Myself and my partner decided to go for an Saturday evening meal at Zizi and had a lovely time. When we arrived we were shown to our table (which we had booked that morning) by a lovely happy lady. We were shown the menu's and drinks were ordered. The staff were all very friendly and attentive even though it was... More

What an experience, so nice to see such a beautiful historic building like this being put to good use instead of being raised to the floor. The food was divine, service was excellent what more could you ask for, thanks all at Zizzi for a great night.

Nice place to go for a bite with friends, food is nice enough and they have a vegan menu (not the best but still there!) the venue isn't the greatest but food is a good price and service is always friendly!

This was to be a meeting to get to know future inlaws, so you need to be able to talk, this is not the place to go if you want to have meaningful conversations as it is very busy and very noisy. However the food and the service were good. I would say it is ideal for young people.

What a great setting and lovely with the pianist. My pizza was delicious. Service was standard and as you'd expect.

Having been to many Zizzis over the years, we thought we should try this one. From the photos it looks stunning, but practically speaking the venue does not work. Noise echoes off the walls, the seating arrangements are odd, and we were sat right next to the kitchen area, which was not enjoyable at all. Food came fairly quickly, and... More

Zizzi is located in church in quiet area near Cheltenham center. Interior is light and decorated with wall paintings about horse races. I like that restoration tried to save authethic looks of historic building- windows, walls etc. The food is pretty expensive for my taste, but it is fresh and tasty.Waiters are nice and polite. I would recommend this place... More

Booked a table beforehand and service was fast and polite, the 4 of us were sat down briskly and served drinks. Food took some time to arrive and waited 5 minutes for the final dish. Pizzas were very nice but the lasagne wasn't fully cooked and tasted quite bland.

Thank Mike G

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.Located just outside the town centre, Zizzi Cheltenham is located in an old church so benefits from a special atmosphere and beautiful interior. In fact, it’s such a customer favourite that we often host wedding receptions and engagement dinners. We invite our customers to bring along their family and friends to join us in this spectacular double-floored setting, whether it be dining on our ground floor or relaxing with a drink on our upstairs bar! If you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).
