I want there because of reviews on trip advisor and a friend recommendation. We have waited about 20 minutes just to enter. The placa is big enough for families and friend. The pizza is good, not the best as they say. Price is average for italian food but not a good service. They made a mistake with the bill and... More

Amazing thin crust, inventive toppings, and inconspicuously vegetarian. We had to wait for 40 mins but it was totally worth it!

I walked in expecting a Mediterranean menu of lamb chops, with octopus and beef tips. To my pleasant surprise I discovered that this was a vegetarian restaurant. The place is beautiful and I decided to try the menu. The pizza (I got the mushroom and spinach) was fantastic. The garden salad was also very good. I definitely recommend to everyone,... More

My husband and I ate dinner here. We thought we'd have two pizzas and an appetizer of hummus. The wait staff kindly told us it would be too much. She was right! The hummus was like an entree on its own. We shared a pizza which worked. They offered to make us a combination pizza; so we had a pizza... More

We visited Zorba twice during our stay in Medellin. All courses are vegetarian, but don't let this scare you. The salads and pizza's they serve here are something else! You can go half-and-half with the pizza's which i can recommend (they all taste delicious). The place looks amazing, plays nice loud music (mostly classic rock) and the crowd is young.... More

We found this restaurant expecting a typical Italian restaurant, and didn't realise it was a vegetarian restaurant until we saw the menu. We are most certainly not veggies but these pizzas were out of this world. While the service was a little slow (admittedly it was very busy), it was well worth the wait. The pizzas were truly delicious and... More

We showed up around 8 and were told were met with a relatively short wait. We were taken to sit out back on the patio, which allowed us to walk through most of the restaurant and really take in its atmosphere. The atmosphere is really, really nice, just loud enough to not have to yell to be heard and just... More

Unfortunately Colombia (a wonderful country) has mostly terrible food. It's very hard to find unique, fresh and especially healthy food. Markets are starting to pop up, finally and so are a few wonderful exceptions to the Colombian Food Problem. Zorba is amazing. Fresh ingredients, really attentive staff and a beautiful group of women cooking in front of everyone so you... More
