When I’m in St. Louis this is one of my favorite places on the Hill. The Zia salad is always a must. Service is always tops.

not a big fan of the ambiance-it’s an older building and you’re crowded in like sardines. but the food is terrific! I loved the risotto balls and my husband really liked his shrimp appetizer. the portions were quite generous too!

Of the many excellent Italian places on the Hill, my Business guest chose Zia’s. Great choice. We ate at the Bar, service was great, & the food even better. Huge portions, very fresh, as good as any I’ve had.

ZIa's does not take reservations. There will be a long wait on the weekends, but if you go early (before 5:00), you should be okay. It is also kid friendly.
