The food was incredibly tasty and the service was incredibly prompt and our server was excellent. We have had good experiences here before but as it was so busy we thought the standards may slip a little... More

Went there to use some voucher we got from the internet. Even thought the place was rather full, we got a table promptly. After that we had bad luck with the waitress we got. We mentioned we had a voucher and asked her whether she needed to see it before ordering the food. She said no. We ordered the food,... More

The food was good, usual Zizzi standard. The service was a little lacking, didn't seem very organised. We moved tables because a foot was missing from one only to find the next table to be just was wonky!

We visited during busy Christmas lunch hour, we were greeted and seated quickly, and orders taken. We asked for the garlic bread without onions and the request was met without any issues, I even decided to change my order and the waitress was fine with this. The garlic bread was amazing , followed by the mains, which were freshly cooked... More

We were made to feel welcome and the service was good enough. They only had to be reminded of the coffees. One highlight was the orange juice that was excellent, tasting freshly squeezed but reasonably priced. The breads we had to start were all good and the mains were praised by all 6 of us. The bill was less than... More

Myself and my partner ordered this dish and were left feeling very disappointed. The portion size was tiny and the bisque just tasted of tinned tomatoes and herbs. The service from the floor staff was... More
