    Great restaurant. Casual, wonderful ambiance. It was a warm night we sat in their courtyard. Italian simplicity at it's best. Tasty entrees we shared amongst the 4 of us. Followed by pastas. Squid pasta, zucchini flower pasta and a beef Ragu, accompanied by a fresh garden salad. Small but diverse wine list. Excellent service and authentic Italian music softly in the background. Couldn't ask for anything more with friends. Visit this place not only for it's lunchtime paninis but it's true Italian simplicity at night. They do it so well.

    The perfect little neighbourhood Italian place, bringing Trattoria style dining to Hawksburn Village with a warm lively vibe. Loved the calamari with grilled radicchio, which could have been a larger dish for sharing. Welcoming and attentive staff.

    Refined elegance combined with authentic Italian fare and ambience. The croquettes tasted of truffle and took me back to walks in the forest on Provence… the tiramisu was full espresso flavored but of delicate touch!! if I could award a Michelin star I would!!

    Officine Zero has always been a favourite for coffee and brunch, and the courtyard setting is spacious and especially attractive in these days of Covid when we prefer to eat outside but don't want to sit on a noisy footpath. Food was great, staff attentive. Thoroughly recommend.

    Tried the restaurant for the first time… food ,wine and menu were great…bordering on excellent. Not so great was the austere surroundings..Cold and uninviting with 2 doors open to the street.. This could be a very good restaurant if they addressed three issues..austerity,Italian music needed and I am not sure if it’s a takeaway shop or a restaurant …

    We love Officine Zero. We are always greeted warmly by Priscilla and made to feel welcome. The food is delicious. My only teeny disappointment is that I love a basket of good Italian bread for the table & it isn’t available. Jennifer Opie

    The food was amazing but the serving size was a little on the small side considering the cost. We went there for my husbands 50th and there wasn't so much as a Happy Birthday - not exactly what I was hoping for as an occasion. Don't think they bothered to read my special request and occasion information. Go for the food but you'll have to save for it, it ain't cheap for what you get!

    Nice place. Had dinner and wine which was good but I believe their lunch menu is more extensive so if I went back I’d probably go for lunch as the dinner menu is quite limited. Value was about right too I thought. The venue is quite intimate.

    I adore visiting Officine Zero for lunch with friends. I am always greeted by the warm, smiling young woman who is front of house. Mainly we enjoy the entrees, wine, beautiful coffee and a yummy cake. I recommend the eggplant parmigiana and the tart in pumpkin puree. My fav roll is full of tasty meatballsI am loving the new in home made tomato sauce. Occasionally the staff can be forgetful but it is a buzzing cafe and they are run off their feet so it is perfectly forgiveable.
