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.Smack dab in the heart of Leeds’ city centre leisure complex, one of our newer Zizzis stands ready to greet you. Our designers pulled inspiration from the city’s strong roots in the textile and wool industry. There are colourful Knitted wool stools that have been inspired by the city where the material originated. \we’ve even had a bespoke textile designed by Luke Trybula which forms the upholstery of the central seating feature. It’s certainly a restaurant that turns heads.

“Little disapointing”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had the Pizza Calzone Piquante, the dough was lovely and soft, it was not spicy enought for me and not what I would list as piquante, but the biggest disapointment was the lack of seasoning, it was a little bland and being a calzone, not the easiest dish to add seasoning too.£10.50

“To busy to offer Customer Service”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

It's a real shame that in this Zizzi, but the staff seem far to busy to offer any kind of customer service.

We waited 10 minutes to get cutlery for my main, we received the wrong dessert but no staff member came within 10 foot of our table after more or less throwing our desserts down on the table.

We had 3 courses and with each course there was a sizable wait until our cutlery made its way to the table. If it wasn't for the people at the table next to us, we would have waited longer than the 15 minutes we had already waited for our dessert cutlery. All this despite going up to a staff member to raise this matter.

It really is quite a shame since the food is actually really nice and quite good value for money.

“Good food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Lovely location in The Light with some outside balcony seating overlooking the precinct below. As with All Zizzis there's a good selection of pastas, pizzas and calzones all cooked to a high standard.

“Awful - even by a student's standard!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Went here with 4 other's for a friends birthday. Waiter sat us down at a table and immediately walked off. 20 minutes later he returned to take our drinks orders , which took another 10 minutes to arrive. An hour after we arrived, he took our food orders, which took another 45 minutes to arrive. Waiter was incredibly rude when telling one of our party that something was not available, and he was repeatedly ignoring the male member of our group, whom had to keep prompting him to take his order. Note that the restaurant was considerably empty, but they were sending customers away. Our food arrived , some in the wrong order e.g mains before starters, and wasn't the nicest. I normally find Italian food quite salty, but this was incredibly bland, and I practically had to season it myself. The waiter eventually took our plates and we asked for the bill, but being incredibly rude, he just walked off, regardless of the fact a member of our party was holding out their NUS Card which would've gave us discount. The waiter eventually had to re-calculate the bill, but it still seemed overpriced, especially for the lousy service and poor food.

Never again!
