It was busy when we arrived so we were glad to have booked online. Matt T was an amazing waiter. The food was great. We are definitely now part of the "best olives in the world " club.

Dined here at lunch time. Extensive menu with something for everyone- from light bites(which were quite substantial) to more robust meals. Nice selection of drinks too. Nice atmosphere with very clear views of the super wood fired enormous oven. We were served by Matt who...More

Chose to book Zizzi for our special night out as we have always had a lovely meal there in the day time. Unfortunately this was ruined by being placed on a table near the kitchen door where the incredibly busy staff were running through constantly,...More

Wonderful evening for a family celebration. Matt was amazingly attentive, brilliantly advising us on the menu - helpful without being at all pushy! Thank you Matt!

Came for a family meal mid week. Waited an hour for main meals. Particularly annoying because the reason for the delay was they were busy cooking takeaway meals for Deliveroo. Disappointing.

After collecting a large number of Tesco reward points, four of us decided to try Zizzi for the first time. I noted from the internet that lots of people had complained about the service. We went on a very busy Saturday night. Our waitress was...More

At Zizzi we like to do things a little differently. We don’t do over-complicated recipes or scrimpy portion sizes. We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food.We are situated on the famous Gandy Street, just off the main High Street and close to Exeter Central train station, making us a popular destination with shoppers and tourists. We are housed in the old City Chambers, providing a lovely open plan dining area which can be used to accommodate parties and families of all sizes. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
