JOSH GARRICK Observer Sta The brand new Italio Restaurant in a perfect location just north of the busy intersection of Fairbanks and 17-92 in Winter Park has raised the concept of fast food to a level this reviewer never thought possible, AND theyve done it with (my favorite) Italian food! And here is the essence of what I have to share with you today. This is the best food you can get for the price anywhere in Central Florida. quick-service food concept in 2012 in Boca Raton where their customers quickly accepted this stand-inline, on-thego alternative to traditional Italian dining. Italios concept offers patrons literally hundreds of options to create the ideal meal we only wish we could cook at home with each ingredient pre-cooked by the restaurant and chosen by us. One happy customer summed it up by commenting, Do you like Italian? Do you want your meal fast? Do you understand how to order at Chipotle? If so, youll like Italio. Since were residents of Central Florida, we know how to stand in line better than any other people in the world, and remembering this is fast food, you can use your time (while standing in line) to make is to be served. It can be a Pasta Bowl, Salad Bowl or a Piadina, an Italian wrap, much like a French crepe that actually has its history in ancient Roman street food. Step two offers a choice of meats such as Chicken breast (marinated in lemon-herb vinaigrette at $6.98); Meatball of ground beef and pork $6.98; Grilled sirloin steak $6.98; Grilled shrimp $8.98; Italian sausage $6.98; or the Veggie medley at $6.78. You see what I mean about the value. Step three taps into our inner-chef and challenges us with varying combinations of sauces, dressings and pestos ranging from Alfredo to traditional Pomodoro to Roasted Red Pepper pesto. The over 20 toppings, including bruschetta, chickpeas, olive tapenade and a variety of cheeses. Please keep in mind these low prices come with the traditional fast food compromises of eating from cardboard bowls with plastic knives and forks. But there is NO compromising on the food. I was proud of myself for creating a dish consisting of whole-wheat pasta, steak, fresh basil pesto, and aged, shaved Parmesan cheese and it was delicious. Thats really the whole point here. Italio allows us to eat all our favorite comfort foods, and we can do it anytime, because the prices are so low. This was witnessed as I visit there exactly one month after the restaurant opened and it was already full of happy, pasta-loving customers. All around me, people were truly enjoying their food, which speaks to the atmosphere in Italio. Its a truly happy place. ferent readers who spotted me and shared how happy they were that I would be writing about what has already become a favorite restaurant for them. The Kids Menu is even cheaper ($3.98), and I enjoyed watching an experienced family as the kids professionally pulled their noodles into their mouths. Families cannot hope for more than a beautifully designed, clean restaurant that offers fresh ingredients at affordable prices for the casual diner. And theres more. As Italio wishes to be known as a good neighbor as well as being a good restaurant, they recently initiated Mangia Mondays a month-long charitable initiative and Outreach Center (CFOC). On every Monday through May Mondays will be contributed to the Central Florida charity, which transforms lives though education and employment opportunities. In addition, Italio and CFOCs employment division are collaborating to secure job placements for members at the Winter Park restaurant. Impressive. I love the food AND I love the ease of this new concept restaurant, and since Italian is my favorite, I invite you to come over and share your thoughts when you Its so cool its like pasta has its own happy hour all day long at Italio. The Winter Park location is at 276 South Orlando Avenue and is open 7 days a week from 10:45 a.m. to 10 pm.

You might find that someone has been secretly trying to pull the wool over those beautiful Sheeps eyes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines boldness pays off in uncovering the source of a dis turbing workplace situation. Your personal life calls for patience, as a certain matter plays itself out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Forget about going all out to impress someone in your personal life. Just being yourself is all that matters. A workplace decision will need more time. Dont rush into it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Some supersensitive Crabs might take offense at what they perceive as a slight. But a closer look points to a simple misunderstanding. The weekend holds a welcome surprise. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Sure, you can roar your head off over someones fail ure to keep a promise. But the wiser course would be to ask why it happened. Be prepared for an answer that might well surprise you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A developing relationship needs time to find its direction. So please be patient and resist push ing things along. A recently cooled-down workplace situation could heat up again. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Congratula tions. Your well-thought-out proposal seems to be working. Someone who hasnt agreed with you on most things in the past could turn out to be one of your major supporters. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things seem to be going well. However, you can still expect criticism some of it pretty heavy. But as long as you can back up your position, youll be able to rise above it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Getting together with people who care for you is a great way to get that ego boost you might feel you need at this time. Things start to look brighter by weeks end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You should be able to continue with your plans once you get past those temporary delays. Surprise, surprise. An offer to help comes from a most unlikely source. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Prioritizing your tasks is important this week because of all those demands you have to deal with. The pressure eases in time for you to enjoy the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Save your energy and stay focused on what has to be done, despite all those distractions youre likely to face. You should see some evidence of real progress by weeks end.

JOSH GARRICK Observer Sta The brand new Italio Restaurant in a perfect location just north of the busy intersection of Fairbanks and 17-92 in Winter Park has raised the concept of fast food to a level this reviewer never thought possible, AND theyve done it with (my favorite) Italian food! And here is the essence of what I have to share with you today. This is the best food you can get for the price anywhere in Central Florida. quick-service food concept in 2012 in Boca Raton where their customers quickly accepted this stand-inline, on-thego alternative to traditional Italian dining. Italios concept offers patrons literally hundreds of options to create the ideal meal we only wish we could cook at home with each ingredient pre-cooked by the restaurant and chosen by us. One happy customer summed it up by commenting, Do you like Italian? Do you want your meal fast? Do you understand how to order at Chipotle? If so, youll like Italio. Since were residents of Central Florida, we know how to stand in line better than any other people in the world, and remem bering this is fast food, you can use your time (while standing in line) to make is to be served. It can be a Pasta Bowl, Salad Bowl or a Piadina, an Italian wrap, much like a French crepe that actually has its history in ancient Roman street food. Step two offers a choice of meats such as Chicken breast (marinated in lemon-herb vin aigrette at $6.98); Meatball of ground beef and pork $6.98; Grilled sirloin steak $6.98; Grilled shrimp $8.98; Italian sausage $6.98; or the Veggie medley at $6.78. You see what I mean about the value. Step three taps into our inner-chef and challenges us with varying combinations of sauces, dressings and pestos ranging from Alfredo to traditional Pomodoro to Roasted Red Pepper pesto. The over 20 toppings, including brus chetta, chickpeas, olive tapenade and a variety of cheeses. Please keep in mind these low prices come with the traditional fast food compromises of eating from cardboard bowls with plastic knives and forks. But there is NO compromising on the food. I was proud of myself for creating a dish consisting of whole-wheat pasta, steak, fresh basil pesto, and aged, shaved Parme san cheese and it was delicious. Thats really the whole point here. Italio allows us to eat all our favorite comfort foods, and we can do it anytime, because the prices are so low. This was witnessed as I visit there exactly one month after the restaurant opened and it was already full of happy, pasta-loving customers. All around me, people were truly enjoying their food, which speaks to the atmosphere in Italio. Its a truly happy place. ferent readers who spotted me and shared how happy they were that I would be writing about what has already become a favorite restaurant for them. The Kids Menu is even cheaper ($3.98), and I enjoyed watching an experienced family as the kids professionally pulled their noodles into their mouths. Families cannot hope for more than a beautifully designed, clean restaurant that offers fresh ingredients at affordable prices for the casual diner. And theres more. As Italio wishes to be known as a good neighbor as well as being a good restaurant, they recently initiated Mangia Mondays a month-long charitable initiative and Outreach Center (CFOC). On every Monday through May Mondays will be contributed to the Central Florida charity, which transforms lives though education and employment opportunities. In addition, Italio and CFOCs employment division are collabo rating to secure job placements for members at the Winter Park restaurant. Impressive. I love the food AND I love the ease of this new concept restaurant, and since Italian is my favorite, I invite you to come over and share your thoughts when you Its so cool its like pasta has its own happy hour all day long at Italio. The Winter Park location is at 276 South Orlando Avenue and is open 7 days a week from 10:45 a.m. to 10 pm.

You might find that someone has been secretly trying to pull the wool over those beautiful Sheeps eyes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines boldness pays off in uncovering the source of a dis turbing workplace situation. Your personal life calls for patience, as a certain matter plays itself out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Forget about going all out to impress someone in your personal life. Just being yourself is all that matters. A workplace decision will need more time. Dont rush into it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Some supersensitive Crabs might take offense at what they perceive as a slight. But a closer look points to a simple misunder standing. The weekend holds a welcome surprise. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Sure, you can roar your head off over someones fail ure to keep a promise. But the wiser course would be to ask why it happened. Be prepared for an answer that might well surprise you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A developing relationship needs time to find its direction. So please be patient and resist push ing things along. A recently cooled-down workplace situation could heat up again. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Congratula tions. Your well-thought-out proposal seems to be working. Someone who hasnt agreed with you on most things in the past could turn out to be one of your major supporters. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things seem to be going well. However, you can still expect criticism some of it pretty heavy. But as long as you can back up your position, youll be able to rise above it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Getting together with people who care for you is a great way to get that ego boost you might feel you need at this time. Things start to look brighter by weeks end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You should be able to continue with your plans once you get past those temporary delays. Surprise, surprise. An offer to help comes from a most unlikely source. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Prioritizing your tasks is important this week because of all those demands you have to deal with. The pressure eases in time for you to enjoy the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Save your energy and stay focused on what has to be done, despite all those distractions youre likely to face. You should see some evidence of real progress by weeks end.
