Description: Since opening its doors in August of 2012, Zibiru has garnered a loyal following with its regional Italian cuisine made from fresh ingredients. The restaurant has something for everyone, from food enthusiasts to wine lovers: During the day a gastronomic deli, offering sandwiches with premium Italian products as well as vegan and vegetarian choices. 5 to 7pm is Aperitivo time with wine tasting and a chance to sample complementary bites from the kitchen. Come at night to listen to soul music and jazz, an ideal soundtrack for friends catching up or for couples seeking intimate conversation amid a romantic setting. We offer a feast for all five senses, providing a little refuge from the noise and liveliness of Seminyak. Adorned with authentic details exuding old Bali charm, Zibiru revives the romance of the past with its whitewashed facade, hand-carved wooden interiors and handmade furnishings. We offer three different dining experiences: al fresco in the garden amidst lush tropical flora; under the stars of the rooftop lounge; or in the haven of its non-smoking interior. The menu showcases the best offerings from the field; market-fresh fish arrives daily, bread is homemade on site, and pasta is handcrafted from scratch. Organic heirloom vegetables are harvested from Zibiru's own environmentally friendly farm in the mountains of Bali. Zibiru offers a chance to taste the splendor of Italy's various regions all under one roof. Live jazz every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

“Fantastic Food, Amazing Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The food at this restaurant is amazing and authentic Italian. I tried a lot of the menu as we were a large group and not one of the menu items was a let down.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in Bali.
A full 5 stars for everything in this restaurant.
The owners were really good hosts and its clear that they are very excited and passionate about their restaurant.

The atmosphere is great, a little bit of Italy in the middle of Bali. I will be back, and I will definitely be bringing guests to show off Bali's best.

Thanks for such a great night.

“Quiet rooftop chill-out area ... Great find”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

We didn't eat here, so no food review; just two points.

1) Amazing rooftop garden area: quiet relaxing chill-out beds, didn't see anything else like this in Seminyak and we could see people were dining up here, so an amazing find
2) Real wines! Not something you necessarily come to Seminyak for, but after a while if you miss a good red; some good choices here away from the 5 star hotel prices (with some local wine thrown in for good measure).

Worth a visit for location and drinks alone.

“Surprise in Bali”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We just dined at this restaurant and it was a great surprise. After 5 days of misses with regard to food in Bali, this was 5 star! From the lovely waitress to the perfectly portioned food this was a little slice of heaven. The rooftop dining just added to the experience and created a lovely atmosphere. The gnocchi with chorizo was to die for and so to were the other dishes we had in our party of 5. It is a little hidden but well worth the time to find - you won't regret it. We will return before we leave.

“First Impression is The Last Impression”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Italian..italian. Who would say no to Italian?. The love for the food, the coffee and..the hunks?. Zibiru is one of hidden gems in Seminyak area. The first impression that I feel was homey, could it be because they have small little garden?.

Eat : Linguine alle vongole

Drink : Watermelon juice

Result : They made handmade pastas, fellas!. Fresh, tasty and I bow down for its clams. Salty, as it just freshly caught from the sea. White wine reduction cooked very well. I was very happy that I choosed this place. BUT.. the juice let me down. Too much water and it's actually bland.

They might need a big improvement in the service. The waiter ignored me couple times, i hope it's because the music was too loud.

OH! they got outside balcony, just in case you guys in urge to do stargazing.
However, i'll be back for the coffee.
