    My first visit to zizzis . Rather inattentive staff , meals came quickly but very small helpings and the spaghetti carbonara was bland and not really a carbonara very runny insuffient sauce. I eat Italian food frequently and this doesn't hit the brief. Although my picante pollo was lovely. Bit disappointed .

    The welcome was friendly and we were seated within minutes. The service for drinks and food was without delay and the food great. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Going out for a dinner with a friend who according to his religion's preferences he doesn't eat pork, Zizzi's seemed a good idea as we were expecting to find some tasty dishes which will leave us all happy.
    Once we placed an order for the Calzone carne piccante we doubled check with the waitress if pork is included on it, who did confirm to us that there is no pork at all.
    Surprisingly, we found some pepperoni slides which obviously resulted on disappointing us for choosing that restaurant and more importantly to insult our friend's religion.
    Our order had been replaced, however we were expecting a much better service and approach to that situation.
    Happening this to us could easily happen to any other person.
