It's big and it's right in the heart of Canterbury. And that's about it. The food is pre-cooked and uninspired; the service is OK-ish; the prices are high; and the atmosphere is a bit like a train station.

Visited here with family for our evening meal the night of our daughter's graduation. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I had a starter and a main and the portion was huge, we left very happy and full.

Enjoyed a lovely meal and the staff were very helpful. Refreshing to find a chain offer vegan alternatives to their most popular dishes.

Had a meal here before going to the theatre which is very close by. It was a Saturday and we hadn't booked but they found us a table. Food was great and the service was good.

Although Zizzi Canterbury is one of our favourite restaurants, we thought we would ring the changes with a visit to Pizza Express. Having been ignored and not acknowledged at all within a 5 minute time frame, we left and returned to one of our of our favourite restaurants in Canterbury - Zizzi. We even tried something new here - the... 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.No trip to the historic city of Canterbury in Kent can be complete without paying a visit to our restaurant. Located just off the busy High Street our Canterbury restaurant has a large garden and 5 private function rooms to accommodate any celebration. We’re lucky enough to be located in one of the oldest buildings in the city centre, spread across two floors of a Tudor town house known as Cogan's House. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. If you’re celebrating big, 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).
