I get to stay in St Charles a few times a year for work and I do not miss an opportunity to eat at ZaZa's. Both their White Fish and Salmon are absolutely delicious. Price is a little high, but you get your money's worth

We arrived in St Charles on a cold and damp Sept day and were hungry! Parked the car, saw ZaZa's was open at 2.45pm and dived in. What a superb meal - the black and blue filet was perfect and my wife loved her white fish in a lemon sauce. Excellent service - brilliant! Great value also.

My husband and I go to Zazas at least three times a month. The stuffed clams and whitefish are our favorites, but we have tried everything on menu. Never have we been disappointed. They also have a great wine and martini selection. A must if you are in Saint Charles.

We have been to Zaza's many times before & have always been satisfied- This time, we had a reservation on a Tuesday evening to celebrate our anniversary with a romantic dinner & had told them that it was our anniversary- we were greeted by a less than welcome hostess- she proceeded to wind us past several empty tables into the...

We had 17 friends and family for my wife's birthday celebration at ZaZa's on August 23rd. It was a resounding success. The food, wine and drinks were the best and the service was fantastic. Scott, the manager, had everything coordinated to a tee and Genevieve had the best time. Thanks to all the staff at ZaZa's.

We are here in late August with a large group. The place was packed and the service was good considering how busy they were. I had a Cesar salad and the special mahi mahi. The fish was very good and tasted fresh. My wife had the rigatoni in a cream sauce and said it was very good. Not alot of... More

I have two main criteria for Italian restaurants. Real simple. Don't bring me water sauce at the bottom of my dish and cook the pasta al dente. Most so called "authentic" Italian Restaurants have no clue what that means or how to cook pasta. Both were met to my satisfaction at ZaZa's. We were running a little late, I called,... More

Love this place! Tucked in the heart of downtown St. Charles, this place offers a great authentic Italian fare. I recommend the ravioli and bruschetta Romano. The staff is great and very attentive. Will return!

If you are looking for authentic Italian food, you should try Zazas, and when the weather is nice, ask for outdoor seating. Zazas has great specials including the Swordfish (during the Summer) on Fridays, which is to die for! We love the pasta offerings and our children love eating here too!
