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.Besides our fantastic team, we think there is another very big reason to visit Zizzi Metro Centre. There is a real, living garden on the double height staircase wall which brings an unexpected and delightful piece of nature into this shopping centre environment. The lush greenery and colourful plants in this feature wall are something that need to be seen to be believed. If you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.

Where has the nice sharing platter gone!!

We were so disappointed that Metro Centre didn't have the sharing platter that we like. Apparently it's not commercially viable anymore at this branch of Zizzis.

Whenever we go to Zizzi at the Metro we always have a nice meal. All fresh food with the kitchen on show to the restaurant to watch the service. The food is very nice with fresh produce and i would recommend it to anyone. Pizza, pasta, calazones all the usual delicious italian dishes.

Me and my fiance came here last night for tea and we couldn't fault it. It took a few minutes for somebody to come over and seat us but that didn't bother us. From start to finish Dave was very accommodating and catered to our every need, very important when working with the public. Food was beautiful as it always... More

Visited this place today and personally I cannot find fault. Normally I write poor reviews however,on this occasion I feel that a good review is in order. We were quickly seated (lunch time) drinks were taken within a few minutes less than 5mins.. 10-15mins the food arrived and it was amazing. I had the pizza,followed by a dessert. The staff... More

We came here and ordered rustic pizza. It was really nice. Thin base and good amount of toppings full of flavour. This is not Pizza Hut with lots of toppings making it heavy but the right amount. I would recommend and come back again

second visit here, for lunch while shopping with my daughter. She had pizza, I had salad, and it was all absolutely worth every penny. Very busy place, but nothing too much trouble for capable & friendly staff.

Zizzis do it again. I know it's not cheap, but no one does a pizza dough as nice as Zizzis. The garlic bread with onion and mozzarella was gorgeous and a lovely sharing starter. I had a calzone and my hubby had a thin pizza. I thought his maybe a bit crisp for me. But my sample was fantastic. My... More
