Great pizza with a smile! We were just expecting a regular pizza place but Za surprised us with their unusual pizza with excellent fresh ingredients, even good the next day. Also staff is super friendly and nice.

My favorite is the pepperoni with sausage. The lemonade is tasty. And the service is great. They have beer too which is pretty good and the dessert is awesome - gotta have the hazelnut brownie.

Very friendly service. Good wine. We had portobello pizza, a beet and goat cheese salad and some very nice dessert. All quite interesting and good. We can recommend this casual place.

EVOO has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years. When we found out that they had opened a casual pizza/salad sit down restaurant, we were intrigued. Now that there is one in Arlington, not too far from where we live, we finally got...More

I love, love, love ZA. I have turned my family onto ZA and whenever they are in town we have to get pizzas from ZA. Sometimes I even take them down to RI on weekends. Always great pizza and flavorful toppings.

Had read a lot about this place, so decided to try the pizza. Service was excellent, can't say the same about the pizza. Was an average pizza, with nothing special. Was overloaded with toppings and didn't taste good at all. Surprising to know they don't...More
