Having enjoyed Zizzi food before we decided to eat here whilst in London. Even for a Wednesday evening it was very busy. On arrival we had to wait a few minutes whilst staff scuttled back and forth before we were greeted and seated (we had booked a table). Once seated we were asked if we'd like some water and that...

Visited this branch with a friend in one of the afternoons last week. It was a disappointing experience. I love Zizzi and its food, but this time my experience was not as great. First of all, my friend and I had to wait a long long while just to order drinks. We have been seated, but then forgotten. It was... More

We have been here so many times as a couple, with family and with friends and it never disappoints. Every dish is mouthwatering and delicious, value for money and always superbly done. What really makes this place stand out from the crowd though is their amazing staff. Nothing is ever too much trouble, no matter how busy it gets. Good... More

It was OK but there MUST be better Italian restaurants in London. Expensive for what we got and rather bland. The view is good though.

My daughter had been to Zizzi before and told us all how good it was so we were keen to try it ourselves, and we weren't disappointed. We hadn't booked a table and it was quite busy even early on Friday evening but they managed to find a table for 5 for us. The waitress was really good, didn't write... More

This visit was by chance as the hotel had no staff on in their kitchen... but what a chance this was! Best Italian food I've eaten in a long time. When the plates came I didn't think much of the portion sizes but actually the portions were just enough for me (eyes bigger than the belly thing!) and it was... 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.Just a short walk from the famous Globe Theatre, our Bankside restaurant offers a nice rest for the weary London sightseers and stunning river views while you dine. The illustrations decorating the walls throughout the restaurant were inspired by the surrounding area - a hub of urban skateboard culture that involves spirit, music and fashion, illustrated by the artist Matthew Brooks. Look out for loads of other interesting details including skateboard decks, modern art and vespa scooters.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
