This restaurant was mentioned on the tourist map but its location is right on the main road. It is a great find serving good Italian pizza and pasta dishes, It doesn't take reservations so you may need to wait a short while for a table to be made available. There's a small outside area and much more seating inside. The... More

Good Italian food but lacking in choices. A little slow but not bad. Prices are reasonable. Not the best location right next to the highway.

This was our second visit in two weeks. The rating above is the average between the two visits: 4-5 the first time and 1-2 the second time. The first time, service was excellent and food was very good. The second time, it was not as good. Both times, we had seafood special with risotto and pasta with clams. The second... More

This time the service was really bad! We were seated before the rest our party arrived and had menus but no server. The server finally asked if wanted something from the bar, we declined and asked for two glasses of water and never got the glasses, I walked to the kitchen area to get water! The evening went down hill... More

We were out driving around the windward side of Oahu. My wife want to stop for lunch so on a whim we made a u-turn and stopped at Zia's, What a great place.

Very good clam linguini loaded with clams and served with 10 more clams in the shell. Other pasta dishes were good as well but the pear and blue cheese salad was outstanding! When we ordered 2 small salads our server suggested one large for the table, less money than 2 small. It was more than enough for 3 people, fresh... More

Great Italian food and more. Excellent auction day fish over wild mushroom risotto. Good and varied pasta. So, so wine list, but great service. Friendly, family type atmosphere& some outside seating. Is crowded, parking can be a bit of a problem. Excellent Sunday brunch.

We were looking for a lunch spot that wasn't fast food and noticed Zia's from the road. The building was cute but I couldn't have imagined that the food inside would be so good. The staff was very friendly!

I have eaten at Zia's many times. Celebrated birthdays there & some holidays. Italian food is great. And I have always enjoyed the Prime Rib. They send me e-mails advising me of Prime Rib weekends!

Thank Kihele
