Zucchini Bros. was almost next door to our hotel (Scenic Southern Cross) in downtown Dunedin. It was busy without being crowded and we had a very relaxed and pleasant dinner.

First time here in this restaurant and I was very impressed, we shared a pizza and a penne pasta meal and the pizza was crisp and tasty, the toppings not over the top, ha ha, but very well put together. The pasta was fantastic and full of punchy flavour and taste. The Italian wine; Giro, was a great compliment for... More

On an overnight business trip and this restaurant was recommended by the receptionist at the hotel I'm staying at. What an absolute gem you've got here in Dunedin. My waiter was really welcoming from the moment I stepped in the door. Authentically friendly and genuine. Seated me quickly in a quiet spot (which is what I wanted after a very... More

Haven't eaten with these guys for a while. Lured by the good reviews popped in prior to a concert to try. Not disappointed. Wine by the glass was prompt and reasonably priced, (wouldn't say the same for the bottle cost on the list), the pizzas are good and the pasta with the shrimp zucchini peas and lemon is a real...

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.

Thank Sharon C
