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.Situated just off the beaten track in Woking, this restaurant is worth going out of your way for. The relaxed ambiance and open plan kitchen is ideal for intimate lunches or dining out with friends, and the large outside area gives it a Mediterranean feel. But the most interesting part about this restaurant isn’t the look or feel, it’s the people. Every year, Italian villagers come to Chobham Common to pick mushrooms and always stop by to say hi. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

“Best Pizza”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

this is absolutely the best Italian style pizza I've ever had, buffalo mozzarella and fresh cherry tomatoes, thin and crispy just as it's supposed to be, quite big in size too and not so expensive. Loved and will go back.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We eat at Zizzis often as the food is always good. The service is sometimes slow but we aren't often in a hurry. Atmosphere is great.

“Oh Zizzi's. Do something about the Woking branch.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I attended for dinner on a Wednesday night with six friends. The restaurant was very busy at 8 pm. Our first drink order took an hour to arrive but it would never have arrived if one of our friends went over to ask for it. After we had ordered the soft drinks and got thirsty waiting, we ordered a bottle of wine. We eventually received one glass of this wine. Then half of soft drinks. When we asked for the Diet Coke that had been on the order (2) they brought us 4 bottles.

Happily we eventually got our bottle of wine and all the soft drinks we had ordered. All in all it was an hour before we received a drink and a further half hour before our food order was taken.

When the food arrived one friend's risotto was severely undercooked. The waiter told us that there was no rice on the premises. Eventually the head waiter offered to microwave it. One of our friends didn't get her ordered dinner. This arrived 15 mins after the rest of the food.

The coffee machine was broken. The waiter spilled Diet Coke on my white trousers.

I will not be returning to Woking. Go for Guildford, Camberley or Basingstoke - you can't fault their service.

“Poor food, slow service, very pricey!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Pizza Express was heaving, so we walked across the road to Zizzi. What a mistake! The food took over an hour to arrive, and service was very slow, too. When food finally arrived, all of it was very burnt and had to be sent back. Three minutes later, fresh food arrived! Why had it taken so long to cook first time round? Very poor experience. I'll be stickng with Pizza Express.

“Always Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and always enjoy the meal. The pizzas are very good as is the pasta (particularly the goat's cheese and pesto ravioli which is really delicious) and starters and deserts are also good. Service is friendly and efficient. You can often get discount coupons if you search which makes it even better value. This is our Italian 'chain' restaurant of choice in Woking. Recommended.
