Def worth checking out

Visited Zibibbo with my fiancé and two friends and enjoyed an amazing night working our way through the menu. A very sociable menu with lots of options for sharing in groups, twos, or own your own. Great wine choices too! Must try the dessert platter!

3rd time there in the last 6 years. A strong starter initially but each subsequent visit has reduced my favour. Last night was ok, just ok. Oh, how the mighty have fallen

Had a great wine matched pre-theatre 3 course dinner...as vet food and ambiance was great. They also catered for my wife who is wheat free by providing a dish not on the pre theatre menu. Thoroughly recommend.

I have dined at Zibibbo on many occasions as well as attending the first and then many of the cooking classes by presented by Adam Newell, the owner and Head Chef. His expertise is second to none and we can count ourselves extremely fortunate that he decided to return to NZ. His food is always full of the freshest and... More

This place is far more than just pizzas. Try the Tapas platter for two, so many excellent different tastes, and so artistically plated. Gnocchi that melts in your mouth, and then followed by the Dessert Tapas, oh yum, what a cook !

I dined here in a large group of around 65 people and I have never experienced a better dinner for a large group - the service was fast, accurate and smooth as bro! The food was so good I will more than likely travel to Wellington just to go there again. Thanks!

Food is good. A bit more toward the very good end of the spectrum. Service is excellent. There is also a funky Japanese style beer and whiskey bar in the cellar which is popular even on week nights. Good place to go for a craft beer if you are stuck in Wellington on a rainy Tuesday.

Zibibbo serves up generous portions of high quality food. We had shared mezze of starters and I had pork belly on tomato and chickpeas. It was cooked to perfection with a crispy crackling to die for. The ambience is fantastic too with the kitchen on open display; industrial chic interiors and warm, friendly service. It's expensive but worth every cent.

An absolute must when in Wellington is the Zibibbo restaraunt, the owners were extremely helpful and accomodating and nothing was a problem, the meals were smallish however a delight to eat and very yummy. You must try the chocolate mousse if this is your taste as i will be travelling back just for that, all in all, a very pleasant... More
