    Beautiful restaurant! Interior unlike any other I've been to! Despite slightly slow service the waitres that served us was so lovely we didn't mind the wait at all! Had a lovely evening! Only complaint would be the cocktails are far too small for the price in which they charge. Food was delicious could not fault it!

    staff really nice and friendly,starters good and arrived quickly, main courses excellent but took a while to arrive although the staff apologised for the wait and gave us a discount so we very happy with how they handled the delay. We would come back and recommend. The place was clean including the toilets

    Waiting staff were polite and friendly on arrival. I made my booking through Bookatable and advised I would be using my Tastecard, no difficulties experienced.. We were offered drinks very quickly and the service was excellent although it was very early and the restaurant only had a few other diners. Our waitress was attentive and brought chilled tap water to the table with our wine although we hadn't ordered any. The meal was good, the food was hot and freshly prepared and we enjoyed our pre dinner meal. We will happily return.

    The booking service was excellent and I would certainly use book a table again. Unfortunately, the food was very disappointing. We were on holiday in York, we come from Scotland and are frequent visitors to zizzi as we love the food. This was not like the food served in zizzi back home. The service was excellent but the food was not.

    Looked after very well by our waiter, despite it being extremely busy. Food served hot and with plenty of flavour, adult menu choices are excellent and a little different to other pizza chains. Our little boy was feeling out of sorts due to having a cold and sore throat, but he was thrilled to receive some extra ice cream and a small dish of sweeties. Such a lovely gesture by our waiter. Only recommendation is that the children's menu could be adapted so that they have an option of choosing a smaller version of an adult pizza/pasta dish for their mains. A very positive dining experience and we have no hesitation in returning in the future.

    Had to ask to be served at every point (drinks, meals, dessert, paying etc).

    Had to wait a while before the waitress asked us for drinks. Service good after that. Starters and dessets much better than the main courses. The seats are wooden and very uncomfortable to spend an evening on.

    I found the food particularly unique, seeing as other restaurants, whilst serving similar dishes, did not show as much passion in each individual dish they have to offer. Zizzi shows passion and commitment in delivering the food to customers and I recognised the nature of quality over quantity - something which most customers would favour. Indeed, I would strongly recommend this restaurant to others.

    We dined at Zizzi on a weekend to York with the family. The food was lovely with a good menu. The children's menu was also good and varied. I had the sea bass, which was delicious. The atmosphere was good. The only grievance was that the chairs were very hard to sit on, being wooden.
