Met a few friends after work for a couple of beers and had a great time. It seems to be a place that has quite a few regulars that are also welcoming to newbies. Our bartender, Brendon, was very relaxed with our group (a bunch of exuberant military veterans) and put up with our kidding around. Although we had already... More

Me and my wife were looking for a place to eat after we left the flea market. So we happened upon Zia Maria. They had outdoor seating, low noise level, and good service. I had this wonderful sandwich on focaccia bread, with lightly cooked prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, tomato, onion, and olive oil. Mama Zia! Bueno! They were a... More

We have lived in this area for 12 years and continue to try Zia's every so often. We are ALWAYS disappointed. The food lacks flavor and the drinks are weak.

it gets a bit too noisy. If you don't mind the packed yelling inconsiderate young crowd, Friday and Saturday nights are the time to go, if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of young adults full of themselves, to on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday evening, it's not as crowded and you can hold a conversation with your...

Went for dinner. Service was friendly but the restaurant wasn't very crowded either. Food was average to poorly executed typical Italian restaurant food. Has a bar with TVs and an outdoor bar and seating area so for drinks and watching the game it may be a good place. I wasn't there for that though so my rating is mostly based... More

Sowe were looking to find a new place to eat during our visits to Adamstown. Not Zia Maria's .....at our table we had a panini (immemorable), pizza (also immemorable), a cheese steak (cheese was minimal) and a shrimp fra Diavolo (semi-tasteless). Sorry.....cannot recommend.

On the way home from the Grandkids. Stopped at Zia Maria for a quick supper. I ordered pizza and a salad. My wife had a grilled chicken on a salad. All the food was GREAT! Our waitress was very helpful and knew all the restaurants items. The only downer was the cheap stamped thin steel flatware. My fork bent repeatedly... More

This is within minutes of our house and the food is good, so we have eaten there a few different times. It had an attached bar and it can get really loud. We have come to the conclusion that we will get take out, and avoid the noise. I realize that lots of people don't mind the noise, so let... More

You will love the outdoor deck area for sports or just relax, play a few games and have a delicious cold beverage. All the bartenders are fantastic. The food is excellent

My husband and I went here on a chance. We had heard conflicting reviews. It was great. I had chicken parmigiana and loved it. They brought us bread basket with different types but I loved the garlic knots. It is a bit pricey but that is everyplace it seems. We enjoyed it and even brought home leftovers.
