The interior of the restaurant is clean and beautifully decorated. It's very upscale, the kind of place I would take a date if I wanted to impress her. So I was very surprised to discover this is one of the most affordable places I've eaten at in Springfield! The food was great! We had spaghetti and meatballs and a pepperoni... More

My husband and I enjoyed having dinner on Valentine's Day at Zio's. They were very very busy, but we were still seated within 15 minutes. Zio's was featuring a special .... two salads, a choice of two entrees, and a wonderful dessert to share for only $19.95! Everything was served quickly, and we took home half our entrees for another... More

This a a typical chain Italian restaurant. Designed to make you feel like you are dinning outside in an Italian Villa. . Premade pastas, reheated when you order them. . NOT TYPICAL: The oil on your table is not Olive Oil, it's CANOLA! Why?

The server, Adele, was excellent. I had the Thai Chicken. Wouldn't advise it! It is super, super spicy hot!!! It was good, but could only eat a small portion. They serve salad now and it is a generous portion. The waitress was very good. The cleanliness was great! It was a very pleasant dining experience. My son and I dined... More

Great Italian food and prompt service. During peak times you may have a wait to get seated, but it is worth the wait! The happy diners and open floor plan make for a noisy environment, so don't plan for intimate conversations.

We went to Zio's for dinner because it was a nasty night and we could walk from our hotel. I was rather surprised when the door handle came off in my hands. When I gave it to the hostess, she indicated that it happens all of the time. The restaurant was busy and we did not have reservations, but we... More

I used to live in Springfield and occasionally went to zios. I always enjoyed it but had not been there in years. We stopped in for lunch in recent holiday travels and I was blown away at the quality of service and food. I can't say enough about the restaurant. My kids don't even like Italian very much and we're... More

We went to Zio's because the restaurant was next to the hotel. We were so glad we did. The food is out of this world. They also have plenty of drinks to choose from. The decorum is very Mediterranean. The service is fast and friendly. I would go back there in a heartbeat.

Excellent service! The bread was hot out of the oven. Very nice size portion of food. This was my first time there and I plan to return. I did not have my child with allergies with me and I did not see anything on the menu that is friendly for someone with gluten allergies so next I would need to... More
