Enjoyed gnocchi special and carbonara dinners. Also got take away pizza as a picnic lunch for next day's travels. All good and food in nice bright modern restaurant with good service. Very close to our hotel and nice alternative to hotel menu.

Good food here which seems to be a continuous trend. Lovely building but can get very hot and noisy due to layout. The upstairs is amazing to sit at

Great pizza, my kids favourite place. I enjoy the pasta dishes which are reasonably priced, althoug I feel Pizza prices are little of the expensive side (12inch $30), but as I say the kids love them and if they're happy so am I. Lovely atmosphere inside, nice open plan dining, staff are friendly and service is fast.

First night in Dunedin and started walking from hotel to find a place for dinner. Right across the street we found Zucchini Brothers. The place was almost full but we snagged a table by the window. Really friendly service. One of the nights specials was a pork/pineapple pizza. It was great. Good local beer to top it off.

Located just 4 doors from our hotel and rated #28 in Dunedin, this was an obvious choice for us. The service was friendly and efficient and the food fresh, tasty and plentiful. If this restaurant is #28 then the first 27 must be incredible!! I had a bowl of pasta with mussels ...expected maybe 5 or 6 mussels...I stopped counting... More

Ate here in Feb 2017 with friends. Choices of pizza were ok, the pizzas were ok, but nothing really to write home about. Modern decor, good cocktail list (and not bad cocktail prices considering how central the restaurant is). We were seated upstairs which was very hot and stuffy - but staff allowed us to open the door onto the... More

Funky family restaurant in the CBD with great pizzas and pasta. Not wood fired but tasty nonetheless. Oh and Emersons on tap too!

Was very happy to find this super restaurant in the heart of the city. Had to admit I did not expect the great Italian food in a city that has such strong Scottish history but there it is. Service was spot on, great staff, lovely ambiance, prices reasonable and most importantly, the food was wonderful. Rachael, the boss lady, runs... More

We have been eating at Zucchini Bros for 20 years, and it remains our top pick for a family night out. Long list of pizzas, including the kiwi classic "#2" - ham, pineapple and tinned spaghetti: only in NZ! - and a great selection of pasta dishes. Not to mention their garlic bread and soups and the yummy desserts. The... More

Opposite the very cool Distinction Dunedin Hotel. The pizza toppings were all top notch and nice crispy bases.
