Restaurant Description:

'ZA! Italian Minnesotan began in the late 1900s when the Chef/Owners opened the first location on Lake Street in a renovated Standard Oil station just south of their current restaurant.
The menu of Classic Italian favorites and Signature Specialties expanded until more room was needed.
'ZA! opened in its current space in May 2004, highlighting Minnesota grown and produced meats, vegetables, beer and wine.
"It's about the Food and the View!"

People Love Us Because:

'ZA! is serving up Italian - Inspired, Hand - Crafted, Premium Cocktails and Mixed Drinks - like our Limoncello Martini!

We've got a great Lunch Menu. Scroll down to view it all or click on the "Download/View Printable Menu" image above to get your copy!

'ZA! has generous portions and Lake views at every table plus Chef Paul's Original Recipes found only at 'ZA!

Most casual restaurants depend on microwaves and use pre-assembled or pre-cooked ingredients. We actually cook in our kitchen!
Everything is real and made to order, so it's healthier.
It's quality you can taste!

Our Pizzas are substantial - you don't have to order as much as from other places to feed yourself or your family.
Vegetarians love the Pastas that have a choice of Chicken or Shrimp because we can substitute extra veggies for the meat since we saute them fresh to order. And our Veggie Villa pizza or calzone is the best!

Eating at 'ZA! is good for the community!
"When you spend $1 at a local Independent business, an average of 68 cents is re-circulated into the local economy. In contrast, when you spend $1 at a national chain, only about 43 cents stays at home." Lee Egerstrom,

People love our ambiance! Our music is an eclectic mix of American Standards like Frank Sinatra, Jazz, Classical, Lounge-Chill, and Minnesota Artists!
