    We had good expectations about the restaurant but the food was average for the price. We also paid $10 per bottle of still water and the waitress opened 2 of them before asking us. That is probably why it was so empty. Very disappointed.

    I booked for my husband’s 30th birthday dinner. I disclosed this at the time of reservation (which was well over few days before our arrival). We got a seat half way out the jazz room, so literally every waiter going in and out was pounding on my husbands chair. The waiter was rude to pick up our appetizer plates when we weren’t done. Due to extreme noise level, we couldn’t converse to one another, let alone telling the waiter to not pick up plates. They self included 20% gratuity. For what? A horrible seating? A terrible service? A noise level so bad that a small tiny table of 4 can’t talk to each other. I choose not to stay longer than appetizers and neither will I recommend this place to anyone looking for a classy experience.

    Das Restaurant fällt nur durch die extreme Lautstärke und die übermäßige Hektik auf. Man denkt man wäre in einer Railway Station. Wenig Freundlichkeit. Volles Haus daher keine Zeit für den Gast.

    The evening was very poor value for money. The group at the table next to us were seriously drunk and their behaviour was lewd and boisterous. The singer was interupted on several occasions Considering the total cost of the evening I consider this to be a major failing on behalf of management to allow this situation to develop. Extremely disappointing.

    We had a work reunion of 6 guys, who are mostly retired. The food is consistently great every time we go there (we have been coming for years). The service was friendly and attentive. The owners stopped by as if we were old friends. You can hear the music from the bar in the dining room which adds to the experience of being in San Francisco...we were expecting Tony Bennett.

    Horrible service! Waiters are a joke, constantly forget orders and mess things up. Zero etiquettes. Our waiter would lean and bring his face to like few inches from ours! One guy forced us to go to different section and said we will have to pay for some music! Food was not worth the money!

    First visit to Zingari and could not have been happier with the vibe, food, and service. The dishes we ordered, one pasta and one chicken, were both very well crafted and very flavorful. Definitely a step above most Italian restaurants around. Look forward to going back and enjoying the jazz in the bar as well.

    The service is great, ambiance too. I was disappointed with my main course Zingari fettuccine and dessert bread pudding. Portioning was on the small side. I had to get more bread. The bread was great. My friend had the fish which was great. My husband had ravioli which was great. I guess I chose the wrong plate.

    Honestly we wanted a nice date and to order many different things. Unfortunately our server wasn’t very attentive and was flat out rude. We wanted to order a bottle of sparkling and he brought us a glass and then ran off before I could say anything. So honestly I don’t think I want to go back. We ended up ordering just an appetizer because he literally ignored us and made me uncomfortable.

    We came to SF on a trip from Los Angeles with a group of friends. This spot seemed like a good choice as it was pretty close to our hotel downtown. As soon as we got to our table we were very confused by the layout and extremely quiet awkwardness of the place. It says it’s a jazz bar but we were on the complete other side and there was zero vibe in there. We asked to be moved but they said nothing was available in the jazz room. The pastas were pretty good but the carpaccio appetizer had no flavor. I really wanted to like this place but I would not recommend it unfortunately.

    We had a wonderful experience here, on our first visit to San Francisco from Australia. The jazz trio was outstanding, and the food and service exceptional. We loved the intimate, romantic atmosphere. I was a little surprised/disappointed to find a 20% tip pre-added into the check before I received it. However, I put this down to my being unfamiliar with local customs, and paid it without complaint. It really was a great experience overall.

    Da italiano posso dire che ha svolto dignitosamente la funzione di un buon pasto in America; avevamo bisogno di mangiare un piatto di pasta (dopo giorni di cibo americano) e non è stato affatto male. Pasta cotta al dente e condimenti non troppo elaborati! Consigliamo tagliatelle della nonna! Servizio eccellente ma non parlano assolutamente italiano!! Da provare!

    Terrible. Service was awful and food was just ok.. You can tell that they add gratuity in advance. Never got our appetizer and server never checked on us until after our dinner plates were cleared. Worst experience in a restaurant in months. $118 for mushy pasta and a server who did not care at all. Do not go here.

    For the last 10+ years when we come to San Francisco we always stay at The Donatello and always eat at Zingari’s on our last night in town. That used to be twice a year. We missed 2021 owing to covid. This year (2022) we’ve been four times. Zingari’s appears to be under new management, but with the old menu (though its possible its been passed-down to the next generation of family). Unfortunately, the quality of the meal - flavors, spices, etc. - has gone down-hill. Service is still excellent and ambiance pleasant; however, in the end we come to a restaurant for the meal. With four visits under our belt we both agreed that we need to find a new restaurant.
