    Too loud. They always have someone singing and they’re never very good….just loud. Makes it hard to have a conversation with people at your own table. Food is great but we had finished eating and it took forever for the waiter to come back so we could pay.

    First table we were seated at was not acceptable, in an area that reminded us of McDonald’s , the chairs were folding chairs, changed us to a very nice table in another area of restaurant Food was delicious, server was wonderful. Will definitely return.

    Every time I go to Zanti, I like it even more than the previous visit. Last night they really outdid themselves. Our server was very friendly, our food was delicious, and we really enjoyed the live music coming from the bar area.

    Setting and atmosphere is lovely, server was fantastic, starters were great, we had calamari and risotto balls, I felt my entree was overpriced I had the lamb shank is so bucco. Fantastic wine selection. Live music, singer/musician was really good enjoyed listening. Nonetheless we enjoyed our meal and will return a third time in a few weeks.

    The sangria used to be so good but they’ve changed it and it was so bitter. We ordered the ravioli special and the portion was small,soupy and tasteless. It cost $24!!! Waiter did not tell us cost of special. We’ve always loved this place but last night was a disappointment.

    Went there for our anniversary dinner. We had a bruschetta a appetizer, I had a cocktail called the "G" which is jalapeño infused tequila with mango & Contreaux, my husband had an Italian white wine. For entrees I had the Fruitte de Mare with black taglitini, my husband had the Brazino with crab, and we shared 2 sides, roasted potatoes and Brussel sprouts. Everything was delicious. Our waiter Damien was great. The noise level was really high so we had to yell to each other - but that is a good sign of a crowded place because it's good. Would recommend going early (our reservation was for 6:15 and the place was already packed).

    Always enjoy the food. Service can be spotty when really busy and noise level too high to carry a conversation without leaning and talking loud. Would go elsewhere for a quiet dinner.

    Apparently early dinner is not the time to go for a quiet dinner. We were surrounded by kids tables (one was a birthday party) and the sound was deafening. A few of the kids were playing on devices with the sound on. We LOVE Zanti, the food was amazing as always… but it was disappointing to have that kind of atmosphere, we’ve never experienced that before. Our server was frazzled and rushed. We never got bread for the table and she took away my drink before I was done. It was just a fast grab walking past the table. Lol We will be back, but hope that this was an outlier and not the new normal. Don’t let this discourage you from going and checking it out for yourself. Only sharing so that they are aware. It’s one of our favorite places.

    Service continues to be an issue here. Got our appetizer before water, drinks or the bread for the table. Kitchen cooked the wrong dish for one of us despite the server entering it in the system correctly. Also, asked for a booth since our daughter had a broken foot and it would be a lot more comfortable and was told by FOH that the open booth was being held for a "reservation that had requested a booth" Meanwhile we also had a reservation and the other party was not there. The food is great but this is now the third time in a row the service has not been good. They look well trained but have just too many tables.

    Everything was perfect. We celebrated my wife’s birthday. Fried pear and cheese salad was excellent. My wife had the mushroom and prosciutto pizza which more than enough for two. I had an off menu pasta that was also excellent. Great service.
