A culinary safari at Zizzi's.

Three of us popped in for an evening meal on Tuesday. We were met and shown to our table of choice with friendly warmth. There is an open airiness to the decor, which is welcoming with intimate lighting. We kicked off with our starters: one calamari and two misto frittos; all three were well... read more

Although this is a chain restaurant the food is very good and well presented. Good choice of soft drinks but a bit on the expensive side. Very good pasta dishes and all a bit different. Worth a visit.

I haven't visited the Loughton branch of this restaurant for some time and was pleasantly surprised and shall definately be returning soon!! We took our two small children to Zizi's for dinner after nursery one evening (about 5pm) - the staff were very welcoming to the children and didn't mind at all when our youngest tipped her drink all over...

Local chain eatery nice staff well presented food. Kids runaround a lot! Probably gets really busy at peak times. The black horse full size was a little strange!

Zizzi's is a chain restaurant and has a varied menu so plenty of choice. The portion size is good without being too huge but still value for money. The food I would say is always cooked well, tasty, seasoning is on the ball, and presentation is good. However, the service could do with a bit of a talking too... from... More

First visit for lunch Service was good and food was hot and fresh cooked well as you would expect but very good for a chain of restaurants. Many family groups but did not intrude on our space . Good to have a selection on a varied menu Will definitely return

On a recent trip to this Zizzi which has been progressively going downhill for a while reached a new low and we will not return. Starters, Bruschetta was passable, Calamari was greasy and fatty. The kids had garlic bread with this awful sticky brown sauce on which they couldn't eat. Mains, my eldest had what she always has, Strozzapreti, but... More
