Mio's Grand Opening (Guest Post by Beth Nyman)

The big day at is finally happening on Saturday- Mio’s is holding their official opening on Saturday, March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, 12:00 noon, in their new location on 15 N. Fort Thomas. On this opening day only Mio’s will offer a special pizza and pasta buffet menu. Mio’s will begin serving from it’s regular menu on Sunday.

Many Fort Thomas residents have been eagerly awaiting this opening. The former Warners/ Pergola space has been vacant since October 2009, and that great outdoor patio in front, once a favorite spot for the locals to see and be seen, has been sitting empty and forlorn for a long time. Mio’s has arrived just in time for the spring patio season.

Mio’s pizza has been in business since 1975 and they currently have 8 area locations. Their menu includes classic and stuffed pizzas, pasta dishes, salads, hoagies, calzones, and kids meals. Manager and co-owner Mark Fowler says Mio’s strives to make people feel welcome by providing a clean environment, great food, and the best service possible.

There will be some changes to the space. Mark, and partner and co-owner Alan and their crew have been very busy these past few months renovating, training new employees,(many of them Highlands students), and increasing oven capacity.

The main level front door off the patio leads to a new bar with café tables and a pizza pick- up area. Off the bar is a small dining room containing a 72-inch flat screen television, which will be used for regular seating and/or private parties.

The second floor front door at the top of the outdoor stone stairway leads to the main dining rooms. There’s a cozy fireplace to the room on the right, and a kid themed-room to the left, complete with a blackboard on the wall for the small and antsy. All the tables are covered in butcher paper and set with crayons in jars.
Parking is available in back of the restaurant, and may be accessed through the driveway next to Candy Cottage.
