I visited Zizzi on Saturday for lunch with two friends and our initial experience in terms of service was very poor. We were seated quickly however 3 members of staff then tried to take our drinks order showing little shift coordination. We were then bought drinks that were meant for another table! We ordered our food and it arrived quickly;... More

Arrived here about 5:30pm on a Saturday, restaurant heaving but sat down at table straight away. Service was super fast and efficient! Ordered drinks, came in no time. We ordered a starter to share and two pasta dishes. Came out so quick! Always checked up on by waiter which was so lovely. Food was tasty and filling! Had the penne... More

This was the first time that I had been to Zizzi's in a family group and I will certainly return. We had not booked but that was no problem as it was early lunchtime on a Wednesday. You need to ask for a separate menu for gluten free and the choice was great with gluten free pasta and pizza bases.... More

Kids cutlery, carrots and cucumber. Colouring sheets with crayons. Great when you have a 3 and 4 year old. Also great pizza if you are concerned about your children's nutrition. If they are going to eat pizza at least make it a good one.

I ate here with my mum in October and despite being in a rush to go to the cinema, the food order was taken quickly and arrived quickly. This is the standard service for this Zizzi and we were very happy. Staff have always been friendly and helpful. Would recommend booking a table (especially at the weekend or on a... More

I probably dine at Zizzi in the Highcross the most out of the good options as it always delivers very good food every time. Came here in between Christmas and New Year and had 2 supurb pizzas. My favourite being the, 'WINTER SPECIAL: MONTEPULCIANO SALAMI RUSTICA PIZZA'. Great house red and great service as always. Looking forward to coming back... More

After a disastrous first visit we complained using the link you will see on the receipt and received £90 worth of vouchers in order to give them a second try. It pays to complain f you don't get the full customer experience! We returned last weekend and had a great experience, the staff couldn't do enough for us this time... More

Popped in unplanned for a mid-afternooon snack. Staff are friendly, accommodating and helpful. Food itself was good – tasty, well presented and large portions. The restaurant is a decent size – cosy without being on top of the surrounding tables. One to look out for...

The restaurant is near the Highcross shopping centre, so ideally located. Walked in for dinner without booking - which was not a problem. Service was appalling and very slow. We sat for 25 mins and had to ask for our order to be taken. People sat after us were being served before us. I know they were perhaps allocated different... More

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?
