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.Right in the heart of London’s dazzling West End, our Victoria restaurant is a favourite among the 9 to 5ers and theatre goers alike. With the likes of Billy Elliot, Wicked and Victoria Station less than a 5 minute walk away, we’re in good company. Inside the restaurant, you’ll find nods to one of London’s busiest train stations: Victoria. Whether you’re arriving in London or just in between trains, stop by and take a load off. After all, travel can be terribly stressful.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

Good food but pricey

Had a lovely lunch here mid week. Place was buzzing as usual. We had to wait a while to receive our drinks order, but our main course salads arrived immediately, even a wee bit too fast! Our salads were fantastic, but pricey, as was the wine.

This was our first visit to this restaurant; not a place to go if you're in a hurry but the food when served was excellent and very tasty. The chairs are very uncomfortable for long sittings, perhaps they could consider cushions.

We went to visit Zizzis today at 16:00, it was completely empty, yet the service was super slow. The waitress did not understand much of the order and was not very friendly either. After ordering we waited 45 minutes for the starter to arrive. One would think that garlic bread would take less time to prepare. After waiting this long... More

Convenient to Westminster & Victoria Station... good spot to grab a quick Italian meal with our children. Really thoughtful Children's menu (get to choose from set courses... pasta or pizza, choice of sauces/vegs or toppings, and choice of desserts). Had the spaghetti carbonara myself and it was decent. Fast service out of the kitchen, which is always appreciated on vacation... More

Food is good (not spectacular) but tasty enough. The service is friendly and efficient, apart from difficultly in getting seated at first even though there were s few free tables. It was incredibly busy at 6pm on a Friday but then emptied out a bit by 7.30. I guess lots of people go there after work. The pizzas were fine... More

I have been to a few Zizzi restaurants around London. This is the least appealing of them. It is in a modern complex and lacks character. The bar looks like a stock room with endless bottles of the same wine. The seating if you are seated next to the wall resembles canteen benches, too small and uncomfortable. I always liked... More

Zizzi's is always good value and the service is good. Can be noisy but the food is excellent. Wine as always is expensive.

This is located very close to Victoria Station so ideally suited for a South East commute. We were served quickly and efficiently. Food was great, plentiful and good value. Be sure at busy times to avoid queuing. There were about 10 people waiting when we left.

If you have had the misfortune to read any of my other reviews you may notice a trend for GF food. As it is difficult to get a GF pizza that does not taste like a bit of cardboard this place is the exception. Great fix. I gust wish I had had time to try their GF pasta as that... More

My poor palate! the worse pizza ever eaten in the UK, maybe the typical "english" pizza..bad quality ingredients, dry and hard pasta, bolognese sauce with water inside..really bad taste, a waste of money and time. service was quite good and quick. 20£ for one pizza and 1 small bottle of water..guys, if you want to eat the real Italian pizza,...

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
