The Chanterelles tasted like an old rubber tire would, horrible texture and no flavor. The baked macaroni was glooopy, stringy, and again flavorless. Could only take one bite. The minestrone was slightly cold (probably microwaved), with awkwardly shaped vegetables, but half edible. The baby leaf salad brought to me that I hadn't ordered was covered in oil. My friend laughed that the meatballs were "maybe the worst (he'd) had". I think the hummus was straight from Trader Joe's. The pita served with it was not warmed. Had to ask twice for a bread basket. The bread was good. The menu selections were terrible. But, maybe it was just those SIX selections. BUT! It's pretty inside, and quiet. The waitress was accommodating, kind and helpful with wine selections. If you're looking for a true fine dining experience, stick to 231 Ellsworth, or Baume if you're into French cuisine.

Zibibbo is a solid choice in Palo Alto. They have a good atmosphere, decent food made from good seasonal ingredients, and the restaurant is large enough that they almost always have availability. It's not a standout by any means, but it also won't disappoint. I've eaten a lot of different things here, but I'd particular recommend the Albondigas (meatballs) on the Antipasti menu, the Israeli Cigars appetizer (potato and chives wrapped in phyllo dough and fried), the pastas and the Salmon. They also have few red meat specials (Prime RIb, Ribeye) on different nights that are also really good. The pizzas aren't anything special. The bar here is a good place to chill out after work - they make a good cosmo.

Second time at Zibibo. First one was pretty good a few months ago, this time around it's a total disappointment. Food and service were definitely low quality for a restaurant of Zibibo level. They would not create a custom cheese and charcuterie plate and charge for tasting the wine?! Paella was the hottest I ever got in a restaurant - it just would not cool off and was impossible to eat like that. On top of all, the place itself is so huge that it's impossible to fill it and it looks pretty empty on a Fri night, even though quantity-wise there is enough people there.

Friendly service and tasty food. Amazing coconut sorbet, and I usually can't stand coconut.

We were with a group of 100+ people and the service was awesome. My wine never was empty and they were on it. The wait staff was great. Food was great as well. Had the salmon and was incredible.

We just had dinner at Zibibbo. It was ok. I wouldn't come back here just because it's too pricey and the food was just ok. It's a big restaurant. It's not very cozy. The only cozy place is the bar section with the couch and a quiet street in the front and the little patio. But the big room of the restaurant is not very nice and looks like a diner. Feels cold. We had our table in the bar room which was nice but the service there isn't the best. Pretty slow. As an appetizer we had the mushroom bruschetta which is cold, the pita&tzatziki and the pork plate which my husband really liked. The Linguine Pasta with shrimp, the rosemary chicken and the mahi mahi were all good but not worth the price I think.

DEspite the other reviews, I had a good dining experience here...quick service at the bar, chewy gnocchi with a spicy lamb ragout and crunchy vegetable sides. Maybe I just lucked out, but I'd go back and take my chances again.
