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.

My husband and I enjoy walking up here when we can so we can order a good bottle of wine and walk home. We usually just get their spinach salad, the the pears and etc. I forget what the name of it is. Then we order one of their speciality pizzas. They are baked in a real stone oven. The... More

Went for dinner with friends. Let me just say that Zanata is my favorite new spot! The food, drinks and service was top notch. Ribeye Florentine is to die for. The owner, Kevin, was a hoot, as well! What a great spot.

Not only is the food exceptional but the service is 5 star all the way. We eat here at least 3 times a month. Make sure to have the Pizza or check the specials on the board.

Stopped in for lunch based upon the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Was a little disappointed. First off, it took 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee. We ordered off the sandwich menu, for me most of the sandwiches were light on substance, more bread that meat. Ham and cheese was bland, the chicken salad sandwich had good taste just... More

I have heard so many great reviews so we decided to try it and it met every expectation. We had the "Z" house salad to start, then 3 of our entrees were salmon, steak Diane and blackened lemon fish. We ended with bananas foster and the chocolate cake. Every thing was amazing and the staff was so friendly. I can't... More

Chef-driven menu full of healthy and tasty choices! Large, interesting "sharable" salads. Nice wine list. Outstanding woodfired pizzas with delicate thin crusts and gourmet toppings. Sunday nights are busy with 1/2 price bottles of wine! Expect a short wait at this popular place.

Have visited Zanata several times on either date night with hubs or with family or friends. It is one of our favorites in all of DFW, and we eat out ALOT. We have never gone here and had a bad meal. Everything we've ever ordered has been excellent. It's nice to have a choice on either going the "less expensive"... More

Zanata is nestled on the olde town square in Rockwall. It's location is as charming as the rustic open windows and reclaimed industrial decor. It is rare to find a restaurant that will please families, foodies, localvores, and meat and tater lovers alike, but Zanata does. My go-to dishes are the New York White pie (wood-fired with the freshest of... More
