The food was excellent. However, the ambiance doesn't match. The dining room is small with not much atmosphere. Did not hear any background music to liven things up.

Excellent food. Great service. OK live jazz the night we were there.

The big downside is that the tables for two were far too close together for comfort during COVID. We were eating inside within a foot of complete strangers, which made me nervous and detracted from an otherwise nice date night. This place would be perfect if they removed one table from the row in the back to space them out more.

Lovely experience. Italian food at its best. House made pasta and you can tell. Bruschetta appetizer rich and delicious as was tomato salad. Wine was delicious if a bit pricey. Music accompaniment was really nice, but more pop favorites vs jazz. Service was excellent. They really appreciate their customers.

What a phenomenal experience! We sat in the Piano Room and enjoyed the beautiful jazz trio while dining. From the well-paired wine, appetizers and entrees, we had an exquisite culinary experience. The fig crostini and lamb chops were highlights. We will definitely be returning!

The food was good not great. I like my pasta al dente but it could have used a few more minutes. wine was expensive. We had to pay 10.00 pp for the music trio. The singer kept asking for requests but when she got them she didn’t know them. She seemed to have an attitude. After 45mins they took a pretty long break. So long that we ended up leaving. There were two of us so I I don’t know why they put a automatic 20% tip on my bill.

The Jazz Room was great. Small, intimate. Even though we had a noisy party of 6 in the room, the music volume was kept down. Dennis Dove Band played. The food was excellent and the wine list extensive. I was hesitant to eat at a hotel restaurant but was pleasantly surprised at the quality and service we received.

Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here at Zingari. We opted for the jazz performance along with dinner and it was beautiful.
The food was great, drinks very good and overall had a great experience at this place.
Would definitely recommend trying this place out for date night or a special occasion if you love jazz.

The Piano Room experience is worth it, especially if you have the time to linger around a little longer, you could possibly get a private showing when the band comes out in between the two sessions for a little rehearsal/practice, which is absolutely enchanting with a date.

Overall our experience at Zingari Ristorante for my girlfriend’s birthday was a great one. It was a little loud for the live Jazz but entertaining. We got placed close to the bar which encouraged some people at the bar to stand awkwardly close to the table at times which was definitely annoying and distracting from the experience. The food was amazing however and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals and drinks. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice evening out.

Disappointing experience. JAZZ was not jazz but a singer who could only do Motown. Jazz room was a small area in conjuction with the bar that was poorly planned and congested. Food was poor attempt at Italian.

Excellent food and beautiful location. Service was exemplary. My martini was one-third the size of a regular martini for $17. The servings were minute for the price. We had a 20% gratuity added to our bill and honestly we would have tipped more but felt like it should not be mandatory but earned. I will never go back because I felt the prices were way too high for the amount of food received. If you are hungry you should choose another restaurant.

The whole jazz dinner experience was incredible!!! The food itself was absolutely phenomenal, the best dinner I have had at a nice restaurant in a long time. The music was amazing, and the musicians were very entertaining. My sister found this completely by accident, and so glad we did! Can’t wait to visit again!

Good food and service but fair ambiance and a bit overpriced relative to other reliable, more lively/comfortable Italian options in the area like 54 Mint. Appetizers and entrees were exceptional - pasta cooked perfectly and very flavorful. Desserts were average. Staff was welcoming. Good spot for a quiet night out with your spouse.

All great, kind staff.. took 4 kids which I think made everyone nervous especially being guests in the jazz club. But no issue, as they’re well behaved. Pricey but enjoyed overall. Band took a break and graciously posed for a pic.

Do not do it. We booked for Sunday brunch and were the only people the entire time. Should tell you something. There were dirty windows and bulbs burned out. I will say the food was decent as was the service but not much fun. Not an enjoyable birthday celebration.

Maybe close and do a reset?
