My husband I deceided to go for lunch here, we had the cheese fondu starter which was amazing, and the rest of the food was nice but you could tell the pasta wasn't homemade, just bought bulk. But to be fair the meal was good, the service was good, and the atmosphere was good. We enjoyed and would go again.

We were looking for some place to eat and ended up at Zizzi's. Food was ok (2 salads & risotto), drinks too. I think better service (waitress seemed to be quite new to what she was doing) would definitely improve the experience.

Never have I been so disappointed with such poor service by our waitress Gabby and then a manager telling us how the food should taste. We have been to this restaurant a hundred times but never received such awful service. Starters were fine no complaints. Mains a total disaster we ordered the meze o meze asked for extra green chillies... More

Dined here recently with a group of friends. The food was okay, but nothing to write home about. Some members of the group had pizzas which arrived whole but with no pizza slicers which had to be asked for. The staff were reasonably friendly though our waitress was a bit scruffy in appearance and wore jeans under her apron instead... More

What a fantastic restaurant. It was a busy Friday night in Leicester and the maitre d' Ben was more than happy to fit in our family of four without a booking. We were seated in a lounge area to wait and even though the wait was longer than the promised 15 minutes we were not concerned. In a very happy... More

I visited here with my son and his girlfriend. It's lively and modern. Our waiter was Canadian and very attentive and friendly. We had a sharing platter to start. It was delicious. Our mains arrived quickly. I wasn't impressed with my pasta. It had red pesto and crème fraîche in it. I felt it didn't mix well. My son had... More

on one of the rare occasions my wife and i get to go out we took a chance. we'd been here once before and found it noisy and nothing special, but not wanting to make a judgement on a one off and having a wedding anniversary voucher, we thought we'd give it another chance. Never again. There is nothing wrong... More

Not been to Zizzia for a long time - kind of thought of it as a bit of a joke after seeing Phone Shop! Got a voucher for free prosecco so gave it a go. REally surprised - such lovely food and a great service. Also really good value for money - give it a go!
