A brilliant local place to dine with very welcoming staff. The garlic bread is a MUST, the mocktails are wonderful and the wine list is spot on.

We had the crayfish bisque with sourdough (turns out I didn't know what bisque was, but was pleasantly surprised) and the arancini to start. Followed that up with a couple pizzas (Funghi and Salmone). I would go as far as to say that those two pizzas were the best I've ever had in Wellington/anywhere. I will definitely be coming by next week for some take away pizza. The food was incredible; even writing about it makes me hungry.

General atmosphere was really cute and relaxed - few families, few couples, etc. We loved all the different salt and pepper shakers they had (nice touch). Overall, it was a great evening and I would 100% recommend checking this place out.

The best mocha in Wellington, especially with rich chocolate. When we lived in Seatoun, we used to have brunch here every week, we both love soup and bread here. Their pizza so big and if you are a fan of seafood, you would love here.

If you are looking for good, hearty Italian food, friendly service and a relaxed, casual dining atmosphere then Arcimboldi in Seatoun is for you! The crayfish bisque is delicious and substantial, perfect for a chilly Wellington evening. The chilli prawns on rocket are tasty and succulent - yum! There is a great range of pizzas and while the pastas and main courses are not hugely extensive, they are well selected so that there are plenty of good options for everyone. The meal portions are decent size - we had the beef schnitzel and the pork saltimbocca, both very good - and couldn't finish our meals. Unfortunately we were too full to sample the dessert menu, which included Italian favourites like tiramisu, pannacotta and gelato - next time! There is a good drinks menu, including local craft beers and even some Italian wines you can buy by the glass. Definitely coming back!

The food was delicious! It was the best spaghetti bolognese I've had in a long time, and the Carbonara was so creamy and cheesy. To finish the night off with Tiramisu was perfect as well. Highly recommend!

Food was authentic and light. We were so impressed with the multigrain bread that comes with my smoked fish omelette that we had to takeway a loaf as it was simply delicious just with butter. Will definitely patronize again.

Arcimboldi is a lovely new restaurant/cafe in Seatoun, a seaside suburb of Wellington.

This was my first time using First Table anywhere.I have been frequenting Arcimboldi since it opened and knew how good it was!

Their food is delicious and reasonably priced.Beautiful starters, pasta and pizzas, and desserts!And, a good selection of wines...

The staff are very welcoming and friendly and nothing is a problem.

To top it off, the restaurant has been nicely decorated - it has two dining areas and a very pleasant sheltered area out the back for those
warm sunny days (even in winter).

Arcimboldi has a great ‘vibe’ - a warm, welcoming atmosphere.Also, it is open for coffees and counter food during the day which is great for locals and visitors alike!Their muffins especially are superb!!!!

Very highly recommended!!!!

Four of us enjoyed our experience at Arcimboldi. The neck chops were very tender and the lobster bisque was full of flavour. Can recommend the orange panacotta. Lovely friendly buzz on Sunday morning, pleasant looking out over the garden even on grey day. Staff were friendly and obliging. Highly recommended for Sunday brunch.

Excellent. Very very impressed with the polished service. We rarely get service as good as this now days. Couldn't fault the service or the food. In fact it was my daughter's birthday and I asked when we were there if they had a candle if they could bring it out on a piece of cake with our deserts. Not a problem at all, even though I didn't gave a candle or think of it earlier. definitely return and recommend to others.
