I've been here about 20 times in the past four years. I like the modern setup (including the outdoor seating), the beer selection is good and the pizza is good (although I really would like to see the menu updated). It's a good place to bring friends or colleagues after work.

Za's offers a range of creative 10" pizzas, drinks and coffee. We had a goat cheese and shiitake mushroom pizza, which was delicious, and the the chorizo and pickle pizza which was unusual but just as delicious. Decaf Latte's were great, but a little small. We paid about $43 for lunch for two. The room itself is a little blah.... More

We loved the creative and fresh ingredients on the pizzas. Mac and cheese was exceptional. Also, the spiced pecan appetizer was quite tasty and a good value (loads of pecans). Wine is reasonably priced and the pours are very generous (good if you are walking back to your hotel).

Nice and ample seating, good choice of drinks, and great pizzas. Make sure you ask for their bread basket, and olive oil, the olive oil is fresh and very good. From a value perspective, this place scores high, a dinner for two would be well below $50.

I really enjoyed Za. I had been once before, but this time was even better. We were seated outside on this balmy September night, and the service was splendid. The waitresses were accomodating and efficient. The pizza itself was incredible! We had ordered the mac and cheese and the fig and gorgonzola to share, and both pizzas had immense range... More

My son LOVES pizza, In fact he made it a point to find the best pizza in Cambridge. He was not disappointed. He thought his personal pizza was delicious. I have gluten and dairy allergies, so they were able to accommodate me with the wonderful avocado tomato salad. We ate outside and the atmosphere was very nice. The server was... More

I should love this place. The salads are good and the pizza toppings are good. But the crust is just not that great - and for me that is the first consideration when it comes to pizza for me.

Decided to try this restaurant when I drove by and saw it pretty busy. Glad I did. The pizza was outstandingly fresh. Staff is very friendly. Would highly recommend the place...

This is a pizza and salad place. We split a salad and the fig and Gorgonzola pizza, the pizza flavors wee good, but the crust was a little thicker and chewier than my personal preference. The black bean salad was awesome. Service was good as well.

We were a party of six for dinner. We all had pizzas and it was great to see some really unique combinations and ingredients such as mac & cheese, fig, and corn. We started off with a few cheeses and meats from their fabulous charcuterie menu with fresh lardo, bacon, and spicy salami - fantastic kickoff. The pizzas were really... More
