The food was pretty good. The service was horrible. We waited a very long time between visits to the table to order and for our bill.

Found the menu a little blah!. It was very expensive for what we got. The pizza dough was either Rustico or Regular but it was rolled so thinly that it gave the appearance of being big and plentiful. The toppings were very sparse so mine...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.Durham is rich with history and we wanted to make sure we captured that in our restaurant. Durham Zizzi’s design pays homage to the beautiful cathedral with painted glass frames - a modern interpretation of the cathedral's stained glass wrapped around the staircase. LED rods illuminating the roof, wooden wall paneling, and grand chandeliers (both old and modern) make sure the building achieves the trickiest of tricky tasks of being both historical and cutting edge. If you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).
