We stopped at the outside deck often this past summer. We loved it. Thought we would try the inside when the deck closed. Bartender inside not interested in being friendly. Food ok, typical pizza, fries and sandwiches. I'm thinking it was the beautiful sunny weather that kept us coming back to the deck this past summer, not the food.

Our server was excellent but food and atmosphere were regretable. Chicken parm was greasy and red sauce was so acidic they should serve Tums for dessert. Atmosphere was a pizza parlor at best - loud, bright lights and not that clean.

This is a place trying to bridge genres - cabana bar, sit down Italian restaurant, and sports bar. Do not come for haut cuisine, that is not Zia Maria's niche. If you want good basic bar food, with an Italian emphasis, with wide screen TV's showing sports, you'll love it here. In the warm months, the outdoor cabana bar is... More

We like there food, but we were there on Mother's Day in the evening and it took an hour to get our food. We went back a few months later because my husband likes the variety of choices on the menu. We live 2 miles away and don't eat here much because they always seem to be understaffed. How hard... More

I hadn't been here for quite a few years - there was no deck/patio last time - So I decided to stop in again with my kids on a Saturday afternoon as I remembered that the food was good. I ordered a chicken cheesesteak which was well grilled & the kids were satisfied with their choices. The menu has a... More

My husband ordered eggplant parmigiana and it was literally uneatable. It even looked gross... The pasta was also watery. The oil for the salad dressing was also of the poorest quality. I ordered calamari, and as I am speaking, I hope I don't get sick tonight. It was over fried and who knows in what kind of oil. The music... More

Zia Maria seems to have been around forever, or perhaps WWII. Clean, with classical looks and atmosphere, there are actually 3 Zia Maria's on the same site. One, the separate bar, the large restaurant in the middle, and a huge outside entertainment and dining area. In total they must seat 600 people or more. The menu selection is varied with... More

Stopped in for a late lunch early dinner while shopping in the area. Decided to eat out on the large deck and the weather was perfect. I ordered a personal pizza and my wife got a cheese steak sub. Both items came in a reasonable time and were as prepared as ordered. Nothing over the top but good food at... More
