Great service - really friendly. The food was ok - some tapas where amazing and others were not so good - but overall we enjoyed the night and would recommend to others.

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!

A great dining experience with a stunning location. Though we chose to dine inside by the fireplace as it was a bit chilly, the outside deck was gorgeous with fairy lights and a good view of the Sky Tower. Inside was cozy and warm, and the service was friendly. We ordered a large plate to share between the 4 of us - it was the pork belly served with cauliflower sauce. It was crispy, creamy and very delicious although a little bit on the smaller side for a large plate. We also ordered 7 tapas to share, each of them tasted really good with the different hummus/sauces complementing the dishes very well. We ended up getting an extra flatbread as it was simply divine. Do not skip their mushroom medley - it was remarkable. Their chorizos were also worth a special mention.

An indoor fireplace which sets the perfect mood for date night. My partner and i shared 7 Tapas, 1 large plate and a side, all of which was packed with flavour (the Short rib and Pork cheek croquettes are a must) The outdoor area would be the perfect summer setting with the Sky tower on show.

Food was delicious, but took a while to turn up (even tapas). Mains beautifully presented and so flavoursome , but do remember to get some sides as well, as wasn't quite enough. In saying that - we had three 16 year olds with us.
Would like to give it another try.

Had an excellent time! We had the arancini balls, baked polenta, and flat bread with the lamb rump and short rib. Stand out was the lamb rump, would recommend most highly! The rest of the meal was great too. The texture and flavour in the arancini balls in particular is worth experiencing.

Wonderful ambience, the fire place was great to sit beside while enjoying a rose sangria. The tapas was yummy but very small so we needed to order a lot. Main dishes were delish but not good for sharing.
Overall, a nice evening

If you like Tapas and small portions to try a bit of everything, this is the place to try, Great ambience if you like the dark but cozy type feel. Loved sitting by the fire as we were in the middle of the cold winter chill. Grab this deal, and order up - you won't be disappointed!
