Very disappointed that this restaurant does not seem to be doing anything to space tables. There was one very loud table near the front so everyone in the front room had to yell to be heard, especially talking to waiters. We know that yelling spreads the virus more. It was very crowded and loud, which felt unsafe. I will not be going back until after pandemic if ever. I prefer to support restaurants which are genuinely invested in creating a safe environment for staff and customers.

My daughter was in town so we brought her to La ZaZa for dinner. Bravo to them for defying our governor’s illogical and overreaching restaurant closure order. They appeared to practice all safety measures (tables properly spaced, everyone wearing masks, etc. They also took temperatures upon entering the restaurant). Our server was wonderful, checking on us regularly and she had a positive attitude in spite of the COVID related challenges. She helped my daughter decide on her entree and was overall very helpful. The food was fantastic. We’ll be back again soon and we love being able to support our local restaurants who are fighting to survive.

Za Za's is the best restaurant in St Charles and maybe the best in the entire area. The food is always excellent. There aren't good days and bad days at Za Za's. It's always an excellent day for food and for service. I have NEVER had anything but a top notch experience at Za Za's!

We had 2 amazing appetizers with the Bruschetta and calamari. The baked clams were just ok - not up to par with the other parts of our meal. The entrees were excellent. We had poultry, beef and seafood dishes and all were excellent! Jimmy was our server and he did a great job making our diner special and very enjoyable for our party of 5.

The experience at La Za Za Tratoria in St. Charles was perfect, from the food to the ambiance. We had outdoor seating, and all Covid-19 protocols appeared to be in force so the dining experience was very good.

Highly recommend the Ravioli Zucca alla Salsiccia, which is pumpkin filled ravioli with homemade Italian sausage with a sage cream sauce. A tremendous dish to enjoy in the fall.

We were seated in the corner behind the bar which would have been fine except the bar turned from a quiet seating bar to a noisy overflowing standing over our table bar which ruined the evening quite frankly as we couldn’t hear each other and didn’t feel very safe due to Covid and having so many people yelling without masks right behind us.
