    We are regular customers of Zizzi's and the service has always been great. However, last night after after an hour of eating our starters our food had not arrived. I asked the waitress if she could check with the kitchen to see if there was a problem and it quickly materialised that our order had been missed. We then had to wait around 15 minutes longer for our food and understandly we were getting quite tired. If I hadn't of raised this I doubt it would have been picked up.

    The kitchen then cooked up a large calamari to apologise but seeing as we had that for our starter as well as garlic bread it probably wasn't the best option. Our waiter was lovely though and couldn't have been any nicer or apologetic.

    Also, this is the third occasion the Spiedini has not been available. It's a very nice dish so it might be worth ordering more in.

    7 family members were out to celebrate my birthday and we had a great time. Waitress Becca was great fun and the food we chose was good,beginning with some sharing boards for starters. The arancini were very popular! A variety of mains followed and enjoyed with only the pasta disappointing as it had very little chicken in it and my chocolate sea salt torte was to die for!! A good time was had by all!

    Service was excellent, food very good and the range of gluten free food was one of the best so far we have seen.

    service wasn't brilliant considering that the restaurant wasn't busy upon arrival (but the service always seems slow here). despite booking a table and selecting the festive menu online only the general menu was given at the table - had to ask for the festive menu. had to ask for drinks and then for the bill several times.
    having said that I like the food so I do return despite the service!

    Very nice atmosphere here, service was efficient but friendly. Food was of a high standard freshly cooked and tasty.

    The food was okay nothing to write home about !! However the service incredibly slow. Two hours 45 minutes just to long, particularly when there was only about 20 people in the restaurant.
