Traditional higher-end Italian restaurant. The service was fine and the waiter did a good job of taking our command and delivering it but could have been friendlier. We enjoyed outside seating which was a much quieter affair than indoors. Food was good but had some uneven spots. The carpaccio was very good and topped with nicely dressed arugula and parmesan...

We had a very bad experience here. The quality of the food was below average and it's not inexpensive. The wait staff was not friendly and had a "don't care" attitude. There were no apologies for lack of or quality of the food. We later heard from many locals that it had been going down hill. We were sad to... More

By all accounts our evening should have been outstanding. Beautiful setting and interesting menu but our service was uneven - we had wonderful drinks to start but getting a menu seemed to be a problem. Once we finally got a menu, we were never told of any specials. I don't know if our young waitress was intimidated by the 6... More

Well here we are in a beach town in Delaware and Ristorante Zebra offers as fine a dining experience as one could desire. I have been dining here for years and find the cuisine, service, and ambiance excellent.

Our server at Ristorante Zebra was very nice. She was as attentive as she could be, given what seemed to be a staff shortage. She was assisted by one of the other two waiters. We ordered the lump crab meat appetizer. It was excellent. Fresh, Huge chunks of crab meat. Delicate. Amazing. For whatever reason, we were both in the... More

This was out first time at this restaurant. The building is beautiful inside and out. The food was very good. Brandon our server, was very friendly and accommodating. Prices are in the upper range, so be prepared.

The family owns a home in Rehobath so we have been coming here for 20+ years. This is teady best fine dining Italian heavy restaurant in town. The rooms are small and can be lousy. The deck is romantic. The small bar area modern. The food is spectacular. Italian essentials are always perfect. The veal chop is best anywhere. The... More

Ristorante Zebra surpassed everyone's expectations when my group of four friends dined there. The feel was upscale, yet very comfortable. It was obvious that this restaurant attends to the savory, presentation, and overall dining experience. I especially recommend the caprese salad and have posted a picture of it. The wine list is extensive and well thought. Loved it and will... More

Everything was perfect! Portions are large so if you're not a big eater order 1/2 size portion. Great Italian food!

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.

Thank Ken P
