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

Been to various Zizzi's on numerous occasions and previous experiences have been a little mixed. Lunch today was fabulous with top notch service and very good pasta. It makes such a difference when you are greeted with smiles and an individual who wants to ensure you have a good time. I'm sure it makes the food taste better !!

Visited Zizzi Highcross Leicester with a work colleague. The meal was lovely and we had really great service (think the lady was called Iveta). Nothing was too much trouble. I'll certainly be going again.

The venue is really nice and has a lively atmosphere, the food is also really good, the service needs improvement, it not that there is anything wrong with any particular staff member, I just think it lacks leadership, the services is very inconsistent. Far too slow for the drinks order, then the food arrived in a flash.. I would generally... More

I've been here a few times and the restaurant never fails to disappoint. Orders were taken quickly and food arrived quickly and very hot/fresh. Meals are good sized portions and were delicious. Would recommend booking a table on certain days and the restaurant can get quite busy.

Went there for lunch, restaurant was quite busy compared to the other restaurants around highcross so this was a good sign for us. The service was fairly good, ordered some bruschetta and risotto balls for starters they were nice, for mains we had a fish dish and a seafood linguine these were okay too. The only thing I would have... More

This was my first time in a Zizzi and it will be my last. Never before have I had a waitress/waiter raise their eyes at me so much when asking for a table, a children's menu or the bill! The customer service was shoddy to say the least and as the title says, we were made to feel as if... 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?
