Pios is a well established Italian Restaurant in St. Charles. It's a great place to have a large group in one of the private dining areas, or a quaint dinner with your spouse. The cons are the the restaurant is very dimly lit and the tables are pretty close together. The pizza is delicious and we usually get take-out.

If you like thin crust, this pizza is for you. It's flaky on the edges and there is a hint of cornmeal maybe on the bottom. My husband thinks they changed the tomato sauce recently, but I couldn't tell a difference. The place is family owned and even has an upstairs that you can rent for parties. Not sure if... More

I have not hated a meal at a restaurant so much as I hated my meal at Pio's last night.This restaurant definitely thinks it's fancier than it is.Over priced meals and mine was absolutely disgusting. I had shrimp Alfredo. The shrimp was just cocktail shrimp that was hardly cooked. The alfredo sauce was so thick and heavy and just not... More

My first time here, a family tradition of my girlfriend's family. I enjoyed the pizza and salad. Delicious. Our server, Adella, was very informative and helpful. Our cups were always full and the food came out quickly. We will be back.

Ordered three appetizers, also four entrees, drinks. Service was very slow, the food compared to last time. was terrible and lukewarm, the onion rings were the worst I've seen compared to all other restaurant that offer them. The garlic cheese bread for a Italian restaurant was a epic fail !. Greatest disappointment at a restaurant 3 years ago in Chicago.

Delicious Italian food at a very reasonable price. The staff is always super friendly whether sitting at the bar or at a table. The only downfall is how dark and somewhat dated it is, but other than that it is a great place to grab a bite and chat with friends!

The food here is great, but the reason we will continue to go out of our way to eat here is the service! They've always done well with our picky eaters and do fantastic with our busy toddler. They take wonderful care of us without hovering and being obtrusive. We will continue to keep going back as we have for... More

Several members of my men's chorus go here after rehearsals - I had not but they suggested it, so when my sister came into town & wanted Italian, we tried Pio's. It's been family owned for decades and acts like it - they greet you, everyone is friendly. We had garlic toast to start, a little pricey but good. The... More

When in St. Charles for a good dinner, this is the place. Get there early as they are always busy. Good Italian food, good service and old fashioned restaurant style.
