We decided to get a "take out" dinner and eat in our room with reasonably priced wine (purchased at the nearby CVS store) and the beautiful view from a high floor at the Marriott Marquis.

We decided on Azio, conveniently located quite close to all the downtown hotels, and thought we would pick up something relatively light.

We phoned our order in and were told the food would be ready in 10-15 minutes, and it was ready as promised. We got there in about 15 minutes, and it was all there waiting. Two large bags and a pizza box. A lot of food!

Here's the verdict.

Caesar salads. Very reasonably priced, and large. The lettuce was fresh and crisp. Parmesan cheese sprinkled on it, and a reasonable caesar dressing. But no sign of anchovies or garlic, which meant it provided a good serving of greens but wouldn't get a rave. Mark in in these "Okay taste and large serving" category.

Antipasto plate. This was outstanding and gets our strong recommendation. A variety of items made it a pleasure. And it was large, again as advertised. The antipasto and salads would probably have been sufficient as a light meal.

Pizza. We added a small pizza, not knowing what the serving sizes would be like. This was a disappointment. It was plenty big, probably 12". It was thin crust, as advertised, but seemed like it had only been partially warmed and never got crisp. "Soggy" is a term I might use. It tasted fine, but that wasn't enough. We picked up our food about 15 minutes after ordering, so it shouldn't have been sitting around very long.

Bread and olive oil. The meal came with a large serving of sliced bread and olive oil for dipping. This was also very good.

So our experience was mixed.

The meal was reasonably priced, some we rated very highly, other parts not so much.

If we were staying longer, I would probably go back and try their pasta. That's to signal that Azio showed enough signs of life that it deserves another chance.

Next time we're in Atlanta, we'll likely give it another try.

I was dining out with people who have lived in Atlanta for years and when I first went in I was surprised that we were not going to a nicer spot.
After they brought the food I was not disappointed that they had chosen this spot. The salads were very tasty and the presentation was good. Then it just got better from there. Everything I tasted was delicious and the service was very good as well; attentive without being overbearing. Would be happy to go back there on my next trip.

I had the pleasure of having dinner here during a business trip to Atlanta. I had the special which was linguini and shrimp in a blue cheese wine sauce. It was fantastic. If you get a chance, go you will not be disappointed.

I found this restaurant online as it was conveniently located near The Ritz downtown where our friend was staying. We walked from the Ritz to the restauraunt. The food was great and the srvice was exceptional. The veal picatta was excellent and the sorbet for dessert was wonderful. The restaurant also offers complimentary parking directly across the street. There are several nice rooms with great atmosphere. Make sure that you request one of those two rooms when making your reservation. We will definitely be back again when we are in the area.
