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.
