Never had Za's, but you might try Mama Angie's at Junkanoo. Probably my favorite pizza of all time.

no wonder they closed. 1-frozen pizza dough. 2 frozen boxed meatballs. 3-very poor managment.4 a server who leaves your table (while takeing your order)to take a personal phone call !.i am not surprised at all that they closed,i dont know any great italian restutaunt who doesnot make there own dough / or meatballs.... this is basic,and if you cant make a meatball you will not be open long.

hmm, now I see why its called Sa Za in Montgomery, and Newnan I hear just opened. Its clear the Naples location was forced to close. Most have lost the rights to the name to the Repo. I will say the food in Montgomery is good, but inconsistent lately. Everyone always wondered why the pizza dough came in frozen and meatballs. Its an open kitchen, YOU CAN SEE EVERYTHING, even when they make the OVER GARLICKY SALTY Garlic Styxx! They come from a box. I enjoyed the pasta dishes over all, Bolognese is great, but would be better without the cream. Grandmas Sunday Sauce has a ton of flavor! but quite heavy in the spring and summer. I cant understand why not one of the pasta is fresh though, like a gnocchi, or ravioli. ITALIANS LOVE TO MAKE AT LEAST ONE FRESH IN HOUSE. Everyone including the Chef rave about the Angel Hair Pasta dish???? They along with the owner must have a dead palate not to realize the spinach is frozen.. 4 Star dish? By means of what Food Critic? From Montgomery? Sorry AL, this is home, but I travel in the forces, and we are 25 yrs behind in the culinary scene. That dish could be magical, but its just ok to me. It was fun eating here the 1st yr, but there is no excitement, the food lacks inventiveness, site the Salmon Dish, which is pretty good, but ITS from France and not Italian. No one remembers Dijonaise from 15+ yrs ago on every menu? Shouldnt it be with some kind of oreganata crust, which is Italian, and some kind of Saffron Tomato Sauce sauce finished with fresh Parsley & Basil? Tarragon Beurre Blanc? French. Im not a foodie, at least I think Im not, but I travel the world and eat out often. Soldiers dont have time to cook :-)

Hope this place gets the "IT" back that it used to have. Dont agree with designer wearing Sinner Shirts, but I spoke with him when I have been in from time to time and seems to have been Chefin everywhere and has a world of exposure. He talked about his Famous Wet Paint Cafe in Canada. Sounded AWESOME! Montgomery needs something like that. My excitement deceased for that idea as I found out it only lasted one yr in Toronto.
Opened in '95, closed in '96

Starting to believe this is a pattern for this chef, and all the press he gets for his success is carefully constructed from the man himself.
