    The ambiance was lovely, the service was great, the food was fresh and very good but most of the tables were empty. We could not understand why on a Friday night at 7:30, we would be the only patrons in the restaurant.

    The service was extremely attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. The food was delicious. The fried calamari may have been the best I have eaten in a very long time. Crispy and tender without being greasy or rubbery. The pasta was perfectly al dente.

    I joined 4 friends for lunch at this lovely redesigned restaurant. We were treated like royalty and the waiter made every effort to acomodate our wishes. I am a vegetarian and the chef was happy to be creative and come up with a delicious panini of grilled vegetables--absolutely delicious. My friends had fish and really enjoyed it.

    This was our first time at this lovely restaurant. The ambiance was great….large space but cozy feeling in the decor. The service was very attentive. We shared the beet salad which was excellent. I ordered the orange roughy special which was prepared very interestingly….could have had a drop more seasoning, but I did enjoy it. My boyfriend ordered the veal special and he loved it. We shared the coffee gelato for dessert…that is my favorite flavor. We would return. A bit pricey on some dishes but it was a very nice dining experience.

    Dinner was great! Zana d should be a local hot spot! I remember first going when it first opened. The food was very good, the service was very good but we didn't go back since future friends who went said there was no vibe. On Valentines Day the place was full and the food could not be any better, the staff could not be any more attentive so it would be nice if the locals go and continue the vibe on valentines Day!!

    It was not crowded when we arrived at 6:15 New Years Eve but the place filled up as it got later. The service is very attentive. They serve bread with 2 spreads - olive and sun-dried tomato. Had to request butter. The eggplant napoleon was just OK - cold eggplant and tomatoes and not enough fig reduction - had to ask for more. Their entrees come with potatoes, not pasta. So we got a separate order of linguini, which cost an additional $13.00. My chicken was very good - it came with risotto, but no vegetables. The other dinner came with vegetables so we shared those. The banana chocolate mousse cake was very rich and we enjoyed that. All in all it was a pleasant dining experience and I would dine there again.

    We were greeted with a very warm welcome that set the mood. The space is very pretty -- more elegant than the local competition (which is a good thing). Service was perfect -- we were attentively catered to without feeling like people were hovering. We started with two perfect dry martinis. For starters, the spiedini romano was delicate for what can often be a heavy dish. The chicken saltimbocca, which looked like it was going to be too rich, actually was the star of the evening. The ravioli trio was tasty too. This was a very pleasant experience and we will definitely return. Also, make a note that they have a very pretty bar area which looks like a great spot to meet for drinks -- something we don't have a lot of in Tenafly.

    Wanted to try a new,local Italian restaurant. Menu looked good but dishes didn't meet their descriptions on the menu. Chicken was supposed to be Parmesan crusted but was served in a sauce that made the coating soggy.

    I've driven past the intersection almost every day for the last 5 weeks and never noticed the place until I searched for a place for dinner. Great location, valet parking, Excellent service. Friendly, attentive staff, and outstanding food. The lemon sorbet dessert is wonderful and enough to share. We didn't know that so got one each. Delicious but sharing would have been just fine. Like McArthur said, we will be back.

    Consistently fresh, delicious, creative dishes without being fussy or pretentious. Can eat a beautiful full course dinner, or eat light with a fantastic soup, salad, appetizer and/or half order of any of their scrumptious pastas. (Chicken soup with egg and spinach is remarkable.) The most accommodating service, including tailoring your order to your preferences and dietary needs. Big but cozy bar, great to eat at as well. Why more people in the area don't know about it is a mystery!

    Had a quick dinner on a Sunday night. The staff is very cordial and willing to please. Save for another party of six we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food came out very quickly and had that warmed over taste to it. Perhaps on a busier night it would be better.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Zana-D! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Nice wine list. We had a large party with 10 guests and our servers were attentive without being overbearing. The ambience of the restaurant is conducive to a large party or a romantic dinner for two. We'll be back!
