An elegant restaurant - beautiful old brick vaulted ceiling - serving simple but sophisticated food. The mixed antipasti is very generous. Lovely lamb scottaditto and of course excellent pasta.

Had a nice meal here recently. Restaurant is decorated and furnished tastefully. Food is interesting. Recommend as a starter the cheese brûlée not so much the fish baccala tempura which was disappointing. The main courses are predominantly meat so if you like your steak or lamb you will not be disappointed. The restaurant also a good wine list. Overall would... More

I live here in Umberide and had visited Zibu at least three times in 2014, finally concluding that the food just was not up to snuff and resolving not to return. Recently I was told they had a new chef so we decided to give them another chance. Well, we were pleasantly surprised. The menu was completely changed! They brought... More

This was our first visit to Zibu this year having eaten there some time ago. The menu had changed completely moving away from more traditional Umbrian dishes to more sophisticated dishes. The carpaccio of fish as a starter was excellent, the cold cuts were very good and a very generous serving was offered. The sea bass main was very good... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends when we stayed in Umbertide. The food, price and service were all first class. Wish we had been able to go back there for another night but ran out of time and money! The proprietor spoke English very well and was most attentive and helpful, but most of all the food was absolutely... More

On our first night in Umbria, we had a perfect meal at Zibu, which had been recommended by a knowledgeable local chef. And she was right! The food was terrific; fresh, locally sourced, delicious and beautifully presented. And served with friendly, but not invasive style by a lovely young waiter, who also worked on my dreadful Italian pronunciation. The price... More

The owners of this trendy restaurant want you to have a great meal. You are offered Prosecco on arrival and small anti pasto. All of the meals have been great. I especially enjoyed the chicken breast. The only complaint. The food is so filling that I have never had dessert here.

Given the typical Italian fare this was something different and special. Used local produce well. Definitely worth a visit in a town that doesn't offer a Lot
