A Special Place for Cool, Refreshing Summer Drinks and Great Food, Too

This summer, join the family at Zinicola where you can choose from a wide range of lamb, veal, fresh vegetables, chicken and seafood, served over a variety of greens in a select offering of cool and refreshing salads or with a variety of pastas—made from scratch, just as Richard’s mother and grandmother prepared them.

Feeling Casual and Sociable?

You’ve come to the right place! Zinicola embraces the belief that fine, elegant dining should be enjoyed in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Patrons of Zinicola at Ballantyne Village can enjoy outside dining complete with a fully stocked bar where chilled wine and innovative concoctions of cool flavors and fine spirits come together to quench your thirst!

Enjoy your choice of a fine selection of martinis ranging from the Italian Apple with Absolute Vanilla Vodka, Sour Apple Schnapps and Cranberry Juice to the Espresso Martini with Espresso Vodka, Vanilla Vodka and Cream—you’re sure to find the perfect beverage to please everyone in your party!

You can also go with one of Zinicola’s classic Italian cocktails such as the Old Fashioned—a combination of Bulleit Bourbon, Orange Bitters and Simple Syrup served with a cherry on top or The Italian Mule—a perfect mix of Limoncello, Amaretto and Ginger Beer.  Don't forget about Mimosas and refreshing sparkling wines too.

Italian dishes and pizza served from a wood-fired oven are made with the purest ingredients and can be served to guests in the outdoor seating area or in quiet private dining areas.  Like all meals, salads, appetizers and desserts are prepared professionally and served to you under a blanket of stars.

Enjoy authentic Italian cuisine and cool drinks at their finest by letting the Zinicola family treat you like family for your choice of lunch or dinner!
