    Great little spot. Service was fast and food was good. It was my daughters birthday and they brought out a piece of tiramisu with a candle. Very nice! The servers were excellent.

    We were a party of 9. Our table was repaired outside in front of the restaurant prior to our arrival. Our two dogs were welcomed and provided water and later meatballs when we ordered them. The server was very gracious of the food was delicious and we had a lovely evening. We sat at the table for over two hours and we’re very comfortable. We even had dessert with a candle for a daughters birthday exclamation

    We had an excellent meal in a lovely atmosphere with incredibly nice service. We were a group of six- we had salads and mozzarella sticks to start, and several pizzas and 2 pastas for our meal. It was too much food but everything was great. The pizzas are meant to be individual but are really too much food for one person. It was a very quiet night there so I can’t comment on the noise level when the place is full.

    Pizza was good (Toni's) perfect balance on the crust, service was also pretty good. Unfortunately, Fettucine was overcooked and our appetizer (burrata with caponata) was so-so (too much vinegar, veggies didn't had a taste because of vinegar). Think about Zia as an ok neighborhood joint. Don't expect high quality on all dishes.

    I booked this restaurant primarily because it was in the location I wanted, it looked lovely and it served brunch. When we got there, we were informed brunch was not being served, despite the fact that it stated it was on their website and the little chalkboard outside. The chef begrudgingly agreed to let us pick from one of 4 brunch items on the menu. The food was good and the restaurant is lovely.

    I made a leap to go here as we needed to feed and it was close to where we were staying for the night. Mediocre pizza at best and in NYC this is really hard to do. Barely brick oven. It was REALLY hot in the restaurant bordering on uncomfortable. Seemed like no AC controls at all. We were initially seated in the back by the pizza ovens and asked to move to the front of the house. Didn't help much and we could not leave soon enough for some cooler air. The chicken picatta looked boiled and was poked at vs. consumed. Overall if you need to eat, and have no choice, this place seems fine but there are much better options in the area if you have a hankering for affordable Italian grub.

    We were pleased with our experience. Food was ok and our server was great. One thing to note, menu prices are grossly outdated, dishes are easily $10+ more expensive than listed which was shocking since I had looked at the Open table menu when I reserved. You may want to update online.

    A perfect neighborhood restaurant feel. It was not well staffed, so we had to wait a bit for water/drink order to start, but being in no rush, this was a minor inconvenience. The staff was hustling and doing their best to accommodate all of the patrons. Food was delicious and came out soon after we ordered. As visitors to NYC, we enjoyed the low-key alternative to a hustle-bustle restaurant. We will definitely visit again.

    We visited Zia Maria during our weekend stay in New York. It didn't disappoint! Value for food was great, very authentic Italian. Service wasn't the best, but it was a busy Saturday evening so I didn't expect much else. Great atmosphere and location. Would visit again!

    I was pleasantly surprised by how good Zia Maria was. Pizza was about as delicious as I have ever had. We also had a frittata from the brunch menu that was yummy. Our meal was at an off hour and the manager took care of us himself and insured a lovely meal. Its a sleeper but perfect for a meal in Chelsea before a trip to the galleries or the Whitney.

    The food was absolutely fantastic. We got the Arancini, penne vodka and gnocchi bolognese. The complimentary bread was warm and tasted fresh. Everything was reasonably priced. I can't wait to go back to try more items from the menu. It felt like we were dining in a small town restaurant, service was friendly and quick.
