Had a wonderful meal at Za Za's. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food was amazing. Reasonable pricing too. Very good but make sure and call for a reservation.

Such good, fresh foods here - never had a bad meal. Love their carpaccio - one of the best. Fresh pasta's, nice dining room (always quiet), and a nice wine selection.

I love baked clams and I'm not sure why they put a "gravy" on theirs. Everything seems to be flavored with Balsamic glaze which gets a little overwhelming. The fried sea bass was inedible and should rethink that dish. My seafood linguine was a pound of pasta with minimal seafood and sauce. It was busy, but I'm not sure what... More

My wife and I love this place. We always seem to forget about it but when we go we never regret it. Great specials and a nice bar area if you have to wait for a table.

Our 3rd time here but I can never seem to get it right! It's just me! I simply never order the right thing!! I had the Bricole with Linguini which was one of today's special and for me it was too beefy and saucy. I could not find the egg or provolone. My husband on the other hand ordered and... More

Food is exceptional! We ordered for 3 Zaza's salad. I could just eaten that salad and I would have been content. Waiter was very attentive. Would go back just for the salad alone!

Za Za's has amazing food, and great service. I have been there several times, and have never been disappointed. I moved to Chicago from New York City, and this reminds me of a restaurant on Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. Really good, straight forward Italian fare. The salad is amazing, and if you go for lunch, the lunch chicken salad... More

If you like fine dining this is it at an affordable price. The service and food are exquisite. Great selection of wines also.

Hot, Fresh Food, but that's the only good things I can say about this place. Service was poor; Server was very inattentive, I got better service from the bus boy. My glass & the bread basket were constantly empty, and I had to continuously ask to have them refilled. Our server did not know the prices of the menu specials.... More
