The setting is intimate near the jazz band, and the food was amazing. We had the rigatoni and fettuccini, which were both in good portions and very delicious. The jazz band was nice enough to also take a request for our anniversary. Customer service was also very attentive and welcoming. Definitely going to go again!

On a Sunday night for the 6pm reservation in the Piano Room, there were only 3 tables of guests so it was like a personal concert. I have not been on Friday or Sat when it is more crowded so not sure how loud it will be. I will be back to try though! Lovely place; jewel in the city. Great staff, very attentive. The food was divine, even the simple spaghetti and meatballs.

The food is okay, nothing extraordinary. We received the worst service imaginable, the waiter was very rude, the food took forever and when I asked if the tip was included he told me it wasn’t, I was gonna leave him 20% but the check already said that 20% was included. This restaurant should capacitate their personnel so they stop robbing customers. Never going back.

Food is great. We selected the live music dining experience for an additional $13 per person including service fees and additional charges. The music was okay and it is unfortunate that the table we were sat at faced the piano directly. This offered a very loud experience to the four of us as we had to scream to each other when conversing. It became a bit uncomfortable towards the end of our experience and we cut it short.

I think it’ll be helpful for the restaurant to rethink the lay out of the tables in such a small space to share with the live band. Perhaps, the lay out could offer the space to have all the tables face forward to the corner where the piano is placed so people are not facing their backs and are able to enjoy the music.

Overall experience was just meh…not sure we’ll be back.

There was a party of 8 that got sat right after us in the same section. They were catered too pretty much the whole evening as we sat and never saw our server except for the food runners. On top of the bad service, as a couple we were charged a 20% gratuity for a two. Never again to dine at this place.

I understand it’s the holidays so it was quite busy. First time eating here. Kitchen seemed slammed like most restaurants these days. Appreciated the Free wine as we waited but it was short lived. After not receiving any food for over and hour after we arrived we watched as the table next to us got apps first even though we were seated way before them and ordered way before them. That was quite frustrating after waiting all evening to eat. My sister ordered some tea that never arrived as well. Also thought all the pasta was handmade, my fettuccine however didn’t seem that way. After being there for over 2 hours we had to leave almost without desserts but they quickly packed it for us as we were heading for the door to catch a ride.

It was the third time eating at a restaurant for a holiday. The food was good, but expensive. Certainly, had better meals at that cost. We also sat next to a large party and could barely hear ourselves and the wait staff.

We had a party of 12. We were a lot! They accommodated every single one of our wishes, the food was FANTASTIC (I recommend the lamb chops!) But, there were tons of couples and it looked like a great place for an intimate dinner as well. It’s set up in an interesting way. You can be in a room with a jazz band, or in a quiet area away…lots of options. Definitely recommend!!

Zingari was a treat for Christmas Day lunch. The service was OUTSTANDING! The holiday menu was expansive and the apertivo of fig crostini delightful. The main courses were medium, Ossobuco and Bolognese were warm and not flavorful after a few bites. Cocktail’s and wine list nice. I would go back and order differently next time.

We booked at Zingari for Christmas Eve special dinner expecting a festive ambiance. We were however disappointed that there was no Christmas decorations on the table nor in the room. Food was good and we had plenty of choice. Pasta was however undercooked (as Italian we know the difference between al dente and undercooked). The veal was also raw and cold inside. Service was very good. Overall a good restaurant but lacking a festive touch which is a pity for a Christmas Eve’s special dinner.
