I went to Sa-za again tonight. I have never have a bad meal here. I discovered on my last visit that they make outstanding pizza! Anyway, I usually get the Chicken Paillard - it's delicious. You won't go wrong by eating here.

We had 9 people and the service was still really good. Took off one star as waiter didn't ask if we wanted drinks. Just brought water.

We thought that the pasta sauce had too much herbs which overpowered the taste of the tomato sauce, we prefer our tomato sauce spicy and lightly seasonsed.

On and evening when other restaurants in the area were sparsely populated, there was very limited seating at SA ZA. Pizza, salads and Italian dishes are the norm here and all appear to be good. However, I have one issue. The pizza is produced using already baked crust, I presume to save time. The re-baking process makes the crust a... More

We arrived too late for table, having not made a reservation, but agreed to sit at the bar, and could thus avoid a wait. Staff were competent and friendly, but very busy. Food was good, with adequate proportions. Nice range of Italian foods (with some obvious exceptions missing: lasagna, risotto, Cannelloni, ... a range of beers on offer, including draft... More

So, made reservations and then went to Sa-Za in downtown Montgomery. Hostess had a puzzled look on her face when I told her our name and 7:30... However, seated us right away. Our server, Alex, was fantastic... Even my daughter was impressed when my fork touched the menu, and Alex quickly took it away saying she would bring another -... More

This is a very nice place. The garlic bread with Parmesan sauce is really good and the veal Parmesan is delicious. Also it's in the entertainment district so when you're done you can take a drink with you

Staying at the Hampton at the corner and was looking for something close. Found this place. Ambience was great! Pasta was great! The sauce was amazing! One of the best pasta sauces I have ever had!

First trip to Montgomery and Saza was across the street from my hotel. I had very high hopes, the Caprese salad was out of this world. Fresh basil, heirloom tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella that melts in your mouth. The server was sweet enough, but only saw her once in about 30 minutes and even she didn't bring me food which... More

We sat outside and the breeze was wonderful, almost as good as the food. The evening was so perfect just like our waitress....we also brought the leftovers home for lunch the next day. Such a nice time, we'll be back when we visit my sister and her family.
