I stayed down the street from this place and was craving italian. The place was moderated busy and they told me that it had a 25 minute wait. This seemed a little much for 1 person. They then informed me I could eat at the bar and not wait. The bread was fantastic and the food was pretty solid. I... More

It's not fast food Italian and it's not formal Italian food...it's somewhere in the middle...which is GREAT! The desserts are to die for as well.

Sat at the pizza bar in front of the brick ovens. Great food and a great time talking with the cook and wait staff. Very friendly atmosphere and the food was fantastic. Meant to be just a quick lunch, but from the hot bread with olive oil on, I was hooked. Great value for the money.

Had to wait for seating although place was not busy. After being seated there was another wait before staff came to take order. Something wrong with management overseeing customer service. Order placed and service got better. Food was delicious and moderately priced at that!

My daughter recommended Zio's for dinner on a recent visit to San Antonio in mid August. She raved about the food and I really like Italian food so I was waiting to be really swept of my palette. Well, I was really disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone. The food was bland and not even close to traditional... More

It was late when we arrived at Zios 8:30 pm to be exact. My husband & I shared a lasagna plate. When it arrived I could tell it was not piping hot because I did not see any steam coming from it. Our server, Phillip, immediately apologized & shared we seemed like very nice people that deserved better. It was... More

What a disappointment! 3 meals out of 5 were awful. All had Alfredo sauce thick as paste with absolutely no taste. We let our server know and I watched her then go and inform the manager. The manager, Jose, never acknowledged our complaint and even after requesting to speak with him, we left paying for 5 meals, 3 of which... More

We walked here from the comfort suites hotel and found it to be a good value and good food. It is nicely decorated and the food was at a good price. I appreciate the nightly specials.

Food was less than on past visits. Very slow to make it to the table. Two of the four dishes were overcooked. We like Zio's but this visit was not to past standards.

When we want excellent spagetti and meatballs we come here. They have a large menu amd prices are very reasonable. Their bread pudding is best in town. Even their salads are yummy. The bread and olive oil and herbs cannot be better. The ambience is very Italian. Try it once and you are hooked.
