You can find all of your favorites in each course. Some special extras too: octopus carpaccio was a surprise and quite tasty with their special lemony dressing on the accompanying garden salad. The Ossobucco was boar but far from that in flavor - much less...More

My mom loves live music, good food, and a fun location. I thought Zingari near Union Square would be perfect for Christmas Eve. It was a subpar experience. It was made worse by the fact that it was $85 pre fix only, with 20% gratuity...More

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

We never ate breakfast at the hotel. There are tons of breakfast options within 2 blocks of the Donatello. But our favorite among all the ones within a 3-block radius was Café Mason.

Live music and revered menu make Zingari a feast for the senses. Just one block off Union Square, the polished marble floors of a Florentine villa, the rustic food of Tuscany, and the sound and swagger of a jazz club converge seamlessly at Zingari Ristorante.
