    Worst service ever, we booked a table and when we arrived they just sat us anywhere - what was the point in me booking then. Our 'waitress' clealy didn't want to be there only thing she asked was what we wanted to order and deserts? No check back was done, no additional drinks order - when we all finished our drinks after our starters. They forgot our olives which is a common mistake to make but when I had told the manger she just assumed what we had ordered which we had to step in a say they were the wrong ones so she then got the correct ones and she threw them on the table, then of course said thank you and she just walked off without saying a word - not even a smile. When the food was brought over it was brought by the runner who just chucked it on our table and didn't ask anyone if we wanted anything else or even cheese(as we all got pasta) when I managed to get his attention he went to ignore me then nodded and 'bowled it over.' When our waitress came over to take our desert order we all decided against getting one in the end due to being so full, then she rolled her eyes and took the menus - again no drink orders were taken. When we had asked for the bill we asked the runner as no one else was around he then said 'Yeah no problem' and never came back. I then had to ask the manager who again didn't seem to bothered. Overall lovely food but terrible service. I am very shocked in the service that me and my party received as I have worked in Zizzi's Chelmsford myself and they take pride in their service. Now they have new management it is clear to me that is not a priority anymore.

    Very good food and service. Only criticism was that layout of tables felt too close together waitress was squeezing past and both my friend and I are tall and needed leg room. Also you don't want to be on top of other people. I know the restaurant want to maximise on the number of diners but it can be offputting.

    Great welcome and service excellent. Waitress was very smiley which was nice

    The food was amazing! My favourite dish was the main, classic margherita pizza. The garlic bread with caramelised onion was a close second.
    The waitress was very smiley and polite, which I noticed she was like with all customers. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, it felt a little cramped to start with, as the tables are quite close together, but once you start eating you don't seem to notice that much. One thing I did see which was a little bothersome, was it looked like someone had pee'd on the floor in the gents toilet.
    Overall, definitely will be eating there again.

    Set menu had good selection. Beautiful interior and lovely atmosphere. Waiter was polite and helpful. Service not as quick as I would have liked but gave us good time to chat.

    We were seated next to counter which had plastic crates and metal lids on it! One of the chefs was eating im the cooking area. Starter I wanted unavailable, 2nd choice prawns in sauce good but served in shells, no finger bowl provided. My beef main good, salmon salad very average. People at next table left without eating as waited an hour and still no food.

    Terrible experience from being out of stock on a number of items causing us to change our choice, slow service, long wait for food and then when it did arrive one dish was wrong and we had to wait ages for a replacement. The food was also tasteless.
    The only positive was the staff doung there best to apologise for the bad experience.
