My favorite part about Za's is the build your own Pizza. My favorite build is: white sauce, feta, mozzarella, artichokes, and tomatoes. The Spinach Dip, Breadsticks, and Blackened Pasta are also some of my favorites. Many options for the Pescatarian or Vegetarian!

The pizza is good. They use very good ingredients. Unlike most places, they cook it enough. We got a large, which is 14 inches. That is kind of small for a large. I'm used to New York pizza places where a medium is 16 inches and a large is 18 inches. $12.99 for the large pizza with an additional $2.00 for each additional topping was a large Price tag. I ordered the pizza with extra sauce and with Italian sausage. I thought both were skimpy. Not only was it not extra sauce, it didn't seem like even a normal amount of sauce. They do put a reasonable amount of cheese without ordering extra. Overall, I give an A on quality and a C on value for a B average.

The food is always great here and the parking lot is usually packed because of it. The only thing I experience often here is slow service. It's hard to go to with a group from work and expect to be back within an hour. The greek salad with grilled chicken is AMAZING and the pizza is great too! The guys I work with complain that the price is too much for a salad (and for lunch it probably is.) In the end though the food is great!

I love thin crust pizza and when friends wanted to know where I wanted to go for a special birthday dinner, I insisted on Za's. I love the crust, the ingredients, and the final product.

'went for the food, which was recommended by Columbia friends, and - wow! we happened to be there on a Friday night with a superb musician/performer. Her music (and volume) were ideal for the space. By choice, we listened more than we talked! We would have paid a cover w/o hesitation (so she got a big tip). Her music made the evening really special and we'll come back to hear more. THANK YOU!
