This popular restaurant is conveniently situated on the waterfront at Portsmouth near to Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower. We had a long wait for a table but when the food arrived most of the group enjoyed it. Waiter service friendly and reasonably efficient bearing in mind the number of clients. A bit on the expensive side.

Called in here for lunch on Friday. 2 ladies covering floor for service which wasn't enough. Had our starter which was lovely but gave up on our main after waiting nearly 40 mins and watching others getting served who had come in well after us. We had a train to catch so paid for our drinks and starters. Think sign... More

A busy restaurant but service remained good, food nice and reasonably priced. We popped in and then booked a bit later as a glimpse of sunshine had brought crowds to Gun wharf.

Have eaten here on many occasions and the level of service and consistency of the food is excellent. Can get busy sometimes, but that just shows its popularity.

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Gunwharf Quays where we had been shopping and wanted something quick, simple and tasty. We found Zizzi and had. Very pleasant meal. Two courses each. My wife had a pizza and I had a risotto. We had a side of garlic bread topped with mozzarella. I had a Toscana soup to start... More

My friend and I are vegetarian and vegan respectively and wanted a cheap meal out so zizzis it was! It was a busy evening there and we later found out they were a member of staff down. The vegan menu was really good-nothing too boring! Especially the calzone dessert which was delicious. Despite some other very rude customers the staff... More
