Visited the Zizzi adjacent to John Lewis after trying our luck at a table for six at the newly opened ChimiChanga but they were booked up! Starters came quickly as did drinks, waitress was very attentive to us all which makes a nice change. Our starter plates were dirty, out of six plates, three were returned as they had quite... More

We decided to have a day out in Leicester and and round it off with a meal a Zizzi's as we had eaten there previously and had an enjoyable experience. Although the added factor of having a gift card as a recent Birthday present and a percentage discount voucher against the cost of food did sway our choice slightly. Anyway... More

Very very busy restaurant! Could do with a better waiting area, as it currently stands it's next to a 2 way door - which often gets opened into your back! Service was great. Food was lovely. Ideal location. Nice decor. Not somewhere to go (at least on a Saturday) if you want a quiet lunch though.

Basically shoved to our table - took ages for her to come back and ask if we wanted drinks. Then when we said we would like a few minutes to decide on what we were eating we were left waiting a further... More
