Tasty Food and Chill Atmosphere

I love this place when it comes to being at a chill but classy place. The food - I can only talk about the pizza - is delicious! I love this pizza because the servings are always large and they pile on the cheese! The service has always been great every time I have gone... in fact, I cannot... read more

Very friendly, trendy Italian hot-spot in the entertainment alley. We just went for a late desert so can't comment on the food, but our server was great and so were the cannolis. Tried to go back for lunch on Saturday afternoon but they weren't open yet. Definitely would try it for a meal.

Terrible pizza, manager admitted that they use frozen veggies on their pizza because it's cost effective, his exact words. Waiter tried to be very helpful manager was a jerk.

I went with a large group on Sunday night and it was like being transported back to my Nona's kitchen as a kid. There's an amazing energy coursing through the place that is amplified by the open air kitchen. I had the sea food pasta and was blown away. Fresh ingredients mix together to create a depth of flavor that... More

We had salads for lunch and they were delicious. Service was great, the pepper grinder was huge and the prices were reasonable. Parking, now that's a different story.

Good food, lots of interesting beer selection. Decor was a nice blend of old and modern building. Our server was not very cheerful however.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Sa-Za and couldn't help but notice how dedicated and hardworking the young staff was. They were hustling! We enjoyed the light, airy breadsticks, a shared salad, Grandma's smashed meatball pizza and another pasta dish. Huge portions so plenty to take home. Crowded with happy locals, a great atmosphere.

Sa-za produces some pretty nice Southern Italian fare. My wife and I did not get to try the pizza, but everything else we had was very good. The portion sizes are also large, so you will not go home hungry. I particularly enjoyed the "Eggs in Purgatory" for an appetizer. For our entrees I went for something more on the... More

This is the second time I've been here. First time was lunch and we got single slices of pizza and it was good. This time we were there for dinner. Service was attentive but pizza was just ok. Ours had sautéed spinach on it and it was clearly frozen spinach which does not have a good flavor. Dessert was cheesecake... More

We went this evening for dinner about 8:45pm. It started well, our waiter was friendly, food and wine delicious then all the other customers left.... Suddenly the mood changed, despite it being 9:30 they were cleaning all around us, putting chairs up on tables, and despite us being only halfway through our meal offered to box it up for us....
