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.One of our own waitresses, Nadia Taylor, decorated the restaurant walls with her inspiration of Italian 'glamour and sophistication', which we felt summed up the restaurant pretty nicely! A small and intimate restaurant on the edge of Finchley - it is popular both within the local community and also much further afield - with some of our regulars travelling over 15 miles to visit us! Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

“Busy !”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Ok food, but staff so busy that you feel like they havent got time.
Waited for the bill long time and when we walked up to counter to pay, the waiter said he had no time to take payment now !

“Chained”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Went to Zizzi for the first time looked good on the inside, nice wood fire oven some kind of large art murals on the walls. Felt a little vibe in the place a little cold. Staff in one spot talking and not being attentive was the first hint to me on this place.

Ordered a garlic bread and olives to start, came out quickly and tasted quite nice.

That was the end if the nice part, the rest of the tapas selection was bad, warm small rubber prawns, mini rubber meatballs, some kind of steak strips of rubber. Sent back the chicken skewers as they where burnt to a crisp on one side.
Drink service worked by me placing and waving my hands in the air for a drink.

So overall a waste of £60 and a never to return tick in the box.

“Much better than Cheltenham”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

I've been to a few Italian chain restaurants but this was definitely the best. Good food and portion size, good service and there are nearly always offers on, so not too pricey. Much better than my nearest Zizzis in Cheltenham.

“Pleasant experience. A good all rounder.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Restaurant was very busy with a party on arrival. Staff were helpful and considerate in trying to seat us away from the party which was near finishing. Warm and cosy atmosphere. Food was of a good high standard throughout. Serving staff were excellent.

“Office night out.. Good Value...”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Us girls from the office usually go out once a quarter and we always go to Zizzi Finchley. Iit is very relaxed and food is good and plentiful. Usually we wait for a voucher offer and use this but at this time of year they are not that plentiful but still good value. We have always had a good meal either a starter and main or a main and dessert. Food menu changes periodically and this is good as one does not get bored with SAME AS SAME AS.. We always have a laugh and whatever tension we had going into the restaurant evaporates by the time we leave. Well done Zizzi for always keeping your customers happy. Service is good and plenty of parking. See you for our Christmas Meal.
