Best Chicken Scarp you will ever have.. Gnudi was delicious.. Apps great as well.
Took 90 minutes for two pasta dishes. Waitress did excellent job of ignoring us most of that time.
Wonderful restaurant with delicious food, beautiful ambience and friendly staff, all for a great price. 10/10 will definitely be going back ASAP
Everything was wonderful from time spent at the bar until we left our dinner table and walked out the door!!
Very good food and service. Nice ambiance and noise level providing you sit in the back
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.
Enjoy a nice dinner recently at Zio. The food was fantastic and the service was attentive and sold. Definitely will be back.

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.
The best italian food ever! I hlghly reommend it. Amazing attention.
Everything were great! Food, drinks and service. 10-10
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.
Great ambiance and service. Food came out quick and was delicious. Drinks were spot on, highly recommended!
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.
My wife and I had dinner with a couple who we only see once or twice a year. They asked that we choose the restaurant as my wife needs gluten and dairy free options. Zio's has the best happy hour as it goes until 7:30pm and the entire front of the restaurant happy hour is available, NOT just at the bar. I wanted to sit in the front of the restaurant, near the windows, to take advantage of happy hour drink prices and for dinner as well. Seating the four of us in this area, without one of us having to sit on the corner of the table/banquette was not working. We moved to a table closer to the entrance but it was too breezy. Darren, one of the partners/owners, saved the day. He inserted himself in our predicament, funny guy, and was like no problem and honored the happy hour drink pricing in the back section of the restaurant. Important note, my wife wanted to sit in the back section from the get go. 🙄 Darren had a constant unobtrusive presence, took our drink and food orders and was entertaining as well. Food of course was excellent, as always, and our friends I know will return to Zio's in the future.
We went there for a dinner recently; great atmosphere in the dining room, good food and very helpful and attentive staff. Certainly recommend.
Our group of 8 had a great time at Zio! Excellent Italian standards and easily able to accommodate our gluten-free friend. I had the papardelle with lamb ragu and was VERY happy. Sampled the desserts and they tasted great. Highly recommend for dates or group outings in the Gramercy Park area.
Had looked up this restaurant on Open Table and all of the reviews were great. Lovely ambiance. We were there for lunch the day after Thanksgiving so it was a bit quiet to start. We called friends to join us as the food and service as so great. Enjoyed the flatbread pizzas and buratta starter. They offer wonder price fixed menu too. Will definitely return!
An over abundance of earnest wait staff, but few on the floor taking orders.
Have been going for years and never ceases to please and meet every expectation.
Great spot for a quiet business or friends get together lunch. Service is professional and courteous. Food is average - appetizer of squash soup was as bland as possible. Shaved artichoke and parm salad was tasty while raviolis with tomato sauce was just OK. The special stuffed ravioli was very good. Overall, food is not extraordinary but not bad. Prix fix $20 lunch is rare in NY as is a restaurant that is quiet enough to hold a conversation.
Food was good, service very good. Sat at the bar after dinner, that was just OK.
Zio's has become our go to restaurant. They have one of the best happy hours that goes from 4:30-7:30pm. As there are tables and banquets in the front of the restaurant, which is considered "the bar area", you are not stuck standing at the actual bar for happy hour. We usually have dinner within that timeframe so it's perfect for us. We actually prefer dining in the front section of the restaurant. Some of our favorites on the menu include the shaved artichoke salad, fried calamari w/ zucchini, ribeye steak, Branzino and the Cornish Hen. Of course there is pasta (gluten-free option available) and pizza on the menu as well. Great place, service and menu definitely worth checking it out.
Went for birthdays celebration. Service and food were great. Very attentive and all guests were impressed. Would go again
