Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Firstly the staff were lovely. I went with my boyfriend and was looking forward to a nice meal as the reviews were so high. Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience. Mainly, my boyfriend found a hair in his pizza. I ordered carbonara which lacked...flavour and tasted just like double cream. The accompanying bread was drenched in olive oil. Our starters came out after we finished the main meal. Pizza was €18 and my carbonara was €16. Expensive place which I wouldn’t mind if it was up to standard but definitely was not.More

Amazing service from Zach and Liam as always! Great strawberry daiquiris as well. Come here often and it is one of my fav places.. the new menu however is a massive downgrade. No option to chose your pasta anymore, we did request our chicken al...fredo be made with tagliatelle but when it arrived our waiter apologised as the chef made it with shell pasta anyway. It was just a mushroom pasta not creamy like before. Very disappointing.More

When staying overnight in Galway we headed with out two teenage kids for dinner at Zappi's. The place had a nice colourful, casual and lively ambience and the service was great, (thanks Zach you were super helpful). The Pizza's we had were all very good...and not too pricey either at around €14 each.More

Had an absolutely wonderful time in this heavily establishment. The food was eclectic, divine with generous portions and the waiter was equally brilliant, Zach. I couldn’t have asked for a more attentive, caring and genuinely interested staff member. It was a such a special night...for me and my fiancé. I will definitely be back!! Zappis is my new favourite restaurant!!! GRAZIE MILLEMore

I went on a Sunday for pizza for lunch with my family. I had high hopes for the place due to incredibly high reviews placing it at no. 2 in Galway. I was disappointed. The pizzas were average at best and service was unenthusiastic. I...can't rate their pastas and desserts as I didn't feel like risking spending more money on mediocre food. The high reviews are highly misleading and there are many Italian restaurants better than Zappi's in Galway. I will not be going back.More

Myself & my husband had a lovely meal here last Saturday for our anniversary. The food was fantastic and the staff were really nice & welcoming. Zac showed us to our table & they decorated it with a balloon & flower for our anniversary which...we thought was lovely! The food was delicious. We both had bruschetta for starters & it was lovely with really fresh tomatoes. For mains we both had pasta dishes which were also delicious. For dessert we ordered gelato. When they brought it out there was extra scoops of gelato & brownie on a plate presented with candles in it. When we asked about it they said it was for our anniversary. We thought that was so lovely & generous of them! The staff were also lovely, Caoimhe, our server was really nice & friendly. We felt very welcome here & felt the staff went above & beyond to make our visit special. The meal was one of the nicest that we've ever had! We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Galway & we will definitely returnMore

We dined here last night as a large party (10 people). We were celebrating my mums 60th birthday and they honestly could not have done any more for us! They had balloons on the table when we arrived and they made sure that she had...such a special evening. We were able to order drinks and starters and they came back to us when we had settled in to take our main course orders. The food was absolutely top notch. Every one of us was raving about the meal! They even brought out a brownie and sang happy birthday! Honestly, the staff are an absolute credit to this establishment! They made our night so special. Will definitely be back!More

Ate in this lovely restaurant last night and what a find. Stumbled on it by chance and food and service excellent. Zach was fabulous and such an asset to the place - if I was a restaurant owner I’d be poaching him! The food was...delicious too - with very generous portions and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit and we’ll definitely be back next time in GalwayMore

We visited Zappi's during our stay in Galway and really enjoyed. We have eaten pasta (Spaghetti Carbonara and gluten free Pasta Quattro Stagioni) and we agreed, that this has been the best pasta we have eaten in Ireland. The staff was very nice and the...wine was also fine. Visit Zappi's during your visit in Galway!More

Booked for a crowd of fifty-somethings for an early dinner before libations. Atmosphere, service, food was all fantastic. Even when one of our crowd got a bit cantankerous about shells on a Frutti di Mare pizza (!!) the waiter replaced quickly and seamlessly, without hesitation....Would highly recommend.More
