Good fabulous as it was years ago - Francesco runs a great restaurant - service was good but waiter lacked a little personality!
We really enjoyed our dinner. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. Great place for a special event!
Great restaurant! Nice place to enjoy a good meal with friends. Authentic food and a great gem.
We have been there many times and the food and service are always excellent. We had the whole fish encrusted in salt and the lamb chops. Both good choices.
We had not been in awhile. We sat in the closed in patio which was very quiet. They had a large wine tasting party in the main dining area. Food was great!
Food was great, liked Ciopino, calamari appetizer was excellent. Pasta special was great. The wine list could use additions of less expensive choices for those who are not connoisseurs and are happy with a bottle under $30.
It would be nice if they had a few more moderately priced wines.
The cioppino was outstanding. Lots of fish and the broth was very flavorful.
great Italian food - I will definitely go back
I recommend the calamari appetizer
I ordered the $44 pork shank, medium rare. It was served medium well. I chose to proceed with the meal rather than wait for another serving while the 4 others with me ate their meal. It is very disappointing that such an expensive dish could not have been prepared as ordered. After several very enjoyable meals, this was the second time I have been disappointed with either the food or the service. I am hesitant to see if there might be a third strike.
I have Celiac so I am very sensitive to the smallest exposure to gluten. I had the MOST amazing gluten free fried calamari & gluten free lasagna. I did not get sick! I will be going back soon!! Yum!!!
All the items on the Menu are outstanding. But just be honest on what you like and they will accommodate your taste. Real Italian.
Zio Cecio is very well prepared Italian food at reasonable prices considering the excellent quality of the meal. Homemade pastas, great deserts, fresh seafood. Locally owned with a genuine neighborhood feel. Service is attentive and friendly. The outdoor seating area is very comfortable. Free valet parking. Limoncello cake is out of this world!
This neighborhood restaurant is always delicious! Kudos to the valet, who did not need a ticket to have our car ready immediately when we left, and to the manager/host who was so friendly and greeted everyone with a handshake. Our meal was outstanding. Thank you so much!
Outstanding Italian cuisine!
Every dish is prepared perfectly EVERY time!
Food always good, would like more vegetable/salad choices. Only drawback to this restaurant is unbearable noise level. Not good for friends and talk discussions.
Food and service were outstanding !
The pasta looked good, but the fish we had was fair at best. Wine was excellent.
The food is always awesome as is the service!!
An amazing place with authentic Italian food. Everything about this restaurant is perfect.
We have visited this restaurant several times over the years. The "Sardinian" influence is proudly acknowledged. This latest visit on Saturday evening was the least favorable among our experiences there. We were seated at a table for two is along one side of the small establishment. The table is quite long and keeps a loving couple well separated. We asked to be seated at one of the empty tables that would permit us to sit more closely and enjoy a physical proximity as well as speaking in a "soto voce" manner. The request seemed reasonable since there were few customers present, it was very early (5:30 PM) and we were repeat customers. To our amazement the owner steadfastly refused which thoroughly embarrassed the waiter. The experience certainly set a poor tone to what otherwise could have been a delightful evening out. The food choices were good, not great and Dallas has an abundance of better choices. We are done with this one.
The food is exceptionally good. Authentic Italian food prepared with the best ingredients and care. The malloreddus pasta is so delicious and light at the same time. I visit many Italian restaurants but rarely I have found this level and complexity of flavor even for a simple dish. Very authentic!!!
The aged tomahawk steak is something to write home about. Better that any steak I have had in any fancy steak houses.
The owner is very friendly and sincerely caring for his guests.
I highly recommend Zio Cecio!!
Really fun, the owner Francesco was great. Really made it a special night
We went for a Saturday night birthday celebration and the food was fantastic! Service was awesome and it's a wonderful atmosphere. A little loud, but not too terrible.
Very good restaurant. The food is great and the restaurant overall y pretty nice
Fresh and fabulous
Service impeccable....nourriture moyenne....
Appetizers great, focaccia fresh but expensive, made nice exception on a dish request, casserole eggplant parm and lasagna dishes disappointing- seafood excellent
As always, the food and service at Zio Cecio was outstanding! Very good Recchia wine recommended by the steward for a reasonable price.
The food was excellent and the service was amazing.
Overall wonderful dinner
The food, SERVICE, atmosphere and wine selection was beyond amazing. Me and my family had Ana amazing time. This is the best Italian spot in the DFW area. I highly recommend it.
Zio Cecio is by far the best italain restaurant in Dallas and not only for the italian food but they also have the tomahawk steak in Texas
Such great food, and fantastic staff! I can’t think of a negative thing about the experience.
Food was very creative and thoughtful. Everything tasted good and had the right balance of flavors and spices. The presentation was precise and appealing. The menu is a little dated with a decent portion of the wine list crossed out, but that is more of a pet peeve than a serious knock. The pace of the meal was perhaps slightly slower than I would have liked, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing either as it gave us time to talk.
The patio is a bit too casual. It's more suitable for families with young kids. The food is excellent. The one downside is the smell of sewer. I suspect it's because it rained hard the day before and it wasn't overwhelming but present nonetheless. Service was excellent.
Always delicious, always delightful.
What an amaizing dinner/celebration! The food was excellent, and the attention/service outstanding! Our favorite italian place
Wow .... simply amazing from the time I drove up , to the greeting by the owner ... Mr.Gilbert your party is waiting . We shared the octopus and it was amazing . We got the sea salt encrusted Branzino , filleted table side , amazing ! The grilled vegetables, amazing , guess you get the point , start to finish an amazing dinner. Oh and the Trio of desserts were a great way to end the evening. I will of course return , highly highly recommend them.
