  • great pizza
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    We both had a pizza each and they were great. The server was a bit odd... I asked for black pepper and parmesean on my pizza when it came to the table and he looked at me like I had 3 heads. But otherwise - great experience. I asked for a birthday cake to come right after our meal for my friend's birthday (on my opentable reservation) - and it was done just as requested. Lovely. I just wish they sang to her! =)

    I made the reservation through open table. When I called days later to confirm my group details the restaurant didn't seem to have my reso. Food was delicious but our server was rude. No greeting, no polite chat, he just seem annoyed to be working. Not sure why someone like that is in the service industry if they don't enjoy it. I have indicated two special diners and a birthday celebration and none were acknowledged.

  • Bad Service!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Had a 730pm Saturday reservation- waited 20 minutes to get seated. Once seated, it took 20min to place our drink orders and another 20 to place our food orders. 45min after that, our appetizers are nowhere to be seen. No bread either. I asked the waiter and a few minutes later, he brought out our mains. He gave us a strange, incomprehensible story about how our appetizers went missing. They did nothing to make up for the mistake and really bad service. We were so disgusted at the rude service & went elsewhere for dessert. I've been here 3 times - 1st time was great, 2nd was average, 3rd was this. What a disaster - I won't be going back to Lo Zingaro. The pizza was good but with service like that, I'd rather endure the long wait at Libretto.

    There were two people serving us - a female and then a male. Neither of them smiled when they approached our table nor did they appear friendly. We asked for recommendations and they just gave us a name of a pizza. The food was good but it wasn't flavourful - very bland.

    The food was great and the service was alright. For a bunch of Italians, it would be nice if they were a bit more upbeat and vibrant. The wait staff barely smiled the whole time we were there.

    Finally a place that makes delicious, creative pizzas! Sweet peas, favs beans, asparagus, arugula and bufula mozz...a bit soggy but delish. Great homemade pasta...the specials are great! Wine list is limited and a 5oz pour is short. Stick with the food. Can't go wrong.

    My friends an I found this little spot through blogTO and were taken by the ambiance and wonderful food. The tagliatelle is wonderful, as is their roman-styled pizzas. The tiramisu is divine! This would also make a great date spot, as the other customers were all on dates it seems. I highly recommend this place, the owner is also lovely and the chef is obviously very talented.

    We held a small surprise party at Lo Zingaro. It was a great experience. The staff was fridenly and accommodating. The food was excellent, even though the menu was a bit challenging for some that could not read Italian, but the waitress was always able to translate. Overall a great place to have a small function with friends or just a romantic night out.

    I came with my family for dinner. The server was excellent and very attentive. She was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and even brought us out a couple to taste before we made our choice. We loved the thin crust pizza and the pasta was perfect. We got a great booth table at the front. You can see the pizza chef preparing the dough in the back section of the restaurant and he even came around to ask how everything was.

    If you're looking for straight up authentic italian food, this is place to try! Small selection on the menu, but excellent options and great wine from small towns in Italy.
