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.Just a short walk from the famous Globe Theatre, our Bankside restaurant offers a nice rest for the weary London sightseers and stunning river views while you dine. The illustrations decorating the walls throughout the restaurant were inspired by the surrounding area - a hub of urban skateboard culture that involves spirit, music and fashion, illustrated by the artist Matthew Brooks. Look out for loads of other interesting details including skateboard decks, modern art and vespa scooters.

This is a zizzi with a view. You know what to expect and it does not disappoint. It does get busy though.

“Really nice food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Very good service both at the door and at the table. The wine choice was good and a good price. We had starters which were lovely then the food was brought out when we had finished! My other half and I both had pasta & the dishes were equally nice! Very good!! :)

“Great location, and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

The location of this Zizzi's, must be the best in the country!??

It is located on the River overlooking Southwark bridge and St Paul's, which looked amazing on the evening we ate at our Window table.

The food and service was great, and good value

“Funky Italian restaurant in pretty location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Happened to walk by this place while strolling along the Thames and found a cosy and welcoming restaurant with a great atmosphere, good service and nice food. Although the selection on the menu wasn't huge the things on there were good. Can recommend the goat cheese ravioli. Very easy going feel to the place and the setting, overlooking the water, of course adds to the atmosphere a lot. Personal feel.

“Excellent location, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We booked in September for New Year's eve.....I don't know how far ahead you have to book normally but we were not alone in planning so far ahead. The window seats with views across to St Paul's on the other side of the river are likely to go first whatever the day.
3 course Dinner including wine and tip came to £40 per person.
Service was friendly and reasonably quick. The food was tasty and nice wine.
