My husband and I dined here recently while visiting Wellington. We had a grab1 voucher which included a tapa platter and wood fired pizza. The tapa platter was very nice but not really what we were expecting, the pictures showed very different foods, we mainly got things to spread on bread. The pizza we designed ourselves and was delicious, great... More

There was nothing I could fault about the meal I had at Zibibbo recently. There was a large group of us and we started with drinks in the lounge area. The atmosphere is very relaxing and there is so much to choose from in regards to drinks. You are able to order any cocktail you like - even if it... More

For me a big YES. A quiet early Tuesday night just after Wellington on a Plate. While the service was a little missing at times due to the waitress being downstairs at the beginning and end of our meal it was a great meal. The Tapa's plate was a real highlight - a great variety of tasty dishes, they complimented... More

had a group dinner here last week and found the experience very average. Food was forgettable and service was overly familiar. Wgtn has much better places, at a better price to offer.

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
