Having eaten at the Zizi at the Marina 12 months ago - I was determined to eat there again as I wanted to sample the sweet I had last time, which was divine!! 3 of us ate. Two of us had starters - the calamari and the cheese dip. Both very nice. The pizzas for main course were huge!! I'm... More

We arrived for lunch and in a very busy restaurant we were lucky to be seated. The calamari to share was lovely. Followed by Light Primerva Pizza with Goats’ cheese, roasted aubergine, artichokes, peppers, slow roasted tomatoes & olives with a side salad. My husband had casareccia pollo picante, Spicy piccante chicken in a creamy sauce with fresh tomato &... More

Went on a Saturday evening when Brighton was packed. Had to wait half an hour for a table(so went round the corner for a pint while waiting). Zizzi are normally a cut above the rest of the Pizza places and this was no exception. Have just got permission to expand and improve the bar area (Zizzi as a chain having... More

My experience of this Zizzi started off great but got progressively worse until I was glad to get away. I wanted two things: hot Italian food on a wintry Friday evening before going out: and "The Cloud" WiFi. I had to plug in my laptop and the staff showed me to a table with a PowerPoint - but the waiter... More

We would never step foot back in to a Zizi's again. Service was appalling took 25 mins for our drinks come come, the sharing starter was cold, the mains were over priced tasteless and cold, we then had puddings at £5.50 a pop which consisted of one scoop of sorbet. We had ordered coffee which never came!!! Had to keep... More
