Enjoyable

We've been here a couple of times. Both times we've ordered entrees tapas, risotto. Yum. We've tried the fish, chicken, beef, pork belly, pizza dishes there. All were tasty but not memorable meaning we liked them but nothing really sticks out as outstanding. The service was friendly, helpful and... read more

We've been here a couple of times. Both times we've ordered entrees tapas, risotto. Yum. We've tried the fish, chicken, beef, pork belly, pizza dishes there. All were tasty but not memorable meaning we liked them but nothing really sticks out as outstanding. The service was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The interior was cozy. I'd probably return again one day.

We ate here with our clients when in Wellington and the service and food were fantastic. The menu sounded fantastic from start to finish and the hardest thing to do was to choose. We tried the tapas starter and this was great - highly recommended.

As a coeliac who needs to eat gluten free, I look for restaurants that make it easy for me. Zibibbo does just that, by marking on the menu items that either are GF or can be made GF with modification. The meal we had here was great, service was good and prices were reasonable. Recommended.

Couldn't fault the food. My medium steak was perfectly cooked and the sauce and accompaniments were all very tasty. I asked for a side of spinach (something I'd enjoyed in the past at Zibibbo) and they were happy to make it for me even though it wasn't on the menu. Dessert of pecan pie and chocolate mousse were perfect.

I had dinner here recently ,first time for a considerable time. There was an excellent selection of menu choices. Food was fresh , well prepared and presented. Simple delicious food with good reasonably priced wine selection. Recommend, if you like Floraditas you will like Zibibbo

We went and had a pizza and tapas here, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. The food was very good. The prices are expensive. but it is worth a try on a special occasion.

We went here a couple of weeks ago for a night out just before Christmas. It was a pretty busy night, which usually indicates good food but potentially slow service. It was absolutely NOT that, we had incredible waiters who could advise on choices for food and wine. We ordered the tasting platter to start which is fantastic and quite... More
