Never disappointed at Zizzi's, although I am sad to see the Rainbow salad has been taken off the menu

The Zizzi menu showcases a passion for simple, delicious Italian food, served with an inventive twist. Hand-stretched, thin and crispy rustica pizzas are loaded with inspiring toppings, while salads and pasta dishes feature fresh, seasonal ingredients. Complementing the menu’s rich flavours, the Zizzi wine list brings together a selective stock of international bottles,and inventive cocktails are also on offer.

Specially designed for younger diners, the bambini menu at Zizzi restaurant is filled with tempting Italian dishes. For dessert, opt for a trusty Italian classic like super-smooth gelato or tiramisu, or an inventive seasonal special.

Zizzi Italian restaurant in Canterbury boasts a fabulous garden dining area, open all summer long. It is also only a 1-minute walk to the picturesque banks of the river, and popular Marlowe Theatre.

    Poor. Our party of 7 were seated near the door despite there being plenty of space further into the restaurant; a small child on another table constantly ran around and opened the door letting in cold air- neither the parents nor staff took any action to deal with the child; as we were near the bar it was very noisy as staff constantly banged the coffee machine or clanked bottles ; the waitress laughed at my husband when he asked for his meal to be served on a plate and not a board ; I thought my pasta was poor and oversalted; restaurant had run out of our first choice of red wine. Only good thing was that there was a reasonable choice of vegan meals for the two vegans in our party which was the main reason we had chosen that restaurant .

    Unfortunately the overall dining experience was not good. I felt sorry for the waitress. She was brand new and was left by herself. She only got help when things started to go wrong with other diners and it was quite a busy evening.There was a big gap - at least 38 minutes between the starter plates being collected and the mains coming out. It was a table for 5 and when the mains did come out my main was forgotten so had to be cooked later. My wifes main was luke warm so sent it back for re heating and when it came back - after being zapped in a microwave - was overcooked and the prawns were like bullets. We have dined in Zizzis in our home town on quite a few occasions and never had a bad experience.

    Atmosphere and restaurant were really nice. Food was excellent and will definitely go back. Only negative was they had run out of a particular spirit which they advertised as one of their main drinks so was disappointed to find out they had run out of it.

    Great cuisine, great venue. Sat outside and was very enjoyable. Staff excellent.

    Fast service friendly waiter good high standard. Although lovely decor a little loud for those looking for a romantic venue as you can hear everyone due to open space. We were seated behind the stairs which were a little creaky to say the least but I know it's an old building. I was a little cold as well but portable heaters had been put near us so staff were aware of it.

    It was a lovely experience, as we know we can get in our local Zizzi's restaurant. Aside from the food which is always very nice, the staff are always welcoming and friendly and accommodating, no matter which time of day or evening and which day of the week or how busy they are , we have never had any trouble.
    This particular time as it happens it was rather busy, and if anything a bit noisy, but that is not to do with the staff is to do with the group that was sitting behind us. It didn't spoil our experience and we will continue to use this venue .
