We met a few friends here for a meal. The food was ok but we found that the tiled floor and walls seemed to make it very noisy. We also had really slow service that night and my husbands larger was warm. I have been...More

At least you know what to expect at a Zizzi - variable service and Anglicised Italian food. On the weekday lunch time of our visit the restaurant wasn't busy, and thus there was the minimum number of staff working. So we weren't overwhelmed by attention...More

Went for lunch on a Tuesday, so not very busy. When we arrived the part of the restaurant near the door was empty and you couldn't see into the far section so we stood there for 10 mins actually wondering if it was open. Finally...More

A standard Zizzi, food up to normal scratch, what makes this place stand out from the other is the venue, a lovely building and fantastic outside seating area in the summer overlooking the castle and river. Always friendly staff and never an issue with booking...More

Great location by the river, central for shops, parking etc. Varied menu, changes frequently but includes favourites. Nice atmosphere, well organised, pleasant and efficient staff, different layout options etc. Really good Freshly Made Pizza selections while you wait - their 'skinny' options are great too,...More

First a piece of advice, if you are on a budget, be careful, with a group of 9 of us, each having different things from the menu, starters, salads mains and pudding etc plus beers, it soon mounted up to about £41 a head plus...More

The food is always of a good standard. The service is good but may be quite slow. They do not always have enough staff.

Oh no that's a shame. Did you let them know because they couldn't do enough to help us when we went?

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.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
