Great place for delicious food and drinks. Would recommend.
Great food fairly priced. Only issue was that did not follow COVID policies of New York
Came here after months apart to celebrate our anniversary before seeing a show (my boyfriend is in the military). I really wish I’d have trusted some of the other reviews. The restaurant is charming in pictures (and person) but the music and atmosphere were intense and chaotic. Our server never touched our table and I felt intrusive just asking for one picture to encapsulate our anniversary. Had the food been more than average, nothing else would have even stuck in my memory.
We were in search for a NY style pizza place that also serves Italian dishes, we found it at Zia Maria and figured as its location is in NY’s Little Italy, we chose this place. Four of us, each selected a dish from menu: calamari (appetizer), sausage & pepperoni (pizza), linguini & clams (pasta), chicken Parmesan (secondi).
Food and service was wonderful. I would recommend Zia Maria for a good hearted family style meal.
The food was mediocre. The pasta was not fresh but dried in my opinion
We loved everything from the amazingly delicious pastas food to the wonderful service. A must go restaurant when you’re in Little Italy.
Best Italy Food In NYC
Greeted warmly ever1 in a good mood. Waiter helped us with wine selection. Appetizers were delicious! Ravioli was especially good. Lobster, shrimp & calamari dinner cooked perfectly but a bit salty. Would go back!
Food was delicious and the wait staff was excellent!
Great food, great service. Thank you
This place was a great find on Open Table after a harbor cruise from Chelsea Pier. We had a quick (and safe) walk thru a beautiful neighborhood to find ourselves at a very bustling Zia Maria. Service was friendly and fast, the vibe was great and the food was excellent. I grabbed a card on the way out so I can remember to go back again. Lots of fun! Thanks, Zia Maria for a great ending to a great day in NYC!
This place is an absolute gem! The food was soooo good! Cute family owned spot with a nice friendly ambiance. We went for a birthday and they surprised us with a special treat and free shots! Would definitely recommend and will absolutely be returning! Try the Zia Maria chicken it was to die for!!!
Food, service, and ambiance were all wonderful. Highly recommend the Chicken Parm! Only complaint is that the music was too loud inside the restaurant.
Great experience and great food. Our server was fabulous and very helpful.
Was a wonderful way to end our day trip to NYC! We wanted a family-owned restaurant and they were wonderful! We were greeted immediately with a warm welcome and dined al fresco. I ordered the frutti di mare with the white wine red sauce our server suggested. It was a huge portion, was flavorful, and full of tons of fresh seafood. I got my father-in-law to try sangria and he loved it! We really enjoyed our meal and would go back in a heartbeat! Molto bene!
10/10 such a great time loved our waiter
Amazing food and service and a great street. We had the best server as well - an older Italian guy.
This restaurant is my new favorite in all of little! The pasta is made fresh in house and the sauces are amazing. The Pappardelle ai funghi was absolutely delicious!
Great food and great atmosphere!
I absolutely loveeee Zia Maria. Every time I visit I feel like royalty. Their customer service is OUTSTANDING!
Fun lively place. They had a singer the night we went which made it more fun! And the food was very good. The full carafe of wine was a very generous pour! The two of us could not finish it.
Great time! Great people and GREAT food!
We were celebrating a birthday. Food was plentiful, service was outstanding, we were not rushed, table spacing was perfect. Definitely will be going back in the spring. Great job guys!
Delicious food. I had a pulsd offer and the food was delicious. The ambiance was wonderful and best of all- the service was very polite and generous. Will be going back soon
Amazing food and service.
Had too many birthday parties and the hip hop music is too loud if you want to talk and catch up with friends
this is my 4th time here and this place never disappoints me ever. Staff is amazing and food is even better. I always walk out feeling great I recommend this place 10/10.
Wish I could say better things :(
While the food and drinks were great, the atmosphere was chaotic. And when we asked for the check, the waiters were rude and pushy. Unfortunate
They were very friendly and they tried to make us as comfortable as possible considering the weather. Definitely recommend!
Didn’t even get to sit down. Had a 7:45 reservation, got to the restaurant and was told that all tables were taken and that there was a wait to get one. What was the point of a reservation if you’re not going to hold a table? I understand we’re in a pandemic and there’s limited seating, but I shouldn’t have been able to make the reservation if there weren’t actually going to be any tables available.
The pasta is out of this world! Actually felt like I was in Italy. Pizza was awesome and who doesn’t love a boozybrunch! My only pet peeve was the host kept taking off his mask or pulling it under his nose. The hospitality was amazing though.
so fun, loud music, amazing food
Amazing food amazing service
We love this nice Italian restaurant!
Amazing food and amazing service! Would definitely come back again.
Best Italian food, amazing staff, and amazing staff. Chocolate mousse dessert is ligit ! Must try
Delicious food, excellent service. It’s one of the best place I’ve been in NYC. I recommend with not a single hesitation !!
