Zias is a very good Italian restaurant located on The Hill, the Italian district in St. louis. Their cannelloni, veal and pasta dishes are great. Ive never had a bad meal here!

Today was our second visit to Zia's. We were just as pleased as the first time. The staff is very friendly and prompt. They have a good selection of menu items and all are very good sized (will be taking some home with you). Husband had the Lasagna special with dinner salad, daughter had the Tutto Mare with dinner salad,... More

They have the best lasagna and seafood pasta that we have ever had, I cant describe in words how wonderful it tasted. This dish was seasoned and cooked to perfection, just make sure if you want lasagna that the only day they make it is Friday and it is well worth it. We are going back through St Louis the... More

So many items on the menu, and so little time! We came here for a birthday party with 20 family members including kids. Restaurant had no problem accommodating us, this place is HUGE inside. Street parking is scarce, though. We had fun tasting 2-3 appetizers and 4-5 different entrees. Everything on our tastebuds was prepared from mom's kitchen.

Good variety of entrée choices. All selections were delicious, as was the large salad. Nice variety of wine and beer. Fast and efficient service.

We just spent two weeks in Italy and Zia's simply does not compare to any meal we had in Italy. The service was prompt and professional, the serving sizes were large but the quality of the food was just OK. An American Italian style. We would not return.

Yum! Zia's was delizioso! Loved the building and the atmosphere as well. Started our meal with app - toasted ravioli. Husband said best ever. I had the special and wish I had two stomachs so I could have eaten it all. My husband had a seafood pasta dish and he liked very much but thought the crab was imitation but... More

I had the baked spaghetti and meatballs. My wife had the traditional spaghetti and meat sauce. The bread before the meal was very fresh and hot. We had other plans for dessert so we didn't try desserts here. The prices were good and the food was hot and filling! The service was great! We will return here again!

Meal started with delicious bread......their housebrand oil was some of the best.....we all bought bottles to take home....The salads were delicious....I had the butternut squash ravioli with seasoned pieces of ham, asparagus, and pine nuts all tossed...
