Our first visit to a Zizzi. The food was extremely tasty. I was pretty much full with my chicken dish - POLLO PROSCIUTTO but my husband had the SPIEDINI PESCATORE - from the Summer menu and said he would have liked a bit more, he was still hungry. Our son liked his kids meal. For dessert I had the ESPRESSO... More

I went here with a group of friends (24 of us in total). As we had booked we had a room at the back of the restaurant. The staff did very well managing requests from 24 different people at the same table. The food was very good, well prepared and presented. We ate from the set menu, 2 courses for... More

Recently returned for family lunch at Zizzi after a long gap since last visit. Pleased with the service and the meals. A bonus here is the protected courtyard area for outdoor dining if preferred. Expect to be return soon.

Our party of 7 was welcomed and seated immediately, our waitress was friendly, helpful and very efficient. She took our order straight away and the food was delivered to our table quickly, well presented and hot. She was always aware when serving other tables and ready to cater to our needs. The food was very good - as always at... More

I visited this branch in Loughton recently against my better judgement having been previously less than impressed with Italian restaurants in this country – I could have predicted how formulaic and boring the food was, nothing to get excited about, overpriced and bland. The best bit was the bread and chilli olive antipasti with wine, the rest of the menu... More

Went for lunch on Saturday with the family. The restaurant was not too busy, and service was prompt. There was a thoughtful helping of breadsticks for our 2 year old grandson, arriving quickly. The food was good generally, but the "new dish" chicken on focaccia which I had was disappointing. The chicken was quite skimpy and the dressing was strong... More

I am no longer a Zizzi virgin! Would I go back for more.....? What I ate - basically a butternut squash & lentil based green salad with goats cheese and additional chicken skewers - was actually pretty tasty, although I do agree with a previous reviewer regarding Zizzi's definition of what constitutes "chicken". I can't say that I didn't enjoy... More
