Zia’s is an Italian restaurant in Lakeview that’s primarily useful for two reasons: it has a large patio that’s great for groups, and a bottomless brunch special on the weekend. The food is average, but it's a fun neighborhood option as long as you know what you’re getting into. During the summer this place gets very crowded, and if you’re here for brunch, there’s a two-hour time limit.
