It has been quite some time since I visited Zizzi in Henley (8 years) and I have VERY fond memories of that. But this visit was NOT the same. I've had classic Italian and I've had tasty classic Italian and this is neither. Why do...More

We ate here twice when in Oxford because the food was so good but the service was definitely not great. In general it seems service in Britain isn't that great. If you need a second beer or the bill, make sure you are good at...More

Went here for a family dinner on a Wednesday night. Booked online. This is our sixth Zizzi to visit in a month so we know the drill. If this had been our first Zizzi visit, we would never return. Manager hadn't put together a table...More

As a lone diner I always look to see how good the service is. The service was good even though the place was busy. Different staff responded well to requests. Mushroom tortellini was very tasty with lots of sauce and was filling. Extra side salad...More

Visited last week ahead of a theatre trip . Service was attentive .Platters were not good value and the specials had sell gone . Given it was only 18:00 obviously they hadn't prepared enough and as such missed a trick !

We've visited Zizzi before and the food is always decent with fresh ingredients. The service was particularly good. Our sever was great with the children and was efficient and friendly. Toilets are downstairs and nobody was in the downstairs restaurant so I didn't feel comfortable...More

It took a bit longer to serve us but that was due to how busy it was and does not reflect the service provided. I thought the service was great despite some comments here, one of the guys in particular made us feel very welcome...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.Located on busy George Street, Zizzi Oxford is close to the bus and railway stations in the centre of town and in the heart of the theatre and cinema district. The restaurant itself is heavily influenced by local legend C.S. Lewis, writer of one of the most popular books of all time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Silver birch trees referencing the forest scenes from the book and lighting features alluding to the snow drops in Narnia welcome diners. So, whether it's for a business meeting, a family get-together, a party or a romantic meal, the team at Zizzi in Oxford looks forward to your visit. And if you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.
