Great building, very attentive service, food fine but not outstanding - really tasty salad, but salmon overcooked. Loved the ice cream.

    Unfortunately, overall we did not have a good dining experience here. We have been here a few times before and it has always been good. However, this time, one of the starters (Mushroom Brindisi) had to be returned twice because it turned up cold twice! After the second attempt we said to leave it and just have the main course. I had the Butterfly King Prawn starter, which was just luke warm and the 2 bread rolls were sitting in the paprika sauce. Not great. Three members of the party ordered the Spiedini Pescatore. Unfortunately we watched them sitting on the counter for 4.5 minutes, whilst the chef handled the food with his hands, brushed past the food with his t-shirt and in the meantime the food was getting colder and colder. No hot counter or heat lamps. We watched the lemon sauce being poured from the scissor snipped plastic pouch. So off putting to watch this. Also, one of the three fish kebabs had less fish on it than the other 2. We commented on this, but the waiter didn't seem to care and unfortunately this was served to the person who had had to send back their starter twice. No waiter came back to check if we were happy with everything. The only positive is that the waiter at the time of ordering the bill did take a bottle of prosecco off the bill total. Unfortunately, this experience has turned us 5 diners off of ever eating in a Zizzi restaurant ever again. Shame.

    Food was good as was the service but the wait for the food to arrive was so long!
    We both had good pasta dishes ( Cicken and Beef/Venison) and New Bruschetta, which were very good.
    Waiter was good too.

    Was a great New Year´s dinner. Nice restaurant with great decor and a chill ambience. The starters and the desert were the best. Even though my friends had better main dishes. Amazing service mainly by the person that look after our table.

    Excellent, was going to the theatre and decided to eat in this restaurant first. All was great!

    We weren't the quietest table of 9 but we were made very welcome and well looked after by our waiter Jay. I had the Butterfly prawns to start, they were absolutely delicious, the only down side was the fact they hadn't removed all the shell but if that's not an issue for you then you'll love these. Selection of vegetarian dishes were few but tasty (so the veggies among us said). Recommend highly.
