Rumours Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt is in Wellington are supported by an apparent sighting at a local restaurant.

Staff at a Miramar restaurant say Pitt ate there with three other people around 6.30pm last night.

A worker said the manager didn't immediately recognise Pitt, the star of films including Inglourious Basterds and Fight Club, who was wearing a cap.

"But once he looked he realised it was a Hollywood star,'' he said.

Rumours on Twitter have suggested Pitt dined with Kiwi director Sir Peter Jackson.

However staff at the restaurant said that was not the case.
