Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Went here with 3 coworkers while in SF for a business trip and really, REALLY enjoyed. The restaurant wasn't busy or loud (our reservation was 6:15 on a Monday night) and our server was really helpful making suggestions around what we should order -- tapas can be tough! She actually let us know we had ordered TOO MUCH (when does that ever happen?) and we ended up with the perfect amount. The surf & turf paella was delicious, the potatoes were AMAZING, and I also really liked the Brussels sprouts & grilled octopus. I definitely recommend! More

Italian | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

We live nearby but were staying overnight in SF for a meeting and decided to look for a new spot for dinner. Settled on Zingari's partially because of the live music but we got immersed in the meal and forgot about the jazz until we were headed out the door and heard the music! It was in a different part of the restaurant so request seating in that area if you prefer. We actually enjoyed being in a quiet, peaceful room. Very interesting menu, encourages us to come back. We had carpaccio and cauliflower appetizers--both excellent. Wild boar osso buco was also delicious. Roasted scallops and beets were well prepared but the combo just didn't work well for us. The wine list had a good mix of Italian and Californian wines, reasonable choices by the glass and a few half bottles (always appreciated). Service was friendly but professional. Definitely worth another visit. More

plenty of gluten free options. Nicely spiced sauce on a steak, and not over salted . I had a vegetable medley that could have used some hot sauce ('tho I should have asked for it). It had some fried tofu that was really delicious. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
