    Nice food. Atmosphere muted as Cheltenham Zizzis is a former chapel with high, vaulted ceilings. Unless the restaurant is very full (it wasn't when we were there) it doesn't feel cosy/atmospheric. When the waiter was asked what beers they do he kind of rolled his eyes and sighed before whizzing through them. I'm sure he's asked a dozen times a day but either make sure we have a drinks menu (ours was missing) or suck it up. Our desserts were not included in the Taste card 2for1 deal when we received the bill. When this was queried it was rectified & one was removed.

    Always love the ambiance here, it's such a beautiful building. Waiter didnt really make any impact, didn't table check us. Couldnt sell us wine in a carafe (we usually can) it had to be by the glass or bottle but he couldnt tell us what the bottle cost. Garlic bread was sparse on topping, its usually loaded with caramelized onions and garlicy however I had a couple of decent pieces and 4 pieces without any topping. Pizza was good, not great but decent. Pudding - they have changed the lemon meringue sundae and it's not as good as the original, shame as I was really looking forward to it. We wont rush back to be honest

    The jazz was too loud and unmusical. Made the whole thing unbearable. Sorry.

    We tried the new Autumn menu and it did not disappoint. The vegan ‘beet balls’ were very tasty and the skinny jackfruit hot pizza was pure heaven. For those non meat eaters who miss the taste of pepperoni/chorizo this is the pizza for you. Delicious! Our waiter was great, very friendly and efficient. We will definitely be returning to Cheltenham Zizzi

    Very enjoyable. The welcome from the duty manager was on the frosty side. He didn't bother to check our reservation (we did arrive slightly early). However, the service from his staff was very good - friendly, attentive, efficient. The food was excellent. For starter, y wife had the soup, which was rich and tangy but not acidic. I enjoyed the excellent pork and herb herb meatballs served in tomatoes. My wife enjoyed the perfectly cooked seared salmon for her main course, while I enjoyed the equally well (slow) cooked pork belly. The portion was very generous, tender and full of flavour, with a beautiful herby crust.

    The food was good but the service was not. We waited almost one hour to be served olives, then the starter arrived some time after that. Then restaurant was not busy but the staff were not attentive. It spoilt our dining experience. On arrival we felt ignores as we waited for sever minutes before anyone came to seat us. We noticed that this happened to others.
