I truly enjoyed my meal and my first Zizzi's experience. The menu is extensive and there is a set meal with plenty of choice. On the table clean crisp table talkers, pepper & salt grinders and small cans of chilli and extra virgin olive oil. For starter I chose the bread basket with was a variety of fresh and hot... More

Popped in for lunch a couple of months ago. Food was great and prompt. Wasn't what we ordered though. Didn't mind too much, but then we got left as they obviously closed off our section. Think we could have disappeared without anyone noticing for a good while. Shame really, could have been a lot better.

My second experience of Zizzi and it hasn't let me down. Good service, good food and nice setting! Affogato on the desert menu is worth a try :)

Went for lunch, ate from the set menu, the food was all pleasant enough but nothing special. The service was fine, the atmosphere not bad. Just overall a standard experience and not one to particularly write home about. I've visited the Zizzi in Market Harborough twice and much prefer it.

First and foremost our waitress was heaven sent. She was what makes a dining experience worth it. The food was nothing to write home about but easily overlooked unless you have come to the restaurant for food. The atmosphere was great, busy most of the time and quick turnover. The menu was ok but we opted for desserts elsewhere. I... More

My husband and I always use this restaurant when we are going to the cinema at Highcross. Always buzzy and friendly staff. Menu is good and we enjoy the food as nice choices and cooked well.

We had not booked a table, nor thought that we would have needed to, but it seems that people do like eating here. Not totally sure why as the service was awful, the waiter quite abrupt and uninterested and the food was really boring and ordinary. The table that we were shown to was too small, should have been at... More
