Zingari is a Ristorante with rustic Italian soul food around house-made pastas and roasted or grilled meats and fish. With a classic aperitivo bar and live jazz everyday, Zingari is a warm, lively place to sip your Negroni and dine on Pappardelle and Ossobuco. Our Ristorante is a place for you to restore and feel at home with your guests. With three distinct, contemporary Italianate dining parlors, Zingari is truly a unique event space for the most discerning guests and one of the best restaurants for private dining in San Francisco. Zingari means gypsies in Italian, and refers to the people, or nomads, who live and travel through Europe and other parts of the world. They are renowned for their rich culture and dazzling aesthetic; their songs, poetry, and dance convey mystery and romance. The Zingari people remind us to travel light and carry a smile—to be open to discovery and new delights. Cheers, a toast to Italy, and welcome to Zingari Ristorante.
