Food was very good and a great variety. Service truly on point...true professionals. Indoor and outdoor dining available and not too noisy where one cannot conduct business. Definitely recommend.

I've been meaning to visit this local Italian restaurant for a number of years. It looks great from the outside and is always bustling.

Our family went to ZaZa's for dinner. The foods were very good. The waitress was very friendly and kept on coming back to check on us. We liked the food a lot. We will go again.

We walked in on Sunday evening at 8:40 pm (they close at 9pm) and I thought they were all going to break their wrists checking their watches, including our server. The food was pretty good. Would definitely go again.
