Located in the heart of the old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, Zizzi – Edinburgh Roxburgh serves authentic Italian cuisine in a library-themed restaurant with an al fresco terrace enjoying views out to Princes Street Gardens. Just off the Royal Mile, it is the perfect spot for a meal after a day of seeing the sights in the area, which include Edinburgh Castle and the 17th-century Mary Kings Close.

Enjoy thin and crispy rustica pizzas loaded with fresh toppings, a skinny pizza range with all offerings under 550 calories, and sumptuous cichetti tasting plates. Complementing the rich natural flavours, the Zizzi wine list is compiled by Italian wine expert, Guillaume Aubert.

Specially designed for younger diners, a bambini menu at Zizzi restaurant is filled with tempting yet nutritious Italian dishes. For dessert, organic gelato comes courtesy of renowned ice cream maker, Kitty Travers.

    No non alcoholic beer available. Chicken on skewer was dry and the meal lacked vegetables

    It was ok. Restaurant not too busy. Service slow though and waitress spilt a hot chocolate over table and daughter's jumper and had 10% service added because we were a group of 10! Lovely girl but overall Zizis have little concept of good customer service in my opinion - sorry Zizi's

    Food was ok. Much more expensive than home location. Restaurant was noisy re fringe, but there were quieter tables at the back. Would have liked the choice to move. Service was friendly and helpful. Fair to good experience

    While my friend and I have no complaints about the food, the service was terrible. We arrived early and no problem seating us straight away and the waiter was very helpful and pleasant, however, while we were deciding we ordered our drinks and he said he'd get our order once he brought our drinks, that took 40 minutes! By the time the starters arrived we had nearly finished our glasses of wine so had to order more wine(!) and eventually when it came to the desserts I had to ask if we could actually make our choices as by now we felt we were being ignore, and have the bill at the same time as we had now been in the restaurant for over 2 hours. We both felt it possibly had something to do with the fact we had a voucher for one of their offers as the table next to us arrived a good bit after us and they were getting served quicker, in fact they were asked about their desserts before we were! We had a show booked and I am so glad I booked giving us plenty of time as overall the meal took us nearly 2 and a half hours, at that was mainly down to bad service, not the food. I did mention it on the way out and they were very sorry but that was it!

    The restaurant is in a cool location and is lovely inside. The service was fast and friendly. Food was tasty and serviced with some quirky touches.

    Love Zizzi Roxburgh as it is in a wonderful location, great building with lovely views towards Princes Street. Great ambience, food was fabulous as always, helpful and friendly staff, lovely pink G&T's!! The only thing yesterday and also the last time I visited was there didn't see to be a lot of waiting staff which made for a very long wait between starters and main courses but it was worth the wait once they came.

    Food is excellent but the service is poor.

    Ask for a table with the fantastic views over to Princes Street.This branch of Zizzi is a gem situated in a Close in Edinburgh's Old Town. Recommend the Mushroom Birdini and the cheese fondue with the amazing 'little soul' bread as starters. The classic rustica zucca pizza is excellent but too much after a starter.
