Known for its delectable cuisine, Italy also shows prowess in its architecture, as illustrated by St. Peter's Basilica and the Colosseum, both of which are held together entirely by linguini. Demolish savory scaffolding with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Mio's Pizzeria in Loveland.
At Mio's Pizzeria, culinary legends have been whipping together original italian sauces, crusts, and breads for more than 35 years to craft a menu that helped make the restaurant a top contender in Metromix's Best Pizza of 2011. Sure-footed squadrons of zucchini, broccoli, red peppers, peas, and other garden-dwellers traverse the veggie pizza's signature sesame-seed terrain ($7.99–$17.99), arranging themselves evenly or into outlines of David. Meanwhile, a basin of fresh dough rings the Windy City stuffed pie's italian sausage, onion, peppers, and triumvirate of cheese ($9.99–$22.99). Snuggle smiles into the steak hoagie's pillowy bun ($5.19 for small; $6.59 for large), or the homemade lasagna's pasta bunk beds covered in sauce and a four-cheese blend ($10.99) more diverse than Da Vinci's CD collection.
Mio's Pizzeria's welcoming eatery hosts pintsize chefs on Mondays and Tuesdays, when kids can design and dig into a one-topping pie that fits their culinary preferences. Wee ones can also keep busy every evening with butcher paper primed for doodling or brainstorming algebraic theorems as parents enjoy Mio's Pizzeria's Italian-flag-inspired red, white, and green décor.
A Cincinnati favorite, Mio’s has been baking up their signature pizzas for adoring clientele since 1975. Their original, buttery crust is a canvas for splotches of pizza sauce, which peek through a smattering of cheese and various toppings such as sausage, banana peppers, and black olives. Before deciding on an original or stuffed pizza, guests can whet palates with an order of garlic bread or hot wings. For those who prefer personal servings, calzones and hoagies are stuffed with enough juicy meats and veggies to feed an accomplished linebacker.
