    No problems, good food and satisfactory service.

  • (**** 21 January 2017 by Maggie Barrows from Oxford

    If this had been my first visit to a Zizzi restaurant it would have been my last. Whilst our waitress was delightful we waited 20 minutes for our drinks a and 40 minutes for our starters. We could clearly see all the arguments taking place between waiters and chefs. The chefs appeared to be fighting between themselves. The waitress managed our complaints well however the quality of the food was appalling and fell far below that which we have come to expect from a Zizzi dining experience. After two hours of chaotic service we left still not able to have a desert or coffee as we would have missed our theatre trip. Sorry but disgusted by the experience.

    Excellent all round! Chocolate Torte was wonderful but they had run out of Prosecco....criminal!!

    Our waitress Maria was delightful - and attentive.
    The salad we both had was delicious - butternut squash is a favourite food.......
    I enjoyed my lemon sundae but the caramel sauce on the dessert my friend had, was too sweet and she left most of it.

    Main courses good but poor caprese salad starter and order of green side salad never arrived but still charged for!. Did not really appreciate being told not to print voucher code to protect the environment, we don't all live through a smartphone!

    Very fast service - Our pizzas were on our table in no time. Large portion - I couldn't eat it all.

    Disappointed with the time it took to deliver our food. The special drinks (strawberry and peach ) were not particularly nice. Prawns were nice and calamari nice.
