We were visiting for the day & evening. As not really not knowing what was available food wise in Newark on a Sunday we visited Zizzi think we could've done better. Lovely location in an interesting building. We were welcomed & shown to our table,...More

travelled a long way for a special celebration meal. Service so bad that we walked out after half an hour, not even having had our order taken. Very rude. Limited choices. Very noisy. dirty. No customer service.

It was a little busy due to Newark Music Festival being on but the service wasn't that bad at all. Food was gorgeous and loved my Pink G&T.

Waited an absurdly long time for service despite few customers at lunch time seating. Pizza basis good. Starter on cold plates. Too much spicy sauce put on pizza. Setting very nice. Staff pleasant. Discount given. Management clearly concerned but looks like some general issues with...More

Oh no that's a shame. Did you let them know because they couldn't do enough to help us when we went?

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.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
