Firstly, this is a well presented restaurant in nice surroundings. Unfortunately the food did not match the surroundings. We had to send a glass of prosecco back as it was flat and warm - whilst it was replaced from a fresh bottle it should not have been served in the first place. Food portions were small and barely lukewarm. All... More

Arrived at the restaurant at 20:30, was fairly busy but not full. As there was only 2 of us, I would have thought the food would arrive fairly quick, however, after 35 mins We were still waiting for our olives. Another 10 mins past and the starter finally arrived, unfortunately half was missing. No cheese, figs or chorizo. This was... More

We were shown to our table and after 15 minutes our drinks orders were taken. another 10 minutes elapsed before our food order was taken. When the starters arrived there was one missing and it took almost 5 minutes for everyone to get their starter. The... More

My girlfriend and I had a 3 course meal offer plus drinks which gave excellent value. The portions are very generous, I forced my dessert as I was so full but it's too good to waste! The food was excellent with the exception of my 'bruschetta' starter which appeared to actually be a piece of baguette, it was very chewy.... More

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening a couple of weeks ago. On entering the tight doorway we stood for 15mins waiting for a member of staff to acknowledge us. There was a number of empty tables and people leaving the restaurant during our wait. Eventually someone did approach us and ask if we had a booking, we said... More

Currently sat in the restaurant, have been here for 2 hours and have still not been served our main course. Asking the waitress, apparently all the orders have backed up and yet two tables have come in, eaten, paid and left. Not only this but one of the party has a baby and the baby's food was almost two hours... More

Couldn't resist the 3 courses and a glass of wine for £15. Good choice of dishes on the special menu. Food was fresh and tasty. We were served by a very friendly server called Kat. Overall a very positive experience :)

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.Smack dab in the heart of Leeds’ city centre leisure complex, one of our newer Zizzis stands ready to greet you. Our designers pulled inspiration from the city’s strong roots in the textile and wool industry. There are colourful Knitted wool stools that have been inspired by the city where the material originated. \we’ve even had a bespoke textile designed by Luke Trybula which forms the upholstery of the central seating feature. It’s certainly a restaurant that turns heads.
