I have never been disappointed with the food. I have had almost everything on the menu and not one item was bad. I will say it is difficult to have a large party there because of the noise level in the restaurant. It is great for a smaller group though.

I heard about this place from my concierge, having just flown in from the San Francisco Bay Area today. I was delighted to find that the food really is great. Unfortunately, the "vibe" is a little off. The ambience is of a woodfired pizza place with a full bar. They just happen to have exceptional food. They could choose to... More

My friend and I went for lunch today to celebrate our October birthdays. We both had the sandwich and soup combo. The soup today was tomato basil and it is by far the best I have had. My friend had the pork sandwich and I had the BLTA. We both were extremely happy with our choices. Since it was a... More

Based on reviews I may have had too high of expectations. Our party ordered two spinach salads and they were all spinach. I love salads that aren't the typical house or caesar salad so was really disappointed. I don't want a salad covered with ingredients and dressing but having to search to find them is different which was the opinion... More

Zanatas never disappoints! The pizzas here are fabulous! Try the Spiked Happy Hour pizza - it is deliciously spicy! The House or the Hubbard's are equally wonderful! The Blue Crab Dip and the Bruschetta Plate are lovely appetizers. The Spinach & Gorgonzola Salad is scrumptious!

My husband and I decided to share an appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. We are big eaters, and it was plenty. And WOW, was it delicious. We started with the Blue Crab Dip, followed by the Bruschetta Salad. We were extremely impressed at this point. Then they brought our entree - the Rib Eye Florentine. The flavor was amazing. Seriously.... More

While there dinner is good, lunch is by far my favorite! The chicken salad sandwich is great! The pickles served on the side are really good too and you can't go wrong with either the white or red sangria! Both of the sangrias are light and refreshing. I can say I have ever had anything bad here. The staff and... More

Great lunch. A friend and I split the avocado with shrimp salad appetizer and a specialty salad. Both great but would have the avocado appetizer next time with maybe a cup of soup. It was soooo good. Good menu and in rebuilt downtown Rockwall with shopping in the area.

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.
