“outstanding pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Really outstanding pizza, made of good ingredients, lots of good topping rather than overdoing the crust (as most pizza restaurants do); excellent starter salad, and the glass of house wine was not only good, but LARGE, a nice change from the thimbles of wine that many serve. Very reasonable price, especially considering the high quality.

“Innovative Pizza and Salads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Za has a range of innovative pizza and salads. The avocado salad, for example, is a delicious combination of avocado, red onions, green peppers, cilantro and other species. Pizza creations are equally imaginative, and one can also create your own pizza with fresh, quality ingredients. The wine list is well selected and very reasonably priced. The ambiance is very modern. Service was courteous, friendly and efficient. Subdued music and a low noise environment added to the dining experience.

“Excellent Pizza and salad no frills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Went here for the first time last week. Limited menu of pizza and salads but what they do, they do best. Pizza was thin crust and perfect and the salad with the buttermilk dressing was to die for!

“Innovative, flavorful pizzas reasonably priced = Can't miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Dined here recently while attending a conference with co-workers. Za is close to both Kendall Square and the Cambridgeside Galleria, a short walk from Land Blvd and the Charles.

Restaurant concept is farm-to-table ingredients and gourmet personal-sized pizzas. All four pizzas are party sampled were great. Some of the salads are constructed on a bed of potato puree (read mashed potato), which is rather bizarre, but the salads are excellent.

Great food quality for price, and quick, efficient, pleasant service. Far superior to food court fare.
