Great food. Good and friendly service. Only an automatic door that wouldn't close brought a chill to the experience.

Set within the historic Cambridge city centre, Zizzi - Cambridge Bene't Street serves contemporary Italian delicacies. Low-lit spotlights illuminate the quirky, modern design features of the restaurant, along with charming, minimalist oak fixtures.

Made with fresh, seasonal produce, the delicious classics on the Zizzi menu include pastas, freshly made pizzas, salads and risottos. Tasty dishes include the spicy chicken pasta with red pesto and spring onions, the Zizzi sirloin steak with Tuscan potatoes or the porcini mushroom pizza. There is a popular well priced children’s menu and plenty of specials or vegetarian favourites.

The varied wine list at Zizzi Cambridge includes a number of Italian bottles, along with champagne, Italian beer and prosecco. The sumptuous dessert list features indulgences like amaretti cheesecake, lemon tart or warm cherry tart.

In the bright, airy dining room at Zizzi restaurant, earthy hues and sprawling trees are offset by clean, white walls. Cambridge Rail Station is a 7-minute drive away.

    Felt like a canteen rather than a restaurant. Food came before drinks, the lamb meatballs had solid bits of bone in them, and my hot chocolate pudding was stone cold. Less than average and I wouldn't eat there again.

    Once ordered, the food arrived very quickly, in fact before the drinks! Kids meals great value and very much enjoyed (ages 5 & 8). One member of party didn't enjoy the lamb pizza saying it was a little salty. Took a while for dessert order to be taken as restaurant was quite busy but then they arrived quickly.

    We booked time with a view to going to the theatre 2 hours later. Table of 5. The waiter took our order 40 mins after arrival, after only then telling us we needed a "different menu" to order from the £15.95 three courses menu, clearly we then didn't have time to decide from that menu when there, the waiter then said,would be a one hour wait for mains. Cost us more. Some starters came, some didn't come at all. One came right away, one with the main. The main was ok. I asked for a spirit drink 3x and on the third time it still wasn't right I ended up just going straight to the bar to order a different drink. V slow poor service. They did take off the starters for us from the final bill which was helpful

    Thank you having vegan options. We are both predominantly vegans, with some occasional slips. The vegan options were nice and gluten free. The pizza base was a bit soggy but overall I enjoyed it and my partner had a vegan linguini ragu. The garlic bread was nice, thin and crisp. The dessert came without the vegan coconut ice cream unless it was dairy? We eat vegan for ethical reasons not to feel superior, but in order to reduce animal suffering, reduce global warming and be healthier as a result and lesson diseases. We also eat organic and watch our sugar intake. It's what I deeply believe in. We over ate but we appreciate alternative eating options. The venues are nice. The service was good and accommodating.

    The restaurant was incredibly busy when we arrived and had to wait some time to be seated even though we had pre-booked. The staff were rushed off their feet and were doing their best to be efficient but had to wait some time to order and to receive each course.
    The food was good. The staff were overstretched.

    Party of 9 table was ready when we got there and restaurant was not busy but had plenty of staff. 1 person ordered the special only to be told 20 mins later they had run out. Then making all the other food late. 2 kids meals and 1pizza then not delivered when did come they looked very rushed like a kid made them. When bill came was charged for kids menus + extra pizzas and desserts which should have been included in the menus this was sorted by the waiter. Not a pleasant Christmas Eve dining experience

    The overall service was good, but the actual restaurant was a bit grubby, which was disappointing.
