We went on a sunny weekday evening with a party of ten. Service was efficient and friendly without feeling rushed even though they were very busy. Good variety of food for meat and non meat eaters. Garlic prawns were nice, pizzas are huge so watch out!!

It's on a good location with lots of parking nearby. The service was good and our waitress was friendly. My food was fine (I had the calzone). The problem we had was with my wife's food. She ordered the Gluten free pizza with Pesto sauce, Mozarella, red onion, butternut squash, spinach, pine nuts, Goats cheese and rosemary. It came out... More

working in a pizza restaurant myself, I can honestly say this restaurant is very nice, food was spot on- nice range of sides/sauces e.g. olive oil/garlic/chilli oil. Pizza was different but very nice- staff had such a friendly and approachable manner. congrats zizzi leicester

The menu is Italian and rustic and I have enjoyed all the dishes I have sampled. I have had issues with the cutlery not being completely clean, but the staff sorted that quickly. Its in a... More

Boyfriend took me to zizzi's after buying a package from buyagift.com and sadly he wasted his money. The package meant that we had a set menu the starter was nice but cold, the main course was very limited and I had settled for a calzone which was the worst possible decision i left nearly the whole thing and only ate...

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!

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?
