We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food.Situated on the busy high street, our restaurant in South Woodford wows customers with an open kitchen and impressive pizza throwing chefs. The local team know the area and have created a very personal, friendly atmosphere. Ideal for lunch or dinner and situated centrally next to the cinema.

“Second Chance For Zizi South Woodford”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

It has been over a year since I've dined at Zizi South Woodford. After a less than mediocre experience, my husband and I decided to give it another chance. The service was friendly and efficient and the environment clean and welcoming. The food was what you would expect from a chain pizza restaurant, painting by numbers. My husband ordered a chicken pizza, but we had to search for the minimal pieces of chicken. Both pizzas were laden with cheese and not much else. After a second chance, we've decided not to go back there again.

“Utter Disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

The waiter forgot to tell us that four items on the menu were no longer available untill he returned after 10 minutes to order. It then took a further 40 minutes for the food to arrive, the waiter justified this as he claimed the bass ordered took a while to cook (which was promptly sent back as it was soaked in lemon and indelible). The rest of the food was ok, but waiting staff appeared to be in a coma, thee were only two other tables when we arrived thus delay not justified.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Convenient place for us to pop for a quick bite to eat on the way back from the train station after work but we went once and have not been again since.

Better alternatives locally, the staff couldn't speak particularly good English and a strange 'vibe' about the place. i.e. the car park is always full of Land Rovers, BMW's, Porsches .etc when the food is average at best.

Surreal

“Delicious calamari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Zizzi South Woodford is a great place to visit for afternoon lunch with friends or for a lovely meal with your partner over a bottle of prosecco. The menu offers a good selection with reasonable prices, the service is polite and the food is just lovely. The calamari is wonderful and so is the 'Linguine ai Gamberi' and 'Sofia' pizza.
