If your after a nice slice of bread this is the place, lovely selection of Italian breads to start but pretty much from that point on it was downhill, My partner had a risotto closer in consistency to soup than rice, can also confirm tasted nasty. I myself ordered the chicken skewers (marinated in olive oil and herbs apparently) tasted... More

If you like bread then this is the place for you but for anything more complicated forget it. My partner had a risotto more similar in consistency to soup than rice and the chicken dish I had (supposedly marinated in herbs and olive oil) was like chewing an old boot, All in all a lovely place if your a duck.

Visited with my two grandchildren recently early on a Friday evening. We purposely booked early as the children are aged 3 and 1. Welcome was ok, drinks ordered and delivered quite quickly. Kids were a little active (not totally surprising given the rather pointless large horse). One member of staff in particular (I think the manager) moved around at 100... More

I went here for a meal with my friends for Xmas and won't be returning it was quite quiet but we were in there for 3 hours because of the slow service; it took 20 minutes to get our drinks. The toilets were all unusable blocked with poo in and around. We all tried 3 different starters and mains and... More

Had a very pleasant time at Zizzi's from the moment I called to book a table. The man I spoke to was very helpful and advised that there were a couple of large Christmas party bookings (30+ people) already confirmed for just before the time I wanted. This was a helpful bit of information if It was a quiet evening... More

Three of us ate here last night, our first visit but I'm sure it won't be our last. We thought the restaurant was very comfortable, light & airy. The service was very good, friendly & welcoming staff. We chose the bread basket to share, very enjoyable, my daughter had the pulled pork pizza, she only ate ahold as she said... More

We only use Zizzi when we have Tesco Club Card vouchers to redeem. Nice food. Pleasant staff. Nice that there are new additions to the menu every season. Chilli oil is superb. Plenty of space and never needed a reservation. Have only tried the pizzas so can't comment on the other dishes available. Big jugs of iced tap water always... More
