I live in Walton and have visited this restaurant many times, HOWEVER, we dined here friday night, taking my visiting family from other parts of UK, What a disappointment. WHAT HAS HAPPENED, in the couple of months since I visited last. This has always been a family run place, but now there are young, inexperienced staff, not all family or even Italian working here. I ordered calamari and brochette to get us started whilst everyone was choosing. Calamari was sent back it was tough as old boots. brochette was cold. 2nd lot came out and was no better. we were starving as one of my guests had just arrived from LA and others from Devon. The pasta mains were ok, But I ordered salmon and it was the boniest salmon steak I have ever seen(I eat salmon at home 2-3 times a week) it was expensive, and came with nothing but a sauce, no veg/salad etc. you could order separate but that was at extra cost. It was hard to eat as there was so many bones. The mains , unless you eat pasta/pizza are very expensive and then one has to order veg/salad on top. average for a main with veg etc is £22/27 or thereabouts.The waiter even told us the place was not as good as it used to be. I have been eating at Zios for 17 years(Zio Toto as it used to be) A word to the Management, Dont let things spiral out of control otherwise you will be in trouble, word spreads fast. There are many other places to eat. It will be a while before I return, if at all !!! I felt very let down, I had cheese and crackers when I got home !!!!!!
