There is a reason Zio's is listed as top 5 restaurants around battlefield area in Springfield. Depending on the time and day you go, there may be a short wait but worth it. Our server Tanner was outstanding, courteous, and very personable. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a very good experience. The food is amazing!... More

We used a Free Appetizer coupon when you buy two entrees from the Local Sunday paper. Our app was Calamari with Marinara for dipping. I got the Chicken Artichoke Pizza and my wife got the Strawberry Fields Salad. So we saved $9 because we were going to get 2 entrees anyways.

The portions are large so be prepared to take food home! We especially enjoyed the relaxes atmosphere and never felt rushed. Everything was timed perfectly....drinks, salads, main course. Our waiter checked... More

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
