Dio Mio is pairing a fast-casual atmosphere with fresh, homemade pastas. Seems like a fun idea, and we like the relaxed order-at-the-counter setup. But the food just isn’t quite up to par with other fresh pasta shops around town. We’re hoping that has more to do with the newness of this place, but as it is right now, Dio Mio is best for quick apps (especially the fried mozzarella) and a glass of wine after work - not the full dinner play.
