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. Located 10 minutes from the train station and just off Market Square, our Zizzi in Hitchin is the perfect spot to take a break from wandering around the lavender fields. Run by a team of locals who pride themselves on giving friendly home-style service, what more reason could you need to book a table? Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.

Never been to a zizzi's before, as we approached the restaurant it looked very inviting. We waited a few minutes to be seated and straight away our waitress for the night was very attentive and helpful. We gave her our daughters birthday cake to bring out later in the night and so we arranged a signal to acknowledge when we wanted it. We were seated right by the window which was nice and served with drinks almost immediately. We ordered our starters and whilst that was cooking we pondered and then ordered our main so that was cooking whilst we eat our starter. The starter came we had a 'sharer' which contained a mixture of everything, the only slight disappointment was that the prawns on skewers were somewhat cold (but cooked) the rest was piping hot and delicious. The mains were lovely served on wooden boards, pizza was huge as was the calzone, all felt very authentic Italian and it certainly didn't feel like a 'chain' restaurant. The cake came out to complete the evening as requested and on time. Overall great experience would highly recommend if you are after authentic Italian, if your after burger and chips this is not for you.

This is a re review as went there last year .... I just wanted to say it's just as good as last time. We had the stretched pizzas.. Yummie

It's a very noisy restaurant so wouldn't recommend for a first date

The poor staff are run off their feet but very friendly and relaxed considering

We used a 30% off voucher from the Martin Lewis website so even better

I would recommend here as it's one of the busier places to eat in Hitchin during the week

Very good food and friendly service. Atmosphere seemed a little noisy at first but was ok. Didn't have the "chain" feel of some similar restaurants

Was OK. Only ones there as ate early as had my one year old with us. Food was nice loved my main. Didn't think much of my starter which we shared. First time we tried that and it wasn't the best. Next time will stick with what we know.

First visit to this restaurant and I was really impressed all round.

Visited with a group of mums on a mid week evening and everything was great. The waitress seemed a bit clumsy / unsure what she was doing but I'm sure she said she had only just started.

Will definitely return. Thank you
