Only been once but it was a great start

Went here for the first time for lunch and it has a great vibe. Nice, traditional white table cloths, the most comfortable seats I've ever had in a restaurant and the food was great too. Will definitely come back for dinner and try the wine.

On Saturday we stopped in for lunch. There were two family parties in the dining room.The one closest to us was way too loud for such a small area. The food was fine. Service was so-so. Took way to long to get the credit card back - some kind of issue with machine. We will go back, but probably not... More

For Stafford Virginia, this restaurant is off the charts. No way this establishment is located in the country side of Virginia and not in Alexandria or Arlington. Incredible..in every way. The food, the service is outstanding and the only reason you can get seated is because the restaurant is in Stafford. If this was up north, you would have to... More

I was here with a friend for lunch. I had a coupon of some sort which made the price more acceptable. The waitress was nice and attentive. Food was good.

I have been to Zibibbo several times. One time it will be fantastic, the next just so-so. Service has never been an issue. Dinner has always been better than brunch.

We have eaten at Zibibbo several times, even reviewed it favorably. Not likely to visit again, however, based on last evening's experience. Over these months we have hoped the service would improve. It hasn't - it might be worse. We made a reservation (for 2). Upon arrival, people without reservations were seated ahead of us. We were told, brusquely, to... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and have always been pleased with the food and service, however, that has all changed. Our office was having a celebration this past week, and 3 weeks prior I personally went in to book a date with Nino. I asked if we could reserve the area to the right of the... More

Perhaps we got a fluke, but after reading all the reviews I had much higher hopes. We live just up the road and for some reason had never visited before. The old restaurant that used to be in this location had started off great but then took a downhill turn and went out of business. So, after reading many good... More
