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

Every trip to St Louis includes a visit to The Hill for dinner, and on this visit, we decided to try a new spot, and were very pleased by our visit to Zia's. Based on TA reviews, this shouldn't have been a surprise, and the food and atmosphere was wonderful, from our bartender who spent some extra time helping us... More

You can't go to St. Louis without going to the Hill to eat at one of the Italian restaurants. We chose Zia based on reviews and loved it. Quick service, adaptable for kids even without a kids menu. The food was pretty good, but the dessert, especially the off menu homemade tiramisu was out of this world!

The HIll is a well known Italian neighborhood in St. Louis. We decided to go there due to the rating and length of time it had been in service. The toasted raviolis were very good but they had meat in them. The Zia's salad was very crisp and juicy. The pasta was large portions that you should take home. This... More
