Zach's is a pleasant and comfortable restaurant in Studio City. The food is well prepared, tasty and the portions are large enough to take some home. Service if not overly friendly (which is fine with me) is efficient. The cuisine is primarily Italian/American with a good selection. The Lasagne with goat cheese is amazing. And as mentioned by the previous... More

We arrived very early for dinner, and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves (at least that is the way we felt). Very nice, friendly staff ... all of them. We found Zach's by Googling seafood restaurant. We actually found an Italian Restaurant, and we also found great food. And plenty of it, we didn't have room for dessert, but... More

I have lived in the neighborhood for 17 years, have driven past this place millions of times, but never paid attention. Until today. After googling "Italian food" and "Studio City," I came up with Zachs, and off we went. The restaurant was mostly empty as it was 2:30 pm. That was the first good sign. I ordered a bowl of... More

Nice romantic little restaurant. Nice to sit outside if the weather's warm enough. The free garlic cheese rolls are super delicious,but you have to control yourself or you won't have room from your meal.

This place is great for Catering Events and lunches. I rarely eat at the restaurant, but the catering is good. Many places offer good Italian food, but I like the service that Matt, Al, and the staff provide. Really nice people, and staff that will work with you on all Catering events.

I love coming here for the lunch speical. Unlike other lunch menus they have a few meal options to choose from, they offer meals with soup and salad or just an entree for under $10. I also really enjoy the cheese rolls!!

I love going to "Mom and Pop" restaurants, supporting locals feels good. Plus, the food and service is usually better. This was definitely the case with Zach's. I had the sea bass & my friend had the "faux" chicken parmesean, which was really good!
