Wonderful dinner, lovely decor and music to dance to. We had fine service and were not rushed.
My husband and I were looking for a quiet dinner and excellent food. Definitely some of the best Italian we've ever had! Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable and wine he paired for us was excellent. Place didn't feel touristy; very intimate. We will definitely return.
Food is excellent! Love the Penne with Chicken, the ravioli, and the Risotto. Service is Old World impeccable. If you can get a reservation in the Jazz Lounge, have dinner there. Or go in for a cocktail or a late night coffee. They have great live music six nights a week, and not so loud that you can't have a conversation. Very classy
I've always loved this place! – I have been visiting my brother who lives in San Francsico for years, and we always plan to make reservations at Zingari. We both love to sit back and listen to live entertainment, especially jazz, and we have always enjoyed consistently wonderful music at this restaurant. Not only the music and ambiance, but the food is superb. The service has always been excellent, even when they are busy. Although, when I see that a restaurant is busy, I don't expect such good service and they have never let me down. Some people expect everything immediately, despite how many other customers are waiting to be served, but I like to just sit back and enjoy myself and appreciate their fine food, service and ambiance. If you haven't been to Zingari, you definitely should make reservations for a special evening... and plan to stay awhile!
Super!!! – My parents brought me here when I came to visit them because they know how much I love Italian food, or should I say fine Italian dining. This was perfect for what I was in the mood for and I can't tell you how much I loved this place. My parents love jazz and so I guess I got my love for jazz from them, and listing to live jazz was perfect for all of us. We could eat and enjoy ourselves without feeling like we had to talk about a lot of what was going on in our lives. This was the first time in a long time that I enjoyed spending time with my parents without feeling like I was on the spot, because we were too busy dining on fine Italian food and listening to some really great tunes.
Service was great – I went there to meet a colleague for a drink, ended up ordering a few apps, and staying for quite some time. Later, we ordered dinner. It was totally unexpected. I thought I would be there for 30 minutes, but that turned into a little over two hours. Nice place. I'll make reservations next time and plan on staying a while.
Great Time Food and Jazz – We have been enjoying Zingari for years, as it has always been on our "must dine" restaurant list in San Francisco. Whether you are living in the area and have never had the opportunity, or passing through, this is an excellent choice if you really want to relax, enjoy some wine, listen to some music, and dine on some of Italy's finest foods. That about sums up our experience, consistently a wonderful dining experience every time.
I am the kind of guy who likes hanging at the bar, having a few drinks, apps, and maybe stay for dinner. This place rocks! Having live music makes it even better. I've never had anything that I didn't like, and I can eat Italian food all week long. I've brought my wife here and met friends, and we've never been disappointed.
We love the food! – My wife and I loved this place. I couldn't decide what to order because every time one of the servers were delivering food to another table, I kept seeing some awesome food that I wanted to try. Don't go there once, plan on going there a few times and trying as much of their food as possible. My wife and I shared two entrees and we plan to do it again, and can't wait to try more.
This is the best Italian I've had in a long time! – Thanks, Zingari! I had a wonderful evening. My family and I really enjoyed dining in your restaurant, and it's just what I needed. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area.
