Italio to open this summer on Federal in Fort Lauderdale

Italio's Steak Piadina

Italio will open this summer at 2211 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale.

Some have called it the Chipotle of Italian food, since guests create their own meals ($6.78 - $8.98), choosing either a pasta bowl, salad bowl or an Italian wrap called a Piadina. There are choice of seven proteins including chicken, meatball or sausage and a variety of sauces and dressings. The final step is choosing from nearly 20 toppings.

The menu also includes small-portioned sides, desserts, beer and wine.
