Lo Zingaro was an Italian restaurant. The restaurantÕs menu consisted of traditional and authentic Italian dishes, flavored with original ingredients. People could order arugula salad, lamb sausage pasta and pizza. Other popular dishes of Lo Zingaro included the insalata, suppli and charcuterie platter. Another good dish of the restaurant was the gnocchi.
For dessert, the restaurant served tiramisu. Lo Zingaro also prepared fresh crushed tomato sauce. Other dishes the restaurant served included the tagletelle bolonaise, fettucini with lamb and mushroom and Antipasto della casa. To wash down the meal, the Italian restaurant served apple martini and white wine.
I had friends in from out of town and saw online that Lo Zingaro had some good reviews, so took a chance. My friends and I were all really pleased with the food, the management and the staff at Lo Zingaro. I had the best pizza I've ever tasted, and all of the food was top notch. The service was very personal and friendly. I would highly recommend this place!
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.
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 best fresh homemade pasta I've ever had. The fettuccine and tagliatelle are delicious!
Really great pizza
Cold risotto balls.. Too big and too salty
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.
Loved this place. Good service, very tasty food. Pizza was amazing. Deserts were fantastic, especially tiramisu
Surprised it was so quiet on a Friday night but it ensured that service was quick and attentive
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.
For anyone who enjoyed pizza in Italy this will bring back fond memories. Very authentic Italian pizza and generally good Italian food.
The food was delicious! Will definitely go back there again...
Very authentic and delicious food. Great to share a couple of plates because the servings were huge and you will definitely want to taste everything on this menu.
Fantastic service - very attentive and friendly.
