    3 of us each had a different pasta dish. All were outstanding. Gemmelli Nero pasta was super fresh and tasty. Rigatoni with short ribs was awesome as was the the lemon ricotta shells. Srvice was attentive but not overbearing

    I am very limited in my food choices. Zinnas is good with subbing gf pasta I'm dishes. Unfortunately I also can't eat dairy so many of the very delicious dishes that my companions choose are off the menu for me.

    Very busy on Friday evening, but the staff was patient, pleasant and helpful. The kitchen (or another server) may have messed up our order, so three of our four entrees were MIA for a bit, but our server fixed it quickly. The food was delicious. Indoors, the noise level is pretty high. We sat outdoors, lakeside, so it didn’t bother us. It’s a bit pricey for us, but we didn’t feel ripped off on account of the menu and quality of the food.
    Zinna's BistroResponded on May 28, 2024
    Thank you for sharing your experience! We're glad to hear that our staff was patient, pleasant, and helpful despite the busy Friday evening. We apologize for the mix-up with your order but are pleased that it was resolved quickly. It's great to know you enjoyed the delicious food and the lakeside seating. We appreciate your feedback on the noise level and pricing, and we'll continue to work on enhancing our overall dining experience. We hope to see you again soon! - Z Team
