We were in Leeds for the day and decided to take lunch in Zizzi at the Light. What a mistake. We should have realised when there was no one to greet us and there were loads of tables uncleared and people sat not eating. We bravely sat down and waited. We waited ages for a menu and finally had to... More

The entrance to this restaurant is odd: two solid wooden doors amongst panes of glass frontage, and with barely visible entry and paper signs, it was confusing to get in. Inside, it's modern and spacious. Service was fairly efficient and correct. The food was adequate but was purely a pizza - there were no sides included, which for £12+ I... More

Really surprised at the bad reviews. There last night and thought it great. Glad we pre booked as they turned lots of people away. Food good and reasonably priced, service spot on. Will go again.

Used some Tesco clubcard points to go out to Zizzi's... well, as a freebie it wasn't all bad. The garlic/cheese bread was edible - though it's more of a flatbread than a loaf. The ravioli were quite palatable, but the lamb meatballs were a little spicy. The real disappointment though was the staff, the utter disinterest they showed.

Came here for my brothers birthday lunch. Altogether very very average. About what I am beginning to expect from chain restaurants. The food was a mixed experience. The butterfly king prawns were very good. A promising start. We then waited nearly an hour for the main courses. In fairness the waiter brought over more drinks on the house to apologise... More

We went as a party of 10 having heard it was a good venue for groups. I can see why as I would have been unhappy as a couple. Although the starter came quickly, there was almost an hour between that and the main course. When it came, it was good, hot and fresh. However, they missed the opportunity for... More

I've been to this branch of ZiZi's about 5 times now. That, in itself, tells you something: I don't go back if I don't like the place. But sometimes, as in life, it goes wrong, and unfortunately it went wrong for us and ZiZi's on this visit. Firstly, for reasons I couldn't fathom, they've shut the main entrance which used... More

We visited this restaurant after a brief visit to Leeds, The entrance into the premises was confusing both to enter and exit. We were quickly shown to a table by a very pleasant waiter, he gave us time to browse the menu before taking our order. The kitchen was in view and were able to see both preparation and cooking....

Upon arrival , we was greeted in a polite manner our waitress soon seated us needless to say that we had not pre-booked our meal. Both the service and food were exceptional! I was thoroughly impressed with the Leeds - The light branch and i look forward to be welcomed back in the nearby future.

First of all, the door was poorly instructed, me and my two friends along with a bunch of elderly women were trying to find the door for a good 5 minutes and nobody came and helped us, secondly the waitress was very rude with us and slammed our menus down on our table and just walked away, then we sat...

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.Smack dab in the heart of Leeds’ city centre leisure complex, one of our newer Zizzis stands ready to greet you. Our designers pulled inspiration from the city’s strong roots in the textile and wool industry. There are colourful Knitted wool stools that have been inspired by the city where the material originated. \we’ve even had a bespoke textile designed by Luke Trybula which forms the upholstery of the central seating feature. It’s certainly a restaurant that turns heads.
