“excellent!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

we ate here after visiting the national railway museum - mid afternoon on a Sunday - it was really nice and tasty - good mix of couples and families - friendly staff and the food was really nice - not huge portions but satisfying especially after starters and with desserts - good balance - it is slightly more expensive than the usual chain Italians but it is really well cooked food - made fresh - in the exposed kitchen. Would definitely come back again.

“lovely building...”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Interior was nice-great wall mural! Food sounded good and although nice enough we felt some of it lacked real flavour. Bolognese was a bit disappointing. Ice cream was very good indeed though-recommend it! Service was good and friendly. Have been to Zizzi in Cambridge and enjoyed meal more.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Called in for the 3 course lunch deal. Excellent sized starters of garlic bread, light, fluffy and hot. Main course of chicken and spinach calzone was lovely, my wife had Lasagne, a little sloppy and too much tomato(for her taste), but still tasted quite nice. Desserts were chocolate melt and ice cream, the melt was a little rich, plus lemon tarte, need to serve fresh pouring cream or ice cream with this. Overall a really good value experience and I wouldn't hesitate in trying Zizzi's again. Very attentive staff.,

“Expensive and micro-portions”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Golden rule of restaurants - don't skimp on portion sizes. Zizzi have managed portion control to the gram, and have got it wrong. Nice food, but not worth the cost.

“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife, daughter and I ate here recently. We thought that the food was good and reasonably priced. The service was also very good - in particular, the woman manager from Latvia was very helpful and friendly.
