Known to locals as Za’s on Devine, Za's is a full-service, locally owned neighborhood restaurant and bar in the Devine Street shopping and dining district in Columbia, S.C., specializing in wood-fired pizza, Italian-inspired classics and fresh, substantial salads featuring free-range organic chicken and house-made sausage, sauces, dressings and more.
Since 1999, Za’s Brick Oven Pizza has been a popular neighborhood establishment on the Devine Street corridor of Columbia, S.C. Reopened under new ownership in June 2015, Za’s interior was renovated in a rustic contemporary style, the menu was streamlined to focus on fresh, Italian-inspired dishes, and Executive Chef David Grillo was brought on to raise the game in the kitchen.
Guests enjoy an outdoor patio, distinctive full bar, craft beers and a hand-picked wine list. Loved by locals for its relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and consistently delicious menu, Za’s has become known as one of the best spots on Devine to enjoy happy hour with friends, share a casual dinner with family, socialize in an upscale-casual bar scene, and drink great wine at a great value, seven days a week.
Owners Jeb Babcock, Chad Elsey, Rob Ward and Craig Wyatt – friends since college and avid lovers of travel, food and drink – are proud to run a friendly, happening restaurant and bar where locals will always find comfort, consistency, convenience and quality in a pleasing, contemporary environment where people love to gather.
