A side salad with iceberg lettuce is not something I expected from a highly rated restaurant, especially not for a $5 side salad. The marinara sauce was unimpressive, the chicken was average and the ham seemed like the cheapest kind at the grocery store. There...More

Outstanding....again....and again. Never disappointed with the fare and the variety. The drawback is it is only a half block from the Missouri Bakery. Temptation. An early lunch then spend the afternoon walking it off at the Botanical Garden or Tower Park. Laid back and comfortable,...More

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.
