I love the look of Zanata and finally had a chance to stop in with a friend and grab dinner. The staff were helpful and friendly, and we spoke to one of the owners who was generous with his time in telling us about his restaurant. It was a nice atmosphere, excellent adult beverages, and a good choice of wines... More

Great atmosphere & service . Oven fired pizzas are great with all fresh ingredients. The salads are to die for - but they are huge & can be shared. The gelattos and the bananas foster are yummy!

Tried this place a few years ago when it first opened and wasn't impressed. Found it pricey for its quality and the martinis were way over-priced. Since it had been a long time we decided to give it another try. This time we ordered pizza and it was so so. Again, the food & drinks are over-priced. Not sure we'll... More

Great place to eat on the square in Rockwall. Pizza is wonderful. Salads, appetizers, entrees are all very good. Jumbo Lump Crab Dip or Garlic Cheese Bread are excellent starters. The Mighty Quinn pizza (house sausage, pepperoni, prosciutto, tuscan peppers, onions) was very good. We had to wait about 30-40 minutes (we had a large party of 10) but it... More

Unique resteraunt on the Rockwall Square, has been in business for a couple of years, expanded once and still a local treasure. Has great food, friendly service and a wonderful wine list. Not to be missed, 5 stars.

The food is always fabulous. Great wine. There's usually too long of a wait and it's a bit loud in there, but we always have a good time and the restaurant atmosphere is great- like in Italy.

You can't go wrong with Zanata's in Rockwall….it's on the quaint little Rockwall square with tons of unique shops to visit before and after your lunch or dinner. Totally wood fire grilled food never tasted so delicious! Kudos to the chef! The... More

What a local treasure we found when we happened in on Zanata. Thrilled it is in our area. The Wine list was wonderful. Our meal and service,the two times we have been there, have been terrific!

You just can't go wrong at Zanata. We went specifically for the weekend specials on a Sunday night. I had the Roasted Quail which came with green beans, potatoes, and apples. There were two quail stuffed with currants, pecans, and stuffing with a wonderful glaze. Outstanding!! My husband had the Paella which he thought was outstanding, too. Half price bottles... More

Again, everything was beyond our expectatios, and anyone who knows us would tell you, we're hard to satisfy. Not only was the food and combinations amazing, the service was perfect. They also offer an excellent gluten free pizza dough and it's wonderful. The lamb is wonderfull and the meatball appetizers are a must. I could go on, OK, the wine,... More
