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.
This place rocks!. 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.
I'll definitely be back. I love 5 star restaurants! I met some friends and had a few drinks and apps, but had another engagement so I couldn't stay for dinner. I'm definitely coming back for dinner after all the great things my associates had to say about this place. Now that I've been there for myself, I know them to be true! I'll be back Zingari!
Great food, wonderful service and Live Jazz. I took my wife to an early Valentines day dinner this past Saturday, The place was packed. At the time we had made our reservation we requested to be seated in the Piano Lounge where they feature Live Jazz, However when we got there, we were greeted nicely, but we had to wait for about 15 minutes to be seated in the Jazz room. We were told that due to the Chinese new year parade lots of people were late in coming for their reservations and thus causing this wait, They did offer us a complementary glass of wine for our wait.. Nice touch. Once we sat down the food and service was just superb. Raj our server was very knowledgeable and provided attentive and unobtrusive service. We had Lobster Ravioli and Crab cakes for appetizers and they were both prepared well and tasted wonderful. For Entrees my wife chose Scallops in Lemon Thyme sauce, and I tried their Rack of Lamb which was a special of the evening. I loved my lamb as it was perfectly cooked and my wife really enjoyed her scallops. We shared a Tiramisu for dessert and that was the best I have ever tasted. The only negative was that the place was too crowded and dining tables were little too close to one another. But given the way I was treated I will definitely go back.
My new favorite. This is my new favorite. When I come to San Francisco, I will be sure to visit this restaurant. I love Italian food and northern style is my favorite. I love jazz, and they had live jazz which put them at the top of my list, fast!
