Exceptional service,great food and drink
It was our last night in San Francisco and we wanted to celebrate with dinner and jazz.
Zingari was perfect.
We had the most amazing sea bass! Hope to go again before leaving San Francisco.
After reading previous posts, decided on Zingari to celebrate our anniversary. Great atmosphere and staff were outstanding. The jazz band playing that night was awesome, could listen to them all night. Tried two desserts, both very good, Tiramisu and sorbet selections. The apps and the dinner were just ok, calamari not crispy and linguini and clams were nothing special considering the price point. Both the bartender and our server, Nadia were great and we would definitely return to try different entrees.
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!
This was my 5th time at this restaurant, it's convenient for when I stay near Union Square (often), I can always get in and I'm never disappointed in the food or service.
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!
Visited this restaurant on our last evening in the city and wished we had found it sooner. Wonderful food, wonderful staff, wonderful ambiance. In all, a truly wonderful evening. A real gem of a place!
Food was delicious. Very loud as it was difficult to talk in the restaurant but small distraction compared to quality of food. Recommend.
The restaurant is very nice and "classic" - dont expect to be surprised. Food is of high quality.
Wow!! Amazing service! We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and the staff treated him like VIP! Stephano was very attentive and gave us excellent service. We will both be coming back for the service and delicious food. :)
Food & dessert were awful
This was a delightful evening. It is an elegant setting, wonderful food, good drinks, fine service great jazz musicians but......it was empty. We were the only people for Easter dinner, put a bit of a damper on the evening.
The restaurant food was terrible. I will not recommend at all.
The pasta was frozen and uncooked. it was cooked in a terrbile manner.
We were a group of 4 and all dishes were delicious. The list of wine is very good and pairs really well.
The food was delicious and flavorful. The night my family went there was great live jazz music. It was a cozy and up to date atmosphere.
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.
Great. Waiter exceptional.
Food was amazing! I don't think you can pick a wrong dish.
Service was absolutely amazing. We were truly impressed by the attentiveness of the entire staff.
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.
Wonderful service and friendly staff. Specials unique and elegant. Live jazz after dinner was a treat for the family.
We found Zingari everything we expected. Stephano, was our waiter and was very engaging. He was very informative and helpful navigating through the wonderful menu of Zingari. I am a Polenta fan and found there appetizers to be extraordinary. Everything was wonderful.
Thank you for the experience.
There pasta is unbelievable! Attentive service, will eat here again.
It was very tasty and we appreciated the complimentary birthday dessert
Great jazz. Good food. Very pricey wine. Charge for bread.
Great little place with excellent service and food. The music was really good and a nice surprise.
Terrific experience, wonderful and authentic Italian dining served professionally and elegantly. We enjoyed a quiet business conversation in a bright, clean and contemporary dining room. The menu offered a wide variety of authentic dishes, complemented by a wonderful wine list of new and old world varietals. We will return!
The cuisine was outstanding as always but we did have to wait for our plates to be cleared and offered more wine, dessert etc.
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 really enjoyed the food. Had two of the evening specials. Starter of octopus, tuna and salmon. Sliced so thin. Also had the crab pasta with shrimp. We share everything and they split the main for us. Excellent
Wonderful food. Great service. Very authentic Italian style dining.
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.
Great food, service and music. Everyone was very nice and friendly.
