We enjoyed Zingari's atmosphere for lunch but the food was mediocre. We ordered mimosas and had to ask for them to add champagne. My Margarita pizza had a very soggy crust although the tomatoes were fresh. It was a little disappointing and pricey.

The service was good but the food — YUCK! My seafood risotto was microwave reheated and inedible. Even the clams were reheated. How hard is it to steam fresh clams? Way overpriced for food quality. It’s s big no

We typically don't go to hotel restaurants, but we are glad we visited Zingari. service was very good and attentive, always on top of things. The owner is there watching over things to make sure everything is going smoothly and it was.

I strongly recommend this place it was a pleasant surprise and the Jazz music was a plus. It was not to loud and provided a pleasant background.

I had a great time with my girlfriend at zingari, the live jazz was an amazing touch. The food was delicious but when a restaurant is charging a 20% service charge on any table you would expect the service to be at least at that level. I was expecting excellence and was disappointed we felt rushed and under attended too. The food and the ambience is what made the night great.

Service was outstanding! Food was good. There was just something missing from each dish to complete the flavor. For the price I’m not sure I’d go back. But if someone else were buying I wouldn’t say no.

In my opinion, Zingari should position itself only as a moderate quality diner with some live jazz.

Then it would just right.

I would not recommend Zingari to my friends.

We went to Zingari for the frapatto wine. But the food and ambience was amazing. We have the scallops in a read wine reduction sauce and it was mouth watering.

Experience was good overall but food and wine was way over priced. We look up the bottle of wine we bought for $56 that is normally sold at retail for 9 bucks! I was extremely disappointed to see a 600% mark up on bottle like that, its borderline shameful.

Live music. Place was empty. Salads and dinner were good but pricey. Extra cost for bread and automatic 20% tip. Not an issue as service was good. Two areas to sit with music in another area

Just strangely empty with a strange layout

Soft drinks 1 app 1 salad. Spaghetti and Risotto was 140

Ok. Good but not a wow

We went for Father's day. I thought there was a band for brunch. Not only was there no band, there was no one else in the place! The service was good & the food was tasty & well prepared. A good place for food. Wish I knew about the music

This restaurant experience was absolutely wonderful. Every single staff member that we interacted with was attentive and extremely friendly. Our server seemed spread slightly thin with how busy the night was but he still was extremely personable. The food was very good. It wasn't THE best pasta I've ever had, but still extremely tasty. I'm sure for some the band may have made the night too noisy for their tastes but my girlfriend and I both felt like they did an amazing job playing the space appropriately. We could still talk at a fairly loud level and the band took a balanced number of breaks. Their presence absolutely enhanced or evening to a level beyond our expectations. As we left every single staff member thanked us for coming and even shook our hands. One bus boy was clearly off work and enjoying a post shift dinner and got up from his meal to shake our hands and ask us if we needed a recommendation for more things to do nearby. This place is a class act with great food. I'd love to go again, if only I didn't love across the country.

A very disappointing meal. The Zuppa de Pesce was nothing special. Only two small pieces of garlic toast included and seafood that did not taste fresh. The calamari was quite unexceptional. One wonders if it wasn't a frozen vendor product.

I would not recommend.

The layout of the area of the restaurant I was in was very similar to a diner. The service was average and the food below average. I had high expectations for this restaurant and was let down. I have the filet mignon risotto. I do not recommend if you are trying to impress a date or you have limited time in the city.
