Grazie

Have known about this place for years, but this was our first time here. Our apologies to ZA for waiting so long. We had a pleasant meal in this semi casual atmosphere. I say semi casual because you will feel as comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, as you will in shirt and tie. Very nice meal and... read more

Don't miss stopping at Za when you travel through Forrest Lake. Hand made sauces, pastas, and more! A delicious Italian experience with a beautiful lake view. My favorite is the mushroom ravioli.

No matter what you order at ZA's, you're going to love it. I work next door at Keller Williams as a real estate agent so from time to time I'll pop in for some lunch--its always great! They also do take out orders which is handy. I happen to love the cheese tortellini but several of my friends and family... More

Having lived in Forest Lake for three years now I am disappointed I did not discover ZA earlier. I have had both pizza and pasta: both are phenomenal. The ingredients and sauce are balanced and fresh. The cheese bread is out of this world.

My wife and I love this place Get the bianco chicken zachos they have four home made chips and are fantastic. The Slurp sandwiches are so good you'll crave them every 30 days. See you there.

Za's makes great homeade pizza. Loaded with whole pieces of delicious ingredients! Their salads are also good! The view is very nice, looking out at the lake. Service was also great!

We didn't stop for dinner or lunch. We stopped for an appetizer and adult beverages. Cute place. Reasonably priced. Both family and couples friendly. They offer a wide variety of choices and creativity from traditional Calamari to the "Thai-One-On" salad, Pesto Cream Fettuccine and Portobello Ravioli to heart healthy whole wheat pizzas, steaks, and gourmet burgers. There is also an... More

The best. Most often enjoy the beef tenderloin but tonight was looking for something chicken and savored the taste of this marsala sauce. Highly recommended.

My first and last dining experience at Za's was horrible. Go there if you want to be ignored and overpay for bad food. They say they make MN pizza and pasta, must be because it was nothing like Italian.

We have recently moved into the area, and have found most restaurants serve average food at best. Usually huge portions of mediocre food. Za was a pleasant surprise! The service was friendly and the food was nice. I had butternut squash ravioli, and it was delicious. The lasagne came in a bread bowl, which was different, but my husband deemed... More
