Zio

I’m always on the lookout for a good Italian restaurant. This is the third time I’ve been to Zio in the past 6 months — I can’t get enough of it! The melanzane (baked eggplant with smoked mozzarella) is my favorite dish. (I like it so much, I ordered one for dinner and another one to take home for later!) The pizzas have an ultra thin, super crispy crust, making them really light and airy, and the braised beef rib homemade pasta was deliciously meaty.

Zio: 17 West 19th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue)
