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.One of our own waitresses, Nadia Taylor, decorated the restaurant walls with her inspiration of Italian 'glamour and sophistication', which we felt summed up the restaurant pretty nicely! A small and intimate restaurant on the edge of Finchley - it is popular both within the local community and also much further afield - with some of our regulars travelling over 15 miles to visit us! Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

“Lively restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Celebrated a birthday mid-week with a group of eight and had excellent service. The 3 course £19.99 menu had enormous portions of tasty pasta, chicken, fish and pizza selections. Everyone was delighted and would return. Something to suit all tastes.

“good food but not service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went on a Monday night for my wife's birthday. I knew I wouldn't have to book but did so anyway, just to say it was her birthday. They said we'd have a nice table and extra special service. When we got there, there was one waiter and nothing clicked when I gave him the name. We were told to sit wherever we liked. Told him I had a tastecard and he said that was fine. Service was average.

Food was good as always so can't fault that.

At the end of the meal, he gave me the bill. I held up my tastecard and he said "oh, you have a tastecard"! This was the same guy who saw it when I sat down!

Didn't bother making a point of it - just find it strange that they say one thing on the phone and when you arrive, it's as if you're somebody totally different!

“Busy !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Ok food, but staff so busy that you feel like they havent got time.
Waited for the bill long time and when we walked up to counter to pay, the waiter said he had no time to take payment now !
