    Although we dined during half term, and the restaurant was extremely busy, the service was fantastic. We didn't wait too long for our food or drinks, and the waiter we had was polite, quick and efficient. The front of house staff were especially polite! I love Zizzi's menu, so will defiantly return in the future.

    Pretty awful, the food was fairly stodgy and both courses came out cold. The general manager came and apologised he was lovely and very charming and took off the price of the two courses that were cold but I am afraid it did not make up for waiting for my main course while my husband and son finished theirs. After waiting for this course to be honest I didnt feel like my meal even though it came out completely fresh and piping hot. If you really want to know the whole experience was disappointing, the aperitif of the prosecco was awful, too sweet, a cheap bottle!

    Thank you, a group of 16 had a great meal. Small delay getting table ready but lady maitre de was excellent, and served first glass of Prosecco in no time. Great start to the New a Year. My husband and I always enjoy a meal at Zizzi's. it's local, has atmosphere, great offers and friendly staff. Well done! ??
