We stopped in for an early dinner - wanted a light casual meal with a view and ZA’s was perfect for that. Try the squash pizza

My husband and I had lunch here and the food and service was very good. We had a pizza and the crust was very light and thin. The large pizza was huge and we took some home with us. The service was very good.
