The food was very good. Service was pretty terrible. I am not very high maintenance, they seemed rushed like they were understaffed but the place was not very big and not full at all.

My wife and I got there they didn't ask us if we wanted anything to drink. Within 1 minute of sitting the waiter walked up and asked what we wanted to eat. We were't ready so I asked for a few more minutes and before I finished my sentence the server was gone. He didn't come back for about 10 minutes. So we ordered and never saw him again. No one asked how our food was. No one refilled our waters. Someone came by and cleaned up our plates and then we sat for about 15 minutes after that with no one coming to our table. It was too bad because we did want to look at the desert menu but no one offered or even came by for us to ask! I had to ask the food runner for the check.

Food was great, service was bad. Maybe it was a bad night for them. I would give it a second chance.

Have never had such a rude waiter. When some of a party of 12 arrived and gave 2 names the reservation was under he refused to check under either name. Despite the fact that we had a reservation the waiter basically demanded that we order quickly. One entree came with a hair in it and multiple entrees were sent back due to being cold. Worst restaurant experience I have ever had. Do not waste your money here.

We were looking for a good traditional Italian restaurant to eat at before my husband's marathon, and this was very good! Our food was delicious. Service was mediocre - we had to ask 3 times to get a bread basket but it fit our needs.

I went to Zia Maria for Brunch on Sunday. Very nice place and the experience was OK in general. The only flaw was the size of the portion. I tried to scape the brunch menu so I looked for the normal menu options, and the pasta looked great. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. The taste was good but they served only 4 normal size ravioli pieces. Smaller than a appetizer. Other options from my party were ok, just bad luck I got the ravioli.

Everything about this restaurant is great! The food, service etc. But the other night there were a group of late teens or early 20 somethings who just made it difficult to talk. They ere so loud it was a turnoff. It's usually never like that.

We had a family dinner here. Service and food were great. Best fried calamari I've had ever. Was soft and and lightly battered. Not chewy at all.
We also had a bottle of Rose wine that was very good. I highly recommend this place.

Solid if unambitious Italian place that rocks the standards but doesn't try for greatness. A welcoming, comfortable restaurant with good solid service and a menu of unsurprising items. Had the Romana Pizza which was excellent and the pappardelle with porcini mushrooms delicious cream sauce that was maybe a little too much but delicious none the less. Dessert is just okay. So if you're in the mood for decent Pizza solid pasta, good salads this is the place for you.

Dined here a couple of times pre-movie in April 2108 during Tribeca Film Festival. First time, sitting down at 7 pm, the place was buzzing and the noise was overwhelming. Second time, at an earlier sit down time, it was quieter - make that less noisy. The Tribeca Festival is obviously good for trade, and good luck to Zia Maria. The Italian-style food is not bad and prices are fair for a mid-town location.

Pepe is a great server,we started we the Caprese and Tagliere Italiano antipasto, which was huge. Took half home with me. Dinner was special Fettuccine Pesto Shrimp,Spaghetti Bolognese, and the Penne Vodka. Again the plates were large and the food was fantastic.
A lot of take home, which made for a very tasty lunch. Looking forward to our next visit!

The place itself is nice but the food is, unfortunately, nothing special. I ordered a beet salad. There was a pile of arugula with five beet slices, and those beet slices looked like the sliced beets you get in a can. I also had the meatballs. They weren't bad but nothing memorable. My husband had the chicken parm with a side of spaghetti. Also, not bad but not great. Just ok. This all tasted like a meal one could make themselves or reheat, no great cooking skills required. The waiter was very nice and attentive so overall not a bad experience but when I dine out, I want to eat something that I don't feel like I could prepare myself.
