Best pasta around!

To begin, the service was extremely fantastic. The waiter served us bread freshly made and filled our drinks when we needed them to be filled. The meal was a little expensive, but you pay for the great food. It was an awesome dining experience for my first time at Zio's. Fabulous job!

What a delightful surprise Zio's Italian Kitchen is, located adjacent to the mall in Albuquerque on Coors Boulevard. The portions are large, the tastes are amazing and the prices are reasonable. I have been there for lunch and dinner and both are exceptional. What I like most is the kitchen is right in the dining area, so you see how... More

From beginning to end, this restaurant sees you coming, wants you to be happy you came, and wants you back. It felt like a small vacation, like we went to Europe for a little while. All the seating options were filled with atmosphere and there is plenty of responsive waitstaff. You can watch the kitchen staff to some extent and... More

Once they changed the menu, the food quality declined. Ironically they were trying to be fancy, but Olive Garden is closer to quality Italian than Zios. I used to love this place back in 2004, but the staff are unfriendly and the food sucks. What a bummer.

Met and seated promptly, Waitress was on our table in one minute. She made excellent suggestions. Appetizer (stuffed mushrooms) were the best I have ever eaten. Cesar salad was fresh, very tasty. Wife had matticotti, I had egg plant parmesana, both were perfectly prepared, hot and very large portions. Bill came promptly and were greeted again when we left by... More

We had never heard of Zio's before but it seems to be a chain with several locations in several states. We stumbled across this location by accident near Cottonwood Mall in Albuquerque, and decided to give it a try. The parking lot in front was a bit cramped but there was ample parking in the rear. The interior had the... More

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 also liked the Caprese Salad and the Baked Formaggio... 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.
