(**** 3 January 2018 by Sarah from Edinburgh
No option but to book for 5.45pm. Waited a long time for simple mains of pizza and very overcooked and measly though expensive king prawn skewer. Waiting staff argued over my order of a glass of prosecco for my 17 year old (totally legal when eating out), saying she needed proof that the drinker was over 25. Manager sorted but my young adults felt embarrassed to be treated like this.
The whole restaurant was full of xmas shoppers naturally, yet the staff hadn't dealt with coats etc so it felt a mess and overcrowded. It took two goes for them to get the bill right despite me telling the manager we had Tesco vouchers on arrival. And they had no Kalhua for a particular cocktail.
Overall, as far as a chain goes, the food is underwhelming, overpriced and staff appear unable to deal with a busy sitting and uninformed on licencing law. I left a decent tip (which I hope stays with waiting staff and not shared with kitchen) because I spent many years as a waitress and I feel these problems lie with poor management and inadequate training.

Good food, lovely setting, waitress seemed very harassed and un organised. She wasn't very welcoming in fact she seemed quite un interested. Other than this we would go back.

We come to Zizzi Roxburgh Court fairly often and it's always a very pleasant dining experience. Lovely location with nice views over to Scott's Monument, good atmosphere, friendly staff and good value food. Love the cheese fondue starter and rustica pizzas are amazing with my personal favourite being the primavera. Service was perhaps slightly slow yesterday however it was worth the wait and the restaurant was extremely busy.

We went here with 5 adults and a toddler and it was great. Everyone really enjoyed their food, the kids meals were especially great for the toddler (not just chicken nuggets or pizza - he had olives, place goujons and strawberry sorbet) and the service was brilliant too. The restaurant is quite big and bright and had a really nice atmosphere. Just be prepared for the amount of stairs leading up to it of you go from the Cockburn street side. We ended up carrying a buggy up and were definitely in need of water by the time we reached the entrance! All in all we paid about £120 for everything (3 courses for the wee one, bread for the table, 5 main meals, 3 desserts, 2 alcoholic drinks, 4 soft drinks and a coffee) and the portions were a pretty decent size. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

Nice and quiet considering the festival was in future flow. Good table with window city view. Food was off the mark compared to my regular visits room the Newcastle branch. In particular that pizza was cold.
Nice wine. Dissapointed
