Food and service was good. The tapas/sides came out pretty fast but the mains came out a bit longer than expected hence 4/5

Amazing wait staff, so kind and welcoming! Also food she recommended (aracinni) was amazing we ended up ordering by its own and platter with aranccini!
Also Paella was just so delicious we ended up oerdering one more plate.
Amazing venue, everyone was in love with the deck area decorated with cherry blossom tree and pink paper lanterns! I am booking the next visit now:-)

Relaxed dining, good atmosphere and attentive wait staff. Food was lovely, had the tapas plus big plates which was all tasty. My only (small) issue was the goats cheese dish - there was such a tiny amount of goats cheese and it really needed more. Apart from that we had a great evening.

Had a lovely evening. Most of the food was delicious. One dish was chewy but they instantly apologised and took it off our bill which was great service. Lovely location and great value!

La Zeppa has beautiful ambiance, decor and it suitable for functions. We ordered their Pink Valentine themed drinks to start off with which was a Candy Floss Vodka and Coconut Kombucha Spider Drink. Both were delectable especially in the hot weather.
We ordered 5 tapas - polenta, mushrooms, Pork Cheek croquette, Fish croquette and Arancini balls. All cooked well with the pork cheek being the definite winner out of the dishes.
Will be back for sure with more people to try out their large dishes!

Thanks so much for having us La Zeppa!

The reservation time was not so early like the other restaurant times so didn’t have to rush.
The staff knew that we were the First table customers so didn’t have to mention it.
Food was great.
Atmosphere was great too, next time I will sit outside to have a relaxing dining experience with friends and family.

Great variety of tapas, limited choices for main and sides but it has a few shared platters on the menu. Music were a bit too loud for dining pleasure. Tapas we had we a bit too oilly to our taste and fries were over done. Despite so service was great and overall we had a great Mediterranean casual dining experience.

Fantastic food, great service. Genuine, thoughtful staff. Rooftop area is beautiful. A haven of great food and city centre views. The pork belly in particular was just wonderful - beautifully rendered, soft and crispy.

Dinner and drinks at La Zeppa was an amazing experience for my partner and myself. There was a wonderful carefree atmosphere while the staff were still attentive and helpful, as well as being very friendly. We ordered 6 tapas between the two of us which was the perfect amount. The food was quite exotic to us but we approached it with an open mind and tried things we normally wouldn't. I definitely wasn't disappointed! All of the food was delicious and perfectly cooked, my personal favourite being the pork cheek while my partner loved the beef. We had a few cocktails aswell which were lovely and we finished off our night with a toblerone dessert cocktail which was the perfect amount of rich and sweet.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend La Zeppa to anyone who wants a relaxing night out.

Myself and a friend were looking for a restaurant for dinner, saw La Zappa on first table and thought we would give it a shot. So glad we did, pretty sure I’ve found my new favorite place!

The atmosphere is great, we had a few drinks outside in the sun before moving inside for dinner. The food was incredible and I can’t say enough good things about our waitress she was so incredibly helpful and knew the menu so well, we were a bit indecisive about what we wanted to order and she made life so much easier! Can’t wait to come back!

Four of us dinner at La Zeppa on Sunday night 23/09/18. We had a great time. Atmosphere was wonderful and the food was scrumptious! The service was excellent. Two of us had the seafood paella, one the lamb rump dish and one the braised short rib. These dishes didn’t disappoint. They were truly delicious. Would highly recommend.

Had a nice quiet evening with a few friends. Food was decent, was surprised to see that there were no dishes with chicken and the dessert menu was a bit limited. Recommend the pork belly, short ribs and paella!
