Arrived at the restaurant, ordered drinks, asked for the gluten free kids menu to which I was told they had 'run out of gf pasta and pizza base! So 1) either they are incompetent at stock and...

In the past we have had some lovely meals at Zizzis in Leicester. It has gone down hill on almost every occasion of late and last night was the worst meal of all. We had the bread board - what an insult this is now, it used to be fresh and varied breads but now is rubbish with some dry... More

Slightly chaotic visit with a tray of drinks dropped on the adjacent table, staff seeming rushed and a meagre starter...main courses were good and the ubiquitous 25% off voucher made the price reasonable

I was here with family and ordered the Carbonara which came dry and luke warm. I spoke to the waitress who took it away before replacing it with a much better looking plate. Unfortunately it was still pretty cold so I left most of it. I did't want to spoil the meal by complaining again so called afterwards and mentioned... More

The food is delicious, staff is very friendly and I love how cozy it is :) p.s.: Pizza picante is a bit to spicy, had to wipe out the tears literally :D

I visitied this very well presented restaurant with my twin daughters on a very hot Saturday afternoon. We were seated quickly and my 3 year olds equipped with colors and an activity sheet allowing me 5 mins to think about what to order. Service was very fast and efficient much better than some of the competition in the city center.... More

Took an age to be seated, even longer for the menus to arrive at the table and after waiting fifteen minutes for someone to come and take our order, we put our coats back on and left. I'm not sure the waitress even noticed we'd gone. Went across the road to Carluccio's and were treated wonderfully. Guess which waitress got... More

Never been as it has always been too busy. I can see why now. The food is cooked fresh (you can taste it), drinks are served cold (great). The server we had was attentative to our needs & the price is not bad. I will try & come again (if not too busy).
