Best feature.... Our waitress 'Cat', efficient, knowledgeable, truthful and very very funny, she made our evening.
Food was good, but chips could do with more seasoning, could not taste the rosemary or the salt.

Much as you'd expect. Starters were nice. Two pasta dishes were overcooked.
Waitress wasn't great. Got impatient waiting whilst I was deciding and generally a bit sullen.
Had 25% voucher but still a bit pricey for what we had.

Pasta dishes and dessert portions a bit small. Staff good but rushed off their feet.

Everything we had was lovely, well cooked & presented nicely. Only complaint was there was no salted caramel sauce on my dessert which was the banana, chocolate, mascarpone calzone so it was quite dull tasting on the outside. I would have said something to the waitress but didn't realise until I got home & thought about it. Staff all very friendly & helpful. We asked for an outside table so on a lovely evening this made the dining experience even better although the whole restaurant is very nice.

We spent an evening celebrating a family birthday the restaurant was clean and had a friendly atmosphere we had a wide choice of our favourite dishes to chose from and one member had the gluten free menu, the service was excellent throughout the evening

Sorry but the meal was terrible and we were bitterly disappointed. I had the lamb meatballs and when the dish arrived there was plenty of sauce but one and a half meatballs !!!! It looked pitiful and for £11.50 I expected more. My friend had a chicken pasta dish with a mushroom sauce. Again a couple of bits of chicken and two shaved pieces of mushroom in a minute serving of sauce. When the waitress came round to ask if the meal was alright I of course said no and she then bought me six meatballs on a plate together plate of chicken for my friend. A manager needs to check the dishes before going out as part of quality control as this experience was not good. I was going to pop to Carluccios next door to see if they had a table free for our desert at one point.

Great service and lovely adult food. The children's portions however were very small and their garlic bread was served cold. When we asked why it was cold, we were told that it was for the safety of the children. The children did not want it cold so they heated it up for them, a little odd. And the second time it has happened at Zizzi's, so must down to serve cold!
