Zico Cucina & Bar
This cafe and bar, Situated on Courtenay Place, right in the heart of Wellington's theatre land, is a great stopping-off place for a quality snack or upmarket meal. Superb presentation, friendly service and an excellent reputation for fine food make this a popular venue. An intimate setting and sidewalk seating in summer add to the casual charm of the place. The all day menu offers a great choice of authentic Italian dishes.
During a recent trip back to Wellington we were taken out to Zico's for dinner. The food was lovely, the people generally friendly and it was even nicer that we bumped into two sets of friends we hadn't seen for ages. Two things marred the experience, one was that there were 6 of us and we were obliged to sit at the small wooden round tables by the window which are very precarious which we can understand if the place remained full but when we asked if we could move to another, more comfortable table if one became available we were told NO which is not at all understandable. As it was the restaurant started to empty out and we were stuck! The other but was the attitude of the waitress, who brought out the dish of piping hot lasagne with no warning that it was steaming hot formy 9 year old daughter, and she nearly burnt herself...thank goodness my husband got there first... when we told her that she hadn't told us and that it would be good to warn people to avoid accidents, the answer was that it was written on the menu and well, we should have seen it - totally offhand. A simple warning, especially where children are concerned wouldn't hurt...Whilst we enjoyed the company and the food our appreciation was somewhat marred...
What a amazing restaurant,from the food to service.My friends and i decided to go out for italian and decided to go to Zicos considering no one had been there,now we can not stop we are there every second week for pleasure and business,you can just taste the freshness in everything from there amazing veal,pastas and desserts,if only we had found this place earlier,i will not step in to another italian restaurant in Wellington unless it is Zicos. Thank you to the team.......
Wow, I haven't had that much fun or eaten so well for a long time! The staff where friendly and the food to die for. If your a local and haven't been there....what are you waiting for? If your a visitor you need to go here!
The food was great. Classy and not expensive. Decent mains with no need for seconds! Decor was interesting! Okay, we were out the back with what could have been blank walls, but the murals had us on the waterfront working out which way the wind was blowing!
Food was good, price reasonable. I especially enjoyed the veal!
What spoilt the whole experience is the attitude of the manager that night when we paid using the entertainment card. He was rude to begin with, then thought it was the entertainment card gave 25% off. When I tried to correct him, he cut me off mid-sentence twice, adamant that he was right, then when I insisted, he tossed our EFTPOS card on the counter, let out a big sigh and picked up whatever documentation he had to check.
Then called a junior staff over, rattled off in some foreigh language and said roughly, "will you handle this". We were right in the end, and even if we were wrong, that was absolutely in-excusable.
This quality seafood restaurant, in a converted wooden warehouse, is uniquely positioned on the waterfront for relaxed indoor and outdoor
dining. It is crowded on Friday nights with after work drinkers and at lunch time when the sun shines. ...
This cafe was the juice bar trendsetter, the first of several to open in the city, and long may its
cheap and cheeky style last. With bright yellow decor, scattered tables, magazines, and a steady stream of foot traffic ...
