“A mix between Olive Garden and Macaroni Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place has great food, wine, and service. It's local so it's quick to get too. Although it is in a Shopping center, when you walk in there is nothing about this restaurant that says Shopping center restaurant to me. Love their service, food is excellent every time.

“Love Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I would have rated this as "excellent" but for the fact that they did not have the family style meal when we visited. There were 4 of us, and with my son along, we likely could have eaten all of it. Big disappointment. So, we ordered individual plates (various) and then my son asked for extra lemons. Well, you would have thought he had asked for the moon or something outrageous. The waiter told him that he could only allow us to have one lemon per glass of tea. My son was very upset and vowed he would never come to Zio's again. Well, we haven't been back yet, but being from the "old school" I always thought the "customer is always right"....think the waiter should have thought about that, because it impacted his tip.

“Italian Comfort!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Zio's of Georgetown, TX is a place that really gets the idea of what the word 'service' means. Delicious food that reminds you of home (IF your Mom happens to be a great Italian cook!), and servers who are well-trained, and attentive to details. If you want a nice night out at a very reasonable price, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and tasty food - this is the place! And did I mention the absolutely divine tomato basil soup?? Ohhhhhh my! This alone is worth a visit!

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Tomato basil soup is terrific. Food is very tasty.

Service is sometimes mediocre. Very dependent upon who is your waiter or waitress.

“Decent Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

The food was decent, Olive Garden is much better and has about the same prices. The staff was friendly and service was good.
