We like to eat here for the atmosphere, service and food. Get here early as it fills up. Their pizza is really good. Their pasta is great, fresh! Service can be a tad slow, but they are busy and it's not your basic pizza joint.

My daughter suggested this restaurant while my wife and I were visiting for dinner. It began poorly when three different employees passed by without acknowledging us. We were then seated and our drinks were brought quickly; however, that was the last thing that was served quickly. Our drink glasses remained empty, our appetizer came only minutes before our entrees and we were only checked on a couple of times. We asked for extra thin crust on our pizza and it was not even close to what other brick oven pizzerias are able to do. I ordered the zucchini pasta from the seasonal menu and it was maybe made with one zucchini. Unfortunately, this was not an enjoyable way to spend our hard earned money.

Used to meet here for lunch with friends, it was good for many years. It's the second time we have tried it lately. Server was non caring and improperly dressed. The food was warm not hot!

We were in from out of town and had reservations. Were seated promtly and loved the atmosphere at the long table in the bar area. Food was really good but a couple of our orders were messed up and the service was slow to get food and no refills on beverages.

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 was with my drink refills. The waitress never came to even ask us if we wanted one. I would eat here again.
