I ate at Za's for the first time recently with my cousins. We each ordered an individual 8" pizza. I ordered the Napa which includes fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, prosciutto, fresh basil, and arugula tossed with lemon juice, and Crescent Olive extra-virgin olive oil. It was delicious. The staff was friendly and we were seated quickly. The only issue I had... More

This was our first time at Za's Brick Oven Pizza, and we will definitely return when in the area again. We really liked their options with a build-your-own style. The only mistake I made was to think an 8 inch pizza would not be enough for me and ordered a 14 inch pizza - not next time. The 8 inch... More

Went there for a group lunch, I was first to arrive and last to eat. Folks were leaving and I was getting a dish I ordered. Took an hour and a half to get two very sad little dishes. Wouldn't have been worth a five minute wait. The seasonal menu offered a tomato avocado caprese salad. Said heirloom tomatoes, avocado,... More

We were staying the night in Columbia South Carolina en-route to Orlando Florida. We did a quick search of restaurants close to our hotel and found this gem. What an amazing atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and prompt. They appeared to be very busy from the outside but we were seated immediately. They had live entertainment and the food... More

The food here is pretty decent and very trust worthy. I prefer to come here for desert- French silk pie is unlike anything I've ever had! So good! Wait staff is incredibly nice and very good customer service

Hostess was more than willing to spend time with me on the phone to alert me to specials. They happily made appropriate substitutions for us on request. Food was delicious and healthy. Everything was ready when I went to pick up. Delightful custom service from Maddie, We will certainly be back

I have eaten at Za's over the last many years. When I moved away and would visit Cola, I would stop and eat at Za's. The wait staff always provided quality service and the pizza was always exceptional. I worked pizza and restaurants for many years and love their food!

Had a group dinner here on a Friday night in their adjoining party room. They served buffet style 3 different salads and various pizzas. The artichoke dip with accompanying mini bread was good, the Greek salad was good, but the pizza was only mediocre. Tried 3 different types and nothing outstanding.

A group of us ate at Za's last night. My husband and I split the Pear/Chicken Salad and a pizza. Both were outstanding! Za's uses all fresh, local ingredients and it's apparent in the quality of their dishes. I can't wait to return!

It's back and OK brick oven pizza. We had a veggie pizza and a calzone. Both were OK, Nothing was outstanding or great. Better than some of the chain pizza places but don't rush to come here. I'm on the fence as far as will I return. Probably not.
