Yelp Orlando was treated to a true Italian family celebration this week. We took over Italio in Winter Park and stuffed our faces.
"Sooo much food-more than any other YEE I've ever been to before. Ever. And all very good. And they were asking us to take it home! And giving us a coupon for another visit! Woot. Jeez, way to spoil a Yelper, Italio!" – Brandi B.
Italio is a modern Italian kitchen created with freshness in mind. Every meal is completely customizable and handcrafted in our open kitchen with only the finest and freshest ingredients. The weather, as usual in Orlando, didn't really let us party outside so we took it inside and truly experienced Italio.
"I've been dying to check this place out! First and foremost, Italio is an insanely generous business and group of people. They went above and beyond!" – Elizabeth F.
You have three options here: Pasta Bowl – heaping bowl of traditional or whole-grain pasta, Piadina – Traditional thin, authentic Italian wrap or a Salad Bowl – A bountiful bowl with your choice of romaine or Italio’s blended greens.
"Overall, the Italio idea is really good, and what makes it work is the quality of fresh ingredients that are available and one can choose from." – Stefano C.
So many toppings to choose from so each time you go, you can customize it to fit your mood and cravings. Yelpers did just that, time after time. That's right, we went through the line as many times as our little tummies pleased. We also had a range of beer, wine and Italian sodas. No one left hungry or thirsty, that is for sure.
"They topped it off with their Cannoli Chips with sweet cream and chocolate chips! OMG… they were so addictive!" – Christopher O.
We raised almost $200 for the Florida Hospital Diabetes Institute where they exist to improve the lives of people with diabetes, promote a healthy life style, deliver excellence in clinical care and education, and conduct research leading to diabetes prevention and a cure. We also played a very quick and crazy game and 4 people walked away with passes to next weekend's Pine St. Rock & Stroll.
