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.

    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.

    Great service

    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.
