Italian
Over two decades ago we were inspired to create a restaurant that welcomes, entertains and nourishes our customers the Italian way, like family. Known to the locals as Zia's, this quaint neighborhood restaurant is located just blocks from the Chesapeake Bay, nestled in the heart of Chic's Beach. Specializing in authentic Italian cuisine, the chalkboard menu features an array of flavorful chicken, veal, beef and seafood dishes made with the freshest ingredients. Weekly additions of seasonal fair, featured wines, and homemade desserts bolster more traditional menu selections. Family and friends enjoy casual dining with great food, a well rounded wine list, and specialty martinis at an excellent value. Salute!

    Olive oil on table was bitter! Linguine w/ red clam sauce was good but spicier than I remember. Good / OK dinner. Used to be great at original location. A bit disappointed. Zia Marie’s was a mandatory stop for us - not so much anymore…

    The noise level was very uncomfortable. There were six of us at our table and we all loved the food, but the noise will prevent us from returning.

    I made reservations for five people. I was seated immediately, but the table was very tight for five people. I asked if we could move to a slightly larger table, but was told the other tables already had been reserved. The noise level was way too loud in my opinion. I typically like a quiet setting where I can talk and catch up with family and friends. It was very difficult talking to the other people at our table. Service was good ,but not outstanding. The food quality was good ,but not memorable. I would come back again for dinner , but I am not anxious to go back right away.

    First time at Zia Marie, and unfortunately, probably the last. The one menu we received had to be shared by all. Had to request additional menus. We couldn’t read the chalkboard because it was either too far away or we had to strain our necks to read. There are no selection descriptions on the menu. Made it extremely difficult for guests who have allergies or dislikes. Appetizer arrived cold, food was very bland and the sauces were watery, not at all what we expected from a restaurant that had good reviews. We could not conduct any conversation because the noise was so loud, especially around the bar area. Maybe because it’s tourist season but we intentionally went early. Very disappointed.

    Worse dinner experience ever and we eat out constantly. Didn’t even get out drinks until after our appetizers. The noise level was like nothing I have ever experienced. I know a lot of restaurants are loud now, but this was unbelievable. You know it’s bad when you leave and the youngest member in the group who is three years old says, “Finally, , peace and quiet!”

    First off, we are customers for years and loved the Chick’s Beach location. The new venue is awesome! The food is still amazing!! The noise level and acoustics in the building is very poor.. Unfortunately this isn’t the facility to enjoy a conversational dinner with family and friends without yelling across the table. Hopefully this issue can be resolved.

    Veal marsala was delicious! Ordered extra sauce/mushrooms and was well worth it! Chicken parmigiana was excellent as was the lightly breaded, and perfectly cooked calamari. BONUS- Monday is 1/2 price bottle of wine night ! Our server was very attentive and delightful, as was the hostess team. Trying to decide which of my favorite restaurants I will kick to the curb in favor of Zia Marie.

    Visited their new location on W . Great Neck/ Shore Dr. and the food is just as wonderfully delicious. As usual the portions were plentiful and the service top notch. The strawberry burrata salad was unbelievable!! If you haven't eaten here , you're missing out.

    Crazy loud in there and the staff overall seems overwhelmed. We got lucky and had a good waitress but I have a feeling that wasn’t the case for everyone. The hostess sprayed windex on the table next to us right onto the cheese, oil and vinegar. I can only assume she did that to every other table as well. Just a meh experience and wouldn’t go back.

    Food was great as usual, but service was a little slow. We saw other diners who cam in after we did get served before we did, but once bringing it to the attention of our waitress, we were quickly taken care of. We love Zia's!!!

    I would recommend the Shrimp Diablo - quite delicious. I was extremely disappointed with my favorite veal saltimbocca. The veal was thick and the entire dish was bland -nothing like it used to be.

    We walked over looking forward to our first time in the new location. Very disappointing….the service was mediocre, the salad was very good, but six of us said our entrees were unexpectedly not great. The noise is too loud to enjoy or hear your dinner partners. Our server could barely hear us. Not at all the experience of a lovely Italian restaurant…no ambience. We’ll try again, as we want our local places to thrive, however if the noise problem isn’t taken care of we we won’t continue to go back. The old location was much better all around.

    The food is outstanding and not over priced. The service was just okay. Unfortunately, there are too complaints. The first, they don’t have blinds on the windows! When the sun was setting it was blinding. An entire section of people had to move their chairs or change sides of the booths. The second is the noise level. This building has had the same problem well before Zia Marie moved in but it makes it very difficult to hold a conversation.

    It took 52 minutes to get our food from ordering. One dish look like I didn’t sitting under the briiler waiting for the other two dishes to be finished. Eggplant lasagna and chicken Parm all OK. Sauce was a little spicier than usual staff was pleasant no organization. Everybody seem to be doing everything and none of it very well . Third time trying and just not the same since they moved to the great neck corridor. Check your prices before you leave they don’t match what the menu says

    Always loved the food but the noise level is the loudest of any restaurant in the area. The acoustics is something they should take seriously. We could not hear our guests talking at all. Had to ask them to repeat what they said way too many times and I have perfect hearing! Ask you staff if they have had any noise level complaints. Hope you fix this then you will get a lot more 5 stars!

    New location not nearly as good as the old one. Used to be a place you felt you had found. Now it's an old Mexican food hall refurbished with Italian prints on the wall. Worst of all it is REALLY LOUD! They need to add curtains, carpets, anything to bring them noise level down. Finally, the food was very good but we felt rushed. Our entire dinner experience was 30 minutes. Our order came out 3 mins after it was taken and they wait staff seemed in a hurry for us to leave. On a positive note, the food was very good
