    We have been to Mio's on multiple occasions. Being hard of hearing, we requested a booth. It was also a special occasion for meeting an out of town guest. We were seated in the middle table by the front windows. Unfortunately, the large table behind us had a very loud, vocal group; consequently, I heard nothing being said at our table at a get-acquainted dinner. Also, the salmon was good, but ruined for me with the excess garlic with tomato relish on top. Disappointing. We used to love coming.

    A friend recommended Mio's to us, and we're glad we followed her suggestion! It was a little hard to find--we went to their companion pizza place first by mistake, but quickly corrected the error. Great food and service--we'll go back!

    We went on a weeknight (Wine Wednesday!) and had a marvelous time. The bruschetta was amazing - the tomatoes were so fresh! The veal ravioli and lasagna bolognese were just enough different from standard fare as to make them outstanding. The wine list was plentiful, and our server (David) had helpful input. We were glad that we went with his recommendation.

    My husband and I dined at Mio Saturday night. It had been a year since our last experience. Not sure why it took so long to return, but we will go back soon. We enjoyed our evening very much. The salads; tasty and fresh. The lamb chops deliciously seasoned and cooked to the perfect temp. The chicken saltimbocca was moist and so good. Thought we couldn't eat another bite, but the limoncello tiramisu was very special. Not too tart. Just the perfect end to a wonderful Italian meal. Also, our charming waiter served us delightful butter cookies with our espresso. He was very helpful with suggestions so we would not overdue. We shared the creamy fettuccine as an appetizer. YUM!

    Excellent meal. Every aspect was done well; salad, entrée, dessert. Our waitress was terrific. She knew the menu perfectly and was helpful without overbearing. Appreciated that she knew when to come by and did not incessantly ask how the food was. She probably already knew it was outstanding. Limoncello tiramisu was unique and heavenly. Give this play a try for sure.

    Mio's is a gem! A lovely Italian restaurant in a very low key small shopping center. They have an outstanding selection of traditional Italian dishes to choose from. The star of the show is their Lasagna Al Forno! Delicious! Friends also tried the Salmone alla griglia and raved about it. Julian J. Viso is the executive chef and does a fantastic job (he will visit your table). They live by their core principles of providing "Authentic, Fresh and Wholesome" cuisine. We have tried Mio's twice and would highly recommend it. Both our visits were enjoyable experiences. Last Saturday evening the restaurant was full and that might have put our server under a bit of pressure, but the service was very good and generally prompt.

    We were first time diners after reading and hearing many reviews of the restaurant. Overall we enjoyed the busy Weds. night dining experience. Food servings ample and reasonably priced. The $35 bottle of wine was enjoyable but not anything special, but that's what you get in a restaurant for that money. Weds. night offers free appetizers with a bottle of wine, a good deal and good food. My 2 complaints are related to the dining room itself. First the room is nothing special, but typical of what one sees more often in suburban shopping centers. The space faces south, the glare made it impossible to see one's diner partner if you're looking south, as about half the tables did. We plan to return, hopefully with a better table orientation.

    Good food at a reasonable price but the tables are too close together making our dining less than enjoyable. On the right a patron was loudly discussing how disgruntled she was with work and on the other side a diner wanted everyone to know that he was a wine expert he as engaged the waiter in a long, loud conversation.

    We had a great dinner at Mio's on Saturday. What made it outstanding was our waiter Matt! He was very conversant and encouraged us to try things outside our comfort zone. Mio's is a great place for a fairly inexpensive evening of food.

    This was our first visit and it was my husband's birthday. We had been told it was great so sometimes expectations are set too high. It was beyond our expectations. We had a great waiter who was very knowledgable about their wine list. The wine and food were spectacular and we can't wait to go their again for our anniversary.

    Been here many times before. Unfortunately this was not one of the best visits. Slow service, long after being seated the waiter came over and said oh I forgot to give you bread, this was after I had to flag him down. Food was average. A couple seated long after we were finished with their meal and left before we even got our food.

    We started with a bottle of Moretti and then ordered the watercress salad with hearts of palm, tomatoes, and avocado and a cup of minestrone soup. The flavors were fresh and well presented. For our main courses we had the salmon and the linguini with seafood both of which were moderate tasty portions. Warm bread was served with an olive oil dipping sauce. We were too full to order dessert and had enough leftover to bring our daughter a delicious snack.

    First, the unpolished waitress, brought my husband a glass of Chianti--or so she thought. Clue to waitress--Chianti is RED, not white. Next, my salad, ordered with dressing on the side, came with no dressing. Then, we waited and waited for dinner to arrive. The chef comes over and asks how we're enjoying things. After telling him that we've been waiting a LOOOOONG time for dinner. He tells us that it's Friday night, he's very busy, and we've only been waiting 25 minutes. Then, he says, I'll have your dinners right out. He's true to his word, which means that the dinners were just sitting around waiting to be served. Meals were good, but not memorable. Check was wrong, too! This was our third and last time at Mio.

    First time visit to Mio, the menu had looked promising. Must have had the worst table in the small cramped restaurant at the end of bar. The noise level was too high to easily carry on a conversation. Generally the entre selections by our group of four were enjoyed. The bruschetta was a kind of build our own with a bowl of chopped tomato mix to be spooned on to the bread. The server was attentive, but tended to reach in front and across us to serve or pick up plates and glasses instead of from behind, but it was crowded.

    I really want to like Mio because of several reasons. It's close to my home, the people working there are nice and seem to be trying hard but it's just not good enough to make me want to come back. I've eaten there three times over the past couple of years and each time I leave having liked a few items but having loved nothing. The salads are pretty weak. The appetizers we've tried have been good but the entrees I've had have not been anything special and I've tried something different each time. I love the reasonably priced wines on the wine list but this is not a good enough reason to keep coming back. I can't give them a recommendation.
