Our hotel concierge suggested this location, the restaurant was within walking distance of the hotel (Canterbury). The overall ambiance is nice and the live jazz music was great. The food is okay however not what I expected for an Italian place. However if you really enjoy the healthy and organic take on dishes this may be your place.

The food at Zingari is always great but the service is even better: Stefano is the perfect server! He makes wonderful recommendations and pairs the food selection with the right wine. The warm bread pudding was the crowning of my meal, simply fantastic!

I have never left a review on OpenTable but this place was so delicious that I would like share with you. I ordered the Filleto Di Vittelo which is grilled veal steak wrapped in bacon with a fantastic white wine cream. If you visit try that dish!

Our business dinner was outstanding for several reasons at Zingari. First, the service and staff was warm and welcoming and quite attentively. We were catching up and each time our waiter came by unobtrusively, he asked if we were ready to order. He never made us feel rushed to order. Our food came fast and was outstanding. The special was a crab ravioli. The pasta was homemade and creamy and full of flavore. In addition, the salads and sides were delicious and the dessert, chocolate chip bread pudding was big and yummy. One of the best parts of the night was the jazz band who played and provided a great ambiance for the dining experience. Lastly, as we left, the host and all the staff we saw thanked us and even shook our hands as we left making us feel very welcome to return. I highly recommend it and hope to return again soon!

Everything was great. The only suggestion was they turn down the recorded music and pipe over the live music when the live Jazz is playing.

My daughter and I had a wonderful dinner there Friday night. The pasta was handmade and incredible. We also enjoyed the beet and burrrata salad. The service was wonderful. The staff was attentive and everything came in a timely manner. There’s a grand piano in the dining room and it sounds lovely. But we had a 6:15 reservation and the entertainment didn’t really start until we were leaving so I’m sad we missed that. I would definitely try Tagan and go back a little later so we can have a full experience.

Was looking for a good italian dinner experience and we were all happy with the decision. Excellent wine list. I had the pet to pollo, others had pasta, all were excellent. Started with the burratta(sp?) That was delicious too.

We had a lovely and very quite brunch, mainly due to a middle of the day meal and we had
the place to ourselves. (Probably because of the previous night being the Chinese New Year parade. The Eggs Benedict was perfect. It had an Italian twist with thin sliced prosciuto and San Francisco sourdough bread. The Champagne and blackberrys was wonderful as well.
I would go back and also tell a friend.

We reserved a table for 8.30pm but when we arrived, the table was not ready and we had to wait 15min for a table to be ready. The service was good but the food was mediocre. We choose this place because it had a jazz bar but it was disappointing that it was only for small section of the restaurant and we were taken to the back where we could barely hear the music

Zingari is a landmark and treasure of the City! The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is great traditional Italian with a nice wine selection as would be expected. Certainly not a restaurant for a light meal, so be ready to eat. Okay value compared to similar restaurants in the area.

We went her for my birthday celebration. In the reservation, it seemed that we would have a ‘special’, complimentary coctail. We neither received the coctail, nor a birthday cake or any sort of serving. I specifically indicated in the reservation, since it asked the reason for the visit.
Food was delicious. Wine list is exemplary. Our server (Alessandro?) was helpful and nice. However the way we were greeted and treated by the welcoming desk was not appropriate for a such restaurant.

This is our go to restaurant when going to the theater. The food and service is always excellent and the atmosphere is quiet (easy to talk) and easy. We are from New York and spend considerable time in the Bay Area. Every time we are here we make sure we go to Zingari at least twice. Never been disappointed. Always outstanding.

Lovely lunch for out of town friends. Service and ambience were excellent, as usual. Two of us had the daily special, crab ravioli, and thought the pastry was heavy - not the lovely, light one finds in many Italian restaurants - or anywhere in Italy! But, overall, we love this restaurant for its centrality, service, and food.
Thank you.

Appetizer was the best part of the meal. The main course was bland; not much flavor or nuance to the wild boar dish. My wife felt her food was plain as well. This would be okay if it weren’t for the high price of the meals PLUS the already included 20% gratuity. I’d find another restaurant if you’re looking for good Italian food.

We were seated at a table for four even though we were two which was a little awkward. We were very far from the jazz so we couldn’t hear it. The set menu was ok, but kinda pricey for what it was and nothing blew my mind food-wise.

Food was really good, so was happy about that. Had veal and burrata which were definitely quality eats. Went for the Valentines Day dinner - “prix fixe but essential an app, an entree, and a dessert with what looked like the full menu. Didn’t feel special - just forcing a price point. Service was decent, but not overly impressive, and 20% gratuity added for us and we were only 2 people. Don’t be fooled by it having Live Jazz. Most of the restaurant is separate and you don’t get to experience it. Plus very small bar.

Restaurant advertises live jazz but we were seated in an area where we could not see or hear the jazz. Front desk service poor. Food was mixed. Some courses great, others poor.
