If you cannot tell from my IG feed and previous post I am a FAN of Zio Ristorante. They lured me with their happy hour and stole my heart with their food. They recently invited me to come and preview their May lunch prix fix menu, and what food blogger can say no to that? Each month their 3 course lunch menu changes, and for a whopping $20 you can eat like a king or queen. The quality, presentation, and portions will leave you wanting to snap a pics for the Gram and scheduling all future lunch dates at this restaurant. Lets dive into this menu!
The starters for the May menu included Zuppa, Insalata, and Calamari. The Zuppa is a puree of green peas that is served warmed and has a hint of mint. The Zuppa has a great balance of the peas and the mint, the mint actually provided a delicate after taste. The Insalata includes mixed greens, strawberries, pumpkin seeds, fresh mozzarella, and balsamic vinaigrette. This salad screams spring and summertime because it is light and refreshing. The calamari had to be my favorite from the appetizer section of the menu. The grilled calamari included mango, cherry tomatoes, and fennel. This perfectly grilled calamari just melts in your mouth.
