Zingarella – “The New Gypsy Girl in Town” – has become central Connecticut’s favorite destination for Italian comfort food and New York-style pizza.
We’re open all day Tuesday through Sunday starting at 11:30 a.m. Our Lunch Menu offers sandwiches and more than 30 delightful soups, appetizers, crisp salads and entrées. Our Pizza Menu, served all day, offers more than 30 toppings on any cheese pizza – plus more than 30 specialty pizza recipes. And our Dinner Menu, beginning at 4 p.m., features the creations of our talented team of chefs led by the gifted Angelo DiDomenico. Inspired by Italian tradition, we feature dinner all day on Sunday!
It’s a charmed corner we occupy! Easy to find us in Southington – in the Victorian-era Village of Plantsville – just 30 seconds off I-84, Exit 30. With the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail just outside our door, Zingarella beckons you to jump “on the tracks!” Before or after a delicious meal, take time for a stroll, a brisk walk, or a fun bike ride!
Our Chef, Angelo DiDomenico, is exceptional for his focus on simplicity – fresh ingredients prepared simply, with perfect technique!
Angelo offers his memorable signature dishes: Handmade Paglia e Fieno Fettuccine tossed with crispy pancetta and prosciutto; Pillow-soft, Potato Gnocchi or Award-winning, tender Veal Meatballs served with a dollop of creamy ricotta.
Our second floor banquet room is suitable for 16 to 40 guests. The room boasts a 20-foot ceiling with giant sculptural chandeliers and 8-foot tall windows overlooking the village. It’s equipped with the latest stereo sound, computer links, and a 9-foot wide, high-def TV! Business groups love our location because it’s accessible, private and quiet – for getting business done during the day. We host many wedding rehearsals, retirement parties, showers, stags, sporting events, holiday gatherings, and children’s parties with make-your-own mini pizzas or ice cream sundaes! Our convenient location makes every event at Zingarella turn-key easy!
In our main dining room, we also sport a 9-foot retractable projection TV. We welcome inquiries about private events in our banquet room or our main indoor and outdoor dining areas.
It’s common to have a mid-afternoon craving for Zingarella’s house-baked desserts – led by Angelo’s famous light, but not-too-sweet Cheesecake (you’d swear there was ricotta in it!) Light and creamy treats like Tiramisu, Crème Brûlée, Chocolate Zuccotto Sponge Cake, and fresh-filled Cannoli are frequent features of the dessert menu, which changes daily. Zingarella is a perfect spot to grab a friend to enjoy a fresh-brewed espresso or cappuccino over dessert!
In summer 2015, Zingarella opened a full-service, walk-up ice cream café. The full ice cream menu is available inside or out to enjoy milkshakes, hot fudge sundaes, ice cream cones and other treats with a meal – or snacking in-between!
