This is the third time I have been to the restaurant. It will be the last. The first time, the food was generally good. The second time, the food was mediocre. This time, the food just wasn't very good, and the server could have cared less, even though he highly recommended one of the dishes we had. As an appetizer, we had the pizza with the prosciutto. The crust itself was doughy and undercooked, and cold, poor quality prosciutto was layered on top. The fettuccine bolognese was a better choice, but the pasta itself was overcooked. The waiter highly recommended the lasagna with meat sauce, but it turned out to be nothing more than a cheap blob of cheese, with no layering of pasta and void of any real meat sauce. When asked by the waiter, we told him of our opinion, but he seemed uninterested in our feedback at that point. Perhaps he was too focused on trying to steer other guests to an expensive bottle of wine as he did with us. I don't expect that much from Italian restaurants in Dallas, but Zio Cecio can't even meet the standard of mediocrity any longer.
Date night with my wife for Valentine’s Day.
Great place to have a date night or an evening with great friends and good food.
It was a magical Valentines dinner thanks to Francesco Farris and his team of professional, warm and efficient wait staff.
The owner has worked hard to build this neighborhood gem.
It was Valentine's Day and our first trip to ZC.
It will not be our last.
The food was amazing
The wine was amazing
Service was good.
Only ever so slight issue was the chairs. Hard flat wood. Cushion would be great.
Absolutely delicious. My waiter was really nice and attentive. 10/10 recommend.
This place was flawless, not only In service and ambience, but the food was as authentic as you can get!! Phenomenal!! Will definitely be returning.
Love this place. Intimate setting and great food. Their Cabonara is fantastic. Everyone loved their meal.
Italian food is our "go to" and we prepare it commonly at home. We were disappointed with the special dish of the night - a pasta with shrimp. It was served in a tomato sauce that was fine but nothing amazing. And came with 5 or 6 shrimp. The cost was $31. Seriously overpriced especially given that most pastas on their menu were somewhere between $13.50 and $19.50. This dish did not warrant the price. The pizza was underwhelming too. Far too much cheese.
Your friendly, neighborhood Italian restaurant with very well executed food.
AMAZING! I felt so at home here, first time! Will definitely be back. Loved everything about this place!!
We had a terrific dinner. Everyone enjoyed their entree. The owner is very personable.
Zio Cecio is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Their fish has always been amazing and their carpaccio. When we do take the kids, they devour the pizza. Quiet and romantic yet family friendly earlier in the eve;)
