Wine list ✅. Caesar salad 🥗 was fresh, however the dressing (which was flavorful albeit salty) was way too heavy. Our 1/2 Hubbard and 1/2 Mighty Quinn pizzas 🍕 were extremely tasty but one of the crusts was burnt. And, of course, even at lunch it was extremely noisy. Do not go here for business nor a date as you... More

We love it here. Great vibe. Excellent food. Good wine and beer selection. Great owners. And locally owned. Be sure and get the shrimp and grits -- it's a seasonal dish and delicious.

Zanata's is my family's favorite restaurant in Rockwall. Its specialty is Neapolitan-type pizza, with a thin lightly charred crust. You can keep it simple with the "standard" or get one of the specials - San Jacinto, with dried figs, balsamic vinegar and pine nuts, is one of my favorites. Salads are big enough to share, as is the blue crab... More

Crab dip is the best in the metroplex. Delicious. Excellent pizzas. Get there early on Friday and Saturday evening, or be prepared to wait 30-45 minutes to be seated.

Delicious Margarita pizza and amazing spinach salad. The service is incredible and everyone is helpful. The guys behind the bar go out of their way to make you feel like your top priority. Even when the wait is 1 hour and 45 minutes and the place is packed. Totally worth the wait and we will go back.

This is hands down the best place in Rockwall. The blue crab dip and the Z salad are a must. Best pizza you'll ever find.

We got there for an earlier dinner time then most so we didn't have too big of a crowd. My whole family enjoyed the food: apps, pizza, and salmon salad. The staff was helpful and friendly. We will visit again.

We really enjoy Zanta!! Each time we try something different and have never found anything that was not delicious. The specials are always interesting and very flavorable.

The food and service are both very good ! The casual atmosphere on the square in Rockwall is unique and cozy. Plenty of great Boutique stores to shop close by which makes it a fun place to lunch with the girls! I highly recommend the avocado salad as well as their pizza. Good wine and spirits also available!

This is our "go to" restaurant in Rockwall. Everything is cooked in the wood fired oven. We especially like the daily specials, particularly the fish specials. You can't go wrong here.

Our hand-tossed pies are baked in a 900° wood oven. Our chefs then top them with organic ingredients, local produce and imported cheeses. Local favorites are the Truffle Pie with tartufo, potato, pancetta, rosemary and egg; the Standard with pomodoraccio tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil; and most of all - our Crab Dip. Everything is cooked to perfection 100% in our wood fire oven.
