We had the Christmas menu which proved good value. I chose prosciutto on toasted bread with salad and mozzarella which was pleasant enough though somewhat dry. This was followed by a veal wrapped in prosciutto (silly really) with a butter and lemon sauce, oven potatoes and fresh brocoli sprouts. This was delicious though the meat was overcooked. As for the... More

Just had a great meal at Zaza - in a large party and we had the set Christmas party meal which was very good and efficiently served. Excellent choices and all beautifully cooked.

Decent food and service and a fun night was had. Not anything beyond good but value for money. Staff could have been a little more involved with us, lights could have been a little less bright. Would go again but only in turn if that makes sense. There are too many good restaurants around now

We visited Zaza in St Albans on the recommendation of a friend who had been to the one in Harpenden. Unfortunately, our experience of the restaurant was terrible. We found the food to be bland and well below average but the thing that made the whole experience worse for us was the poor service! It was the worst service that... More

Good spacious interior, relaxed lighting and not surprisingly a lovely ambience. We had olives to nibble on. Mains were roasted seabass with pesto dressing and new potatoes. Went nicely with a crisp white wine - Gavi di Gavi. They were a slow in bringing it but worth the wait. Finished with a tirimasu and coffee. A very happy and satisfying... More

excellent service and delicious food, there is a good variety of dishes on the menu. we love it here and come often but I would say its not great if youre in a rush as they do sometimes keep you waiting for your food. also can get stuffy in there sometimes.
