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.

The food and drink was very good indeed. It is Easter and there are lots of people around on holiday and as a result the restaurant was full which made service a little slow because of the mass of customers. Otherwise V Good indeed, will go back regularly.

Good food. The brownie dessert is to die for...please never take this off the menu! Friendly efficient staff. Child friendly but most importantly the atmosphere means other people's offspring are never intrusive.

Poor service. Over half an hour to get our drinks and order. No one checked on us throughout our meal an had to ask several times for some water. Our desserts then came out different to what we ordered, and at the end they added their "optional" service charge without notifying us. General demenour of staff was poor - would rather chat to each other loudly across the bar rather than clearing tables or showing guests to their seat.

The food was delicious and arrived really quickly, unfortunately before our starters ... our server didn't even notice so I requested they be taken off the bill and he said he'd do it straight away ... he didn't so there was a delay with paying our bill... the service was poor no second drinks or puddings offered! Such a shame as the setting and food were great but the serving team deffo let the place down

Had a fab evening at zizzis, the thing that I was most delighted with was a vegan menu, I'm off dairy at the moment so the opportunity to have a pizza complete with vegan cheese was amazing, a ice cream too... So many places don't cater for vegans at all, or it's a very limited choice, so I was so pleased! Will definitely be visiting again, and the food was delicious! We all enjoyed it, also was a great child's menu too... Altogether a great experience, thanks!

We enjoyed lunch with two of our friends at Zizzi's. The service was prompt and efficient and the food very tasty. We enjoyed the ambience. It was quiet at lunch time and ideal for catching up with each other. Nice to have a window seat overlooking the square.
