We had been to their "Sister restaurant" Straw Dogs on River Road before. Zona 78 is a different concept, much more upscale in both decor and menu. I had the pasta Milano with shrimp which was excellent.

Located in a strip mall, but has great local reviews, with many awards. SUPER spaghetti & meatballs. Plan to take some home, due to the large portions

4 of us had dinner here and we were disappointed at the Spaghetti/Meatballs and Pasta Milano (portobello farfalle with cream sauce). The Spaghetti was $17 which is high to me especially given the amount of food and the 1/2 slice of bread was old. Granted...More
