Late Night Stop

We stopped in late night on a Saturday evening to grab a bite to eat. Most of the other restaurants in Kent were closed and Laziza was recommended to us by another restaurateur (getting ready to close for the evening). There is outdoor seating on the street side of the restaurant, however, we... read more

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Laziza in Kent, Ohio. The food was delicious, the atmosphere from casual to formal at your choice, and the atmosphere and location were excellent.

Meal was fantastic. There was 8 of us that came in yesterday on a Saturday for lunch. It was not busy, about three other tables were only full in the whole place. It was a while we waited for our food so we weren't happy about that. They didn't bring out all the dishes at once so it wasn't to... More

Good service, varied menu and central location. Seemed to be well used by the locals so we went in and found out why.

This restaurant has an upscale interior, but they put paper on the white tablecloths. Candles are on the tables, but they remain unlit. Servers are very friendly, but very slow and inattentive. Menu descriptions sound great, but the food is just ok. See a pattern? There were specials on weekdays, and they had a few craft beers on draft. Full... More

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.
