Zinna's Bistro is a family-owned and operated Italian-American bistro that opened in January 2010. It is one of the hidden gems that make up the treasured Cranbury community. At Zinna's, we believe good food is simple food made with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available including a variety of produce that grows in our very own on-premise garden.

My family and I have been going to Zinna's for a few years and have never been disappointed. From the pasta to the meat dishes everything is amazing.

Zinna's is a family owned Italian,BYO. We stopped on our way to NYC . Our lunch was delicious and the price was reasonable. The service was excellent. There was a good selection of menu options. The bistro had interesting art work made of wine corks on the walls.

Our friends suggested we try Zinna's for dinner. I had heard good and mediocre reviews of the restaurant but we decided to give it a shot. We were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our appetizers and our entree's. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very cordial and helpful too. We agreed that we'll return again soon.

Nice cozy spot, I waitress Morgan was very helpful with choices we made! We were happy to find that they do now have wine but only by the bottle few choices from a nearby Vineyard, but you can also bring your own wine, my husband started with the beet salad fried beat wedges, served with a garlic cream dipping sauce...

Pasta just O.K. but not exceptional. One veal saltimboca dish was so tough that it was inedible and we sent it back. They were very nice and changed it very rapidly. We went with a coupon and it was still very pricey. Salad was extra cost if you wanted it. BYOB. My first time there, may not go back.

Just got home from a nice Dinner, the Fr Calamari was wonderful and the Veal Samb was really tender. They had a Guitar song player, Thursday nights he was really good. BYOB or you can buy wine there . It is cozy and the food is all home made and Tasty. They also have a room for small private parties.

The colors and decor were comforting, creative and tasteful for such a large place. We stopped for a late lunch on a rainy afternoon so it wasn't super crowded then but that's not surprising considering the weather and time. I had the poached pear salad with grilled chicken and loved every bit but even with just oil & vinegar dressing... More

My husband and I were looking for a local restaurant that offers catering. We came across this restaurant online. We decided to go there for dinner on Saturday night. The food was delicious, the ambience nice, and the Manager very kind and seemed interested in his guests having a pleasant dining experience. We are going to use their catering service... More
