The food and drink was very good indeed. It is Easter and there are lots of people around on holiday and as a result the restaurant was full which made service a little slow because of the mass of customers. Otherwise V Good indeed, will go back regularly.

    Sorry but the meal was terrible and we were bitterly disappointed. I had the lamb meatballs and when the dish arrived there was plenty of sauce but one and a half meatballs !!!! It looked pitiful and for £11.50 I expected more. My friend had a chicken pasta dish with a mushroom sauce. Again a couple of bits of chicken and two shaved pieces of mushroom in a minute serving of sauce. When the waitress came round to ask if the meal was alright I of course said no and she then bought me six meatballs on a plate together plate of chicken for my friend. A manager needs to check the dishes before going out as part of quality control as this experience was not good. I was going to pop to Carluccios next door to see if they had a table free for our desert at one point.

    Great service and lovely adult food. The children's portions however were very small and their garlic bread was served cold. When we asked why it was cold, we were told that it was for the safety of the children. The children did not want it cold so they heated it up for them, a little odd. And the second time it has happened at Zizzi's, so must down to serve cold!

    Good food. The brownie dessert is to die for...please never take this off the menu! Friendly efficient staff. Child friendly but most importantly the atmosphere means other people's offspring are never intrusive.

    Poor service. Over half an hour to get our drinks and order. No one checked on us throughout our meal an had to ask several times for some water. Our desserts then came out different to what we ordered, and at the end they added their "optional" service charge without notifying us. General demenour of staff was poor - would rather chat to each other loudly across the bar rather than clearing tables or showing guests to their seat.

    The food was delicious and arrived really quickly, unfortunately before our starters ... our server didn't even notice so I requested they be taken off the bill and he said he'd do it straight away ... he didn't so there was a delay with paying our bill... the service was poor no second drinks or puddings offered! Such a shame as the setting and food were great but the serving team deffo let the place down

    Had a fab evening at zizzis, the thing that I was most delighted with was a vegan menu, I'm off dairy at the moment so the opportunity to have a pizza complete with vegan cheese was amazing, a ice cream too... So many places don't cater for vegans at all, or it's a very limited choice, so I was so pleased! Will definitely be visiting again, and the food was delicious! We all enjoyed it, also was a great child's menu too... Altogether a great experience, thanks!
