The fire crackles and flares inside La Zingara Trattoria's wood-burning oven, adding a hint of smokey flavor to the hand-made lasagna in its depths. Beside the layered pasta, a spitted rack of lamb sizzles, its juices mingling with Mediterranean spices. A chef reaches a giant metal spatula into the furnace, deftly sliding beneath the crust of a traditional Italian pizza like a hand slipping into a glove.
Such is a typical evening within La Zingara Trattoria's 100-person dining room. The eatery combines upscale, traditionally crafted Italian food with a casual, friendly ambiance. Live music and regular events entertain diners as they tuck into dishes or work their way through the extensive wine list, glass by glass. Of course, the owners know that some evenings call for a quiet, private meal, which is why they furnish several private spaces for parties or company meetings.
