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!

I visited this restaurant with my two girls during the recent half term holidays as there was a great offer going on- 25% off the whole meal (not including drinks)! I had walked past this restaurant on several occasions recently when visiting High Cross in Leicester and was curious about the interiors. When I did eventually walk in recently I... More

First time in this restaurant and not overly impressed, there special meal today was plump Scottish mussels with spaghetti, they were far from plump, I've had better from the co-op. I'm not in any hurry to go back anytime soon.

We visited on a Monday evening when we received 50% off each main meal, which made it good value for money, but I'm not sure it is worth the full price. However, I would mention that the service was extremely slow.

Imaginative menu, well cooked and presented and, with a 25% food discount voucher, excellent value for money! Pizzas and pastas first rate; excellent risotto.

Zizzi's is a great place, the service is always prompt, and with a smile. All their dishes are great, in particular their pasta's and pizzas are fantabulous. I also found out that they menu has been revamped in early April. I wanted to try their new Salmon and Brocolli dish, but it was sold out, the waitress informed me that... More
