Downtown Flavor!

While attending a convention in Montgomery it was nice to see a variety of restaurants downtown. Saza was my choice for great food and as close to authentic I had in a long time! The food and service was great! I felt like I was in a New York eatery. Great taste and flavor! Salud Saza!

This is my favorite restaurant downtown (way better than Central, in case you're wondering). The pizza is excellent, and the cocktail selection is vast, the Novocaine being my personal favorite. Service is always good - attentive and helpful without being intrusive or rushing you out the door. I was just here again recently and already want to go back.

Stopped here after a blues cruise riverboat ride on the alabama river. Nice atmosphere , great service and I enjoyed angel hair pasta with san marzano sauce. Great lightly creamy filled cannollis.

We went there as a group is seven (two families with kids). The pizzas are yummy and large (four adults couldn't finish two). The meatball pizza is great if you love meatball subs, which we do. The sauce is delicious! The kids' menu has good-size portions. Our child loved the spaghetti. This is a great place to come for a... More

It was a nice place for lunch and the service was good. The food was just ok. We had the cheese garlic bread and I had the ravioli. It was a little heavy on the garlic and oil for my taste though.

The food was great. The wait staff was awesome. My waitress was very friendly and helpful since I had never been to the restaurant before.

Visiting Montgomery for a conference and went looking for interesting food within walking distance. Found Sa-ZA and gave it a try. I was initially a little leery as it looked a bit like a food court in a mall, but the reviews were good and I was in the mood for Italian. It was a good meal. Not great, but... More

In the few times that i've been there i've always been pleased. the food has been great, the service honestly has it's moments, but also, what restaurant doesn't? One of my favorite things is the Sunday Sauce...its simply amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone...that or the lasagna...but you have to get there early for that one, it tends to... More
