Price can stack up quick at a tapas place but what you get here 's tasty and better than others around. Nice looking place and staff always been friendly.

In a land that reflects more of English restaurants and bars, New Zealand does not proud itself in a refined food culture that has characterised Italy for centuries. The availability of a high-quality Venetian Bacaro in Wellington is therefore a genuine relief for any food enthusiast.

Ombra breathes Italy in it's interior, it's plates and it's service. The interior is modern, but very tasteful -with small reminiscences of Europe and Italy in particular. The variety and quality of the food is excellent, made and served to share. The service is impeccable, but remains homely. The price is well balanced, befitting it's great food.

We looked for breakfast, but got lunch. And what a great treat Ombra was. Being welcomed by the owner/head waiter (most likely) with the notion that coffee was probably a necessary starter, we went for a full lunch - as accustomed, with the necessary red wine. All the plates were of consistent, excellent quality. It was easy to recognize that the chef uses the best quality beef and lamb for the dishes we chose. Overall, Ombra is one of the best Italian restaurants I have visited - even within Italy it would stand out.

A rare thing in hospitality in general, the waiter was supporting us with choices - actually thinking alike. In proper European custom, he suggested a finishing coffee - just as we were thinking ourselves. Retiring almost two hours after entering and after a proper espresso, we left the venue with a smile.

Enjoyed our dinner, favourite dishes were the aracinni starter, fennel risotto and tiramasu dessert! Very attentive staff, all made us feel very welcome abs was a nice ambience, very cosy and inviting on a cold Wellington night. Just a shame they don't take bookings as had nearly an hour wait, but great they found us seats at the bar very quickly and can order food while you wait.
