Zingari food has always been excellent. But the creative way of staying open during the pandemic is a real accomplishment. I’ve had two very well prepared and served meals here on the terrace while a guest at the hotel. I’d love things to be normal, but since they aren’t, you can’t do better than authentic Italian food and cocktails made with love and care.
Food was delicious, service was attentive, romantic atmosphere. Very nice!
Went for a surprise party for my fiancée and it was the best pasta we’d had since Italy. Not an exaggeration. The wine list is impeccable, the staff was beyond helpful, and the ambiance with the fun “club” music made it a treat. Felt like we really went “out” for the first time during quarantine. Couldn’t recommend enough, will be back soon!!
nice place. great view from the rooftop. well done during covid.
The staff at zingari was AMAZING. Went out of their way to be accommodating. The food was next level, bombbbb Italian. The rooftop was fair protected great views, heaters and even blankets if needed. Cannot recommend enough!
We has very nice weather, not much customer, therefore it was quiet. Quality time with friends. Great place, will definitely come again!
The restaurant has a nice rooftop. The food is not bad, but nothing to write home about. We were a big party and tried many things on the menu. The dessert unfortunately was not good at all. The waiter recommended the bread pudding, which was the worst bread pudding I have ever tried. The service and ambiance was nice.
everything was outstanding particularly the gnocchi; service great and a nice place on the top of the Donatello Hotel; highly reccommended
were originally supposed to eat in the "Rooftop" but weather was bad--they moved us to
the restaurant area on the 2nd floor. It was very enjoyable.
Superb service and outstanding food. A beautiful dining spot in downtown SF. Highly recommended.
I love this place, the servers are respectful and kind. The food is authentic and absolutely delicious. The owner Christian is an absolute joy to be around. I will definitely be back soon.
We went there for restaurant week with price fixed menu. We got there and found out almost everything on menu had a upcharge . My suggestion was just charge more for the fixed price dinner. Then we were told we both had to order the price fixed and one could not order off the regular menu. The salmon was good, the pasta cold. I would not go back.
Great service and homemade pasta. We'll certainly be back!
Delicious food, service makes a great impression.
The food was just DELICIOUS !!! The waiter(s) were so helpful and attentive .. can’t wait to go back!!!
Food was excellent. Rooftop dining is always fun. Would definitely go back
Food was very average. Not worth the price. Took a very long time to get our appetizers and meal even tho the restaurant wasn’t busy. Ambiance was nice but won’t be returning because of the average food.
Great food and good service. Would definitely go back.
We went for the SF restaurant week.
Service and ambiance was fantastic.
The Tonno was a big portion, and tasted great! + $6
The grandmother’s pasta short rib was also great. +$10
The bread pudding was hard and chewy.
The chocolate mousse was fabulous!
There were a lot of extra charges on the menu for the restaurant week.
We paid an average of $100 per person with wine (15-18), tax, sf health and 20% tip.
The $40 sf restaurant week for dinner is a fit deceiving.
Our server victor was fantastic! The food was delicious. We had the veal and pappardelle pasta dish and both we’re so tasty. It really has a lovely, upscale atmosphere. A little hard to see the full city view with the wall being on the higher side when sitting but still a fabulous view, perfect for a rooftop experience.
The rooftop was nice, great fresh air and great food. Not ideal to sit in the high chairs but the experience, the service and the food were great.
Excellent food, good size portions. The cocktails were pricey, though
A rare rooftop find in San Francisco! Great atmosphere and excellent service. The food and drinks were delicious.
We had a great experience at Zingari. Wait staff were all nice and our busser was very sweet. Started with ricotta crostini,burrata and polenta. All were delicious. My fave was the polenta. The short rib pasta was amazing. Great flavors. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The rooftop is fun views of the city buildings. There are heat lamps so we were warm though still dress appropriately if it’s cold out. Drinks were tasty too. It is pricey for pasta so plan on spending some but to us it was worth it. Would go back again! Also we were celebrating two birthdays and they brought tiramisu with candles which was a nice touch
Pleasant change, decent food, slightly over priced drinks
I was excited about enjoying a rooftop dinner at a highly rated Italian restaurant with my husband and daughter. What we experienced was quite the opposite.
We arrived right on time for our 8:30 reservation, very hungry! We were told to sit in the lounge, a waiting area of tables with used water glasses scattered about.
After waiting 20 minutes after our reservation time, watching other parties being called to their table, we decided to ask if we had been forgotten. Every person we asked we were pushed off to someone else, with no one taking responsibility. After getting more hungry by the minute, we asked the gentleman taking people to their tables. He reluctantly took us even though we were not even next on the list.
We were seated indoors next to the bar tender with the music way too loud. When I asked if we could sit outdoors like we had specifically requested, we were told, this is the best you are going to get.
My 20 year old daughter was looking through the wine menu and our server abruptly took it from her and asked if she was old enough to drink. She was only looking at it, not ordering a drink. It seemed for some reason he was in a hurry every time he spoke to us!
Long story short (or shorter) the calamari was awful, the gnocchi was delicious (one highlight) the carbonara was terrible and the salmon was good. The carbonara was so bad I couldn’t even eat it! They were actually kind enough to take that off our bill which was very kind.
Lastly, before leaving, I went to the restroom where there was no toilet paper and for an upscale restaurant, it was a disgusting disaster!
Unfortunately it was not the experience we were expecting and we will not be returning.
The food was so tasty! They are not ready to be open in a post-COVID world. The waiting area was too small and we waiting over 20 minutes to be taken to our table, even with a reservation. The tables didn't seem to be 6 feet apart and the narrow patio doesn't allow for distancing when servers are walking by to another table. The servers and staff were running around in a frenzy as if this was their first day open - all the processes must be new now. On the way down we were instructed to share a small elevator with another party, which seems like it should be optional. Everyone did have on masks and the servers were friendly. Overall, the food was delicious and they need to perfect their processes for this new normal.
Customer service should be improved. We have to remind them of items we order on more than one occasion because they forgot.
Great view of the city. Staff was very friendly but the drink service was slow and the wine was overpriced.
Had a reservation for 8:45, wasn’t seated until 10pm
Visited Zingari for my 31st birthday dinner with a girl friend and it did not disappoint!!! We were running late due to our Lyft’s kept getting assigned a new driver. I called the restaurant to explain and they were so easy to accommodate by pushing our reservation back 15 minutes. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door and taken to the elevators. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We were told outdoor seating was about a 30min wait and we decided to get drinks while waiting. The lemoncello drop was great! Once our table was ready we were taken to our table and had such a great experience with our server, I believe his name was Jamie. We ordered the gnocchi al Gorgonzola to start and shared the carbornara and spaghettini con polpette. The gnocchi and carbornara were AMAZING!! I am definitely going to return just for those dishes!! If you’re considering this restaurant, do it!!
The host waiting for you and bringing you up to the restaurant and sitting you down was really classy. Drinks could be better. Food was good.
Great spot, open during COVID. We would go back again.
We found the food to be quite good; the open air roof top ambience was nice on a warm evening ( a rare event in SF); the service was friendly but sow.
We had a delicious meal with excellent service. I highly recommend
It is an upgrade to have the restaurant available outside on the top floor of the Donatello Hotel. We are hoping that option will continue even as things return to normal.
It was our first time at Zingari Rooftop and the food was excellent. We had two appetizers, and three different pasta meals. The service was great and the pre-meal Old Fashion cocktails were just the correct level of strength. We will be back again soon.
Really expensive for no reason.
Food s not that good. The only thing I like was the spaghetti but even for as small of the portion is ridiculously over priced. The salmon risotto tasted like someone cooked regular rice and salmon was not fresh. The baked chicken was not good and the potatoes were over cooked. My bill came out to $180 dollars and the food was terrible overall. On top of that I had to wait over an hour for my food and when it got there they apologized and said they were having problems in their kitchen. Never again and if I had time I would stand in front of this place and discourage as many people as I could from spending there money there.
Great drinks and great service!
The food was amazing, the service was excellent and fun, well organized.
