  • "Whether we're in the mood for Italian, celebrating a special occasion, or treating out of town guests, Zia's is our go-to. They've never failed to disappoint."

  • "We spent our "date night" at Zia's last Saturday. We arrived before 6 so were seated right away at a table near the window. The service was excellent (thanks, Marc!), as was the food and atmosphere. Just love the decor there. We enjoyed it very much. We have already recommended it and plan to return."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We ordered per the following menu option: PENNE CON POLLO, PESTO E PUMANTE – quill shaped pasta tossed with grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, basil pesto and cream – 17.95 We were served a plate of tasty pasta and portion of their own small loaf of bread. No desert and no beverage. This is overpriced for a casual ambiance! The noise level was very high, though we were outside on the dockside and the inside tables were essentially empty. Our waitress was not particularly outgoing. We won't be going back."

  • "We did a trip to toledo. I looked into the best restaurants in Toledo and Zias was recommended. Upon arrival I really like the decor of the place. We chose to sit outside which is a really nice view. Our server Eric was good and friendly. Their wine list is really small especially wines by the glass after I ordered my glass I was given a water glass not a wine glass(didnt see anyone with a wine glass). We ordered the fried calamari and it was soaked in grease(couldnt finish it), I ordered the veal parm, the pasta and sauce was very bland, salt couldnt fix it either. I guess they are know for their pizzas bc practically every table had one but coming from Chicago pizza was not an option..probably wont go back there if in toledo again"

  • "Nice Italian restaurant with great view of river. Service was slow but food was good."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Food was fresh, hot, and had the taste of "home". The server was amazing, knowledgeable about wines, and offered suggestions easily. The outdoor view was superb, the indoor atmosphere was busy but family oriented, and very comforting. We came on family member's suggestion, and didn't regret it."

  • "I took my girlfriend out for her Birthday here. Neither of us had ate st the restaurant before, but it I saw it has good reviews and I knew the view by the docks would be special. I was extremely happy with the way they treated us and the food was fantastic. After telling our waiter that it was my girlfriend's birthday, 3 other people who came to serve us drinks and check up on us already knew, which I thought was a nice touch for them to pass that on. I knew that this restaurant gave us half off our dinner food bill (for 2) for birthdays, but I didn't know that they also provided a complimentary dessert, which was also very good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and I can't wait for the opportunity to eat here again."

  • "We brought some out of town friends and their parents to Zia's for good food and a riverfront experience. We were not disappointed. Service and food were good. My request for some menu switches was no problem. We were given a nice round table for 6 right by the window (outside would have also been an option if we wanted to wait)."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food is always good. We didn't have drinks this time but took a couple 20-something's who thought it was fantastic. I had the ravioli for the first time and it was more than I could finish. I'm not tremendously fond of the marinara sauce but it's certainly not terrible. It could be a bit more flavorful. Service was fantastic and our server was beyond friendly, outgoing and able. It's one of our favorite Toledo restaurant choices for Italian. One of the better and just as good as Caio's."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Excellent service, food was very good but in my opinion a tad pricey. The place was very busy for a Sunday evening, as were the other restaurants on The Docks which I was glad to see. My wife and I had great time strolling the river walk after our meal."

  • "Dined outside overlooking the river. Meatball Pizza was excellent. Beatuful weather, lovely view, great service, and very good pizza. Perfect evening."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate here for a special occasion. The staff is very friendly and took good care of us. The prices are OK for the level of food they are trying to give you. The problem is that the food is a little bland for an upscale Italian restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is done very well. The outside has a great view of Toledo but could use some more upkeep and decor."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "the food and service was terrific. looking forward to our next visit. the menu was excellent. we had a reservation on the sandpiper and could not stay for dessert but they looked fabulous too. will make sure there is enough time next time."

  • "Great food, great service. Noisy large group next to us."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was a special event (birthday). The restaurant is extremely noisy, even in the "quiet" Library Room, so conversation with anyone but the person immediately next to you was impossible. Everything seemed slow, from receiving drink orders and meals, to receiving our checks. Over half of our party thought the food was bland/tasteless, the rest thought the prices were too high for what you get. We had a concert to attend and gave ourselves 3 hours for dinner. We were late for our concert by 45 minutes due to the slowness of the dinner! Do not recommend for groups, but have gone with 1-2 people before, and service and food were fine. Perhaps Zia's was not prepared for us (10-11 people) on a Saturday night, despite the reservation."

  • "Food and service were very good. Not your "traditional" Italian restaurant - some interesting items on the menu. Was hesitant to try the olive butter but it was delicious."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I had made reservations to celebrate my birthday. When we arrived they asked of we wanted inside or outside and we decided to wait a little longer for the outside. After waiting over an hour and watching them take multiple other parties without reservations back I approached the hostess who said she had no idea how much longer. We decided to take the inside table since I had two small children who were fussy by this point. As we were bring taken back we noticed 8 empty tables(on a 40 min wait) and were sat directly in front of the patio entrance were we could see open tables & then continued to watch people who came in a great deal later then us get sat outside throughout our dinner. It was extremely frustrating to say the least."

  • "My eggplant meal was generous and delicious. The wait staff was helpful and prompt. This was my first time here, and we will be back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Came here once in the fall and thought it was spectacular. I was here now in the summer (July 1) and decided to sit outside. Since I was traveling on business I was alone. They sat me all the way in the back corner (yeah that felt great). The waiter was slow, poured my water and said "I'll be back to get your drink order"... how hard could it have been to take it then...for one guy? Anyway, the salad had barely any dressing on it, lasagne was a bit overcooked and lacked sauce, waiter didn't bother to ask if I wanted fresh grated cheese. I still do like the garlic olive butter and the house bread is pretty good. The meal was decent, just not great. I would go back again, and maybe try something else. Third time the charm?"

  • "Have gone to Zias for birthday special several years and enjoyed it. The meal I usually order was called the same but had several changes to it, goat cheese instead of feta, fettucine instead of Orzo, but it was very oily and tasted oddly sweet. I requested 'less oil' and should have returned it, that is my fault, but it was not good. bread and salad were good. husbands meal was somewhat better but do not think I will return. Don't know if chief is changed or what. waitress/service was good. Place needs rennovating, very junky inside but outside is pleasant view."

  • "Zia's never fails to satisfy our appetite for Italian. The pasta sauce is the best in the area, and the service always impressive."

  • "patio door was left open which made it too hot inside"

  • "Was taken out by my daughter to my favorite Italian spot in Toledo. Made all the better by outdoor dining on a gorgeous afternoon. Watching the boats and the casual passer by made me feel like we had escaped the hum drum of Toledo. Special get away for a super Father's Day treat. This is a must do activity during the summer time for sure. Enjoy!"

  • "Waiter had too many tables, I did a 4:30 reservation to avoid this but to no avail he devoted his attention more to his tables of 5 and 6. Opened at 4 we we there at 4:30 and already out of special on board at entrance. Love the food, decor & location but get put off by sone of what seems to be staffing issues."

  • "We had a party of 8 that attended Zia's after a H.S. graduation ceremony. We had a 6:30pm reservation and were seated promptly. Disappointed several appetizers were ordered and were unavailable (Mussels and Calamari). Wait staff and kitchen appeared to be overwhelmed as serving plates were inconsistent in size (i.e. different sized soup bowls). Salads we on different plates and two in our party did not have dresssing or croutons on their salad. The main course and desserts were prepared and presented appropriately. The waiter did not replenish or inquire if we wanted additional bread with our meals. Refills of water were slow and I had to get spoons to assist those eating pasta dishes. I can't recommend going back, big disappointment. "

  • "The waiter had very little patience and it's expensive. She had pasta and I had chicken which was dry, took a long time to get our food. We each had 2 drinks and the bill was 75$ and 100 after I left the tip, the waiter did get a little more friendly towards the end of the night. I'd only go for the pizza ($20) and drink water next time. It's a nice place just not worth a hundred dollar bill. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We arrived 1 hour before our reservation and they still sat us immediately. Originally in the reservation I requested 2 seats at the bar because of specials they run but when we sat down, the bartender/server came over and his mood/attitude was very lackluster. It just felt like we were getting the wrong vibe from him. I went to the hostess stand (did not state the issue) but simply asked if we could have a table instead. She moved us immediately without issue. The rest of the night was great! We even had an assistant manager bring us a free appetizer because it was accidentally made extra. Food and Drink are spectacular here! Still working on eating the leftovers 48 hours later... lol."

  • "Great Mother's Day Dinner, I love that Zias takes reservations, no crazy waiting, we had a wonderful meal in a relaxed atmosphere and a magician as well. Food was excellent!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "A great place for 6 of us to have an early Mother's Day dinner. Zias accommodated 2 90yr old women and the other 4 of us with easy seating and waterfront view. Very nice. The only suggestion is to have blinds for the higher windows available to block the blinding sunlight during sunset."

  • "Zia's has delicious italian food and they have a lot of unique items on their menu. It is a fun atmosphere and you get a lot of food! My only complaint is that there is not a huge vegetarian selection on the menu, but the dish I had was delicious. Our service was excellent as well. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Unfortunately our food was not as good as it should have been. Calamari was excellent. Minestrone soup was very greasy. Salads were perfect. Steak undercooked (corrected by server), pasta seemed to have been undercooked, then warmed up with the sauces(not worth sending back, but disappointing)and shrimp a little undercooked and not very hot. Fortunately the excellent service we received made it all worth while. Problems were corrected and credit was issued to our check. We understand that mistakes happen and the service we received far exceeded our expectations."
