Have been going for several years and always pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Is usually busy on weekends.

There was a guy playing guitar and singing in the space next door so the half hour wait for a table was pleasant. My wife loves the sea bass. I had paella and it was excellent also.

Not that the other two times we visited weren't charms, but the first time there must've been some food contamination in the kitchen as I had a reaction after dinner. I am allergic to shellfish and crustaceans and this restaurant serves both. I am very careful, and often choose to just order carefully and not make a big deal about... More

BY FAR THE BEST PLACE TO EAT IN ROCKWALL! Amazing staff, owners, and food--you will not be disappointed. Don't be surprised if it's hard to get a seat, because it's that good. Al, Kevin, and Curtis are the best, and Alfredo and his apprentices are incredible. Jacob, Mandy, and Jessica are amazing bartenders, and Matt and Eddie keep the food... More

First time to this establishment after moving and boy was it fantastic. Great atmosphere for a business lunch! Blue crab dip was fantastic and had a bunch of crab meat. Pizza is delicious and doesn't even need ranch dipping sauce for those who like to eat their pizza that way and...I've never been a fan of bananas foster...But MY GOODNESS!... More

My wife and I always enjoy eating here. This time we had the pizza and salad. The waitress suggested a nice wine. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable.

Zanatas has got to be my favorite Italian restaurant ever! Stone oven baked pizza and the best gluten free crust ever! The salads are amazing and I get a spinach pear gargonzola salad w candied pecans that is incredible every time we go! Zanata's banana foster is the best we have had across the USA. They are always packed and... More

Have no idea why folks like this restaurant. We go about once or twice a year. Always limp and soggy pizza. Not impressed.

I had been to Zanata's sister restaurant in Rowlett and had a wonderful experience so I was anxious to try Zanata's and see what they had. I went last night with my daughter and I was not disappointed. Upon entrance to the restaurant, we were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated. The restaurant was semi crowded but not...

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.
