Nicely done

Enjoyed the food, nice generous starters and mains. A busy Friday night so the waiter had his hands full so fully understood and relaxed with a drink or two. Spent a couple of hours here and did end up chasing the bill but not put off at all. Nice time had by all and would happily return.

I have been at Zizzi, at the Brighton Branch, last Thursday to celebrate my Birthday, and as usual I had a great experience. The Service is just exceptional: welcoming, warm and attentive. I had a Skinny Primavera Pizza without dairy food, and it tasted delicious. I know I can't go wrong eating a Pizza a Zizzi. Best ingredients and best... More

We visited during the bank holiday weekend so it was extremely busy. Staff we very friendly, very polite & extremely helpful even though the restaurant was full. They very kindly advised us of a 20 minute wait and they saved a table for us. Our overall experience of Zizzi was 10 out of 10. Considering it was just so busy,... More

So many restaurants to choose from in the Lanes but so glad we chose Zizzi, a chain of restaurants which my family are big fans of. Usual delicious food was served whilst sitting in the heart of the hustle & bustle of this popular area. We consider Zizzi prices high, but when offers are available thats where we head. Staff...

The wife and I had a very enjoyable pre theatre meal here last Sunday. We booked a specific table but unfortunately another couple were still finishing their meal when we arrived. Staff were very friendly and after we'd had a glass of wine our table was ready. Service was good, food excellent and we were done and dusted in good... More

We don't have a Zizzi in Plymouth, so this was our first time. Myself, husband and six year old daughter. My daughter had the child's menu which was £6.95 for 3 course meal which included a chocochino (child's small hot chocolate). She loved it and ate it all. We both had pasta dishes. We substituted a sauce for pesto on... More

We have been here twice before since my son started his music degree in Brighton. Both times we had excellent food and service and were really happy. This time it was very disappointing. The table we were given meant we had waitresses constantly squeezing past us to get to the bar and also parents with young children squeezing by to... More

I used my O2 priority discount here. I was heading to a well known pizza place in the same road however I'm glad I came here. Generous toppings on the pizza and excellent friendly service from the waiter Mike. My wife also enjoyed her gluten free pasta. I'll definitely come back here again.

I haven't been to a Zizzi for a few years but I remember them always being good for gluten-free, so knew they could only be better now. We were seated quickly and service was very efficient. I used the allergen guide to decide what I would like, and they do gluten-free pasta and pizza which is great. I opted for... More
