Have been there on Friday nights and it seems to me very average with mains in the $30's and Pizza for $24. Waitress was rather dozy first forgetting the beer then completely forgetting the chilly oil. I just dont think their mains are worth $30's as rather bland. Although the Pizza was fairly good.Good for meeting for a drink. Not... More

Recently returned back to Zibbibo for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Our waiter was faultless, very attentive. Food was delicious and full of flavour. It is great to know you are going out for great food and service.

This was our first visit to Zibibbo. To be honest, I’d never heard of the place before, but good reviews and the menu tempted us to try it. And we weren’t disappointed. Everything was top notch. Our waiter was friendly in a genuine way and offered some advice during our decision process. We ordered a bottle of the Spanish Rioja... More

My husband and I had the best night last night. The food was absolutely delicious - the chef is amazing. If you've been here for dinner you already know how wonderful it is. If you haven't try it out we loved it.

Went for diner for my sons birthday as this place had been recommended. All if the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our waiter Gareth would have been one of the best I have encountered anywhere in the World. Professional, knowledgable and very friendly. Nothing was a problem. The food was sensational. We all enjoyed our evening very much. Thanks... More

I booked a table for 6 here for a pre theatre dinner after having always had great experiences here in previous vistis (though last one was 18 months ago), despite hearing others recent feedback that the service had gone downhill. The food was amazing, really couldnt fault it and their Prix Fixe menu ($45 for three courses) is very good... More

I would not advise someone to go to this restaurant. I am surprised is considered one of the best restaurant is Wellington. The first time I went there three waiter/waitress pop up to take our order. The result was that they mixed up the order and I received the starter and the venison at the same time! Plus we did... More

Pizza was wood fried, very lovely as well. Staff were friendly and attentive. Nice ambience. Nice and warm next to fire place, perfect way to spend your... More
