Diner Reviews
  • "We loved our entrees and the salads were outstanding. We found it to be a great place for dinner and conversation."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "We ate for the first time this week at Mio, and were pleasantly surprised to find a red wine we had drunk in northern Italy on a trip with another couple. It was priced reasonably. We enjoyed the food as well. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Our waiter John did a fantastic job. The wine was great as was the ravioli dish and the saltibocca. Good portions and good pricing."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Best restaurant south of seventy fifth street. Go there often and have never been disappointed. When there, ask for Dawana. One of the best servers I've had anywhere."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Our waiter was incredibly slow...table net to us was seated after us and completed their meal before we even rec'd our bread. Food was ok and atmosphere was fine although the tables are really close together so not a lot of privacy."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Great food, service, wine list and ambience! Quite a find!"

    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "OUr evening at Mio was great. The food is always "the best". Interesting and wonderful. Friendly service from everyone..including Chef! Thanks for another delicious dining experience."

  • "We had great service and a wonderful dinner, as usual. We have never been disappointed at Mio's"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We celebrated our fifty fourth marriage anniversary at Mio's and we found the service and food to be excellent. We were greeted by very friendly hosts and got great tips from the restaurants wine expert. Would recommend Mio's for any dining occasion."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our dinner was a delightful experience. Both food and service were excellent. We'll be back."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Wonderful service and all our food was prepared great and was delicious! Very nice wine list too. We will definitely return!!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Outstanding food and exemplary service are the Hallmark at Mios. Chef always comes to table and shakes your hand and is very friendly. Mios is beyond a doubt one of the top three eateries south of the river. Go! Don't miss it. Bill McKed"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This was a first visit and, while a Groupon prompted it, I will definitely return soon for another meal. Our server (can't recall her name) was fantastic - exceedingly helpful and appropriately attentive. Two of us had the chicken saltimbocca, which was very good but the side of roasted vegetables was the biggest hit on the plate. The third in our party had the seafood pasta, which she was lukewarm about - thought it lacked a bit of spice and flavor. We appreciated the affordable wine choices, and our server selected a winner for us among the $30 list. Overall, happy to have a quality Italian restaurant in my neck of the woods."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Food was good - the pasta trio is a very good value. Wine list is not extensive but very adequate. Service was good. Salad was interesting. Probably would not order again, but just for me others would probably find it to their taste."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We enjoyed Mio for the first time on a Monday evening and it was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. Danae provided superb service without being intrusive and the food was quite tasty; I'm picky about my Caesar salad dressing and the chef scored well in that category. Instead of a chef's special each evening, they offer $5 Martini Mondays and other repeating specials which is nice to know for planning purposes. We loved the fact that the dining area is smaller than the nearby chain restaurants, but it did not feel crowded. Sometimes I feel as if I have to scream to carry on a conversation, but the noise level was perfect. Neither of us felt rushed and we will gladly return!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The meal started off with fabulous bruschetta, but that was the highlight. The minestrone lacked flavor and the salad was just ok. The saltimbocca was good, but the vegetable side dishes were over cooked and dry, the pasta dish was also disappointing, just nothing special."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Very good Italian restaurant. We had the stuffed chicken and it was delicious and so tender."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Everything was really good, we had a good waiter that new what we would like, which is nice."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Recently my wife and I hosted another couple at Mio's where we had been frequently and the other couple had never had eaten there. We caught a waiter in training but he did a good job and his trainer filled in a few gaps in his knowledge about changes in the menu. One item that has changed "for spring" is the substitution of a peppercorn cream sauce for a gorgonzola mushroom sauce. Also, the salmon now comes with a warmed version of the tomato bruschetta - and it looked delicious. The person who had it enjoyed it a lot."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Great service, wonderful food, eclectic and well priced wine selection. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "This restaurant continues to be one of the best in Johnson County and is always outstanding on all levels. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "You can't beat the food here! If you take leftovers home, they don't last long. Great service as well. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Dinner was great. My family was out of town and I went alone but chatted with diners at the next table and my server made me feel right at home. Spinach salad was amazing! I probably did not order the very best thing on the menu but it was still great. I think I'll try the lamb chops next time, that seemed to be what "regulars" were having and they looked wonderful."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Good menu and fairly priced. We have been 5-6 times and it is our go-to Italian restaurant"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Can't say enough good things about Mio's. Food was outstanding! Our server was very attentive and very knowledgable. His recommendations were excellent. I'm looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Great food, authentic Italian! Chef and owner comes to the table to see if you enjoy your food. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "My wife and I dined at Mio's for the first time and very much enjoyed the experience. We had a great waiter, David, who advised us on the menu and the wine list and was spot on every time. Plus giving excellent service. Their wines are from Italy and he recommended an Umbrian blend that was tasty. We shared the mussels in tomato basil broth and I had a bowl of a soup with lots of sausage in it. Both choices were very good. We both had a pasta dish for an entrée; hers the seafood and mine the pasta with lamb and beef ragout. Both very good. We have been to Italy a number of times and the menu and wine list really took us there again. Can't wait to go back. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We have been to Mio many times. Each time we have had wonderful service with friendly servers. The chef has come out to check with us and our meals, and the food has been wonderful. We especially love the mussels and their great wine list, but everything has been good thus far. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We love coming to Mio's and enjoy the smaller, personal feel of this restaurant. Both owners/chef usually stop by our table to chat and make sure we have a pleasant experience and good food. Try the lasagna!"
