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.Our restaurant is located on Grey Street, in the heart of Newcastle city centre and only 1 minute from the nearest tube. This puts you in easy reach of hotels, bars and entertainment. The Theatre Royal is just a 2 minute walk from the restaurant, and you can explore the new Quayside Bars close by. The restaurant itself has a warm, rustic and relaxing feel - it's our customers and staff who add the buzz! We cater for all types of occasion; larger groups can party downstairs in front of the open kitchen, while smaller groups of friends, couples and families have the option to relax up on the mezzanine level or by the window, watching the world go by.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

“Gorgeous 'guilt free' food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I went to Zizzi's last night with my boyfriend and Dad. I always get the Clarissa Calzone - can't go wrong with it - it's so good.
It was very busy, it usually is in the evenings on Grey St.
Our waiter was friendly but seemed very rushed - my only criticism is they could have had more staff on to help each other out.
The value for money is pretty good - if you have a smart phone you should download 'voucher cloud' - I had a 25% off voucher on it.

Good meal on a busy Saturday night, service could have been better but didn't spoil the evening. Great menu choice

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Had a lovely meal in Zizzi Newcastle last week, food was beautiful and they have options of skinny pizza for people who are watching the calories but was lovely and didn't taste like a diet meal option.

Would happily go again the restaurant has a lovely feel to it, you don't feel like you are in a chain restaurant at all and the staff were good as well
