Italian
Zio Ristorante offers authentic Italian cuisine in an inviting setting where casual comfort meets dining elegance. Named for the Italian word for uncle (“because when you go to your uncle’s house, he takes good care of you”), restaurant guests will feel the warm embrace of home in the hospitality of the staff and in the bursting flavors of the fabulous menu. Homemade pastas, superbly fresh seafood and meat dishes, a monthly $20 three-course lunch and a Happy Hour menu almost too good to be true highlight the contented, well-fed experience at this popular find at the crossroads of the Flatiron District, Chelsea and Union Square. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available, brunch is served on weekends and there is a truly fantastic private dining room for parties, special events and occasions.

    This was our third visit to Zio, a convenient and very good restaurant in Chelsea (NYC). Food was again perfectly prepared and the wait staff were attentive and excellent. Only two disappointments: they were out of the short rib ravioli entree by our 7:15p reservation, and, to our dismay, we were greeted by a sign at the entrance advising that this neighborhood gem would be closing for good after 12/24. Hopefully, the owners and chefs will open in a new venue.

    We were a group of 8 and everyone had a great meal. We had the gnudi, pasta cabonara, veal and pizza. Everything was delicious. They seated us right away and the service was great! I will definitely go back there.

    I walked into Zio in search of four things: 1. Warmth 2. Great Food 3. Delicious and STRONG drinks 4. Great Vibes. I walked in and I was greeted by the manager who saw the hunger and despair on my face. I had a seat at the bar where the bartender asked me what I felt like drinking and of course I had no clue (typical me). He asked me what were some of my favorite flavors and he made me the best Rum Punch EVER! I was just as confused when deciding what I wanted to eat, so the manager asked me what I was in the mood for and I replied pizza. He suggested an off-the-menu, only insiders get this item if you play your cards right pizza...Soppressata and Mozzarella pizza drizzled with honey. Sign me up! Absolutely delicious!! Let's just say that I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. So much so, I ordered another specially created for me Rum Punch and hung out for a little while. Simply put I'll be back. Just find your way there! If not, you're definitely missing out.

    We found this great restaurant last time we were in NYC and made it our 1st choice on this visit. Celebrating my daughters 16th birthday with her closest friends, the manager and staff made it a very memorable dinner. The food was fantastic, suggestions given to fit the girls palate, and a celebratory Tiramisu on the house. We will e back again.

    I highly recommend Zio! I discovered it first on Instagram and saw a photo of the Gnudi and then OpenTable made it seamless to book a reservation for a nice quiet Sunday dinner. The food was mouthwatering, and the service was spectacular. Josh and the rest of the staff made it a special evening out on the town. We will definitely be back very soon!

    This was my 3rd time at Zio. You can see that the management is present and cares. There was a big group next to us and the waiters were quite occupied. Once we said something the manager was taking our order himself and everything was great! The food is very good and it’s such a pretty restaurant!

    Returned to Zio after hosting a birthday party at the restaurant in the summer. The manager Josh, gave us a very, very warm welcome and came over to our table many times to speak to us. He is a great guy and will make sure you have a good experience when dining in the restaurant. Service was impeccable and food was just as good as it was at our birthday dinner celebration. Restaurant is very nice looking and is large enough to host a group in the main dining room, or if you prefer, they have a separate dining area. I highly recommend the restaurant for lunch, brunch on the weekend, or dinner.
