We were going to the city museum so we decided to go to " the hill" to eat. I had never eaten at Zia's so we decided on it. Wonderful place to eat. Good food. I had baked cannelloni and salad with bread. Delicious! Friendly service, good menu and fun place to eat.

Great Italian food at a reasonable price. I ordered and devoured the baked mostaccioli with meatballs ( I tend to stick to the basics the first time eating some where). My girlfriend ordered the chicken marsala and it was very good as well. The pasta side of olive oil, garlic, and pasta was simple and perfect. The bread was great... More

Took a trip to St. Louis for the 4th of July weekend. We were in search of a better than average restaurant with ambiance, so asked some locals where to go for Italian and everyone said go to "the hill". Searched the internet for a list of restaurants and Zia's had good reviews so we thought we would give it... More

Excellent food. Just a short drive from downtown.There is usually a bit of a wait and parking is challenging, but well worth it.

I came here for lunch and everything I had was absolutely delicious. We ordered the toasted ravioli as an appetizer and they were amazing. Even the bread they brought before the meal was delicious! I had the baked mostaccioli with meat sauce ... Absolutely amazing. The service was fantastic and the food is very reasonably priced. The only reason I... More

Went to Zias just as they were opening for lunch. Sat outside at a sidewalk table and ordered a nice bottle of wine. The waitress was very nice and attentive. I had the Arancini as an appetizer. Heavenly little balls of deep fried risotto with cheese and sausage.Then came the tortellini Piselli. OMG! So divine. My only complaint was that... More

I had heard SO much about Zia's, and I knew I had to try it on my visit to St. Louis. The wait for two people on a Saturday evening was about 45 minutes, which was expected. The food was well worth the wait! We had a wonderful server, and I really wish I had gotten her name! If you... More

I came in to Zia's later in the evening, after a long and awful day in airports getting home from visiting my sister in Connecticut. My husband picked me up at the airport in St. Louis at around seven in the evening, and asked me if I was hungry....we decided to go to Zia's, because (a) it was fairly close... More

Here on business and was treated to the Zia's experience by a local. The food was absolutely excellent. The portions are generous, fresh and prepared with care. From their salad with a house Italian dressing topped off with cheese to their home made bread and chicken tortellini, this restaurant is an Italian surprise. My impression is that the owners of...

Beginning the second week of my summer 2014 vacation a friend of mine decided where would be a great place to have a casual lunch and wonderful food and of course enough garlic to kill any vampires that are nearby . I always forget how much The Hill has to offer a person who is a native of Missouri or... More
