The food was average. Have tried it several times as it's close to home. However, being older the noise was much too loud and we could not have a conversation with the people we were with.

Description
Zinna's Bistro is a family-owned and operated Italian-American bistro that opened in January 2010. It is one of the hidden gems that make up the treasured Cranbury community. At Zinna's, we believe good food is simple food made with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available including a variety of produce that grows in our very own on-premise garden.
