Our Pizza Quest continues as we search for the best pizza.. Someone recommended Za and I didn't have a good feeling about it.. boy was I wrong. Excellent Pizza... one of the best in the twin cities IMHO.. If you are looking for great pizza, add this place to the list. I loved the thick cut pepperoni. The table next... More

I have always wanted to try Za' because I have heard they are gluten friendly which is really great. I ordered a gluten free dish and it came to me looking not so fresh. I didn't finish my meal and neither did my kids. We ordered from the kids menu and the portions were for age 3 and under is... More

Wonderful location, the service staff is kind and give you family service. The garlic flavor is super, lip smacking with a umm! And the house wine is wonderful.

We love Za's sausage pizza. If available it's nice to sit outside in the small eating area on Forest Lake. The inside eating area is nice too, it's nice to be outside when possible in Minnesota. The pizza is reasonable and they also offer other Italian options as well.

We've visited Zas multiple times over the last few years. The prices are pretty steep for the quality of food they offer. The wine list and drink menu aren't that much better. They have a patio that seats about 6 people, if that. The waitstaff is pretty good, we've never had any issues with that. You can tell they haven't... More

We've been to Za! before and liked it enough to return. Tonight, however, sealed our fate. We sat on the patio, which was nice, but the service was very slow. A couple who came in after us was served and left before our appetizer could arrive, but at least it was on the house with apologies. Dinner was fine but... More

We were excited for a nice dinner with friends time to. Arch up on things. Waitress was friendly but way over worked she appeared to be the only one waiting tables. We ordered and 40 minuets later our food came. My pasta was only warm not hot, very garlicky and filled with way too many onions. Also missing from my... More

Our first experience here has been excellent. Not only was the service exceptional but the taste of our menu choices was outstanding. We had a table by the window so we had a beautiful view of the lake.
