. It's very pleasant,... More

"We will clean a table for ya", The appetizer was heavily salted, The main dishes were very poor quality ingredients. Tasted like previously frozen pasta, chicken patty, canned sauce and uncooked veggies in a suppose to be a... More

Our Thursday Ladies chose a favorite, Zio's, for dinner last week. We were a large group of 12 so our waiter, Roger, had his hands full. I wasn't in the mood for marinara sauce so ordered a spicy shrimp dish. The spicy Alfredo Sauce was delicious! And the shrimp were plentiful and plump. We had some laughs over the Italian... More

First, they have a generous gluten free menu. The prep time for gluten free is a bit longer but it wasn't too long at all. The portions are large and the food was prepared very well. The seasoning is perfect! The fresh warm bread is an added bonus. We left with plenty of "left overs" for another meal. Our waiter... More
