This is my new Favorite Restaurant.

At this price point you can't beat it for price and quality.

It's a BYOB which keeps your overall check to a very manageable amount .

My wife and I are dinning here almost weekly

The service was outstanding, and the meals were all delicious - as always. It’s all indoors now because of cold weather but masks all around and table separations were diffident that we all felt safe. Will return again soon!

Highly recommend

This is an excellent 3 star restaurant. Or a very good diner. Nothing more nothing less.. anyone who's been to a nice Italian restaurant will agree.

Don't go if you don't like a ton of garlic on everything.

Best Veal Chop Milanese ever! Beats all others I've tasted. Burrata has an interest twist to it and was really good also. New location is really nice and the wine bottle sculpture is fantastic.

Thanksgiving! Our first ever at a restaurant and what an amazing experience. The service was excellent, food delicious and well sized portions, dessert was decadent. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated with rebar trees with wine bottle branches, and mosaic walls created from the tops of wine cases. And if you are a fan of Fran Sinatra, be sure to use the bathroom before you leave. Thank you Zinna’s. Your hospitality made us feel right like we were dining at home without the clean up!

Thanksgiving dinner was hands down - one of the best turkey dinners I've ever had! I'll never cook a thanksgiving dinner again - we'll go to Zinna's. Turkey was moist and delicious, the sides were perfect. We had enough leftovers for lunch the next day.

Thanksgiving dinner for two. Started off with apple and butternut squash soup, which was tasty. But I had indigestion later in the evening and I think that something in the soup did not agree with me. Had the roasted turkey with stuffing, root vegetables, mashed potatoes, and cornbread. Turkey was moist, stuffing was good, mashed potatoes came as a scoop and it was hard (no gravy!), vegetables were good as was the cornbread. Also had the “pumpkin surprise “ for dessert, which was pumpkin pie (crust was detached from the pie when served), along with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream that was not applied in a pleasing fashion. Ok but visually was not appealing. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. Ambiance, sitting by the window overlooking the lake, was nice also. Servings were generous and we had plenty to bring home.
