Lovely staff, grubby venue

We had quite a mixed experience when we called in for lunch recently. The staff were good - pleasant, friendly, attentive etc. The food was as expected. What let the visit down was how dirty the surroundings were and the lack of on-going cleaning. My lap was covered in crumbs soon after I'd sat... read more

Love zizzis and can quite often get a voucher if you look online which is a bonus. Recently added some lovely drinks to the menu both soft and alcoholic. Food is always great and puddings are delicious! Highly recommended.

My auntie recently had an operation due to throat cancer that means she can't eat anything lumpy and with bits in it as she might choke. A simple request whilst visiting was if they could sieve or blend the soup and possibly mash some of the Tuscan potatoes up. Apparently this was too difficult. Fortunately cafe rouge across the way... More

We have been many times over the years, and tonight went again and got great values as we had received a voucher for 3 courses at £15. The staff where great and the food was very good, I would recommend this restaurant. I was a bit disappointed that a bottle of peroni cost £6.55, way too much even for this... More

been to zizzis three times in the past few years and each time its gotten worse and worse. Talking about my most recent visit, I went with a friend at around 5 a clock and the service was absolutely dreadful. It took way over one hour and a half for my starter to be served. This is not a exaggeration.... More

Ate here on Boxing day with six of us. On arrival my wife started coughing and the staff offered to make her a Hot Lemon drink to help, and were generally very attentive throughout the evening. I got a birthday freebie and we all had nice meals, quickly served and enjoyed the overall experience. Given the menu is the same... More

Usually find Zizzis good food and value but on this bank holiday visit found the service and food very poor. Non attentive staff who forgot my young sons starter and main meal, and then being questioned by a different waiter that we only ordered 3 meals! No apology that they forgot either. When the main meal arrived pizzas were cold... More
