Description: At Zizzi we like to do things a little differently. We don’t do over-complicated recipes or scrimpy portion sizes. We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food.Zizzi in Highcross is our second restaurant to open in Leicester. Just a mile from the nearest transport link our Highcross restaurant is situated in a prime location. Zizzi is ideal for shoppers or if you are here to enjoy a good film at the new cinema, why not drop in for a bite to eat afterwards?

Booked this on the internet for a 6-30 table for 2 and was surprised to find we had to vacate our table by 8-15. As it turned out we were out with 30 minutes to spare! This was partly due to the lightening speed of the serving staff and the fact we had no dessert or coffee. Would have liked... More

Zizzi is a well known chain of restaurants and you pretty much know what you're getting when you go in. Food was fine, service was ok. I like the open kitchen and the contemporary look of this particular restaurant. Not flashy, but honest.

Be careful if planning to dine here as they may be having a 'soft launch' what ever that may mean. From what I can gather it means the restaurant will be empty but there are no tables available for the whole evening. Bizarre.

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
