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.

Great Pizza amazing atmosphere

The wood fire pizza and paella are fantastic. Salads are large enough to share. Great energy, yet quiet enough to carry on a conversation. I have been here several times since they opened.

I really liked this restaurant. I have heard about it for some time. The food and service was excellent. We had the blue crab dip for an appetizer which was to die for. For an entree I had the paella which I thought was great.

I had a delicious dinner and a nice chat here. It's a lovely spot in downtown Rockwall, and I'll definitely go again.

Love the food here! The best pimento cheese out there! Fresh salmon to die for! The coconut pie was the best I've ever had!

We've been here a few times, usually on a Sunday night to meet our friends Jan and Beth for 1/2 price wine night. We usually sit at the bar, which is always fun. Pizza is great out of the wood fired oven, but other more elaborate entrees are done really well also.

First I want to confess that I did not actually eat here. The food may be out of this world, but I couldn't get past the sound barrier. We went on what was a quiet Friday night for the rest of downtown Rockwall, but this place was packed and it was literally so loud that I could not hear my... More

I'm a Rockwall native and live near downtown. This is by far the best option if you aren't a fan of "chain" restaurants and want a great meal with service to match. Options include well thought out salads, fantastic blue crab dip, mussels (one of my faves), gourmet pizzas (gluten free crust avail), seasonal fish, pork and steaks. The specials... More

Love to eat here especially in the fall when it becomes cooler and they open the windows. Good food and good wine selections

Zanata's has the feel of a west coast restaurant. An open layout with an easily accessible bar, and street front windows from one end to the other contribute to this. You'll get excellent service, and you'll never have a waiter calling you "buddy" or "honey." Great Pizza menu, we like The Hubbard, and try the stuffed avocados. They're just ridiculous.... More

Wonderful meal of blue crab dip, roasted chicken and sea bass. My husband doesn't always rave about food, but he REALLY enjoyed the food and we will be back to try other dishes!
