Zachary's has the best deep dish pizza!! Whether you get it to eat there, or for takeaway, it is excellent! Their regular pizzas are good as well, but I'm a huge fan of the deep dish!

Most of Berkeley and Oakland pizza eaters are big fans of Zachary's. My family loves Zachary's pizza, especially the deep dish variety, but I don't particularly like the crust; I prefer Little Star's cornmeal crust, and Gioia's as well. Zachary's sausage is delicious, but their sauce doesn't have a bold enough flavor; I think it needs fresh basil and fresh... More

This is a very slightly upscale place, the price a bit higher than expected, the focus is on the experience and feel of the place (as compared to franchise). The taste of the pizza is really good too. The grilled veggie pizza takes about 30-35 minutes, we were told in advance. Our server was great, everything was good, but for... More

Maybe the best pizza I have ever had - and I have had pizza in NYC and Chicago. If you are going to have pizza, and especially if it is something you do not ordinarily include in your diet, I think you should get the very best pizza you can find. Zachary's is so good it seems it should be... More

I love the pizza of this place. I am generally not a pizza fan but this place is awesome. Their pizza have a very crisp and different crust which does the magic.

If possible, pick it up to go. Waiting for a table can take unpleasantly long. But a classic delicacy in the East Bay. The Stuffed Spinach and Mushroom is famous around here.

Was able to check out Zachary's with some coworkers who were new to the Bay Area. They walked out saying it was the best deep dish pizza they ever had. Call 30-40 minutes ahead to order your pizza, and it will be ready when you arrive. Awesome restaurant, great pizza.

We love the pizza at Zachary's. It is always a great treat. The restaurant is a wee bit crowded and that can make eating there a little less enjoyable. We mostly order take out, and that works best for us.

I grew up in the Berkeley area and now live in Southern California. However, whenever I'm in Berkeley a few times a year, I always have to go to Zachary's. They have exceptional pizza and do the stuffed pizza pie so well. The Solano Avenue restaurant is great. I also frequent the one in Albany. If you are looking for... More
