We visited with my granddaughter who is a very picky eater. We had the baked ravioli appetizer, it was delicious. The rest of the meal was wonderful as well cooked to perfection. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the choices.

Busy, somewhat noisy place like you expect for a local family Italian. Service was good and food was above average. Nice to get a flavor of The Hill section of St. Louis.

Stopped here at the beginning of a quick trip to St. Louis and probably one of the best restaurants that I've ever eaten at. Toasted Rav and Lasagna were FIRE!

ZIa's does not take reservations. There will be a long wait on the weekends, but if you go early (before 5:00), you should be okay. It is also kid friendly.
