Dinner at Zia's

Zia's was recommended by hotel clerk as a good family style Italian non chain place for dinner. Had to wait 45 minutes for table at 6:00 in the evening. Lot of locals eating there. They really didn't have a child's menu, but would fix a smaller portion of pasta dishes. Prices were reasonable... read more

I was brought here by my wife for the first time. I had heard about this location but never first hand experienced it. I am glad I did. I had a great time and enjoyed some great food. I would recommend the garlic bread to anyone!

The food quality, presentation, and portions were great. The menu was very authentic. The service was very good, but it is a busy spot so don't expect a quick meal. The atmosphere is wonderful. Seating is a bit cozy, but nice.

I couldn't help but MMMM and OHHHH with every few bites. This is hands down the best Italian food I've eaten. I ordered the Pasta Con Pesce. It has a spicy kick and the seafood in it is cooked to perfection. The portions are so huge that I ate it for lunch and dinner the next day.

We visited this restaurant because we had a taste for Italian food and on the recommendation of a friend who visits the St.Louis area often to visit her daughter at college. The location is a little out of the way and I wasn't sure where I was driving to and, not being familiar with the area I was surprised that... More

I had the pleasure of eating at Zia's when I went on a bus trip with my Mom. The staff knew the bus was coming and had everything ready to go. I had the Chicken Parm. and Mom had the Meatball Spaggetti. The servers were very attentive and the dinners were outstanding.

We had a great meal at Zia's. The wait staff was excellent and so much food that we took it back to our hotel room for dinner the next night. Calamari was wonderful, I had the Saltimbocca, others had the Toasted Ravoli, & Canneloni and all loved their meal. We all enjoyed the Olive Oil with Zesty Herbs for bread... More
