Great food with really helpfully friendly staff. The restaurant was full when we arrived but the servers didn’t lose interest in us and made us feel really welcome until a table was ready

I did a tour of the restaurants in Wellington, and this was my favorite. New Zealand/Italian fare, really great but small selection of food and drink. Totally easy to get a gluten free dinner. I got the citrus salad and the lamb, and I almost cried when I tried the lamb. It was the most tender and flavorful lamb I’ve ever had. I almost licked the plate dry of the rich and unctuous sauce. The ambiance was great, for a romantic dinner, single diner, or friends alike. Open kitchen with smiling chefs was a bonus. My neighbors got the meatballs and the smell was amazing. Hoping to go back again and again to try everything!

We had a delicious bruschetta and tiramisu for a great price. The service and atmosphere was superb and we will definitely go back soon.

We loved our visit to Ombra. We live in London and with quite a few options for Venetian tapas, we wondered how it would shape up. Well, we loved it. The parpadelle was cooked perfectly, every dish was tasty, well presented and served with a smile. Prices were fine and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Only criticism is the roasted potatoes were just potatoes wedges and not crispy. I was expecting crispy roast potatoes. Stick them in the oven on a higher heat for a bit longer and you’re there!

Don’t worry about booking if you don’t mind sitting at the bar like we did. They save 50% of tables/ bar space for walk ins.
