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.Right across from Hampton Court railway, our Hampton Court restaurant has been designed using aspect from the River Thames, Hampton Court Palace and the hundreds of boats that zip up and down the river every day. This light, open restaurant is located on the banks of the river Thames, a short walk from the famed Hampton Court Palace and its beautiful gardens. Enjoy the views from inside the restaurant with its glass doors and windows or dine al fresco and watch the world go by. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

I was in a happy mood looking forward to our concert of the hampton court music festival.
But! This seafood risotto just ruined my day. The risotto rice is clearly so over cooked that tasted and looked like porridge. Seafood was clearly not defrosted and was tasteless. I could even taste the residue from other food cooked in the pan in my shrimps. Was tempted to return the dish, but was in a hurry and food was thankfully cooked.

Visit here once every few weeks, they always refresh the menu, I love the fish stew, the staff are very friendly we have got to know them and they always recorgnise us, great casual dining experience.

A great meal at a wonderful location= it was lovely sitting watching the river.
Food was excellent - at a really good price for 4 aduls with beer & wine - all had main courses and 2 dessert, £20;00 each - we had a discount vouchers which we printed off.
Good service - meals were brought in good ties and she was happy to leave us and not keep pestering about taking orders as we were chatting, which was good as the restaurant was fairly busy, we didn't feel rushed at all.

Hampton Court is seriously lacking in good eateries. There are many cafes and sandwich shops but not much by way if fine dining. We originally had booked the Mitre Brasserie because of its waterside setting. Sadly the setting is all it has going for it, the menu was dire and the smell and look of the food was poor. We left and were then stuck with finding somewhere else to eat.

After walking around for 1/2 an hour passing cafe's and dark eateries we decided that we'd settle in Zizzi's. the menu was pleasant. They had some good salad specials and it was nice and bright.

The pizzas were good, large and tasty. My seafood frito misto was prodominently vegetables with little seafood, but the flavour was good. The seafood stew was nice, nothing special but acceptable. The service was friendly and efficient.

All in all it was what I would expect from a chain.

We arrived in East Molesey on Friday evening and decided to pop into Zizzi's for a meal. It was still early, so there were plenty of tables but the waitress decided to put is in a corner and then promptly forgot about us! All through the meal we had to keep asking for service. The only thing she was prompt with was the bill! The food was pleasant, but nothing out of the ordinary. Shame because the restaurant itself is in an excellent position, just on the corner of the High Street.
