It's An Icon

This place reminds me of the Italian Village restaurant in Chicago. When you step inside, you feel if you're transported back to some old Italian family gathering spot. Dim and intimate, you'll love it. Old world. Big portions and hearty. Just good food with good service.

We came on a slow night and were seated right away. Place seemed pretty lively and active with what appeared to be some larger parties in the back. We had one order of toasted ravioli and three pasta dishes, 1 coke and 2 waters. The bill was north of $60 with a tip. Food was ok, but not $60 ok.... More

A good measure of an Italian restaurant is the variety on menu. Too many good choices. Very enjoyable. I had the Carbonara, it was a great meal while on the road.

Traditional Italian food, with great red sauce. Never had a bad meal here. This is where I'd take special guests. Crowded lunch and dinner.

This was our 2nd visit here. Always come with friends that is their favorite Italian place in this city. Never impressed. I read the TripAdvisor reviews, this time, thinking that maybe I was just ordering the wrong items. The seafood was highly recommended, so that is the direction that I went. Very plain, no pizazz white fish with a salad... More

Whenever we have a taste for Italian food we think of Zia's. It is located in the Italian Hill district of St.Louis. We have eaten there several times and have always enjoyed the bread with olive oil and fresh parmesan before dinner. The dinner salad is good too. A wide variety of Italian offerings. It can get very crowded at... More

Only stopped in for the calamari, a glass of wine and a beer; but hostess was understanding when we changed our minds and decided to eat at the bar. Then, the bartender was as helpful as any server could be, and the calamari was excellent. When we return to St. Louis in February, we will be sure to return for... More
