Great place if you’re not hungry. Deck overlooks the lake and my husband said the ($12) margarita was good. Food, not so much.

The pesto pizza was a very average pizza with too much cheese and perhaps better off as a white pizza with pesto instead of tomato-based. Was also recommended the chicken sandwich, again very so-so. Very bland white flatbread with pieces of grilled chicken with some kind of chipotle mayo. Service was friendly but would not rush back for the food. Location is awesome, wished the food was better.

A beautiful location, pretty good food and very attentive service. Not much for the vegetarian in our group. Otherwise all good.

Love the pizza here: Thin but not too thin crust and ample toppings. Very pleasant wait staff. The house salad is fresh and delicious. Add in a deck overlooking the lake and you have the perfect pizza/Tahoe experience.

I had lunch here with my family on a recent Lake Tahoe vacation, we picked Za's because we were looking for a nice view of the lake. They have a pretty limited menu, but it had enough variation to have something that everyone in our party was happy ordering.

Parking can be tight, Za's doesn't have many spots and most of the spots around it are reserved for the nearby commercial properties. We went for a late lunch, there was a decent crowd but we didn't have to wait for a table.

I tried the Caesar salad, it was decent but like everything else on the menu I thought it was pricier than the portions or quality merited. My wife had the jack fruit sandwich, she thought it was pretty good. We all enjoyed their fries, and the kids's pasta portion was actually pretty good-sized.

We liked the views, we thought the food was OK, but we won't rush back here because the prices were higher than justified given other options on the lake.
