I'd reccomend this place to anyone who loves Italian food. This is the best stuff around. Everything is so fresh. They just opened a wine bar next door. It's really modern and a great addition to Oakland. It's totally not overpriced, either.

Pros: Food, Wine Bar, Service

I've been going to Zza's for years now. And they still have it! The food is so good, and the staff is really helpful and friendly. When I go in with my nephews, the servers are really accomodating. And when I go in on a Friday night with my date, they make it very romantic and seat us next to the front window. I hear they are opening a wine bar next door, and I can't wait. If their wine is as good as their pasta, then I'll be there all the time!

My boss took our team out for lunch last week for our department holiday party. Zza's was wonderful. It was my first time, and the food was great. They have the best shrimp pasta I've ever had. Everyone in our group loved the service. The staff was so kind and accomodating. I can't wait to return!

I just got engaged and moved to Oakland from SF. My fiance and I tried Zza's for the first time the other day. ANd it is AWESOME. THe food is fantastic. The service was great. The flashing lights are so much fun, yet it is still romantic. I felt like I was somewhere totally new and different. And I hear they are opening a wine bar next door. I cna't wait for that!

I have lived in Oakland for 6 years, and Zza's is my new favorite spot. Ever since the owndership changed, the place is so much fun! The pasta is to die for. I love the Rotelle. It's probably the best pasta I"ve ever had, and my grandmother was Italitan!

I heard Zza's was a great place for dinner, but I needed a place for lunch on Sunday. I took my family here, and everyone loved it. Even the kids. My husband has ordered delivery three times since we've eaten there. This is our new family favorite! And it's inexpensive.

Pros: Kid Friendly, Attentive Staff, Fresh food

Cons: Can be busy on wekends

What can I say about Zzas? I've been going there forever and can never get tired of it. Pasta dishes (rotelle a la chix or the rock shrimp with linguini and smoked bacon) are to die for! The clams in white wine cream sauce can't be overlooked either. Best of all, go on your birthday and you'll light up the house and maybe get a free desert!....

PROS: You can color with crayons on the table cloths!
CONS: decibels can get up there!

After moving from San Francisco to the East bay I was looking for a new favorite restaurant and stumbled upon Zza's after going to the Grand Lake movie theater. I had the special whole crab with fresh pasta and felt like I was back in the city. This is my new favorite spot in Oakland but instead of having a view of the Bay Bridge I had an excellent view of the Lake!

ZZA'S has great food, great wine, and a really cool view of the lake. I am still licking my fingers from the especial pizza with smoked bacon, mash potatoes, truffle oil and zucchini. The ZZAS light sign that blinked in the background reminded me and my girlfriend of being in Vegaswe got a kick out the waiter yelling across the roomLights Please! You got to check this place out for yourself. I highly recommend ZZAS. I will be back again next week for my girlfriend Birthday Party!

Pros: True Italian Food, Not to Fancy, Cool Vibe

Cons: Busy

I was utterly disappointed in ZZA's. The hostess was incredibly nice and cheerful, but other than her, the experience was very subpar. Oakland just may not have a great Italian restaurant. ZZA's should send their staff to North Beach to learn the business.
