Description: 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.Located at the top of the old part of town, this spacious restaurant provides a soothing respite from the outside world and busy shopping centre. Enjoy a bird's eye view of chefs cooking in the kitchen or choose the function room which is ideal for parties and business meetings. The restaurants features nods to the market town and the shepherds who kept Basingstoke going back in the day. And if you’re celebrating big, see if our private dining area is right for you.

Went on a Monday night so the restaurant was very quiet. Waitress helpful and attentive but not obtrusive. Only tried the place as we had a 25% off voucher (Yes, I know, cheapskates). Food arrived quickly and was tasty but I'm not sure I would've paid full price as it wasn't cheap. I have to echo another reviewers comment on... More

This is probably my 5th visit over the last 3 years and every time the food has been tasty and well presented, the staff are attentive whilst not obtrusive and the general atmosphere is very good. There was a Hen party arriving as we were finishing our meal so I imagine the evening was about to liven up!. Recommended

Visited this week as a group of six and left feeling that Zizzi, or at least this branch, is going downhill. We thought when our waitress took our orders she didn't quite understand, and when the starters arrived one of them was wrong (plain garlic bread instead of garlic bread with cheese). A Simple enough mistake but more was to... More

I like the choice of 'healthy meals'. Good food but a little bit overpriced. Same with drinks - prices bit high. One more thing - your waitress could be better trained... I understand hiring foreigners but they still should have basic customer service knowledge...

I visited zizzis for lunch today, and i must say- I left wholly satisfied. Whilst the service was unintrusive and fairly pleasant, it is pretty mediocre and pretty much what you expect from any branded chain restaurant. The food is without any shadow of a doubt, the shining glory for this place. It is fresh, tasty and in my opinion,... More

This was my birthday lunch out and we had not been to Zizzi for over a year, so it was time to get reacquainted. We decided on the sharing Big Fritto platter to start with, a small one might have been enough. It had a light batter which was not greasy with a tangy mayonnaise. My wife had a Bistecca... More

Was looking forward to a lovely lunch here with my kids but the service was brusque and lacklustre. It wasn't busy but the staff congregated at the back of the restaurant rather than seeing if any of their customers needed anything. The childrens pasta had just been slopped onto the plate...it looked messy and unappetising. Clearly both kitchen and front... More
