Saturday lunch at Zanata's is a great Rockwall tradition after shopping at the Farmer's Market. We has the Blue Crab Dip as an appetizer and lived it. It comes with a side salad of spinach and vinaigrette dressing and is served with both bread and crackers. The Caesar salad is really big and can easily be split with 2-4 persons.... More

I have dined at Zanata countless times and never had anything but a stellar experience. Daily specials, fork to farm offerings, and wine pairing enviable of the Loire Valley's finest are a constant at Zanata. Wood fired pizzas, sea food, and steaks are prepared with equal precision and artisan attention to detail. The cocktails vary with the specials and are... More

I'd still rank Bin 303 (opposite same street) as #1 restaurant in Rockwall as it is smaller and MORE packed than Zanata. But Zanata was good as well. We had fish and salad with goat cheese and a pizza, not extrodinary dishes, but quality was good and wine fine. For a town full of burgers and nuggets and overspiced soups,... More

My wife and I went to Zanata last night. We shared all three of the specials. Oyster and Shrimp stuffed mushrooms, Copper River Salmon, and lastly the Buffalo rib eye. All three were 5 star quality. Service was exceptional. We love coming here when we're free from the kids. Never been disappointed!

We eat here about once every 3 months. The pizza is good,the blue crab dip is why we keep coming bAck..It is awesome. The reason why I gave it three stars is because the service can be bad on a slow day. The last time we went we told our waiter we wanted no dessert just the check he decided... More

This is without question the most understated dining experience we've ever experienced. We are grain free but the main dishes are so incredible, even the steaks cooked in the oven which gives them a wonderful flavor and crispness on the edges, yum. The wine is also a treat, get the house, it's special and not in a bottle but from... More

This is not your normal Italian restaurant. Your food is very well prepared and presented. I highly recommend the salads; and they are big enough for two. Come early. As one reviewer said, he rooms sounds bounce off of all the hard surfaces in the room making conversation is difficult.
