We always enjoy eating here. I ordered the baked mostaccioli. The cheese on tope was so yummy and brown. The food stayed nice and warm as well. My husband had the seafood cannelloni and he said it was so yummy. My son had chicken Alfredo made to his liking. We had to park a ways away because it was busy... More

After having gone to Charlie Gittos on the Hill and having really good Toasted Raviolis at other St Louis restaurants, the food here was disappointing. I raved to my family about Toasted Raviolis since tried some tasty ones at Anheuser Restaurant and Charlie Gittos, the Toasted Raviolis here are just ok. My family tried them and didn't care for them.... More

My belief is that Zia's is so busy because you cannot get into Cunnnetto's. The restaurant is good, absolutely mobbed,and hard to get a table. The problem as with many restaurants is consistency. The food was tepid at best but the sauses still had the great flavor that keeps me coming back. The toasted ravioli are B+ to A- not... More

Zia's is just wonderful! We always feel welcome here, never rushed. The specials are always delicious,as well as the normal menu items. Wait times are not long. Our waiter was (as it Zia's norm) perfect with his timing of order, drinks, bread, salad, and then main course. Too full for Tiramisu (which is always YUMMY) we just got coffee after... More

This restaurant on The Hill is a favorite of ours. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. We eat here at least once a year when we are in St. Louis for a basketball tournament. They always have one or two specials of the day, but I always have my favorite dish, which is baked ravioli. Sometimes my husband has... More

I am going to stop writing positive reviews of Zia's because it is becoming more and more difficult to get in. Zia's remains the standard for the Hill. The specials are excellent. The seafood pasta dishes are my favorite. Linguine and clams or Con Pesce are my usual. The Zia salad is excellent. Try the tomato salad in the summer... More

Out of all the places we ate in St Louis, this was my favorite! The baked seafood ravioli was the perfect appetizer. My husband and our friends had stuffed mushrooms that they all claimed were delicious. And the bread...oh my. My husband had the garlic cheese bread. I think I let him have a couple bites before I ate most... More

Got the lunch special and it was awesome. Chicken breast with mozzarella, prosciutto, and broccoli. Wife got cannelloni and she enjoyed it too. I'd definitely go back
