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.

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Went to this place after reading TA reviews and we were not disappointed.
Sat upstairs, which was lovely. We ordered our mains/drinks, then had a complimentary pumpkin soup turn up (which was divine). Main I had lamb tagliatelle, which was very nice. Hubby had the special snapper, which he said was better than ok, but not outstanding. For dessert we has the chocolate fondant and carrot cake, again, both very tasty.
Really surprised this place wasnt busier than what it was. Well worth a visit!

“Taken by surprise!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I really never expected to have such mouth watering authentic Italian food so far away from Europe! Home is less than a 2 hour plane ride to Italy and it is tough to find a proper Italian place as good as this one! Wow! 5 stars!
ps: restaurant is also a delight to look at, it is quirky and colourful, with lots of interesting corners and tables!

“Not bad at all”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Had a creamy crab pasta which was fresh and not too cloying. Not sure if they do but the texture of the pasta felt like it was freshly-made too. Service was good and quick.

Loved the quirky interior of the place, its mismatched furniture. You also get to choose where to sit - inside (air-conditioned), outside, upstairs or at the verandah outside on the second floor. Love the concept!
