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.

    Food okay. Venue ok. Disappointed that when I booked online I mentioned it was my husband's 60th and to make a fuss, but shouldn't have bothered as we went in and after a time waiter came over and said lots space where did we want to sit, nothing to make the evening special - even just a happy birthday would have been nice. Won't bother in future.

    Loved our experience at zizzi! Location was great, booking online was effortless, service was spot on couldn't have asked for more. Starters were lovely. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her lasagne. My calzone was beautiful how ever was slightly cold in the middle but I wasn't too fussed. Only downfall was we were bear the automatic doors and it started pouring and people were looking for shelter from rain and to smoke. There was a big breeze coming in but the staff soon went out and asked them
    To move. In future id ask to sit away from doors apart from that very happy!

    Great venue in a grand building with high ceilings which were stunningly decorated.
    Lots of atmosphere with a warm welcome

    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!
