We were originally scheduled to celebrate my daughter’s birthday dinner on Monday, February 15. But as we all know, the restaurant had to be closed due to the storm. And honestly, we wouldn’t have been able to make it. After a pretty rough week, we finally felt in a position to celebrate with a dinner out on Sunday, and Zanti’s did not disappoint! We had a great table, the food was fantastic (as always), and they comped us the very special chocolate sphere dessert (which we never expected, but absolutely appreciated). And I think after such a rough week, it all just felt a little extra special. Thank you Zanti’s for helping us celebrate our sweet girl.

Once we were seated it was fine but we had to wait almost 40 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. I understand that there are some things out of the restaurants control but when we entered we were to a 10-15 minute wait and it ended up more than twice that. Place was obviously overbooked but wouldn’t admit it.

we really enjoyed Zanti on Valentines Day. I liked that they did not offer a limited menu but had a couple of nice specials along with their regular menu. One of the specials was a delicious surf and turf. A filet with a generous portion of crab topping with other sides. on the lower cost side of the menu a chicken dish on polenta topped with wilted spinach was also good. we enjoyed the wine, calamari, and dessert. the server was just right with timing and we look forward to eating again there soon.

First time at the restaurant. While overall the food was good and service was exceptional, I was disappointed that our first impression was with the front desk host wearing her mask below the nose. With a lot of hesitation due to Covid, we went for dinner at Zanti as we heard such positive comments from friends. It was troubling to speak with the hostess who was not properly wearing her mask.

Meatballs, ravioli, fish/crab dish and tiramisu were all fantastic. The tiramisu might be one of the best I’ve ever had. Asked our server about the whole red snapper on the board when you walk in, and was told that it was out of season and they haven’t gotten around to changing the sign. Our server was not prepared enough to be on the floor. She couldn’t tell us when happy hour ended and had no clue what we meant by Riesling. At least she was attentive and nice. The Friday night live music was terrible. We thought that there was karaoke on the patio, until I saw the woman behind the keyboard. The food saved the day for us.

Second time going there. Staff there were all friendly and attentive but not intrusive. We sat out on the patio which was great, noise level was down and there was enough distance between tables that you felt comfortable. The food was fresh and hot. Simple Margherita pizza for appetizer, caprese salad and entrees. Very enjoyable experience will be back.
