    I would call this place tourist food, but the tourist trap pizza places around the major landmarks in the city serve better food. I am frankly astounded at the number of 5 star reviews this restaurant has racked up. Bruschetta: The tomatoes were flavorless and everything else was trying to cover it up. Lobster Ravioli: We couldn’t taste any lobster, and despite that was the best thing we had. Chicken Marsala: The chicken felt over cooked, was covered in bland watery sauce, and served over a pile of spaghetti that I suspect came from a box. If it didn’t, my compliments to the kitchen on their faithful replication of Barilla. The only thing saving this place from a one star review is the excellent staff. We were seated right on time, and the servers were prompt and polite, and we received great service overall. Edit: The “Italian” sandwich I ate the following day at La Guardia airport was better than any of the food we at at Zia Maria.

    Zia Maria Little ItalyResponded on July 16, 2022Hello Jay sorry for your experience, but like you mentioned with the outstanding number of 5 star reviews we know and are confident in our authentic Italian food nevertheless we appreciate your feed back. Also I can assure you that the sandwich at the airport is nothing compared to our homemade pasta, fresh mozzarella and brick oven pizza.

    We ate there on our last night in NYC as a family and it was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. We ate outside and it was picturesque. Lobster ravioli and the chicken Marsala were exceptional, as were the homemade mozzarella sticks.

    The food was amazing and the staff were extremely nice. It did take quite awhile to place our drink order but after that everything was smooth. We had a picky 7 year old with us and they went out of their way to accommodate his tastes. He loved his dish, as did the rest of us. My Vegetarian mother also had a lot of choices

    We wanted to find somewhere new for dinner and we hit the jackpot!! The staff was on point and the food was delicious - the chicken parmigiana cooked just right with fresh homemade fettuccine and fantastic red sauce! They even had someone singing perfect music for a truly Italian restaurant. They even helped celebrate my husband’s birthday by bringing out dessert with a song!

    After my civil court marriage ceremony, we decided to eat at Zia Maria. There were 8 of us but only 6 had made it on time. While waiting for the other 2 in our party, they offered us baskets of bread with olive oil, balsamic vinegar & red chili flakes. Once the other 2 arrived, we ordered our meals. Service was a little slow during our meals so we had to flag down a waiter to get his attention but the food was great! We got a margherita pizza, mushroom risotto, penne vodka, seafood special and the eggplant parmesan to eat family style. At the end of the night we got tiramisu and the cheesecake for dessert. They were so thoughtful and brought out a shot for our table as we just completed our marriage ceremony nearby! Definitely go check this place out. Ambience was great, food was great, the people are very thoughtful and made our night!
