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!

This place is just as good as it was 15 years ago. The Whitefish is fantastic and the linguine with seafood is a superb dish. Always a gem!

It had been awhile since we dined in downtown St. Charles so we decided to try ZaZa's one summer's evening recently. When we arrived the dining area was filled, we did not have a reservation and there was at least a 45 minute wait but outside seating was open so we opted for a table on the patio. Passing through...

The food was good and very large portions. The salads were excellent. However, it was extremely loud in the restaurant and it was difficult to even talk to the person seated next to me. The waitress seemed to try and rush us through dinner. I felt like we were in a fast food restaurant. My advice would be to get... More

The menu and service are outstanding. A little pricey but not your usual Italian fare. Very fresh and good portions.

Not from the area (Bloomingdale) we picked this place hoping it was unique and not like other franchise restaurants. The waiter was outstanding. He went out of his way to make our experience wonderful! The special was a 16 oz. Ribeye which was the best steak I had ever had! Cinnamon Appletini was awesome, dessert was great, and overall I...
