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.

    Sat in a lovely location overlooking Parker's Piece with windows open and a breeze. Great on a very hot day. Very busy, so service not great and food not that hot. However, when we spoke to the manager, he was very apologetic and couldn't do enough to rectify the problem. We ordered the berry sundae as a dessert and it was amazing. It made up for the warm main course. The manager did explain that as they were so busy, they couldn't get the food out quickly enough from the cooking area but he stressed that he would love to see us again and gave us very good deduction on our food. We were not put off by our experience as the manager and importance he gave to rectifying our visit made us feel that customer service is still there!

    This was a very quick pre-theatre supper but the experience was A1. Our waitress was delightful (Slovakian) and the service and food first class

    Great decor and interesting building. Lamb meatballs and the pizzas were tasty. Banana and chocolate calzone was delightful.
    Service was prompt and courteous without being intrusive.
    We used our Tesco vouchers.

    waitress was very nice, we had a table booked for 1.30 in the afternoon for Mother's Day, we ordered, ate our food and was out by 2.10pm! Yes the service was quick but tasted microwaved and disgusting! i will never go to this restaurant again!

    You get what you deserve when going to a large chain restaurant, and there was a definite 'production line' feel to the food. We ordered 2 dishes from the baked pasta section which were clearly quickly assembled and 'fast baked'. Essentially the menu promises a lot more than the chefs are permitted to deliver.
    The service was good and attentive.
