Wonderful Italian sandwiches. While waiting, go browse the cold case for yummy dinner. dishes . I recently picked up ravioli and a great jarred tomato sauce -- two birds with one stone!

I love to get thinly sliced coppa, salami, mortadella, and provolone during football season. Great food to eat while watching Notre Dame!

Always super friendly staff - delicious side dishes and their desserts look amazing! The sandwiches are so good, the paninis are crunchy but not overly hard - perfection!

Zia's has wonderful food products, and the sandwiches are excellent. I really like the selection of Italian pastas to take home and cook.

I love this place soo much. The Lucca is such a classic sandwich that is fresh and tasty, I always order it on their soft french roll with the Sprecher Honey Root Beer.

Great fresh sandwiches. This would be an ideal place to pick up a picnic lunch! I highly recommend the Livorno sandwich.

We were wandering around downtown Davis and stumbled across Zia's. The long line almost scared us off because we didn't want to wait long, but on the other hand there's usually a reason people are willing to wait.

We've been going to Zia's for years. Their sandwiches are always good. Their prices are good. You can select from their suggested sandwiches or can build your own. The ingredients are top rate as is their bread. That's what differentiates their sandwiches from every other place. Wish they had more vegetarian options, and yes, their space could be larger. But...
