Great place for lunch or dinner. I especially like their pizza. The service is great and the stroll around the old downtown is great.

They are at the top of the list. The food is cooked in wood burning ovens and it rocks. I have had everything from a porterhouse steak to swordfish. I have never had a bad meal.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is unique and rustic. Being able to see the wood oven is fun, but due to the very ope concept of the dining and kitchen the noise level is high and can be challenging to have a conversation if the restaurant is busy. The service is great, and the food is good. The prices are... More

Good drinks (oh, the spicy margarita!!!) and pizza to die for. Often we sit at the bar, watch the chef's load the woodburning oven banter with other guests. But tables are good too! The owner is an engaging guy, but let me be clear. He is not chatty. Has a restaurant to run and they are busy. Now the bad... More

ZANATA's has excellent food. Their pizza is awesome along with their entrees. You cannot go wrong with any menu item and their desserts are incredible.

Love the food and friendly waitstaff. The noise volume is so high though. Hard to talk and hear across the table if the restaurant is full.

First trip to this restaurant. Overall impressions very positive Good Vibe. Good Bar scene. Like the way the windows open on the front so you can get a breeze or even sit outside with a drink! Crab Dip appetizer was Fantastic. Good Fish and Good Grits. Too full to finish everything! We will be back.

This is a very popular Location in Rockwall. Go during non peak times (early lunch) otherwise you will wait. The food is fresh and tasty. My absolute fav was the bananna dessert! I am not a bananna fan but our waiter bet that if I didnt enjoy it, it would be free! Needless to say I loved it and sometimes... More

I recently had the pleasure of meeting friends at Zanata. Having never been there, I wasn't sure what to expect. The place is charming and warm, the manager on duty, Curtis was pleasant and helpful with our menu selections. Based on the size of the crowd, I can tell this is a VERY popular local establishment. I can see why,... More

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.
