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.
