About La Zeppa

One of the best inner city bars to indulge in great food & wine around the fireplace

La Zeppa is situated at 33 Drake St Freeman's Bay, directly behind Victoria park market. La Zeppa has the feel of a New York industrial warehouse which has been lovingly transformed into a spacious bar set with wrought iron candelabras, dim lighting on soft brick and a large open fireplace. The music is mastered by local DJs at the weekends; they ensure it is played for their customers each evening, not themselves.

La Zeppa focuses on the fact that people want to enjoy each others company with a great glass of wine and tasty plates, without the constraints of having to book or have a meal at a certain time - it is the ultimate meeting place - a catch up over a glass of wine, a sit down meal or a function for a large group of friends or colleagues.

When you are at La Zeppa anywhere you rest your elbow, your will receive great service, fantastic food, a great wine list and an atmosphere you won't forget.

Decent food and drink, cool menu concept. Space feels a bit dead/empty but service is friendly and attentive.

It's a very quiet and private restaurant. The fire place adds to the atmosphere. The table service was great and very friendly. The only thing that wasnt great was that we had a long time for our large platters to arrive. Everything else was great and the food tasted great as well (not a massive fan of the beef kofta though)

The food was delicious. It was quite expensive as the portion sizes are very small but the food was very tasty and good quality.

Amazing wait staff. Perfect level of attention without being too fussy. Super friendly and efficient. And those Apple Empanadas were the stars of the night!

Although the ambiance, food and experience was good; I felt that the staff were too pushy. We were more than happy just talking over the last glass or so of our wine but kept being asked if we wanted dessert, if we needed anything else, if we were after another drink. It was early (before 9pm) so long before closing, and the restaurant wasn't busy so there was no need for our table back so I'm not sure why the staff kept approaching us instead of just letting us be. Unfortunate as the rest of the experience was lovely.

Service was very slow, appeared to be understaffed. Sangria and food was quite good though.

La Zeppa were fantastic in helping me to organise a 30th birthday party and make last minute changes due to bad weather. Incredible Service, great value for money and a great atmosphere!
