Best Italian Restaurant in Kaneohe

Zia has an exciting menu with lots of choices to select from. The dinners and lunches my husband and I had were delicious and presented nicely. We have been there many times. Ambiance is lovely and Italian flavor.

I recently moved to the area and was recommended by a friend to give this place a try. My boyfriend and I went on a Saturday night for a late dinner and only waited 10 minutes for a table. When we were seated we were instantly greeted and welcomed warmly by our server who gave us the specials of the... More

I haven't visited this restaurant for at least 4yrs due to the food not being the greatest. Being that I live right around the corner, I thought I should give it another try. Instead of dinner, we went there for breakfast, thinking that you can't really mess up breakfast. I can say that the menu is limited, and they promote... More

Best Italian restaurant on the island hands down.Don't see something on the menu you like ask and the chef can whip up something you'd like.Can't wait to go back again.

I've eaten at Zia's several times and each time the food was great...and the servers were great--but it took SO long between ordering and actually receiving the food. Would definitely give a 5 rating if the food arrived more quickly.

Zia's pretends to be an Italian restaurant, but isn't. Inferior bread, limp salads, bland sauces over commercial pasta, and either under-done or overcooked poultry entrees make this a must avoid restaurant. The road noise from Kamehameha Highway and the Likelike is unpleasant. Zia's servers apparently are required to try to up-sell their customers, which makes their service seem insincere. This...

This evening we had dinner at Zia's. We live in Kaneohe and go to Zia's. This evening I ordered the dinner salad and it was big enough to share. We ordered the Caesar Dressing on the side and it was a very good dressing for the House Salad. My husband ordered the 3 Cheese and Spinach Ravioli and I ordered... More

A locally-owned restaurant catering to families, college students and employees from Kaneohe, open for lunch and dinners, partially open air, enclosure if raining or windy. Nice selection of wines and salads. Sandwiches and past dishes with an Italian flair. Many regulars. Prime rib and steaks are top notch. Good place for a first date. Cosy candle-lit tables. Reservations advised. Prices... More

Located right off the Kamehameha Hwy. easy access. Pasta is the way to go, but order the bread with olive pesto as an appetizer. Pretty decent wine list, with local beers available. Outdoor seating, nice ambiance. Mid range priced, and several choices of entrees for any palette. Known for their Bread Pudding dessert!

This is not traditional New York Italian food, but it is good. The restaurant is on a very, very busy and LOUD road, so sit outside if you don't want to talk with your fellow diners. The gnocchi was good and I would order it again, but the chicken marsala was way off mark and uber sweet. The wait staff... More
