My husband and I decided to try SaZa last week because we were tired of the same old chain restaurants around Newnan. I must say we were pleasantly surprised by the departure that SaZa offered. We both really enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. The decor is very cool and the back part of the restaurant (where we sat) has high ceilings &amp;amp; lots of natural light which I love. Our server was very friendly &amp;amp; attentive during our visit. The first thing I noticed was that this wasn't a standard Italian restaurant. You won't find chicken parm, or chicken alfredo (my usual go-to's) on the menu. After the meal we had though, I'll hardly miss my old favorites. We got the stuffed peppers as an appetizer &amp;amp; they were amazing! Just enough heat to make them tasty without setting you on fire. My husband had the Sunday Sauce, which is this delicious meat sauce served over rigatoni. It had a really nice flavor to it. He's picky about his Italian food but he gave it the thumbs up. I opted for the Lobster, shrimp &amp;amp; spinach over angel hair pasta. The flavor was fantastic, nice &amp;amp; light. Perfect for summer. Both dishes were great &amp;amp; the portions were big enough for us to have plenty for lunch the next day. I can't wait to go back &amp;amp; try out some of their other entrees. I kept seeing pizzas going to tables around us &amp;amp; they looked yummy too! I'd say if you're looking for something to change up your dining experience you should check this place out.

I ate here last Wednesday and was pleasantly surprised. I arrived around seven, eventhough it was moderatly busy we were greeted quickly seated. The restaurant decor is very modern chic , like a futuristic pizza love den. We recieved complimentary garlic " stuff ", they were good and not to overwhelming in garlic flavor. Our service was good and well versed in the daily specials; which sounded more midtown Atlanta than downtown Newnan. I ordered the B liner Snapper and the Local honey and cola glazed pork belly with Logan Turnpike grits, my wife had the pecan & rosemary pork chop with winter veg and " Apple pie jam". We had salads first , my wifes was a chopped ceaser, she seemed to enjoy it; clearing her plate in a minute or less. I had the house with gorgonzola dressing, it was very good and well seasoned. Our app was the Pork belly...it was freaking good better than most I've had in midtown or any town for that matter , the grits w/ the braised belly and arugula salad ummm not to Italian but I didn't really care . My fish was also outstanding,fresh,and well presented.My wife also enjoyed her pork chop even though she could only pound down less than half of the 12 oz beast. So despite what I've heard about thid place in previous reviews I will eat here as much as my wallet allows and leave redneck gourmet to the rest of Newnan....this is my find stay back! Non good food loving newnanites.
I went after hearing some bad reviews, and some very good reviews. A friend and I went on a Fri night and it was moderately busy, but didn't have to wait to be seated. Our waitress was a young girl maybe twenty, her service was speedy and efficiant. I had the the lemon sole which was fresh and much more elegently presented than expected, the fish was cooked spot on and the taste was excellent. My friend had the pork porterhouse with a hot pepper applecider reduction, the pork was cooked between med and med well which was a nice change from the overcooked rubber you get with pork at most places.The sauce was a little spicy but with a hint of acidity from the lemon or white wine they used, it was altogether a nice dish with nice presentation, they used micro chives and a crispy piece of parma ham. Our dessert was the lemon polenta cake which was good but you have to really like lemon, it was really preatty good though. I read a previous review about menu items being out of place for the season, they were obviously a wanna be chef who thinks they can tell people when they are allowed to eat certain foods, so am I allowed to eat hamburgers in the summer time or is that just a fall or winter dish? I like milkshakes in the winter sometimes, so obviously that reviewer is some local restraunteur who has a hard on for the new guy in town. You really should go for yourself and be the judge its really preatty good.
