Very nice gnocchi. Nice wine, but not a big selection by the glass. Coffee was adequate. Atmosphere was trendy but cosy. Olives were from a jar, though (not OK). Friendly service.

We came to Zucchini Brothers for dinner with a group of seven. We were excited to see their new Princes street location, it is great - a beautifully updated heritage building. The food was very good but the service was a little slow.

We visited Zucchini Bros restaurant after a day sightseeing in the Taieri Gorge and were looking forward to a good dining experience. Although the meals were good, the delay in service was a little more than we had expected. I don't know if they were exceedingly busy but better communication between staff and guests would have been appreciated. Once the... More

Really enjoyed my night here. Nice big table, excellent glass of NZ wine and a pizza that was pretty decent for one that wasn't wood fired. Definitely a great place to eat and chat.

It’s always disappointing when a restaurant is let down by unprofessional service but it was embarrassing for my local hosts, hoping to show me the best of Dunedin. Staff are young and friendly but clearly lack training from a careless management. The food is basic, using some good ingredients but as far from Italian as Dunedin is from Napoli; in... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our B&B hosts and it was very good; full of families, students and others. We were not that hungry but managed a pizza each (different but both perfect) with a nicely composed green salad with just the right amount of dressing. Too full for much more we shared a generous portion of vanilla ice... More

We ordered twomof the easiest plates: a large pizza with bacon, mushrooms and schrimp, and carbonara pasta. Pizza is worst than those frozen ones. And carbonara pasta seemed to have been cooked two days ago. The woed al dente is just the opposite. It is really difficult to get a carbonara plate absolutely tasteless. And by the way, it is...

We're two couples traveling within New Zealand. Tonight the request was for pasta and Zucchini Brothers delivered a lovely fresh pasta dish and most kindly offered to divide it in the kitchen for the other couple to share. They raved about it. We had a pizza which was okay---we felt like it was a premade crust to which they topped... More
