Great dining 1 block off the main drag

Walk 1 block off Rehoboth Ave and the tone changes to homey, quiet, residential. Zebra fits right into the street with a homey, appealing porch with outdoor dining, Inside it is lovely with African scenes painted on the walls, and one wall reflecting tropical wildlife. The tables each have red... read more

Went off season so very quiet. The pumpkin soup with crab pinwheel was excellent. Asparagus with fontana and prosciutto was very good. Risotto piscatore was fresh and flavorful. Veal picatta excellent. Service was very good. Will return.

Zebra is our favorite place to eat in Rehoboth! We visit during the off season three times a year and are lucky to catch it open at least once! Wish it stayed open all year round! Wonderful food, ambiance is great and the service is impeccable! Please stay open Zebra!!!!

This restaurant is a bit pricey, but it is the beach. The seafood selection is mainly limited to shellfish, with a single selection of halibut on the night we were there. The shellfish we ordered was overcooked. The veal dish was better. The wine list was not very Italian nor up to the pretensions of the restaurant. And the service... More

Gracious service and generous seating in this converted house, including open-air dining on the porch. We sat outdoors, and enjoyed gazpacho with crab guacamole (delicious), half plates of pasta (home-made, and light), and veal entrees. Everything was terrific. Unfortunately, mosquitos descended on us after the first 15 minutes (maybe as the sun set?). Our server brought a citronella candle but... More

We ate there with friends recently. The food was only OK, the service was only OK, the price was high. The pasta was definitely not al dente, and we would not go there again.

Even with reservations we had to wait for our table. Our waiter forgot about us for a while and left us with the menus for too long. Our food was great, although there was very little difference between the half and full size portions even though it was double the price. Overall good quality food but on the expensive side...

We have been going to RBD for years and just discovered Zebra by accident this year. It's in its 23rd year!! The outside dining is awesome and because it's on a side street it is quiet and calm. Service was 5 star and the Italian food was great. We all enjoyed each item we ordered. And it was kid friendly... More

As fine an Italian cuisine as one is apt to find in any cosmopolitan city. The menu is large and varied, with a very good wine list. Our dinner was excellent. We enjoyed a delightful dining experience.
