My husband and I decided to share an appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. We are big eaters, and it was plenty. And WOW, was it delicious. We started with the Blue Crab Dip, followed by the Bruschetta Salad. We were extremely impressed at this point. Then they brought our entree - the Rib Eye Florentine. The flavor was amazing. Seriously.... More

While there dinner is good, lunch is by far my favorite! The chicken salad sandwich is great! The pickles served on the side are really good too and you can't go wrong with either the white or red sangria! Both of the sangrias are light and refreshing. I can say I have ever had anything bad here. The staff and... More

Great lunch. A friend and I split the avocado with shrimp salad appetizer and a specialty salad. Both great but would have the avocado appetizer next time with maybe a cup of soup. It was soooo good. Good menu and in rebuilt downtown Rockwall with shopping in the area.

This is a great place for lunch or a romantic dinner out. It gets very crowded on the weekends, but if you plan it right you can have a nice glass of wine while you wait for your table. The salad is enough for two people and the pizza is amazing.

This place was recommended to us as being "a different way of dining" !! And we can say it was..the interior design is rustic with hints of minimalism, and at least quieter than most "chain"-restaurants with 27 TV-sets above the bar. Zanata only has two ! If you want to watch a game, stay at home...but come to Zanata if... More

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.
