So I have been to Zinna's numerous times and have had great experiences. BUT, this time has left a very bad taste in my mouth. I decided to take some colleagues for lunch and I will NEVER go back. Our server Laura was very pleasant and our meals weren't the problem. When we received the bill we were splitting it... More

Went to Zinna's with my husband on Valentines's Day. Had a 7:00 reservation and had to wait a few minutes for our table, but they were super busy and the food made up for it. We ordered the Lobster Parfait and Frutatta Salad for apps. WOW! I have never tasted anything like it before! Our server Patrick recommended the Strawberry... More

I organized a dinner for family and friends in the private room at Zinna's bistro. At the last minute I found out that a couple and their 2 children who weren't going to be able to attend were in fact attending. When I got to the restaurant I told the staff that they would be 4 more people. They had... More

I would have given 3 stars because the food was just Ok....but the additional star is for BYOB! I'm not sure if it was just because it was NYE but I thought that was pretty cool. It does have a nice ambiance and romantic feel to it but I love love love Italian food and this place just comes in... More

We ate here for our family's traditional Christmas Eve supper. The service was good and the food was tasty. We were a large group and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. We started with bread and olive oil, calamari and flatbread pizzas. Everyone ordered off the menu and not the buffet offered...............mahi, short ribs, banzino, boccatini, etc..........all came out hot.... More

Enjoyed having lunch as well as dinner once before and just recently tried their signature salad for lunch -- it was light yet satisfying! Much on their menu that I'd like to try!

Thank you for stopping by on multiple occasions, Jay! The signature salad has been on our menu since day one when we opened over six years ago. It is incredibly popular, and we are happy you enjoyed it. We hope you come again soon and try something else on the menu. More
