Happy Hour of the Week - Zingari at the Donatello

Easily one of the best foodie-friendly happy hour bargains in town, Zingari Ristorante at the Donatello is the perfect low-key choice to nibble and quench on the cheap. If you decide to take advantage of this great value, you might find you're the only guest/s at the bar. So if you like company, bring your own - perhaps bring several friends and create your own ambiance. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, the furnishings tasteful, and the appetizers - a mixed bag. Polenta con fungi and the Ravioli, two of the stellar dishes that are half off during happy hour, are hearty and robust. The fried calamari leaves much to be desired - it's chewy and dare I say griselly. Bottom line - choose your apps with care.

Well drinks and house wines are also 50% off, so they might be all the liquid courage you need to get more adventurous with the menu. After all nothing ventured, not enough pounds gained.

If you miss the bargain bites and beverages the first time around - 4-7pm, return for the second shift. Another happy hour installment takes place 9pm-closing.
