The Big Cheese created ZaZaZa in 2010 on an infamous little corner in New Edinburg. Tired of "Ho Hum" pizza, he envisioned churning fresh batches of dough, brewing yummy sauces from scratch, whole fresh toppings, and the best cheeses around! He dreamed of a stage for talented young Chefs to present "Pizza with Pizazz" in an artistic setting all served with genuine hospitality at the core. The results are now in...And the reviews are superb. Thanks Ottawa for making ZaZaZa your neighbourhood pizza joint...With pizazz.

Some Kinda Good Pizza !

In the original location of The Works and channeling some of The Works menu quirkiness, this is a pizza lovers nirvana. Very limited seating but lots of take out action. A varied menu of original 12 inch pizzas offers something for every taste. Thin crusts in three choices.This is our new favourite... read more

Went with the family back in July and they have great gourmet pizza, great service and the atmosphere very enjoyable. You can also make reservations at the last minute.

This appears to be THE place for superior and unusual pizzas. We have only used them for take-out, but they have a nice area for serving people who come in to eat. However the seating area is not large. One benefit of eating in is that they have local craft beers available, but these cannot be purchased to take out.... More

It's small restaurant that you need to know, should you want to experience other kinds of special pizza or side dish. An entree of sweet potatoes is served in a pink running shoes, good old fashion bottles of Coke, absolutely delicious chicken wings and tons of pizza to chose from. The staff is very nice. I'm quite happy we found... More

Had been to ZaZaZa' on Beechwood in Ottawa years ago and really enjoyed the pizza as it had a great and different crust with a choice of unique toppings. This time same thing but quality was much less. All was less appetizing, less tasty and more oily. A little smaller than a normal "medium" pizza and much thinner we still... More

This past weekend (June 19th-21st) a few friends and I embarked on a long journey from just outside Toronto to a music festival in Quebec about a 6ish hour drive. Exhausted, on the way home we decided to stop at Za Za Za in Hintonburg. A fantastic pizzeria I will never forget and miss very dearly. Walking in to the... More

We came here with a friend who lives near this pizzeria as it's located outside the downtown area. It's a small restaurant but pizzas are delicious. We ordered a small pizza for each of us and we shared. There's a good wine and beer list on the menu. Don't miss it if you're in the neighbourhood. Not pricy at all.

I wrote a review of ZaZaZa earlier this year praising the pizza but commenting on the staff noise from the open kitchen. All better! The background music is a little louder but not too loud and the selections are great. The room is small and overhearing chatter is unavoidable but the staff are professional. I could see them talk but... More

I've been here several times and have always had a great experience. The food is delicious, the service is excellent, and I love the beer selection. Recently though, they managed to make things even better by adding a vegan cheese option to the menu. Since my husband is vegan and so are a few of my friends, this is incredible... More
