Good food that comes out relatively fast even during peak lunch hours. Pizza is always good and decent sized individual portions. The potato salad is a favorite of mine. Staff is always friendly and fast to refill drinks.

We walked by this restaurant daily, and the smells were amazing, we had to try it. We had a short wait for our table. Our service was great, we got a few pizzas to share, and it was interesting trying their different combinations. Some of our party had beer on tap as well, and said it was very good. We... More

I'm not sure why Za is not rated higher on Trip Advisor as it's sure worth the trip. Appetizers are plentiful and a great compliment to eclectic pizza. The avocado/black bean option was a great combo. Thankfully we shared this as it was huge. Eclectic pizza concoctions were fantastic. (Think gourmet, not south Boston Italian.) I had the mushroom/onion/goat cheese... More

I ate lunch here recently and it was wonderful! The beet salad is divine and the avocado salad is also really good. My friend and I shared a simple pizza with these 2 salads and it was enough to have leftovers. I would definitely recommend this as a place for a good, casual meal.

My colleague and I have eaten pizza for lunch several times here. Weather permitting, we really enjoy the outdoor seating. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

Loved the food. I enjoyed their pizza with potato sauce, very unconventional but very tasty. Staff friendly and it's a good family resturant. Indoor and outdoor seatings with a kids play area. I enjoyed their beetroot salad too.

Really enjoyed the pizzas and the salads were unique and very good. When we go back to Cambridge, we will definitely eat at Za again.

We went to Za for a birthday, and I am glad we did. It was a Saturday, so we had made reservations for five for dinner. We decided to try three different specialty pizzas, and was better than the other, all natural, delicate and rich in flavor and the crust made to the right texture: fig pizza (heaven), beef bomb...

We were in a hurry and wanted to grab a bite to eat. We had great service and just asked for the pizza in a to go box. Tasty, oven fired pizza-- great to eat in or take out.

It was too hot but outside seating looked nice. We had two salads which were good except mine was a "Greek" type described as cucumber, radish, feta,olives, and potato salad. Reality was a robe of mashed potatoes topped with the salad. I did not want mashed potatoes. The rest of it was ok though feta barely detectable. We had to... More
