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.

I have to consider us Zio “regulars” at this point. You can not go wrong going to Zio’s for a date, special occasion, business meeting, friend’s get-together and/or everyday dining. The servers truly work as a team and are very attentive but not intrusive. The menu has an excellent variety, offers gluten free pasta, the kitchen is very accommodating regarding dietary restrictions (gluten/dairy free) and they always offer a diverse number of specials. The consistency all around, ambiance, energy, food and staff are just some of the reasons we keep going back.

Had a nice meal with friends. Good wine selection, attentive waiters who knew a lot. Nice bread basket placed out before dining. Food was merely adequate: pasta slightly over cooked and sauce underwhelming. Salad, however, was excellent

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.
