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.

Only ever so slight issue was the chairs. Hard flat wood. Cushion would be great.
Wonderful evening

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.

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;)
