A word from Zibibbo 73 Trattoria Italiana & Bar
The zibibbo grape, also known as Muscat of Alexandra. It is considered an “ancient vine” and some wine experts believe it is one of the oldest genetically unmodified vines still in existence. This vine made it’s way to Italy in 1773 from the arabic nations where the name was zibibb. Italy had the perfect climate and rich soil for the vine. This made Italy a recognizable country in wine making. Zibibbo73 Ristorante & Raw Bar in Stafford, VA. brings a taste of the old world cuisine in a modern setting, to our area.

    I've dined at Zibibbo 73 many times and have never been disappointed. Their authentic menu is well worth the trip. Looking forward to my next dining experience at Zibibbo.

    The Maître d' restaurante was exceptionally attentive and amiable. And while the restaurant is located in a strip-mall w/ no scenic view or local ambiance, the warmth and hospitality inside welcomes you into a wonderful graceful stetting. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her lamb chops, but my stuff pork chop was overly salted. Way too much salt!! It may have been the sauce, but I am not sure. Regardless, I give the pork chop just an average grade, and especially so for the price charged. I plan to go again because we had a family split decision on the dining experience. I think the key to the good meal will be to ask for no or low salt!!

    Delicious homemade pasta makes this restaurant. But an inattentive wait staff and mistakes on orders will keep me away.

    Entrees(lamb chop special and veal piccatta) were good tasting and hot.Appetizers were the best(mussels and meatball rolls). Italian bread for table should come with butter and the pesto.Chocolate ice cream/filling ball outstanding.Cocktails were watered down and we asked for on the rocks???Martini came in water tumbler???and $8 each.Advice for future customers...buy $20 bottle of chianti!Service fair,spoke way too fast,couldnt understand explained menu items and had to ask for a few forgotten items.Loved the piano accompanyment!!!!!

    My husband picked this place out for our date night. He had lamb which was cooked perfect and well worth the money we spent. I had lasagna which was hearty. Great Italian food. The portion sizes we just right. The menus isn't too big which makes it easier to pick a meal. They also have a lot of seafood options. I will be going back to the restaurant again.

    This was our first visit and will not be our last! Went with another couple and each tried something different. All dishes were outstanding! Visited on a Wednesday so enjoyed $12 a bottle (select wines) wine night. The Tiramisu was heavenly. Why hadn't we heard of this restaurant before now?!?

    We enjoyed our experience here! The owner made an effort to introduce himself and made us feel extremely welcome. Our server was friendly and helpful and made great suggestions. The food was excellent- we had the bolognese, pork special, and split the best cheesecake ever! We even received a 10% discount for staying at the Mariott hotel across the street. If we are in town again, we will definitely be back!

    This was a first experience dining at Zibibbos. Upon arrival we were told by our greeter that we would receive a 10% Four Seasons Discount. He specifically told our waiter that we are to receive the discount. However, the waiter gave us a check for the full meal price. Zibibbos would be advised not to offer the discount, rather than make the offer and take it back. The meal was very good and the wine was excellent. Our dessert and coffee added to a most enjoyable dining experience. This is a restaurant where food quality is high.

    I was in town and business, dined with a local friend here. The place was great, the ambience, the food and the service. The owner is very hands on and makes you feel like you're his special guest. The selection of drinks were very varied(both in beers and wine). The food is incredible and a culinary experience.

    I ordered Eggplant Parm, a classic I frequently order in restaurants because my husband doesn't like it and there is little point to making it at home. I ordered Caprese salad...their fresh mozzarella was outstanding, a lovely soft center. Needed more balsamic vinegar. Overall, it was a very good meal. The bread they serve is a rather weak offering. Not really crusty like a good Italian bread. That is fine with me because who needs the carbs anyway!
