If you're looking for tasty, authentic Italian cuisine, then Sa-za is a great place to dine. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. If you don't want to wait as long for a table, I highly recommend eating at the bar.

Went there with my daughter and friend for dinner. My daughter managed a high-end pizza restaurant (with local and organic ingredients) in California so we're pretty fussy. The waiter made some excellent suggestions, when asked, and we enjoyed everything. Great atmosphere. It's usually very busy but we went a little earlier so it wasn't too bad. It's in a good... More

Stumbled upon Sa-Za on a Sunday night when most of the supposedly good restaurants were closed. We called ahead, were greeted warmly and were told we could bring our own wine for a corkage fee. We brought several bottles and were given a very comfortable table and a superb waitress named Jeri J. We ordered salads, apps, entrees, and desserts... More

Went there with family and everyone had a different entree. Everybody enjoyed their selection. It has a very nice downtown atmosphere. Service was good and prices were average for a capital city restaurant.

I had eaten here when it first opened in the alley but essentially bought off the excellent drink menu. Last Thursday we saw a show at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre so we made a reservation for dinner prior to the show. We arrived a bit early and were seated immediately by smiling faces who obviously appreciate a customer. We... More

We ate here twice - the first time was excellent (mussels and pasta), but the second time the food was not quite so good. The atmosphere is bustling - both times it was very busy even on a Monday night. Worth a visit

The friends we were in Montgomery with are friends of the owners and suggested this for dinner on a Saturday night. We are so glad they did! The food was amazing and the prices very reasonable. We shared the garlic styx, mussels and the bruschetta of the day (shrimp) to start. It was all fresh and delicious. After all those... More

Stopped by for dinner last night with the family. We ordered Grandma's Pizza which had way too much spaghetti sauce and no flavor. Service was okay. Too overpriced for okay tasting pizza.

It looked good from the outside and our boys(aged 6 and 9 years old) love Italian food. We were put in to a corner, probably because we did not fit the young professional type that appeared to be the clientele. As such we seemed to be ignored a lot and although our drinks came quickly it took a long time... More

We had a delightful dinner at Sa-za with another couple. The food was excellent and service was outstanding. I asked our waitress which dish she recommended--and she quickly responded the Chicken Parm. Boy was she spot on! Huge serving that could easily feed two. Clearly, no one walks away hungry here. While parking can be a challenge, it's worth the... More
