Food really good modern Italian. Good service. They didn't fuss about a slightly odd eating order. It wasn't cheap but who can argue with a full restaurant? Yes, it's a chain but like all good Italian restaurants it had that family feel probably because it was run by Italians! I'll be back (sooner rather than later I hope)

The waiter who came to take our order was so impolite we decided to leave. This was very disappointing as the Zizzi's in Gunwharf has excellent service and food! We were really looking forward to...

We love Zizzi, we went with our toddler and infant on a mid week lunch and staff were lovely and friendly, It was nice and quiet, and the food never fails to meet a high standard. They have a fantastic kids menu which is 3 courses and really good value. Parking is also free at Port Solent so that's a... More

They promised we could book a table to have drinks only on the phone but when we got there this wasn't allowed so what a let down.

We booked a table for a family birthday meal. We got our main courses very quickly, the pasta and pizzas were good, lots of vegetarian options. Pasta portions were a bit small. However, the restaurant was then getting busier and the service became incredibly slow. We waited 45 mins for a tiny ice cream for my son and trying to... More

After a trip to the cinema we had booked a table at zizzi's as I went there last year and loved the food. As you can imagine it was busy as it was Friday and during the run up to Christmas, however the service did not suffer and we could each other talk! Great service, clean restaurant and toilets, the... More

Description
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.Zizzi Port Solent is located on the boardwalk of Port Solent marina, with fabulous views of the marina and the surrounding area. We have a large, heated, outside seating area so you can enjoy a glass of wine in the sun and one of our fantastic Antipasto and garlic breads share with a friend.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).
