Any idea what happens with Italio on N Orlando Ave in Winter Park? Sign on the door says location closed, new concept coming soon.” – Dan Oleary

Italio Kitchen (Website) in Winter Park has indeed closed. The “modern Italian kitchen” near Lakeside Crossing [GMap] posted a sign on the door last week stating that it had closed and that a new concept is on the way.

At the time of this post we have been unable to reach the owners but will update this post if we receive any new information.

  1. Well, my allergist would disagree with you. When my body breaks out in cold sweat when I consume food loaded with this crap.
    MSG has been used as a food additive for decades. Over the years, the FDA has received many reports of adverse reactions to foods containing MSG. These reactions — known as MSG symptom complex — include:
    Facial pressure or tightness
    Numbness, tingling or burning in the face, neck and other areas
    Rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations)
    Chest pain

  2. Oh I got into it with the manager there because they changed their pricing so I had to pay for extra ingredients…swore I wouldn’t return (knowing I was moving). I knew it was only a matter of time.

  3. Always got a tummy ache after eating there. And I had the salad! Chicken always looked like the dark meat leftovers from another restaurant.

  4. It started out pretty good. The last time I ate there I had a big time MSG reaction. So they had obviously made some not so good changes to the food.

  5. Spoleto by ucf or Florida mall is much better and last time me and Scott went in italio it had gone bad

  6. So sad. This was one of my cravings for both of my pregnancies. I can’t tell you how many piadas I ate!

  7. Alexandra DePasquale, it was a matter of time! But someone said Spoleto is going in nearby so it’s all okay.

  8. Spoleto is opening across the street and it’s got a local focus. Definitely recommended.
