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.

Food was excellent, lunch service was relaxed but a little slow. Room is somewhat noisy but decor is amazing. Prices reasonable, unique and upscale dishes. Great place for a date or lunch with friends or client.

We were seated immediately and the setting is very nice. I had the meatball insalata which was delicious but I wish they gave more then 3 medium size meatballs. My colleague had another salad that looked much more filling. Overall a good experience and would go back again.

We returned to Zinnas last week for lunch after not eating there for quite a while. We always enjoy being seated in their lovely outdoor patio. The weather was perfect, the only problem was the food. I had eggs Benedict which was just ok. The hollindaise sauce was very bland.

My partner ordered the brunch burger. The first indication of a problem came when he asked for the burger to be cooked medium rare and was told by the server "all our burgers are served cooked through". Our assumption upon hearing this was that the meat being used in the burger wasn't of a good enough quality to be cooked as he requested it. The brunch burger is served with a fried egg on top. When it arrived, the yolk was very over cooked. the whole burger was dry and unenjoyable.

After this meal, we realized why we hadn't eaten here for a while. Each time we eat here,we have at least one problem which spoils our meal. There are several much better restaurants (Multo Bene, Italian Touch) in the Cranbury area, so we will not be returning to Zinnas.

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your meals. As far as the burgers we do use high quality meat but unfortunately in Middlesex County and actually most of NJ all burger meat must be cooked through. Have a great day !

I don't have enough space to say all the amazing things about this place. We had a party of 14 with separate checks and Chrissy didn't even bat an eye. They have a cozy room in the back for large parties. It was perfect!. An outdoor patio is available as well. The food was fantastic. Every person in our party was delighted and raved over and over. It is a bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny. Be mindful, this place is strictly BYOB!! Hit the liquor store on your way there. They will uncork. pour and provide ice buckets.
