Okay, the reviews are amazing and everyone mentioned to go to "the hill." The wine was good and came with bread and butter. Zia have their own oil for bread which is okay but with some balsamic was available. The ravioli was mediocre at best. I have lived and been to Italy, so a bit picky but the sauce tasted... More

I'm not a big pasta eater but was told we had to eat on The Hill. Zia's came recommended by a couple of people since we were bringing our kids. Got a Chicken dish that was unbelievable and it came with salad and pasta. Seemed like a neighborhood restaurant and locals throughout the city knew about this place for great... More

I went with a group to Zias. As we were a very large group traveling together, we had a special menu, with featured items from their regular menu, The salads was crisp and fresh and the bread was so fragrant and was served warm, as if it had just come out of the oven. The wait staff was exceptional- quick... More

Very hot day, around 1 I was graciously helped to a seat b/c the hostess saw I was on oxygen and was struggling breathing with the heat. Between her kindness and the aromas filling the air I knew we were in for a delicious lunch. After the young man brought our drinks and bread I felt "The Hills" reputation in... More

Highly suggest reservations. Located in the Hill Neighborhood. Looks small outside but lot bigger then it looks and multiple levels. Tender calamari to die for. Seafood dish was delicious and son loves his chicken Alfredo. Don't skip dessert.

We come often to Zia's. We have come to love their reliable predictability of their dishes. We order the Speidini Prosciutto every time. It's the service that changes. Our last visit was just horrible, as we had Rich as our server. His friends were more important, they were dining at the next table. We were completely ignored, other staff picking... More

Family of 5 with teens ate here while visiting the city. Nice enjoyable meal. The pasta dishes were a little oily or else would have given 5 stars. Service was great and prices weren't too steep. Thanks.

Zia's is an excellent restaurant for families, dates, or just lunch. The food is excellent, and is all very reasonably priced. Specifically, I love their house Italian salads and the chicken spiedini (charbroiled chicken breasts with garlic, lemon, bread crumbs, prosciutto, cheese). Yum! The pasta dishes are also excellent. Generous portions, and fresh ingredients.

My parents took me here for my 16th birthday. I've had every birthday there since and go as much as I can. I used to work nearby and would go weekly. Amazing food, great staff, good environment for any occasion. Highly recommended.

Thank rheffernan11
