    Wonderful staff. Lovely setting. Food cooked fresh. Had the pasta / fish dish. Very small amount of fish and it was cool by the time it came to the table. But the sauce was lovely.

    We recently ate here for a family gathering. The food exceeded our expectations. It was delicious. The service was really good and there was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. We ate early so it was quiet but still lovely.

    Ambience good but service extremely slow and no reason offered for this. Had 4 calamari with salad for starter. main course was pizza but very disappointing for an Italian restaurant - counted 4 jalapenos on the entire pizza, not spicy and poor base, The chef seemed to be operating single handed but this is no excuse for relatively average food and slow service - approx. 45 minutes between start and main course.

    We celebrated my birthday and my father’s 80th at Zappi’s on Sunday 3rd December! We had the most wonderful time! Our table was decorated with balloons and we got complimentary dessert to celebrate! The service and food was amazing although some favourites were missing off the menu. My parent’s bolognaise was a different recipe and perhaps not as good as it used to be but my Chicken Carbonara and my husband’s pizza were delicious! Thank you Zappi’s for such a lovely level of attention and care!

    Not a good value. Dock ragu hardly had any duck. They were out of pizza dough. Loud music. Scented candles on the tables? Food was poor quality. Portions were big. You won't leave hungry but you will leave disappointed.

    Delicious dinner last night at Zappi’s. It was a Sunday so wasn’t busy but all options were available. We shared the bruschetta and a garlic bread to start - melt in the mouth combo of tomatoes, garlic and pesto with a sweet touch of balsamic vinegar. We both had the carbonara as a main - also delicious! Portions are generous!! I couldn’t finish my main - well worth a visit. We felt it was excellent value and the staff are lovely. Definitely on our list for a return trip to Galway in the future.

    Average Italian meal. I ordered a burrata caprese salad which was far too sweet and pappardelle with mushrooms and got spaghetti. Hubby ordered the vegetarian pizza and enjoyed it. Wait staff were pretty disengaged, so all in all, I won’t be back.

    I had a bad experience although the staff were friendly. Caesar salad had way too much mayonnaise and Parmesan. The croutons were completely stale. Calamari didn’t have the sinew taken off. Carbonara was not carbonara, more of a cream sauce. Pasta was not cooked. Gnocchi was nice. Breadsticks were good. It started well as we were having an anniversary and we were welcomed warmly. Our starters took 35mins to come out which is a bit long. We were not asked how our meal was even with food left on plates. Or asked during our meal. We paid and left and cannot say we will go back.
