I went with a friend for a pre birthday meal. I got email to say what deals were on. Starter main but especially dessert was excellent. We wasn't offered the meal deal menu, so asked for it. After having a few members of staff who were ok it wasn't until Jordan started serving our table, where we felt we got... More

After going for a meal I thought I had left something at the restaurant so I rang up the following day only to have the staff tell me to wait a moment. Whilst I was waiting for them to deal with my problem I could overhear the staff members talking about me and my issue on the other end of... More

I'm sorry to say that what should have been a delightful end-of-week meal with my two children turned into a teeth-gritting 2 hour ordeal while we waited patiently for *everything*. And then endured food that was almost inedible. The drinks order took 15 minutes to be taken. Not to arrive, just to be taken. The drinks themselves took another 15... More

Good choice of food but a few things not available on the menu on the night. Pleased with choices we made and food very tasty. Mistake made with order and even though we didn't accept meal brought to table they produced what we ordered very quick and didn't charge as their mistake. Complimentary bottle of prosecco for the birthday boy.... More

Our party of 6 ordered our food at about 6 pm. The only other party in the place was already eating their main course. We waited 45 minutes for the food to arrive! No idea why it took so long and not blaming the waitress but have given service one out of five. Once the food did arrive it was... More

Haven't eaten here in some time due to a bad rep this place obtained. However, myself and my friend (both of who are ex chefs) really enjoyed the food. The service was quick, we didn't feel rushed, and a friendly face from our waitress. The quality of the food was spot on. I actually really enjoyed my meal, normally I... More

I think the menu is great.. not too long and a good choice, with a menu that seems well thought through and current. We had a special to start then I moved onto chicken and pancetta salad. It was delicious and at under 600 calories is great. I also think the decor is pretty good and the little touches like... More

Had lunch with friends here and was impressed with the food and service. The restaurant is quite spacious inside, so you don't feel "squashed in". Not the cheapest in town, but certainly worth a visit!

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.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
