Close and excellent

Again immediately across the street from the University Hotel. Very sophisticated for a mid-western university town. Excellent Mediterranean menu, great service and nice ambiance.

This review is coming from someone who is a picky eater... When I heard Laziza was Mediterranean, I was a little hesitant. I did not expect this to become my new favorite restaurant! I've been there a few times, and what I have tried so far are the chicken shawarma, shish tawook, hummus, and fries. Everything has been delish. The... More

I have been to Laziza multiple times. On my most recent visit, the restaurant was very quiet and the food was average. The service was not quite as attentive as you might expect based on the number of patrons. I was disappointed that the first two items I attempted to order were not available; this made the options for vegetarian... More

Second time visiting. Despite having a reservation, it took our waiter one hour before we had our drinks and even ordered dinner. It took another 45minutes before appetizers and salads arrived to the table. After 2.5 hours we asked for the check to speed dinner along and that took 30 minutes to receive. All of the food was good but... More

Nice decor, bar area. Upscale restaurant, good for a nice evening out. Service excellent, owner came out to explain Vegan options to my daughter. Food was very good.

If you live in Northeast Ohio or have the chance to visit CLE, this could become a perennial favorite restaurant. To begin, hats off to Kent, Ohio for their multimillion dollar downtown makeover, for which Laziza is one of the cool, trendy new places to dine. It is a beautiful space, warm and well designed with lofty heights and beautiful... More

This is a wonderful establishment run by the nicest people! We ate there in a rush one day and folks did the best the could to accommodate us. We had decided to go there for our next day's lunch and were able to work with the WONDERFUL owner to pre-order our lunch tapas-style. A dozen or so of us were... More

Excellent. Everything is fresh. Great atmosphere, you can go on a date or family event. It will not break the bank. Love this place when I want an excellent meal but trying to be healthy

Having a grandma that made kibbee for me as a child, I have always compared hers to any other. The first time I tried it at Laziza, I had to order more! And it's not just the kibbee, all of the dishes I have tried at Laziza have been great. I have never had a disappointing meal there. Another one... More

Even with a new waiter things went well. The only glitch was having to ask for bread with our salad. Wife had seafood pesto pasta and loved it as much this second time. This was my first steak here and it was perfect. We had a nice romantic dinner after they dimmed the lighting. Was the perfect birthday night out... More
