The interior of the restaurant was lovely, but we had a table on the fringe, by the main entrance, so the atmosphere was not great. A large menu but the pizza which I ordered was quite bland and the salad was uninteresting. The waiter was good but was difficult to track down as he was run off his feet as there were too many customers for staff. Not good enough to return to.

A real disappointment. Disinterested staff, who seemed to take great pleasure in mocking my amatuerish Italian pronunciation from the menu. Poor service was then followed by sub standard food. Poor proportions, not well presented and a long wait between courses
A lengthy wait followed for a bill, despite us asking for it more than once.
The food was bland and overpriced.
Perhaps it was a bad day, but i cant think of anything to recommend about this place.

First time at zizzis and having heard mixed reviews wasn't sure what to expect. Waited by the door and was ignored by a manager and two waitresses, fair enough they were busy but at least should have been acknowledged and told they would be with us soon. Sat at a table near the kitchen so would have thought staff would have noticed us when they were going back and forth. Instead we were left for ages, a table that came in after us and sat next to us were served a long time before us. Waiter was really nice and more than happy for us to swap some ingredients we didn't like for something else and the food didn't take too long. But the staff walked round looking miserable and it was near impossible to get someone to get us another drink. Don't really have much chance of good service when the managers are ignoring you.

My wife and i have a fondness for Zizzis the food and service is normally of a very high standard which s very refreshing for a large chain.

We decided to visit the Harrogate branch nearly a year after its opening and had high expectations. The meal itself was very good food tasty and anice atmosphere. Ths was until desserts - we had to wait 20 minutes for dessert menus as well as another 20 minutes for the order to be taken - by this time our party was ready to leave.

There was no real apology - apart from we are very busy - i understand working in the industry the pressures however when the manager has his coat on at 9Pm when speaking to me it is obviously not that busy!
It will not put us off Zizzis however i will think again about using the Harrogate branch.
