I wish TripAdvisor had half star ratings! My service was very good. Katelyn was very friendly and helpful. The "Shrimp penne and Vodka sauce" was definitely mediocre.

My job requires me to travel constantly and therefore to eat out constantly. Whenever I choose to eat at a new restaurant I usually try to find something on the menu that might be a challenge. Making a good Vodka sauce is a challenge. When it is done correctly it is fantastic. When Zia's did it last night it is a disappointment. All they did was take their Alfredo sauce, mix in a bit of tomato sauce and maybe the Chef whispered Vodka in the kitchen. What they need to do is take a trip to New York or to Las Vegas and visit Rao's and order their Penne Vodka. Ten orders of magnitude difference.

However, this is not New York nor Las Vegas it is Salisbury, MD. The restaurant has a nice menu, inexpensive prices and probably does the traditional Italian fare pretty well. The breadsticks were pretty good!

So, being in town for the NASCAR race, and sick and tired of dismal meals at yet another chain, we got brave and tried a stand alone. GOOD CALL!
at 6:35 p.m. we didn't have to stand in an hour line outside of OG... We were seated by a cheerful hostess and immediately met by the server. Ordered Bruschetta, $5.95 ... Toasted bread rounds and tasty fresh tomato basil balsamic...might have had another two or three rounds for the amount of tomato. Unlimited salad, and nice entrees. Visible management ... Bravo!

Casual atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices make this restaurant a must-visit, especially for groups of 4 or more. Servers are prompt and courteous.

I eat here with my wife at least 2 times a month and have never been disappointed. In a town full of steakhouses and chain restaurants this place is a breath of freash air. Half the reason i go here is the house salad with special house dressing. The other half is the Shrimp and Chicken Alfredo. I order it everytime i there. About the only con i have with the place is the restroom which is usually pretty nasty but other than that i love the service, food, and the prices are very resonable. They have a selection of wines and also have a bar for all other alcohol needs. Check it out if your in town, you won't be disappointed.

Great baked Ziti! Breadsticks are the best. House salad is always fresh with great house dressing. Support local restaurants.
