Their second match of the quadrangular tournament comes against Samoa, who will be riding the crest of a wave having beaten Scotland last time out.
And Zanni believes that Samoa, like Italy, are a rugby nation on the rise.
“We allowed South Africa to dictate the game in the first half,” said Zanni, who scored a try against Scotland in this year’s RBS 6 Nations.
“That was a mistake you can't afford to do that, especially against a team like South Africa. After the break we reorganised but we still made some mistakes with the ball and in our tactical game.
“There are more negatives than positives from Saturday but it's a good stimulus to prepare in the best possible way for the game against Samoa. You can forget about the big, quick, disorganised Samoan sides of the past.
“This team that beat Scotland, it big and quick but they know exactly what to do on the pitch. They have improved every part of their game and we saw against Scotland that they are in great form.”
