We love Zia's but do not go too often because of the long wait to get in. No reservations, so unless you get there by about 4;30pm you have a minimum of an hour wait. The food is homemade Italian and very good.

Heard a lot of people say how great this place is..... Not impressed at all. We moved from New York to St Louis and are very disappointed with the selection of GOOD Italian restaurants

You think you know and love a restaurant only to find it can outdo itself once again. And this is Zia's!! One of the best on the Hill. We lucked out on our last visit to be able to sit outdoors and have a delightful late lunch. Impeccable service and meal.......and a big thanks to the manager Jeff!! You are... More

We don't get to St.Louis often but when we decided to visit again we knew Zia's had to be where we ate dinner. I had the Zia's salad (lettuce, green olives, artichoke hearts, ham, cheese) and spaghetti with meat sauce. My husband had a special chicken dish with a side of pasta. Both were yum, yum, yummy.

I am so happy to get to dine at my favorite restaurant for my birthday. I had the seafood ravioli and Zia's house salad. So good! I don't get to STL often, I live 2 hours away, but this has become a reason to visit. The Hill neighborhood is pretty unique and welcomes visitors. I hope you try it, you'll... More

Their salad was very good but the rest of the meal was just average. The desert - cannoli and tiramisu were not good. Lots of people for a Thursday night.

The bartenders did a great job to taste test a few wines. Offered a good selection of cabs and blends. Calamari Fritti deep-fried, served with lemon butter sauce and parmigiana. This may be the best calamari around. Zia's dinner salads was fresh with the house dressing-fantastic. Gamberetti thinly sliced veal covered with blended italian cheese. topped with shrimp, asparagus and... More

A visit to Saint Louis just is not complete without a trip to The Hill. A friend recommended Zias and all we could say after our meal was "wow!" Seafood ravioli, beef/sausage tortellini, mostaccioli with meatballs. This is real Italian food, and the prices are good for the quality and volume of food you get. Don't miss this place!

The weather was perfect for sitting outdoors. The temperature was pleasant, as was our waiter. We started with toasted ravioli, which was delicious and the marinara was perfectly seasoned. One member of our party had pasta carbonara, another had capellini carciofi, and I had veal parmigiana. All entrees were prepared well and the portion sizes were large. The Italian bread... More
