We recently dined with friends at this nicest of Bethel spots. The menu is small but well prepared and definitely not just pastas. One of us had duck breast which was lovely. A variety of salads and wine by the glass offered a nice selection. Table cloths and napery add a nice touch to the ambiance. They do not take... More

Had Sunday brunch with a group of 20. Service was excellent and the food and drinks were top notch. The steak and eggs was unreal.

We have pretty high standards when it comes to food & dining out & La Zingara exceeded all expectations. The atmosphere was warm, inviting & romantic without being too pretentious. Our server was so attentive & personable. She was extremely knowledgeable of the menu & the food came out in a timely manner without feeling rushed. This was the first... More

LaZingara has delicious Italian food that goes far beyond the usual, as well as a fantastic, creative seasonal drinks menu that always has something new and fun to try. They're also knowledgable about allergies and are very accommodating.

I went here for brunch with girlfriends on Sunday April 10th. The food was yummy - especially the French toast. Although more vegetarian options would have been appreciated and a vegan option would have been divine! But what kept it from being really great was the fact that my friends and I couldn't hear a thing we were saying to... More

Having partaken of this establishment over 50 times, I must say that it is one of the jewels of Fairfield county. The cuisine, from mallard duck to lobster to poutine, is savory and delightful on a myriad of levels. The "winter salad" is crisp and fresh and the Caesar salad is light and tangy with anchovies that are delectable. Salads... More

We had dinner here with close friends. I had lunch here once, but my wife had never been here. We were very pleased with our visit. They have an extensive wine list and interesting craft beer selection. I had the salmon, two had the lasagna special and the final person the swordfish special. We were all happy with our meals,...

Good Restaurant, Both meal and service were very good. Otherwise extremely loud and boisterous. If your preference is for a place where you would like a meal where people can have a conversation without literally yelling at each other across the table, this is not the place to go to. Too bad the owners have no clue when it comes... More
