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 wants to make sure you eat”), restaurant guests will feel the warm embrace of home in the hospitality of the staff and in the bursting flavors of the Mediterranean-inspired menu. Dazzlingly fresh soups and salads, homemade pastas, mouth-wateringly tantalizing fish 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.

Took 90 minutes for two pasta dishes. Waitress did excellent job of ignoring us most of that time.

I enjoy just about any excuse to eat at Zio. The lunch specials are a wonderful buy, and the bar scene after work is terrific. Best of all if you want a quiet corner their back dining room provides a space for those long catch up with friends dinners. The food is prepared as if your best friend made it, that is if your friend is a talented chef. That’s pretty much the vibe. You are made to feel welcome and satisfied. The food is impressive comfort food . Risotto, eggplant rolatini, lovely small plates and pizzas. Hi-end stews and large plates. Service is old school attentive not intrusive. Always a lovely experience. Solid Italian wine list as well.

Came to NYC from London, Google’s nearby restaurants and very pleased with this find. Staff attentive, not overbearing, food was fantastic. Recommended to friends living in New York who haven’t been yet!

The decoration in Zio is so great! Love the little sofas and dime candle light. Very romantic.
Food is great! My favorite is the salmon pizza. Totally out of my expectation. The entree was a bit heavy in oil but the flavor was great.

This was my second meal at Zio. The first time I was impressed by the comfortable seating and separation of tables which allowed a group of adults to have relaxing and quiet conversation. The large booth is like eating in a living room. The bar is also very comfortable and stocks good high-end booze we are always looking for rye and they had it. This time we had an extremely comfortable meal once again. The food is very good. The scarpariello was delicious as was the papardelle with Lamb ragu. I never order chicken parm in restaurants because I can make an excellent one at home but I was in the mood and theirs was not better than mine. I say go for a romantic meal, first date if you’re over 30 or seeing friends for a good meal and conversation. It’s really a lovely place.

Another Memorable Dining Experience, this time a Saturday night dinner for five. Zio is a reliable "go to" place in NYC, with consistently excellent food and attentive service. Appetizers were great -- arancini, meatballs, sausage and peppers, flatbread ... For the main, I usually enjoy the veal chop, but my son tempted me to try his favorite -- Spaghetti Carbonara. Glad he did!. It was done perfectly, slightly al dente. My wife found the branzino to be very tasty. We finished with a house-made tiramisu, which -- like the check -- was light and sweet. Seriously, Zio is an outstanding value.
