    Going out for a dinner with a friend who according to his religion's preferences he doesn't eat pork, Zizzi's seemed a good idea as we were expecting to find some tasty dishes which will leave us all happy.
    Once we placed an order for the Calzone carne piccante we doubled check with the waitress if pork is included on it, who did confirm to us that there is no pork at all.
    Surprisingly, we found some pepperoni slides which obviously resulted on disappointing us for choosing that restaurant and more importantly to insult our friend's religion.
    Our order had been replaced, however we were expecting a much better service and approach to that situation.
    Happening this to us could easily happen to any other person.

    We did enjoy our meal, but my daughter ordered gluten free and they gave her the normal base, she noticed thank god, the waitress was sorry but asked if she had been told. My daughter had ordered from gluten free menu, told her and pointed it out on the menu. Not sure what else she could of done. Also our drinks took ages and it took another waiter to ask us about drinks as he noticed we were eating our started and no drinks were in the table. I booked a table on bookable and my partner went into the restaurant and booked a table, when we realised what we had done I called to cancel one, they had no record of my partners reservation even though he actually gone in and booked with a member if staff. All that said I would go back as food was nice and the staff did seem pleasant.
