On arrival I was greeted with a mild Christmas theme throughout the restaurant....nice touch. However my mood was quickly dampened. I took my seat under what could only be described as an industrial icy blower, which is not what you need on a cold winters...More

Nice pizza. Usual menu, nothing really to set it apart. Nothing bad. Service good. Food was good quality. All fine if relaxed chain Italian restaurants are your thing

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. Located 10 minutes from the train station and just off Market Square, our Zizzi in Hitchin is the perfect spot to take a break from wandering around the lavender fields. Run by a team of locals who pride themselves on giving friendly home-style service, what more reason could you need to book a table? Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
