Our family used to absolutely LOVE Zio's and looked forward to our visits there. Their white sauce was to die for! Over the past few years, it has gotten worse every time we go. The white sauce no longer tastes the same, and their prices have gone up for worse tasting food. We have all agreed we will never return.... More

We were on the way to Platte City, MO to our hotel and needed dinner. We saw Zio's and tried it out. We had Minestrone soup and shared a Calzone. Great food and staff. On the way out we were thanked by four staff members. I don't remember ever being thanked by so many. It made me feel that they... More

We were back in town for a wedding and HAD to stop in for the artichoke spinach dip. They changed the way they serve it, and it just wasn't the same. It was still good, but it used to come out bubbling hot with cheese on top too! Our meals were ok, but I just couldn't get into the Italian... More

Zio's had reasonably priced food for Italian. I enjoyed the spicy chicken alfredo and my husband said the spicy shrimp and prosciutto was excellent. I also thought the complimentary bread and olive oil dip was delicious. It seems to be a place you could have a celebratory meal or have a casual dinner.

Wanted a dining experience just to chat and make plans for upcoming events. Got right in, without a reservation, even though the place was packed. Timing is everything. Nice way to finish the day. Italian Nachos are addictive. Marinara sauce needs to bit more body. Very nice experience...

We had not been in the restaurant in several years. We quickly figured out what we have been missing. It was the most enjoyable Italian dinner we have had in sometime, except one made by my daughter-in-law Gina. Sorry Zio's. However, we plan to return soon. What i believe may it so enjoyable was the sauce. Best sauce i have... More
