Zio's Italian Kitchen in Queens

April 3, 2024

Zio's Italian Kitchen provides large portions of made-from-scratch cuisine in a casual, family-friendly environment. Their restaurants specialize in pizza, pasta and salad.

On Wednesday, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection citing low oil prices and weakness in the restaurant industry as primary factors. Their 15 locations primarily lie in Texas and Oklahoma.

Most locations are freestanding in suburban retail areas. Owned and managed by Mazzio's Corp and Food Management Partners respectively.

Chicken Parmesan

Never go wrong with this classic Italian-American dish of breaded chicken breasts covered in homemade marinara sauce and melting mozzarella cheese - you simply cannot go wrong! Enjoy restaurant quality chicken parm at home, complete with crunchy breading and melty mozzarella on top.

Start this delicious Chicken Parmesan by starting with boneless, skinless chicken breasts or cutlets pounded to approximately 1/2-inch thickness for even cooking. Whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl while setting aside another bowl filled with seasoned bread crumbs (I like mixing panko and fine bread crumbs for added flavor)

Combine egg wash and bread crumb mixture before dredging each chicken breast; transfer to baking dish and spread thin layer of tomato sauce on the chicken, sprinkle one-third of Parmesan over sauce, top with half mozzarella and bake.

Italian Sausage

Zio's Italian Kitchen is a 16-unit casual restaurant chain founded by Mazzio's Corp in 1994 and managed by an affiliate of Food Management Partners LLC. All locations serve large portions of homemade Italian cuisine served freestanding or located in suburban retail areas.

Zios Italian Kitchen was among the many buffet restaurants owned by Buffets LLC to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, alongside Old Country Buffet, Ryan's and Hometown Buffet.

Crisp iceberg lettuce, garden salad blend, cucumber slices, Kalamata olives, pickled red onion, tomatoes and carrots topped with shredded mozzarella cheese and homestyle herb croutons served with your choice of dressing. Choose grilled chicken or marinated deli meat on freshly baked bread to complete this delectable feast, which comes complete with side of seasoned fries, house or Caesar salad and signature soup for a complete experience!
