“A nice end to the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

We found Zibibbo on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed! The restaurant was an easy drive from our hotel, (the Hampton Inn). This is a great choice if you're looking for a reasonably priced fine dining experience. The atmosphere and food were all that we were told to expect. Delicious!

“Yummy Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

We are always looking for good Italian food and this place did not disappoint. The fresh salad is a must, though it does not come with dinner. Having everything alacart begins to add up. I thought it was a bit on the expensive side. We sat outside which was ok, but there is a lot of vehicle traffic there and smokers sat outside. I will go there again, my family loved it.

“Always looking forward to a great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

So close to home so whenever we need a break from our everyday cooking, we come to this restaurant, the owner Nino always come by to see us and talk, they were out of oysters but they gave us a gift certificate to use next time, talk about customer service...prime! We tried the 3 cheese platter and we were in heaven, I ordered the lamb shank, it was delish, all their food here are great anyways, the desserts were to die for as well. Highly recommended restaurant!

“Superb - a real gem in the suburbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Attended a dinner for a party of 12 including three children under 10. Fantastic! The proprietor, a native of Sicily, greeted us and got everything underway. He helped select wines and then the appetizers began. Each one was a hit, but especially the Arancini di Riso alla Zafferano (Sicilian fried rice croquettes with a beef ragu and cheese).

The entrees were great. I had Pappardelle Bolognese; my wife had theTrenette nero Frutti di mare (seafood with squid ink pasta in a tomato broth/sauce.) We were both thrilled.

Deserts were excellent. The table enjoyed the house specialty, mini-cannolis, and others including the chocolate cake.

Great service - water glasses never reached empty and all the dishes reached the table nearly simultaneously. Excellent servers, closely supervised by the owner.

You won't be disappointed.
