Good everyday Italian!!

Wouldn't really recommend this place if you are after fine dining, even though the prices certainly are quite 'fine' if you know what I mean. But if just want some good everyday Italian food, then this is the place.

Great pizza and service, well worth a visit. Our waiter Josh was excellent. Prices a little on the high side, also corkage around $9 from memory.

We walked in at 8:30, based on what the site said, that they would be open until 10. Nope, they turned us away. Ridiculous.

Unexpectedly large premises and very busy which usually denotes good food. Young waiters were enthusiastic and efficient. Pasta was tasty and plentiful and the regular pizza was excellent and had a lovely crisp base. Great for a pre theatre meal.

It must have been a busy day at Zucchini Bros because they ran out of pizza the night we visited - but we were there for the Pasta. Dunedin is a Uni town, so the portions were large. Of 3 types tried, one was great, one OK and one not so good. Best part of the meal was desert -... More

We arrived at the restaurant as they were closing. We were tired and hungry and asked if we might simply place an order for takeout. The chef came out and told us the kitchen was closed but we could have pizza. It came out inno time and as delicious! They were very gracious to keep the restaurant open and made... More

We had such a good experience at the Zucchini Brothers! We arrived quite late on a miserable rainy day, enquiring about takeaway options and were informed the restaurant was closing and there wasn't much food available. As we left to continue our unsuccessful search for food elsewhere, one of the staff came running out after us offering to make any... More

Craving pasta and we got it. Fresh pasta and homemade sauces. Very nice atmosphere located next to our hotel.

Dined in this restaurant with a friend. We were greeted and seated immediately by a pleasant waiter. Our drinks and food took a while to arrive, but I suspect this was because the place was buzzing that night. We shared a pizza, which like other Italian restaurants in NZ, comprises of a thin, THIN crust- I would have preferred thicker... More

I had a satisfactory visit to this restaurant, which mainly serves pizza and pasta. However I had heard such good things about this restaurant so I had high expectations. I definitely think it was pricey for what I had. I had a carbonara which was plain. I would return, but I would try something else and hope it was worth... More
