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.

This is my absolute favorite place in Rockwall to eat. We go there every year for my birthday, because I am in love with their banana's foster dessert. It's not a normal bananas foster. It's a cake with a crumbly outside, creamy inside, served hot with ice cream on top and flaming sauce. My family and I have never had... More

We have enjoyed Zanata since its first opening many years ago. The founders are still operating this restaurant and have fanned out to other locations. We know the owners and admire their accomplishments. This is a place where you can get a pizza or a gourmet meal. They have a good choice of wine and beer. It is always busy... More

Met out of town friends there and we all had different dishes. I had the supreme pizza which was excellent. Others had ravioli which they lived and different pizzas. All very good. Thoroughly enjoyed the Zanata and my friends and look forward to returning. I highly recommend you try it. Don't think you will be disappointed.

We visited Zanata on a Saturday evening. We had been told that they did not accept reservations for groups of less than 6, and having only 4 in our party, we decided to go about 5:45. We only had to wait about 20 minutes and were seated. We are glad we went when we did because the restaurant filled up... More

This is one of our go to restaurants. We have never had anything bad. My only complaint would be the wait is often long.

One of the best places to eat in Rockwall. If you're wanting to venture away from all the chain restaurants Rockwall has to offer, this is the place!!! Steaks are amazing. Salads are innovative and delicious. And the pizza is phenomenal. They bake all their pizzas right there in the open kitchen in a wood-fired oven. Everything is homemade and... More

Four in our family headed to downtown for a Zanata's pizza today. They have pizza ovens from Italy and bake an awesome pie. We usually get the Hubbard (with pepperoni and sausage and other toppings), but the duo who wanted pizza today wanted just pepperoni and cheese. It was a hit. We had the blue crab dip and it was...
