Have their own veggie and flow garden!

Nice restaurant, featuring their own veggie and flower garden. Food is mainly all Italian. Great outdoor sitting area as well.

Selected Zinna's Bistro for my birthday dinner based on a our first time there 2 months ago that was great. Can't say the same for our 2nd time there. Our male server told us he was too young to open the wine so we waited 10 minutes before another server came to open our wine. She was extremely rude and... More

I am happy you stumbled upon our bistro, and the experience was a positive one. I am thoroughly overjoyed that you and your wife enjoyed your dinners. I will need to speak to my mother about the carrot cake though. Maybe the recipe needs a little tweaking. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to provide feedback. More

We choose this restaurant to have dinner with another couple and we were very impressed with the meal! I had Bechamel Bleu Chicken and my wife had a Lamb Burger. Both dishes were very large portioned and very tasty!! We highly recommend this place.

The food is very good and the menu varied. In the summer they grow some of their own produce. Attractive restaurant both inside and out.

The dining room is large but cozily decorated and filled with diners , most tables with at least four people. Even with the room filled to capacity with people enjoying dinner, the noise level was muted and... More

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.
