    Had a wonderful meal. Everything we tried was well executed and finished. Relatively small and somewhat noisy but the food was worth it. Good but not outstanding waitress but bartender was outstanding. Overall a very good experience.

    We arrived a little ahead of time and were seated right away.The server was extremely knowledgeable brought a focaccia bread with an olive oil infused with sundries tomato . What a great combination.I started with the mussels in a tomato garlic sauce which was very good.My friend started with a salad which was fresh ,not refrigerated .My entre was linguine Peacatore,plenty of shrimp,scallop's and mussels just fabulous.My friend had a chicken dish also very good.Let me say this ,this restaurant is not your typical Itialian restaurant of heavy food.If your looking for really good food,go here.A compliment to the server who was as friendly as well as knowledgeable.The only negative was that the owner stood around the bar and chatted with only the people he knew.If he's going to be at the front of the hous,he should visit all the tables as the place is fairly small.

    Our experience at both MIO restaurants has always been exceptional. The menu is always exciting whether starters, soups, salads, entrees or specials. The staff gives attentive service and are always cheerful. Food is served promptly and the dishes are presented with a tasteful display. The food is hot an tasty. Desserts are always wonderful. We especially love the bread and special oil mixture for dipping. It is unlike what we have had at any other restaurant. We have been to MIOs often enough that we have tried almost everything on the menu and so it makes it more difficult to pick from our favorites for what meal we want on this visit. We are both very fond of having the chef visit the dining room and visit with the guests. Thanks

    My husband and I just discovered Mio's this summer. We have been back multiple times. We consider it the best Italian restaurant in the Greater Kansas City restaurant. The food and service is excellent and the ambiance reminds us of a San Francisco or New York restaurant. Highly recommend it.

    We went on a Sunday night and it was busy. We had to wait a little for our table to open up and owner was awesome and gave us each a free glass of wine and ended up giving us the rest of the bottle. Definitely appreciated and the food was great and times were quick, service was also very good. We will definitely be back.

    Mio's is an enjoyable & comfortable "go to" restaurant when dining out as a couple or with friends. On this evening our server suggested a new twist with a shrimp & pasta dish and a very nice Italian wine. The sauces and entees at Mio are home made and very good! My husband and I will definitely keep Mio on our go to restaurant list.

    Our server informed us of the chef's spaghetti and meatballs in sugo sauce special, and her description convinced me to get it. I hope it's on the menu more often, because it was outstanding. My wife had the salmon, which was cooked perfectly, though a bit under-seasoned and lacking in a lot of flavor. Last year the chef incorporated pumpkin into the Halloween menu, both in a ravioli and a dessert (cannot recall exactly what it was, but do remember it being one of the best desserts we'd ever had). We had the flourless chocolate cake with raspberries, and it was outstanding. Servers at Mio have always been very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Ours went out of her way to assist with picking wines, and really sold the spag/meatballs.

    ughh, i don't know how i start,,, why people recommend this restaurant, food they serve is not italian at all, or not even restaurant quality food. Menu selection was small, pasta was completely over cooked, they didn't understand al dente? and cheap supermarket bought pasta taste.. and soup was completely salty and blend, main dish I had was beef, cold and over cooked, lasagna had lack of flavor and meat, cheese, not edible, which reminded me poor wedding reception mass cooked food. Best part was complimentary pizza bread, perhaps? server threw food on the table, ughhh,,,,, horrible, horrible, my husband and daughter said rather having my italian food at home is much much better. never never never come back!!!!

    From the time of arrival till we left we were treated like the most important people in the crowded restaurant , and we weren't. It was a very busy night and all customers seemed very pleased, welcomed and taken care of. The staff and proprietor were on top of what was going on at each table. We had guests so we were highly pleased.

    It was loud in there, but the vibe was great, the food good, and the service outstanding. Our server was named Torie, and she was friendly, knowledgable, and attentive but not bothersome. She led us through a wonderful food and wine experience. Loved it. Plus, they serve these divine tiny cookies with coffee. Heavenly.

    From the wine and appetizer and then to the main course, everything was was quite good. Waiter recommended a nice bottle of wine that worked nicely. The mushroom balls were unique and quite tasty. Desert recommendation of the bread pudding was excellent as well. Definitely a place worth trying out.

    We love Mio's and wanted to share it with out-of-town friends. We all had something different off the menu and only one person out of 6 had a less than 5 star experience (Pasta Carbonara). The SuperTuscan wine is to die for and we asked to have it decanted and were accommodated quickly. My husband almost always gets the pork chop and has never been let down. The chicken saltimbocca is great and I always get the Linguine alla pescatore and love taking home a little for lunch :) One of our guests ordered Ragatoni al sugo di agnello e manzo. She raved about it and wants to learn how to make it. Do yourself a favor and treat your sweetie to a great Italian dinner and a bottle of SuperTuscan!

    We tried this place because we had a Groupon - and I'm glad we did. The service here was second to none. (They didn't even treat us poorly because we had a Groupon like many finer plaves do) The menu had some unique finds - not just another spaghetti joint. The Arancini appetizer was awesome, even the kids loved it and they can't stand the thought of eating a mushroom. I will say that if your kids are typical menu eaters, this might not be the place for them as the kids menu is not your run of the mill menu either. My 10 yr old said the said the spaghetti was the best but my 5 year old (who loves spaghetti) wouldn't touch it because it doesn't come with meatballs. We will definitely be going back, but probably not worth the kids

    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.

    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.

    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.
