My visit was takeout only but I have to say that the three staff members I dealt with while waiting were very friendly and helpful. The pizza is very good with very fresh ingredients but they were right next to sparse. I thought that for the price there would be a lot more of the toppings. The crust met my... More

Fortunately the Indian place next-door was closed when we were looking for a late afternoon lunch (at 2:00pm), because that led us to try this fantastic little pizza place. They have a great selection of very different individual pizzas with unusual toppings. There was truly something for everyone, i.e. our eleven-year-old thought the Kraft diner on pizza was great.

Thanks for the review James! Glad you stumbled upon our little pizza place! The weather can be a little crazy here in Ottawa if you are ever cold or too warm just let our staff know and they will do their best to accommodate! We also have a menu redesign happening this summer (with some new pizzas too) so hopefully... More

It seems difficult to find nice varieties of thin crust pizza in Ottawa but ZaZaZa delivers with a wide variety of selections which you can alter to taste. The setting is quaint and in a residential neighbourhood gives it a nice cozy feeling. Very friendly accommodating staff. Overall very impressed with our first visit there. We'll be coming back.

We can't wait to have you back! Have you tried all three crusts yet? We offer Dusted Cornmeal (a white crust), Honey & Oat (whole wheat) and even a Gluten Free option! I guarantee our Gluten Free curst will BLOW you away! I do not have any sensitivity for Gluten but sometimes I choose this crust just for the yummy... More

We have been to both ZaZaZa locations in Ottawa. Both times we have had great pizza. The last time we went however , our service was pretty poor. No one was present at the front door , even though there were only 2 other tables full in the restaurant. We waited what we felt like was a reasonable amount of... More

The goat cheese balls were mediocre and the Pizza's were below par, to be honest, my wife's pizza was disgusting...and I rarely I repeat rarely use this word.It was too oily, the tomatoes were bland and all the Pizza's we ordered felt they were re heated....the Lemonade was over priced and doesn't deserve to be called fresh squeezed.

Really good thin crust pizza. Salads are also very good. Make sure to try the homemade oil with your crust! The only downfall at Putman location is the size, it is very small inside. If taking out, this aspect will not pose an issue for you.

Glad you love our house made spicy oil! Our Beechwood location is a little cozy! If you prefer a little more elbow room be sure to check out our Glebe location at (915 Bank) or our newest location in Hintonburg (1079 Wellington West)! All locations do takeout too! More

We went as a large family group after Disney on Ice. It's a small location so we took up the majority of the place. The food was fantastic. I love gourmet pizza's with different types of toppings on them. The goat cheese balls as an appetizer were amazing. If you love pizza you need to try this place!

I am very disappointed with the service I received this week and the disparity in overall atmosphere between the Hinterburg location and The Glebe location. I visited The Glebe location earlier this week during its “Beat the Clock” promotion and was very, very sadden by the treatment of the server upon our table and the surrounding tables.

We got Zazaza take-out as a request for my 10-year-olod niece's birthday dinner. It was fantastic. All the pizzas we chose were very tasty. I will definitely go back and maybe try the restaurant next time.
