“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Called in for the 3 course lunch deal. Excellent sized starters of garlic bread, light, fluffy and hot. Main course of chicken and spinach calzone was lovely, my wife had Lasagne, a little sloppy and too much tomato(for her taste), but still tasted quite nice. Desserts were chocolate melt and ice cream, the melt was a little rich, plus lemon tarte, need to serve fresh pouring cream or ice cream with this. Overall a really good value experience and I wouldn't hesitate in trying Zizzi's again. Very attentive staff.,

“Expensive and micro-portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Golden rule of restaurants - don't skimp on portion sizes. Zizzi have managed portion control to the gram, and have got it wrong. Nice food, but not worth the cost.

“Nice Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife, daughter and I ate here recently. We thought that the food was good and reasonably priced. The service was also very good - in particular, the woman manager from Latvia was very helpful and friendly.

“Mixed thoughts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Mixed feelings on our visit to yorks zizzis restuarant , our starters were great no complaints at all there,the mains were only average unfortunately,the mains menu is limited and i wanted a steak but there isnt one on the menu,much to my dissapointment, so instead i had a pizza,the base was good the topping was very rare ( as in not much of it) and dissapointing.The waiter was a misrable sod who struggled to break a smile.I will not be visiting again there are plenty of great restuarants in york who needs this one ,,,,,not me.
