I have to agree with previous poster. This place is going down hill FAST! I don't know what went on here because it used to be good, but is just not the same. I do not think a single person here knew what they were doing. We even witnessed a server getting berated to the point of tears by (I guess?) someone "in charge". I personally will not waste my time or money here any longer.

The food here actually is pretty decent. Don't expect gourmet Italian dishes, and you won't be disappointed. However, it's way over-priced, the wait staff was hired for how they look in tight t-shirts [pretty good, but...], and if you're looking for a seedy bar and maybe a fight, Zia's is the place to be at 1:30AM! Really a shame, because this place could be so much more, but the rep is going downhill.

Pros: Decent food, nice appearance

Cons: Where do we start? The staff, the prices, the bar........

A friend and I were on an antique buying spree in Denver, we ask the local for a good place to grab lunch, most said "Zia Maria's". All I have to say is WOW, the food is incredible and the service impecable!! We were impressed by this place so much that we went back for dinner. Next year and subsequent years after, on our return, there is NO doubt where we will be eating!! This is a "MUST EAT AT" restaurant!!!

Cons: a little loud but OK

This place used to be so much fun! My boyfriend and I want in last weekend, and it seems totally changed - and NOT for the best. It seems there are a lot of new employees and the one guy who seems to be "in charge" was outwardly rude to us. We will not be back. It is a shame.

THIS PLACE IS GREAT. FOOD IS AUTHENTIC AND FRESH. FROM A SLICE OF STONE OVEN PIZZA TO PASTA SPECIALTIES, STEKS OR SEAFOOD THEY DO IT ALL. THE CHEF'S SPECIALS AND HOMEMADE SOUPS ARE WOW. I'VE BEEN GOING HERE FOR OVER 10 YEARS AND BEING A TRAVELER I FIND IT TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD. THEY HAVE SUCH A FRIENDLY STAFF ALSO. THE PUB IS A LOCAL FAVOURITE. THEY DO SO GOOD I HEAR THEY ARE EXPANDING.

We've only eaten there a few times, cause every time we do, we don't like it. The cheese & toppings on the pizza are always good, but the crust is over cooked & dry. It is always a hassle to get take out, cause you have to walk through the bar. I don't like that part.

I've eaten there a few times and never had a complaint about the food. I did go on a Friday night, though, when the music was horrendously loud. I couldn't hear the people at the same table as me. No restaurant should be that loud. Only clubs should be that loud. We've never gone back in fear of running into that same situation. They have another restaurant, Piero's in Akron, that's much better.

PROS: Good food, Good atmosphere for teenages and young adults
CONS: Sometimes has ber loud events

The food at Zia Maria's is absolutely wonderful! We have gone there quite a few times and have never been disappointed although the service can sometimes be a little slow. It is also decorated very tastefully.

This is a nice place with a great outdoor bar and patio open in the summers. The location is sometimes hard to find, but for locals its a regular hang out. The food is ok at the most, the last time we were there the pizza crust was burned and the wrong toppings were on our pizza.
If all you want is a beer and to watch the race or game, this is a good place to come, but dont bring your family for the pizza.

PROS: Nice outdoor bar and patio
CONS: The food isnt that good.

We travel to the antique row area which is a strip of dealers on the road Zia's is on quite frequently. Having traveled the world searching for antiques, and of course dining along the way, we know food. Our stop at zia was fabulous. The food, the service(inculding the whole staff...server, bussers, host, owner(Frank) who were all so attentive and friendly), and the atmosphere. After the dinner a nightcap in the pub area topped the evening. Great bartenders and great crowd of regulars. Zia ranks as one of my favorite restaurants in the WORLD! Including Italy! You have to experience this place!

This is the greatest place in Lancaster county. Such a great spot just off the turnpike or rt.222 in the center of antique alley. This is just what the area has needed for soooo long. For a quick snack to a candle lit dinner...mmmmm. and check out the pub and/or deck with 40 (thats right) drafts!
You must check this place out! And mmm their homemade rolls! THE best lump crab cake I've ever had..and try the crab dip. mm mm mm
