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.Zizzi Inverness is truly one of the most stunning restaurants we have. One elevation is all glazed floor to ceiling - giving diners a truly amazing view of the river. Four local themes have been the inspiration behind the design of the new restaurant: the historic River Ness, boats, whisky distilleries and the Highlands. A large wooden ceiling raft that is splintered at one end to replicate old boats, light fittings that look like buoys and a rope and pulley feature in the window. The contour lines of the Highlands and Lowlands are detailed through Ordnance Survey maps on the ceiling, whilst copper pipes throughout the restaurant give a nod to the famous distilleries.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

Many of the highly rated restaurants in Inverness have bars and don't seat groups with children after 8 PM. We tried Rocpool & Riva before going to Zizzi's. The place is a little loud (An occasional toddler shout-out isn't noticed). Service and food are both quite good. Local beers and Italian fare are served.

Eaten at a few zizzi restaurants in the past and really enjoyed it, sadly this time we were very disappointed. We ordered our food and wine, the wine came quite quickly but sadly the food didn't. After a 30minute wait we complained that we hadn't got our starters and was told that because we ordered chicken and prawns it would take longer to arrive. It was only after another 20minutes that we finally got our food with an apology. It turned out that the kitchen had lost our order, although the restaurant was very busy that night I think that this should have been spotted and sorted out a lot sooner especially when tables that came in after us got their food before us. Our main courses and coffees arrived quickly after we had our starters. Food was tasty apart from the fish stew being over cooked.

Thankyou for your feedback, I am really sorry to hear about your long wait for your starters. You are absolutely right if the kitchen had lost your ticket it should have been picked up alot sooner, regardless how busy it was. Your server and the staff running the pass should have been aware of your delay and acted alot sooner to resolve it. I have discussed this with the mgt team to prevent this happening again. Appologies again for your wait and thankyou for your comments.

I've been a couple of times now, and have the stagioni pizza, and I can't fault anything. The chefs are on show, and it's great to see all the food freshly made to order. Great staff and quick service.

Visited on a very busy Weds night, but they fitted us in. The service was fast, friendly, and the food was fresh, tasty, and pretty healthy! Great night, albeit a little expensive. The location is fantastic right on the river ness.

The restaurant itself is lovely, nice location and view. The staff were ok, not stand out. The food itself was pretty poor, this was my second visit. The first time i had pasta which was not good so i thought id try a pizza-i found it to be dull and bland. The toilets were disgusting. I wouldnt recommend going here, there are plenty nicer places nearby
