Great Pizza

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

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

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
