The hospitality, food, and dining experience have consistently been excellent and memorable. Each plate of food was a delight and we all exchanged our experience in terms of taste , quality and the uniqueness of... More

This is a great local spot that consistently offers mouth watering, quality dining. Situated in the Tygervalley Waterfront, the restaurant offers inside and outside seating with views over the water. The owners are experienced restauranteurs having previously owned an eatery in Tygervalley and have now been at the Waterfront for 10 years. The menu has a wide offering to accommodate... More

Wonderful fresh Caprese salad and Beef Carpaccio for starters and great Veal Limone with stir fryed vegtables for main and a devine Praline parfait for dessert. Very friendly and efficient service as well. We were a large group of 14 and everything came out at the same time - impressive!

My son wanted to celebrate his birthday in Italian style.So we decided to go to Zibaldone.The food was good but we all felt that it was overpriced as it was only a pasta dish.The decor was fine but I was left wondering whether Italiam folk would frequent this restuarant.The firnishings were of good quality but the restuarant lacked atmospher.

A friend and I had dinner at Zibaldone's to try their pizza (which is only available certain days of the week). While the pizza was good, it was over priced considering there are so many other amazing pizza places in Cape Town that charge less. The restaurant also had a very cold and stale atmosphere. The service on the other... More

As usual we were well served by the staff. The atmosphere was brilliant, soft unobtrusive music, tables well set, cutlery and glasses gleaming, which makes for a special treat. The food was outstanding with everybody cleaning their plates. I always go back and have never been let down. This is my number one restuarant for sure, well done!

My boyfriend and I were there for lunch on Sunday. The waiter was excellent, fantastic recommendations and he knew his job well. The starters were out of this world, so fresh and light. We opted for a light lunch too, the chicken stirfy was perfect. I managed to squeeze in dessert as well and the panna cotta was out of... More

I love going to Zibaldone as the food is always outstanding. Also, there is enough variety to satisfy all taste buds. The ambiance is relaxing and suits both romantic evening as well as a group get-together. I'll highly recommend Zibaldone for an evening out!
