“A guilty pleasure”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

When coming through Oklahoma City I will make at least one stop at Zio's. There is nothing new here as far as the menu goes, but they just do it in a really good way. I also like the "chef's bar" where a single person can sit and eat and not worry about taking up a table and ticking off the wait staff. Calzones are good as is the chicken parm. Their sauce has a deep, tomato flavor with plenty of herbs.

“Good Location, Find Carrabas or Olive Garden and Do Yourself a Favor”
Reviewed August 21, 2010

After reading several of the reviews we were looking forward to expereinceing Zio's in Bricktown. We arrived about an hour before closing on a Friday night, so we may have experienced an exhausted staff....The food was just okay....the Italian Salad was a disappointment, the house dressing was not ballanced, the lettuce tasted of chemicals. The pizza was undercooked, and the spaghetti feast lacked any real seasoning.
One disturbing "event" that we saw was a 4 to 5 year old boy (apparently a employees son) going back and forth into ice bin and grabbing ice cubes. Where has his hands been?

“pretty good italian food”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

this place does not have the worlds best italian, but it was pretty good. It is very affordable and had super fast service. its good for a quick lunch. our appetizer was out in a matter of minutes. i would highly recommend the toasted ravioli appetizer. great place to take the family. I would consider this chain to be a step above olive garden. it is also in a very good location right in downtown bricktown on the canal. i was satisfied with my meal at zio's and would recommend it. i will return there next time i'm in town.

“Good food -- Moderately priced..”
Reviewed May 16, 2010

Ate at lunchtime. Restaurant was very busy but we did not have to wait. The wait staff assisted immediately and took our orders. While waiting, we were served great crusty bread with a wonderfully rich dipping sauce. I had the calzone and found it to be excellent. My husband had a spicy pasta dish and he was quite pleased. Penty of food and plenty left to bring home. Not the "average" chain food restaurant -- rates better!
