Not the usual offerings you expect from Italian restaurants in English speaking countries. Broad menu offering the dishes you don't expect, reasonably priced and good service.

What can I say the food was good and the service was good. The pizza was hot, tasty and could eat one just now! Would use again.

We ate at this restaurant because we have had good service and food from other branches of this chain. Not all the staff looked smart which is a put off. The food was average and the service reasonable but I with so much competition around i would have thought that they could and should have tried harder.

So where do I begin..... Me and my partner recently had a baby (4 weeks old) so we decided to treat ourselves and go into Zizzi for some dinner. We arrived and was greeted by a male waiter who instantly made us feel very unwelcoming and started flicking through pieces of paper and saying he is checking the bookings as... More

We had a selection f salads and starters (all excellent - particularly liked the aranchini) and ordered a tiny tums meal for the baby. This was a shock - it was enormous! We got a half baguette size garlic bread and a large bowl of... More

Once again Marcin excelled himself with attentiveness and kindness to our whole party. He always remembers what we normally like to eat and drink so we feel valued and he makes each visit special. Although Zizzi is a chain restaurant, Marcin's fabulous service gives this more of a local Trattoria feel with his attention to detail and with a big... More

It was a Saturday evening when we visited and the place was buzzing, it can be very noisy which is the only reason I have not given it an excellent rating. Service was first class and given the trade level very prompt. The food was hot and the wine cold, our waitress was very busy but managed to be friendly... More

My friends and I called in for late lunch on a busy Saturday. We were shown to a table immediately and our drinks arrived promptly. I ordered the skinny primavera pizza which was very tasty and just the right portion size for me. One of my friends had the hanging chicken skewer which she enjoyed and the other had a... More
