The pizza here is one of then best in the city. After living in NYC for several years, that means alot! The slices and pies are all thin crust and feature creations like the ""Salvador Dali"" with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes. I like eating there but the place is usally packed so I would then recommend ordering the pizza for take-out instead of delivery bc that usually takes an hour.

Their pizza is a sin. I live only a few blocks away so it's very tempting. It's a small busy place so I don't go there on the weekends - it's just packed and loud then. But their pizza is good compensation for a little wait. Toppings are creative and jummy!
Had terrible experience with delivery, takes them forever and of course they lie/ cover up on the phone. But isn't that the same thing with all the other GOOD AND BUSY places...???
Go there on a weeknight or order over phone and pick it up yourself, that's what I recommend.

Okay, it's no NYC pizza, but can anyone in SF do NYC pizza? If so, DO TELL now! But it is the best thin crust pizza-only joint around. The crusts are usually crispy and the toppings creative (= californian). Best bet: order a whole pizza, eat it as soon as it arrives on your table. Pizza by the slice can sometime be greasy (reheated pizza?). Unless you have lots of patience and are not hungry, don't attempt to eat there on a weekend night! They only have a few tables and the place gets completetly mobbed! And oh, they don't let you phone in your order ahead either. Eat there on a week night instead.

I'm not too picky on my pizza, i pretty much like it all but this place is definitely one of the better one's I've tried. They have very unique toppings and good service. We usually order in, and they give you coupons on their menu's for a few bucks off which is nice. The sauce they use isn't too flavorful or spicy but the rest of the toppings are great.

This was truly a sensational experience on a fine Saturday afternoon. Reading past reviews on this pizza shop, I took the advice of not going there during the dinner rush. Its my understanding that this place becomes packed with patrons during the evening. After my pizza experience there, I can understand why. This pizza truly deserves to be in the top tier of pizza shops in the bay area. They can definitely hang with the big boys. I had a few bites of my girlfriends salad and I thought it was pretty decent as well. However, if you go there and dont get at least one slice of pizza, you are missing out.
Stopping in for lunch was a godsend. As a recent transplant from LA, I am on a never ending mission to seek out the best pizza places/slice shops in the area. This one is a gem. No, wait, it is a diamond mine! In my opinion, Za Pizza rivals Abbots Pizza in Venice, CA and Lamonicas near UCLA.
Also, lets not forget the SERVICE there. Fan-freakin tastic! Im not even being the slightest bit sarcastic either. The guy with glasses (I think he is the owner) is a friendly guy who knows how to treat the customer. He'll make you feel welcome. As a matter of fact, all the employees who were there were nice and very attentive to us, as well as the other customers. I gotta say thanks to Za Boys.
I can honestly say that having lunch there brightened my whole day. I almost had to shed a tear. Too bad I don't live closer to Russian Hill, but then again I would only get a bigger pizza gut

I love this place, unfortunately it's a pain for me to get to, so I don't go very often. They offer pizza by the slice, 4 options to choose from: cheese, pepperoni, meat special, and veggie special. It's a little pricey for a slice of pizza, but it is fantastic. The crust is thin and crispy, and the combinations of toppings is always unique and delicious. My favorite is the pesto, garlic, tomato combination that was on special one day. The guy with glasses is extremely nice and provided great service, and even chatted for a while waiting for my slice to warm up. I've only ever gotten slices here, but you can order whole pizzas as well as beer. It's a great little place, and some of the best slices you can get around.

My experience with this place was horrible. I am a customer who live in the neighborhood and ordered pizza as a courtesy for a client who was at my house. We waited over 2 hours on a Sunday night and NO PIZZA. The first time we called they said it was on the way. The second time they said my card was declined and they called me 5 times to confirm. Actually, they never called! The bank said they keyed in the exp date on my card wrong. Absurd. So the person acting as the manager at Za Pizza was rude, never made the pizza, and I lost a client because they were hungry and it made me look incompitent. Very poor customer service, next time DOMINO'S
