Busy but not bad

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.

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

I visited here last night, with a friend - approximately 6.30pm. One waitress/waiter each side of the restaurant. 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

I've visited this zizzi's on many occasions and can say I've always been satisfied with the quality of the food and the level of service . The pizzas are excellent and served hot and fresh in no time at all . I'd say it's the best pizza in town and certainly the best Italian chain restaurant by far . There... More

Visit this Zizzi for special occasions or as a treat every couple of months or so and always have a fantastic meal. The food is always tasty and served promptly in a friendly manner. Could not fault the service or meal at all again. Love eating here and we will return.

Spent the day in Leicester, popped in for a leisurely lunch. Great Zizzi menu and the food didn't disappoint. The service was however somewhat lacking and it was slow throughout from start to finish. The waitress was polite but the staff seemed overly stretched meaning you had to overtly try and gain somebody's attention. Good food let down by slow... More
