Location and contact

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.We are situated on the famous Gandy Street, just off the main High Street and close to Exeter Central train station, making us a popular destination with shoppers and tourists. We are housed in the old City Chambers, providing a lovely open plan dining area which can be used to accommodate parties and families of all sizes. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

Chose here for a mothers day meal. Lovely food, lovely drink, friendly staff and lovely restaurant. I had pollo prosciutto which was lovely but a little lacking in sides. Daughter and mum both had pizza and both enjoyed them, generous portions.
