Zia's on the hill has everything you might wish for in an Italian restaurant. Named for the owners of two aunts, Dennis and Angelo Chiodini, who were excellent cooks (Zia is an Italian aunt). Zia provides an atmosphere that's like being welcomed to a friend's home instead of a restaurant. The traditional Italian gourmet and St. Louis-style cuisine have made Zia a favorite for both local St. Louisians and tourists at reasonable prices since 1985. Their warm interior rooms formerly housed by an Italian grocer provide a comfortable environment for dining. From corporate events to weddings, Zia's is prepared to provide the ultimately culinary experience. Enjoy Italian imported wines, exclusive appetizers and regular specials on your occasions. Takeout and free WiFi facilities are available.
