Description: Zaza restaurant in the heart of Rickmansworth has a charming location in a listed building in Church Street. The exposed brick and ancient beams combine beautifully with the stylish cream walls, modern art works, fresh flowers, dark wood tables and seating to make Zaza a real find, both for business and romance. There is even a garden for al fresco dining in the warm months. The fine Italian menu features home made pasta, stone baked pizzas, fresh fish delivered daily, and great grills and vegetarian dishes. With a superb international wine list and attentive service, Zaza offers a terrific dining experience.

“great italian food, excellent service and homely restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Visited Zaza restaurant with my partner to celebrate our anniversary. We have been to Zaza a couple of times before and as usual the staff were attentive and not intrusive, remembered us from previous visits and also gave us complimentary cocktails to celebrate our anniversary. really nice touch.
Food is Zaza is always fresh and tasty and as usual didn't disappoint. had the chicken livers in red onion and wine sauce for starters and it was divine~!.
I ordered the linguine pescatore, my partner ordered the calzogne which was very tasty and fresh. I ordered the house special; strawberry cheesecake with ice cream for dessert and it was definitely homemade; it tasted so good!
.All in all, a fantastic dining experience and made our anniversary celebration memorable. Thanks Zaza.

“Tuesday Night is just fantastic value...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Have now eaten here at least four or five times when I am staying away on business and usually on a Tuesday when they have a themed "Italian" evening. You can can select from the A la carte menu or the two course special with the option of having unlimited wine for just £5 more....Of course the wine option is great and fantastic value however the food stacks up as well as it is very well cooked and presented.
My colleagues and I keep going back again and again which says it all....

“Excellent Lunch time value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

ZAZA is a chain of italian restaurants, and the various establishments I have visited have all been of a good standard. This one however, sttod out. Firstly it is in a quaint old building so watch your head for ceiling beams and going to the upstairs section is interseting given the old staircase. The food is the main thing and was superb. It should not be difficult to cook Pasta and a Pizza but to make them stand out as memorable is another matter and this chef did just that. As for value, given this was part of the lunchtime deal the value is exceptional. Service was pleasant and efficient.
Would I go here again? most certainly!

“small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We sat in the garden as it was a very warm evening, it was a very nice setting.
The moules were very meagre and lots of empty shells and the bread was one small roll between four of us. The pasta dish was a very tiny portion and my tuna salad although very nice the salad consisted of a mountain of lettuce and not much else.
Very nice setting but not good value for money.
