Zia's

I've been to Zia's a number of times because the food is great, the service is great and they give you a friendly pour. The kids gave me a gift certificate for Christmas a couple of years ago and I just recently rediscovered it with the past due expiration date. Zia's was nice enough to still... read more

The food is amazing. I don't remember what I got but is was plenty. The bread that they serve tastes amazing as well. Only downside was that I found a piece of plastic in my salad. No big deal but hopefully this doesn't happen to more people.

On a recent family trip to St. Louis, my family traveled to The Hill for Italian food. The Hill is basically a neighborhood with tons of restaurants in it. The streets are narrow, and parking takes patience on a busy night. BUT...your patience will be rewarded if you got to Zia's for a meal. The outside of the building is... More

If you know anything about The Hill in STL, you know there is no shortage of fine Italian restaurants. I've eaten at 3 or 4 of them now, but Zia's stands above the rest. Great variety in the menu and Jeremy, our server, made excellent recommendations. Their house salad w/ the sweet dressing made me want to eat every bite... More

We picked Zia's, as we wanted to experience the Hill and the Italian dining that can be found there. The Hill is a quaint neighborhood with restaurants and Italian bakeries that has become a destination in itself. We picked Zia's rather randomly, but did read positive reviews on TA. We ordered a carafe of house merlot and it was delicious... More

My wife and I ate here on 1/31/15. The food and service was just fantastic. This restaurant is located on The Hill area west of downtown St Louis in area of what seemed like an endless selection of Italian restaurants. We asked several local people where to go eat Italian food in St Louis and this was the recommended place... More

First time to Zia's and we were thoroughly impressed. I have eaten at many great restaurants but Zia's may be the best. Their food is shockingly good and even better than the best I had in Italy. Had the Spiedini Proscuitto from their lunch menu. It was spectacular! Perfectly done, so full of flavors and all in balance. Excellent sauces... More

The service is attentive, the atmosphere relax, but the food is average. Portions are huge and the food is greasy. The Martinis were good. We started with the cheese bread, fried mozzarella and fried calamari. My suggestion is stick to the bread. I asked the waiter to recommend a light pasta, and he was successful convincing me to order the... More
