Went here for lunch. Had rigatoni with roast chicken, olives and capers with plum tomato sauce and wife had Italian sausages. Both dishes were excellent. Highly recommend.

ZaZa's is a family favorite and we have been going there for years. My sister dies for the fettuccini alfredo and I can't pass up their carbonara. Everything we've ever had has been great.
