Excellent food, drinks and service. Love the lively vibe and overall atmosphere.
Great place and good food!
Really good food very noisy and busy had the spicy calamari appetizer. Wow was it good
Owner / manager is not the most pleasant but he’s Italian so kinda goes with the territory! Also, I wasn’t given credit for my reservation via open table and I had to request for my credit. Hence not all 5 stars around.
Food was only okay
Everything was good until my wife got sick after eating an octopus. Such a disappointment.
We have been at Zaza many times but the last two visits have been less than stellar. I think there is a new chef. It’s good, just not quite the same. We will go back because we do like it
Me and my friend went there for dinner. We order 2 tapas to begin with. The oil used for fired artichoke was smelling and tasted bitter. Also the artichoke was not fresh but canned. Spicy calamari was okay but not at all great for the price. I would really not go back.
Zaza has s a Stamford favorite. The food is always devious, comes out in a timely manner and even though the restaurant is usually busy they never hurry you out. Their drinks are delicious. They have the best espresso martini in town!
food portions were on the small side
Nice spot Downtown Stamford winch not to many this place stands out drinks food etc
I made a reservation for a reason and was seated in the back section of the restaurant and the table wasn’t even ready when we arrived. I love their food but disappointed in the service overall.
Enjoyed the classic Italian dishes. Loved that vegetables with perfectly tender crisp. Great that small plates are available for trying new favorites
Our 2nd time in Stamford this year and we returned to ZaZa for another great meal! Delicious food and the service was excellent! We’ll be back!
Fabulous food. It has a superb menu. Polpo to mussels, arugula salad was tangy and tasty. The pork ribs in a wine sauce did not disappoint
I would recommend to friends if going with 1 or 2 people. It is small inside and very tight. the food is fantastic that saved the night.
Excellent little place in the heart of Stamford. We had a few pizzas, short rib mac and cheese as well as a linguine bolognese. Everything was delicious and the service was great from the waiter to the busboys. Water bottle (left on the table) was never empty.
Very excellent. My wife and I were in Stamford for business and I made a reservation through open table. We had a great table. We ordered the rib and spicy chicken tapas, the arugula pizza and the caprese. Everything was well made and extremely high quality ingredients. The pork and chicken were exceptionally well designed meals.
We had a really nice meal, and the service was exceptional! Try the red sangria it was delicious.
Dinner was fantastic. Girlfriend and I were seated promptly, servers were present but not overbearing, and food was great. Second time coming and won't be our last.
Great place. It’s real Italian
Food is always on point. Manager is a bit of a wack job when it comes to seating guests. It’s always better to sit at the front of the restaurant.
Our waiter at the bar, Luis, was outstanding! Great service & awesome food & drinks
Come here whenever the chance present itself. Definitely my favorite restaurant to go to in Stamford. Really enjoyed just having a tapas and other appetizers. Look forward to my next visit. Hopefully sooner than later.
We just love this place! Food is delicious, truffle brussel sprouts are the best! Staff is friendly and efficient, Maitre D' is awesome. Lively bar scene and delicious mixed drinks. What's not to like?
The food and atmosphere were amazing. Very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
This was my 3rd visit & loved it everytime. Food & atmosphere are great. Loud & hip.
