Love this restaurant. The food is so fresh, delicious and great size portions. Such a varied and yummy menu. The service was brilliant , friendly and all 11 meals - both starters and mains came out really close together - which is always a bonus....Really recommend the calamari and pasta dishes (they all looked and my family said they tasted so good!) I had the meatballs (with pasta ribbons) for mains and they were one of the tastiest I've ever had.More

It was my birthday. This is a spacious, friendly restaurant, with delicious, well-presented food. At the end of the meal, I was presented with tiramasu with a candle on it, happy birthday written in chocolate on the plate and a red heart in strawberry coulis,...lovely. The staff sang me happy birthday, and diners from other tables wished me happy birthday, gorgeous. I can recommend this restaurant and will also return to Zaza PinnerMore

As they handed out menus to our group of four, they informed us that there were no chicken or steak dishes due to a fault with their grill. This left a greatly depleted menu befitting any run-of-the-mill pizza and pasta establishment. I don’t criticise them...for having a fault. I do criticise them for not having informed us beforehand. They had our contact details from when we made the booking over two weeks in advance, so they could have warned us. Presumably this was due to laziness, incompetence or greed. The food we had was mediocre and expensive and the environment was exceptionally noisy. We are previous customers but after that experience we shall never be going back.More

I visited this restaurant in September with family and was not disappointed. We were given a table of our choice near the outside area where it was nice and airy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. For starters we had Pate and Calamari, which every...one enjoyed. Mains, 3 of us had pasta dishes and one had Risotto, again all were lovely, portions were very big. Wines are reasonably priced and we enjoyed a lovely white. We will be back which is the best recommendation you can getMore

I went to Zaza in Bushey today with my family and friends and honestly the food was brilliant, but the service was okay. We all shared a Garlic Bread and the it tasted great. The pastas came and they tasted exactly how they should be....The Parmesan Cheese came. But the only problem was that we had no salt and pepper and we did want some with our meal. Otherwise, everything was brilliant and I can’t fault it! It’s fantastic, definitely worth a visitMore

Really can’t over state how good this place is. We’ve been many many times and never had a dud meal. We are thankful this is on our door step. Great team running the place. Well done.

No idea but the food standard agency has a website that publishes the data.
