Friendly restaurant with a nice menu! The selections are creative and specials are offered. We had a thanksgiving sandwich and vegetable focaccia. Both were great and made with very fresh ingredients. The service was prompt and professional. The atmosphere is welcoming.

Zinna's is a very comfortable local restaurant offering both outside and inside dining. The food is above average and their pricing is in line with other restaurants of the same caliber. We had an enjoyable visit and the staff were there to please.

The food was average. Have tried it several times as it's close to home. However, being older the noise was much too loud and we could not have a conversation with the people we were with.

Description
Zinna's Bistro is a family-owned and operated Italian-American bistro that opened in January 2010. It is one of the hidden gems that make up the treasured Cranbury community. At Zinna's, we believe good food is simple food made with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available including a variety of produce that grows in our very own on-premise garden.
