Love the pizza!

Such good pizza, takes a little while to get your food but that's because its fresh made and good food takes time! The pizza sauce has great flavor and all the extra toppings aren't even needed.

Pizza is great. Deep dish is the only one I order with chicken. Wait is 30 to 45 minutes to eat or pick up take out. Typical Italian menu all good.

Zachary's pizza has been a consistent part of my family's life because it is always good and satisfying, especially the deep dish spinach and mushroom. The tomato sauce is great, chunky and full of flavor. There have been many restaurants in Oakland and Berkeley that come and go but this place always draws a crowd and has for many years.... More

It does not match a classic thin crust Italian Pizza but it is always a fun dish to have on days where calories counting is not a concern...

I love this place! My favorite pizza to order is a deep-dish, spinach and mushroom pizza. As is it's delicious, but I usually add sausage and black olives to this pizza. The restaurant can be crowded, so if you're not comfortable moving about a tight seating area (or if you want a quiet place) you might want to order takeout.... More

it's popularity is a mystery to some and others swear by it. the tomatoes seem to be canned and the pizzas are salty. the sausage and cheese are good. strangely rockridge doesn't have an outstanding pizza parlor at the moment.

Very Good Deep Dish Pizza for the Price, I have had Deep Dish pizza Pie's in Chicago while on Trip, wanted to see if a place in California could replicate. Zachary's in Oakland did not disappoint.

Even though the crowds were insane outside this place everytime we passed it, even the perfect record my Oakland friend had with recommendations almost didn't get us in the door. Thank you David! We went for the deep dish though we are California's with no knowledge of such a thing and loved it. Oakland, with the proper guide, has made... More

Recommendations of friends sent us to Zachary's. Very busy place full of families and everyone else there for pizza on College Ave. We ordered the thin crust pizza and while it was thinner than the Chicago style, it wasn't as thin as NY style pizza. Very tasty and then service is very good for a busy place.
