Description: 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.No trip to the historic city of Canterbury in Kent can be complete without paying a visit to our restaurant. Located just off the busy High Street our Canterbury restaurant has a large garden and 5 private function rooms to accommodate any celebration. We’re lucky enough to be located in one of the oldest buildings in the city centre, spread across two floors of a Tudor town house known as Cogan's House. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. If you’re celebrating big, 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).

“Just OK”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Visited late Saturday afternoon/early evening before going to the theatre. Waitress was very good, we were served quite quickly to start with but as the restaurant got busier service slowed down but the waitress did apologise that we were kept waiting but actually the wait for our desserts was not that long. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and was very well presented but the food was just OK - nothing great. I would visit again for a similar reason because it is so convenient for the theatre, but I would make a visit just to go for a meal.

“Good pre theatre dining !”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

First time at a Zizzi restaurant and very nice too ! Very polite ,helpful and attentive staff .
We both had the pasta which was very nicely cooked and very enjoyable .
There are several eating areas which gives a nice variety . We went for the mid section , wooden tables and chairs (cushions would have been a welcome addition though ) ! The better chairs were at the front section which seemed to be for the four or more groups ! Very enjoyable though !

“Great Meal”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Visited recently for a evening meal with my boyfriend. We had no complaints as food and service were both excellent. My boyfriend ordered a Rustica and I had a Calzone, both meals were tasty and worth the money. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and not once did we feel we were being rushed through courses. Our waiter was also very friendly, polite and helpful.
