Dining, Wining and Clubbing

Indonesia Tatler Traveller, Sept 2014

An in-the-know guide to some of Bali's best places at the best time.
By Samantha Coomber

Unassuming down a side-street, this sweet gastro-atelier, helmed by Roman chef-owner Luigi Calcagno dishes-up traditional Italian cuisine. Zibiru serves not only rustic homecooking with made-from-scratch fresh pastas, organic produce, and fine Italian wines that lure the Italian community, but also less well-known regional recipes (note the pizza-free zone), which few restaurants serve, such as Umbrian gnocchi norcina. White timbered, handcrafted interiors charm, but dine on the open-air, upper mezzanine terrace, illuminated by white lanterns. Zibiru goes upbeat on Wednesday and Saturday nights with live jazz in the garden.
