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

Booked for 5.30 before Carol service at Canterbury Cathedral. Service excellent, food quick and good choice. Most pleasant dining experience.

Disappointed. Very slow...in there for nearly 3 hrs. Waited 20 mins before asked if we wanted a drink and 15 mins. to have main course plates cleared and that was only after I asked them to do so.

We went for out Christmas meal - a group of 7 of us. We waited a long time for our drinks orders, and the waitress was not terribly helpful with one of our party who has severe allergies. there is a great allergy menu, but she seemed pretty clueless about it, which was disappointing. When I arrived, the member of staff at the door just kind of waved me in the general direction of my group's table, and I had to wander about looking for a bit. It would have been nice if he'd said hello, and thought to walk me across to the table. It seemed pretty rude. The food was lovely though, and the building itself is amazing. I would go here again, but not in the busy party season, and not in a large group.

We booked an early table so we could eat before visiting the theatre - the service was quick and the food was excellent. Ideal place to eat if you are heading to the Marlow.

We booked for a 'Two courses for [$]' deal after attending a talk iin the Canterbury festival and arrived at 7. There was an extremely noisy table of teenage girls behind us, shouting Happy Birthday to You (not singing)which made talking impossible till they left. The waiter got annoyed with us for repeating the request to have the starter and main course served simultaneously because we thought he hadn't understood - he hadn't and it wasn't served as requested - altogether a disappointing experience.

Service pleasant but very slow. Pizzas fine but salad extremely mean and not worth the price. atmosphere mediocre. Looked like other diners were fed up with slow service too

We ate at 8pm, the restaurant was pretty buzzing & filled up even more through our time there. Lovely meal, not loads of choice on the menu in comparision to other popular italian restaurants but it made it that little bit more special Great attentive service & not bad prices for Canterbury

We arrived for a latish lunch with 3 generation group including bored 8 year old. Waitress very pleasant and friendly and helpful with advice on composition of dishes. Would have appreciated the drinks arriving more promptly as it was a hot day and everyone very thirsty. Overall another pleasant experience.
