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.

    Excellent service from Ben who responded to the fact that we were running late for a concert at the Corn Exchange and brought our order of great food in double quick time and remained attentive to our needs throughout our brief time within the restaurant. Couldn't have done more for us - many thanks!

    Love this place for lunch. Waited a little too long for the waiter to come for our drinks order but all else was OK.

    Zizzi is very convenient for the Cambridge Arts Theatre which is across the road. Service is always friendly and efficient and the food reasonably priced and good quality Italian fare. We had a sharing dish as a starter and then pizzas and it was all very good. My coffee was served in a very attractive acrylic see-through glass/cup with honeycomb on the side which I though was particularly striking and very enjoyable.

    Unfortunately our experience was overall poor. We arrived for an early dinner to find the bar covered in empty dirty glasses much like a dumping ground. There were two waiters serving the whole bottom floor which was simply not enough. The staff who arrived early for the dinner shift were lounging about the restaurant in slouched on random chairs and chatting making the whole experience feel as though we were sitting in someone's lounge. Food was good, but unfortunately I would not return based on the environment and service.
