Reasonable noise level in an open seating format, the price was good for the food/portions, and the food itself was wonderful. I had the chicken piccata and it was great!

Wish I had gotten the pizza. Got the salmon and it was not cooked all the way, and had a weird spice rub on top. Tasted lemony, although it also came with a lemon. Potatoes were "escalloped" but that meant sliced and.....I'm not sure, baked? Oily with lots of pepper. Salmon portion was large. Kind of expensive for what you... More

The pizza was very good. Got the gyro pizza. Others in our party got the meatballs and they were hard and no flavor. The garlic bread lacked garlic. The waitress was nice. It bothered me that they had Pepsi in the south. No coke, come on. I might go back if there was nothing else to try and just get... More

We came here with two of our friends for dinner, and we had a great time. The noise level in the restaurant was loud, but bearable considering the style of restaurant it is. We ordered the Grandma's Smashed Best Meatballs Pizza and our friends ordered the Pizza Paillard. Both pizzas were delicious, but I preferred the Grandma's more. I've also... More

Me and my husband came here without a reservation on a Friday night and were seated almost straight away. Our waitress was friendly and turned out she was German born like my husband! The main courses are slightly pricey for Italian food so we went for a pizza to share. They are massive and we had to take a few... More

If you want to kick your pizza up a notch, visit Sa-za in the downtown riverwalk area. They do traditional pizzas but its their use of special herbs, seasonings and meats that make some of them the best I've every tasted.

Wanted to experience what all the hype was about. The food was good, but you can tell they rush to get it out to the customer, not as elegantly served as it is described on the menu. Reservations are recommended, by the front door, not the web sight or any where else, so make reservations or you will be waiting.... More

Excellent food. It was worth the short wait for a table. The food was just so very good. Highly recommend this place.

Party of at least 15. I ordered a small pizza with the toppings I wanted, and when I got my check it ended up being a $40 pizza. It was as tasty as most fresh pizzas can be, but nothing to rave about. My favorite part of pizza the crust and Sa Za's was tough and not fluffy. I asked... More

Who knew that some of the best pasta sauces in America can be found in the heart of tiny downtown Montgomery Alabama? You know how most Italian restaurants (even the great ones) rest on their laurels and chug along recycling two or three good sauces (usually a marinara, a cream based and a garlic & olive oil based) for an...
