    The food was beautiful but everything else was terrible. The wait time was rediculous, the staff were rather ignorant ie when I was waiting to pay at the bar - they kept going and serving other tables. I used my Tastecard to book etc and was assured this was fine - but then they wouldnt accept it AFTER we had eaten. It was actually quite a stressful experience and I was glad to leave the place. It ruined what was supposed to be a lovely day out with my daughter.

    Absolutely amazing food BUT there's never enough I never leave full which is a shame because if I pay to go out for a meal I expect to not want to eat when I get back home everyone I know says they should definitely definitely have bigger portions my auntie my dad and his work mates my boyfriend me and my friends all agree. We love love love the food but there's never enough

    Service was very slow. each course was affected. Arrived at 6.25 for a meal for 2 and didn't leave till 9.10
    One pizza was good, the other way pretty tasteless. Deserts too were variable. Tiramisu was poor.

    Lovely restaurant and excellent food. Penne Della Casa was gorgeous. Downside for me was the price of drinks but still a very enjoyable evening.

    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!
