Giuseppe Zimbalo (1620–1710) was an Italian architect and sculptor.

Known as Lo Zingarello ("Tiny Gypsy"), he was one of the most prominent artists in the so-called Baroque of Lecce, his hometown in southern Italy. Here he designed part of the façade of the Basilica of Santa Croce and the Celestine palace, finished the Duomo (1651–1682; he designed in particular the tall bell tower) and sculpted the column of Sant'Oronzo (1666).

One of his sons, Francesco, was also an architect and sculptor.
