    Payment process could be better to avoid confusion. Also, some food was lacking a bit of flavour. The space was nice

    Zizzi’s food is always lovely. Their kids menu could do with some junior dishes. The service at Reading was very disappointing. We got our starters 1.5 hours after arrival -kids included - really tough to manage hungry little ones for that long. Considering that it was a late lunch and the restaurant weren’t really taking new lunch tables on that time. The main took another hour or more and we eventually collected drinks from the bar ourselves as the tray stood unattended for a good 15 minutes. The waitress was lovely, but one of only 2 serving the whole restaurant on Mothersday. Extremely poor management considering that they were fully booked for most of the day. I don’t think I’ll visit that branch again.

    Great service and lovely food as usual. We all enjoyed the free bottle of Prosecco for my wife's birthday.

    Excellent special diets menu, flavours were great BUT, service was a bit slow, they were very mean with their pizza toppings and careless in preparation. Two people had vegan lentil ragu, one had loads of sauce and a sprinkle of chopped basil, the other had hardly any sauce and no basil (or whatever the topping was) - careless!

    Food was nice. Not happy with the service, the staff were rude and impatient. When we refused to pay the service charge because we were not happy, we were questioned to a point where it felt like an interrogation. Very disappointed.
