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).

“Gluten free - appalling ”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Truck stop standards. Cheap ingredients. Very poor meats. A sickly overpriced disgrace of a pizza. Upset my stomach almost immediately.
Don't eat here if you value your money.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Wouldn't normally review a chain, and wouldn't normally eat at Zizzi's out of choice. But we ate here after arriving lateish on a Friday evening and actually had a surprisingly excellent meal. The starter to share was delicious and my prawn linguine was spicy and yummy. Might consider eating at Zizzi's more often now!

“Lovely chocolate pudding!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

The starters and main were slightly tasteless, but the chocolate pudding made up for it, yum!

The waiter was friendly enough and the food was reasonably priced. Doubt I'll be visiting again though.

Very much a chain restaurant. Nothing amazing but nothing bad either. Food was reasonably good and cearly made from decent ingredients.

There are two very god things however; the desserts and the staff!
