Ate at Zanata recently and the food was amazing. I tried the Z House salad and House Pizza (with sausage crumbled) . Everything was so fresh and flavorful. I will definitely be going back again soon to try other of their deliciousness.

Your Pumpkin Raviolis is one of the best food items I have ever eaten. It was so good I wanted to return and have it again before I left town. I was told it is seasonal dish. I hope when I return to your lovely...city it is still on the menu. The party I was with enjoyed their food as well.More

This restaurant far succeeded my expectations. We had spent the whole day looking for a special place to eat before finishing our trip to Dallas and we stumbled upon Zanata. Food was fresh, so tasty and well cooked, the drinks were perfectly chilled. The ambiance...in the restaurant was very pleasant and their staff was super friendly! I would say this place is a MUST if you’re ever in Rockwall!More

Best Bananas Foster ever!! All good is great and they have wonderful specials. Very noisy atmosphere, but you can get to go and eat outside at some tables in the San Jacinto square. Pimento and hummus tray is a must!

I probably should not write this review because it might give too many others the “Let’s Go To Zanata’s After Farmer’s Market” idea. The market opened last weekend and my hubby and I had a yummy pepperoni pizza and wine after shopping around the market....Great service! Delicious food! We will be back on Saturday!More

This is the type of restaurant to where if you have never eaten here, you are missing out on life. The chef and cooks here deserves a gold star or medal because that’s how good the food is. We had the crab stuffed avocados for...an appetizer and it was amazing! Extremely good, this is a dish to not miss out on. I had the lobster ravioli which was also amazing. My husband had the Happy Hour pizza and he said it was fantastic. The service was great! Our waitress was very attentive and amazing. We had a great experience here and we most definitely will be back. Another person wrote a review about covid and no mask. All staff were wearing masks (even though Texas now has no restrictions, they all still had masks on). I’m 7 months pregnant and felt safe eating here. I now have a new favorite restaurant that’s close to my home to come visit. So glad we gave this place a try.More

The food was absolutely fabulous. The service impeccable. It was so nice to see the staff behaving as real cordial people and not like clowns all masked and gloved up like some Ebola unit. The only thing distracting was some jerk who should have stayed...home if he was so frightened that grim reaper was after him. If masks were so important to him he should have remained outside. Yet these folks tolerated this clown. I commend their patience.More

Locally owned and operated, you can never go wrong with Zanata. Food is always fresh and delicious with daily specials. The service is consistently good regardless of how busy the restaurant gets throughout the day. Call for a reservation, or walk in and grab a...beverage at the bar while you wait for a table, or get take out, no matter what, you will be treated and served well.More

We used to frequent Zanata’s at least once a month. Have not been in since the pandemic until recently. Very disappointed, not in the food, but the massive lack of mask wearing by employees handling the food, the bar personnel, the wait staff. How thoughtless...and selfish to wait on tables without wearing masks. I was appalled watching one waitress waiting on tables with her mask on her chin, one of those tables had one customer who appeared to be in his 90’s another in his 80’s. Any business who blatantly chooses to be part of the COVID-19 problem and not part of the solution gets a thumbs down and no longer has my business. BTW the manager was setting a poor example for his employees by not wearing his mask either.More

My hubby and I and a couple of friends every now and then have declared this our favorite Rockwall lunch dining spot during this crazy pandemic! The food cannot be beat. However, most importantly, we feel that good safe guards are in place to prevent...the spread of coronavirus. The cleaning procedures that I have witnessed seem detailed, the servers wear masks correctly (NOT below their noses!), there is hand sanitizer when you enter the restaurant etc. And, the pizza and salads are SO good!More

Zanata’s has been our main “go to” restaurant since this crazy pandemic started. We have ordered several pizzas for curbside pickup and started dining in house as soon as allowed. I swear that our group of 8-10 friends have tried every pizza place in Rockwall...proper and many in Rockwall county. The pizza choice, customization & flavor (thanks to the imported Italian pizza ovens) cannot be best! Plus, the owners and staff are the best!More

The pizza was extremely greasy. I mean so greasy each slice was soggy with grease. The crust was burnt as well. This was sadly my first and last visit here. Sorry ,it’s a no for me.

Great little restaurant with something for everyone. Nice bar area and two dining areas. Great feel. Had the crab stuffed avocado to start. Good but would have liked more cab and less filler. The sea bass with roasted veggies was amazing. Cooked perfectly. 1/2 price...bottle wine night on Sunday is a big plus. Friendly and efficient staff. Manager in active and interactive. Fabulous find in a quaint area.More

World Class Quality and Taste!!! If you’re looking for a new restaurant or want to try a local favorite (local meaning N. Texas) - it’s worth the trip to Rockwall. For my foodie friends in Highland Park, Southlake, Frisco, Westlake, Dallas, Ft. Worth and all...over N. Texas - make the drive to Rockwall - this restaurant alone is worth the trip! Our experience: During the Covid-19 crisis we wanted to help our local businesses, and Zanata was one of our favorites which we had not visited in awhile. The orders to-go were great quality, so we decided today to dine in and had the Standard pizza (a margarita pizza) - The pizza was unbelievable! I have had excellent pizza across the country and in several cities in Italy, and this was by far the best one I’ve ever had - the crust was perfect, the basil was fresh, and the sauce and cheese were the perfect amount - It was so much better than any pizza I’ve ever had, I’m wondering if it’s possible for them to repeat it... I’ll find out this weekend when I go back. Thank you to the Zanata team for bringing the art of great food to Rockwall, and providing a restaurant DFW can be proud to call local. Whether your local, in N. Texas or visiting from out of town make the drive - it’s worth it!More
