The restaurant smelt really bad as if there was a problem with the drains. Service was slow and poor, only after we'd ordered food did they tell us that the card machine wasn't working so we'd need to go across the road and get cash....More

Had booked a table for four for lunch on a busy Saturday in Oxford. Got to the restaurant at 1pm as booked, only to be told that the oven wasn't working, so pizzas (what we were going for) were off the menu. It happens, but...More

In the past we have had decent meals at this Zizzi, however our latest visit was dull. The food was bland and under seasoned, when we were served our mains we had to wait 5 minutes for the sides to come to our table. When...More

Have eaten a few times at this Zizzi and each time has been great! The food is always of top quality and haven't been able to fault the service. Would always keep returning!

Honestly I can't even say what the food was like. My family and I were hungry, and Franco manca down the street was too busy so we decided to try every restaurant we came across. Upon entering "zizzi" we were met with the faint scent...More

The food was nice and the service was friendly. However it took ages for our food to arrive (not ideal with young children) and even getting water or Parmesan to go on pasta seemed to take a while. I think the staff were doing their...More

At Zizzi we like to do things a little differently. We don’t do over-complicated recipes or scrimpy portion sizes. We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food.Located on busy George Street, Zizzi Oxford is close to the bus and railway stations in the centre of town and in the heart of the theatre and cinema district. The restaurant itself is heavily influenced by local legend C.S. Lewis, writer of one of the most popular books of all time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Silver birch trees referencing the forest scenes from the book and lighting features alluding to the snow drops in Narnia welcome diners. So, whether it's for a business meeting, a family get-together, a party or a romantic meal, the team at Zizzi in Oxford looks forward to your visit. And if you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.
