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

Always like to get back to Zucchini Bros whenever I am in Dunedin. Great choice in pizza and pasta and a good place to catch up with friends. Staff have always been friendly and food quality is always excellent.

craving pasta and guess what? Two doors down from our hotel is Zucchini Brothers. Great service. Loved the artichoke, penne pasta. Husband had the beef wine sauce rigatoni. Great wine. Good prices

A very popular restaurant that is let down by slow service, uncomfortable chairs and overcooked pasta. On the positive side the pizza is a 9/10 with the innovative option to have a combination of 2 pizzas per serving (e.g. A half pizza of one topping and the other half with another topping.) On arrival the restaurant, which is split over... More

Zucchini Brothers have been in business for many years but have recently moved to 286 Princess Street near the Park Regis Hotel. They were very busy when I visited but they quickly found a table for one in a good position. I chose the Chicken in cream sauce on pasta which was excellent with a glass of Pinot Gris. I... More

I love this restaurant, it's been a favourite of mine for years now. The food is always fantastic and we have only had good service. My order is usually the chicken and mushroom penne but I most recently branched out and tried the very delicious honey-baked pumpkin and chicken penne. My partner had the Mexican beef pizza (also good). Our... More

Had a great meal here twice, the pizza and pasta are yummy and the gluten free options are really good. The place has great style and ambience. The only downfall was at the end of the night when we asked if the staff would call us a taxi. What we got was a gruff, there's a taxi rank across the... More

Alright so sounds like this place has done very well since I left Dunedin and relocated. I always thought they needed a larger venue as they were often packed and they make such good food. My favourite pizzas which was what I always ordered was either the 3 Chilli pepper pizza and the 4 cheeses pizza. Later it got to... More

What a great find! Warm cozy surroundings with city charm! Excellent choice of true Italian selections changed daily to make a follow up visit worthwhile. Drop in & enjoy!

It's a pizza and pasta joint and while the pizzas are certainly a few steps above the generic chain offerings so are the prices. The restaurant it self is pretty bland and characterless and for our group (we had booked) extremely cramped. Overall it wouldn't be my first choice for pizza and pasta in Dunedin.
