I LOVE THIS PLACE!!

Quaint, local restaurant that the parents and kids would love. Sophisticated, yet comfortable enough to bring the kids. Where else can you have great pizza, fabulous wine, pasta, great music... Unless you go to Italy...

One of our dear friends that owns to tinderbox Vino 100 in Alpharetta turned us on to this neighborhood gem. The lasagna noodles are perfect not dense, the ricotta and mozzarella were fresh and the sauce a B+, but I am a picky Italian from NY so for most people it's an A. The service outstanding and wine list good.... More

Zola is consistently good and has a varied menu. The last time we were there, service was a bit slow but we were pleased overall.

Fantastic find in Alpharetta for authentic Italian cuisine. I am extremely hesitant to dine out for Italian because I am normally disappointed in the food, BUT not here. We arrived for an early dinner and were the first table to be seated but by the time we left, the restaurant was full. The waiter was very knowledgeable and described the... More

We had reservations on Valentine's day at 7:30 PM - we arrived right on time - and we were seated at our table in a minute or two. The hostess was efficient but very impersonal. She was checking out other reservations on her tablet and didn't even make too much of an eye contact with us. Anyway, we weren't going... More

Visited this restaurant with a group of six. Warmly welcomed by the maitre d, and treated to a wonderful meal. All six had some thing different, and each thought that they had made a great choice. Really interesting wine list, and a well informed host in respect of the wine options. This was my first visit, and Zola will be... More

Went with some friends on Xmas eve and thought the waiter was attentive and explained everything so well and made excellent recommendations! There was nothing that wasn't executed properly. We had calamari, soup, burrata, lasagna, chicken cacciatore, etc... all delicious. Also the peach and pineapple infused kettle one vodka was divine! Definitely recommend. Oh and the cheesecake we got to... More

Once I found the place nestled where no one can see it from the road, I later realized that I should not have tried so hard. The mussels and calamari were horrendous! Over-cooked and chewy and not even hot. They brought them to the kitchen and returned the same overcooked dish that they put in the oven. What a joke!... More

This was by far the best restaurant experience I have ever had. Although the location had a private party going on when we arrived, they accommodated our party of 11 instantly and gave us the best service ever! The Osso Bucco was succulent! All of the food was presented beautifully and was very flavorful. No conversation during the meal because... More

The Place: adorable neighborhood place that is easily a staple in the community. The Service: awesome! Warm, friendly & very personable. Makes ya wanna come back I started with a home made Pasta Fagioli soup: Ourstanding! It's an apparent staple of the place.
