Arrived on a Wednesday night, not very busy. First of all asked if we had any preference in seating. Um, they got rid of smoking/non-smoking years ago and I don't see a patio. Got sat by the door since we didn't express a preference. Even...More

We had been to their "Sister restaurant" Straw Dogs on River Road before. Zona 78 is a different concept, much more upscale in both decor and menu. I had the pasta Milano with shrimp which was excellent.

Located in a strip mall, but has great local reviews, with many awards. SUPER spaghetti & meatballs. Plan to take some home, due to the large portions

We finally decided to try this place, because we wanted to try something new for us after reading good reviews and hearing from friends about their experiences here. It was just an average outing to us. Noise level was high, especially for a Wed. night....More
