Yum!

The food was good, but the service varied. Sometimes excellent, other times they seemed unimpressed to have my baby boy at the restaurant (and its not a fancy, adults only kind of place). We ate there several times and the seafood was very good.

I have been going to Zodiaco restaurant for almost 15 years. I can not say, they do the best steak, pasta, pizza or sea food. But everything there is over average and the service is perfect, when you go there with large group, somebody will be asking for pizza, the other for sea food and in this restaurant you can... More

We visited Rimini in the off season and there very few restaurants open. Zodiaco, on the street facing the beach, was open and quite full. We both ordered fish, salad, and desert. We were not disappointed - a few too many bones were still in the fish, but it was very good. Local wine was also very good. We shared... More

Amazingly busy, the food must be good, I thought. How wrong could you get, I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, but this restaurant is truly shocking. The service was hurried and slack, We didn't get what we ordered. The food was poorly presented and no thought given to presentation. Nothing was fresh, everything was frozen and tasteless. Without a shadow... More

We ate here several times. My favorite dishes were the sea bream ravioli with saffron, the seafood soup, and the frittura di pesce. The only misstep was the oysters, which I thought smelled bad and were sandy, but I'm not exactly an expert.

Every thing was perfect, the food just tasted fantastic, the sweets too. The waiter was really friendly. The only negative thing was that the owner didn't look friendly, or at leadt it didn't seems so.

We had just arrived in Rimini and the owner of our hotel suggested this place as it was only 5 mins away. It was easy to find on the main beach road and it looked busy as we arrived at 2015 - which was encouraging! It's quite large inside with lots of tables quite closely packed together. The menus were... More

It all fell part with the non-service provided by the single worst waiter I have ever encountered. we were served tumblers to drink wine from, our mains arrived 2 mins after the starter,was slammed down on the table & when I mentioned...

We enjoyed the Zodiaco Restaurant. The sea bass was really tender and good. Had a great caprese salad as an appetizer. Wine was average.
