Zia Restaurant

Fusion in Trastevere & Gianicolo

After cutting his teeth in the kitchens of a few of the culinary world’s most reputable names (think Georges Blanc and Gordon Ramsay), up-and-coming chef Antonio Ziantoni forges out on his own with solo venture Zia. The menu exquisitely mates Italian and French cuisine; pasta stuffed with blue cheese in an onion and clove broth and foie gras macarons shine.

Freshly baked breads and a complimentary amuse bouche whisked immediately to your table make you feel like Zia only has eyes for you. The three-course lunch menu is a steal, too.
