We had a pleasant meal on a warm evening at Zizzis. The menu is very good and suits all. We had a stater to share between 3 of us which was plenty. I then had the Calzone which was great. My family also enjoyed their meals. The waiter was efficient and friendly despite it being only his second shift. The... More

The food was lovely. I wasn't overly keen on the garlic bread but overall it was a nice meal. Quite a spacious restaurant so you don't feel like you're invading on anyone else's meal. Quick service and friendly staff!

For the first time Friday evening, I dropped in at Zizza for dinner. Overall, disappointing. The King Prawns starter was OK. The Calzone Spinaci had little substance ... some cheese, some chicken and ... heaven forbid ... dried-out ham on top. The Nero D'Avola must have been @ room temperature ... around 24 degrees ... not enjoyable at all. I... More

I have been here twice already and food is really good. I recommend Arancini as a starter, so tasty! Good atmosphere and design, staff is very friendly and helpful. If you want to try tasty Italian food this place is the best choice:)

The quality of the food was really good. The rustica pizza was huge so great value for money and great toppings. The lasagne was delicious and loved the crumb topping, the only downside about the lasagne is that there wasn't a lot of depth to it. We had the tuscan potatoes as a side which I felt for the price... More

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - YES Clustered around the entrance to the Highcross shopping centre (Shires Lane, Freeschool Lane and Bath-House Lane) are 12 or 13 restaurants. Of the 5/6 grouped about the point where Shires Lane turns into Bath House Lane, this was the busiest after the heavens opened a fine but constant drizzle. I didn’t realise till many days later...

Our adventure stopped at Zizzi in Leicester Highcross. I decided to use Tesco vouchers to pay for food. I had the new addition baked sea bass and my professional chef friend had beef rib. The rib was a bit disappointing because the salad was too much and not too tasty. My sea bass was good but the salad has very... More

My sister and I popped in on a Saturday lunchtime and had no problem getting a table. We had the soul bread and olives and dip for a starter, then we had a Zizzi sharing platter, was really lovely washed down with a nice glass of white wine before a trip to the curve theatre to see Sister Act matinee....

This may be a chain restaurant but don't be put off by that. It is a very sociable & comfortable environment with good food & lovely staff at reasonable prices.

Not a place we visit very often but felt like a change. Greeted promptly by a rather un-happy sounding and sullen looking lady and shown to our table. We hadn't even sat down before being asked for a drinks order. I really dislike this and will ALWAYS send the waiter/waitress away until I've had a chance to look at the... More

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.Zizzi in Highcross is our second restaurant to open in Leicester. Just a mile from the nearest transport link our Highcross restaurant is situated in a prime location. Zizzi is ideal for shoppers or if you are here to enjoy a good film at the new cinema, why not drop in for a bite to eat afterwards?
