Wow! What an amazing restaurant. We tried the Zuppa di Giorno (amazing roasted red pepper soup), Rigatoni Paisano ( homemade sausage & mushrooms) , & Rigatoni Tartufo (chicken). Definitely will be back the next time we are in the area.

Been here a few times. Service is good, drinks and entrees were good, but the stand out for me was dessert. Fantastic. This will be on our rotation.

If you are looking for a first class restaurant, like Italian food, and need a place for dinner that is located close to the Arcada Theater, La ZaZa Trattoria should do nicely. The view of the Fox River, excellent service, and a very extensive menu...More
