Hi, we visited this venue on Tuesday evening and I must say we were thoroughly disappointed. The food was great but I've got to be honest the service was atrocious. Not only did the guy not pay us any attention other than the pure basics but he just stank of cigarettes. Several times I noticed he'd disappeared only to return... More

Food is good, However the service is a little bit slow. For me it is a little bit pricey for the pizzas and the pastas. But for an evening out with the family for a couple of pizzas and some drinks it is nice, but not mind blowing.

Waited 40mins for someone to take our order. Another 30mins for the main course to arrive and 20mins for dessert. The staff show little understanding of dietary requirements and the importance of this. Only when we asked twice did we finally realise the chosen dish was unsuitable for my partner. Also £3 for 2 tablespoons of nuts is a joke.... More

Being a Vegan and trying to eat as Ethically, Cruelty Free and responsibly as I can I am always looking for Vegan restaurants or mainstream restaurants that offer Vegan choices other than a "salad" or "jacket potato" lol Naturally after hearing that Zizzi not only sell vegan mains but also sides, starters and even desert too (which is a total...

Hubby is vegan so that can be tricky sometimes but this place has a fab vegan menu, so that keeps him happy. Kids absolutely love coming here too, we usually go on a Sunday and the waiter is awesome (sorry can't remember his name) but he is amazing with the kids, interacting but not intruding, he's got the balance perfect....

Service was very slow on a sat night, drinks were given over other guests as was food. It was very noisy and we struggled to hear our party of family members. Food was generally average but nothing special

Impressive. We shall look for this chain again. Overnight visitors but chosen by friends who live locally. The menu was very different from most restaurants we use. Very enjoyable food. A Saturday night and clearly requires a booked table. Prices seemed very reasonable compared with our Surrey pricing.

Went here for dinner last night and had a quite enjoyable evening. Although the food was slow coming out, the service was quick where it could be and friendly at all times. I believe the waitresses name was Melissa. I think she is a real credit to your restaurant.

Haven't been to Zizzi for a few years but saw they had a new menu and thought a short drive to try them out was worth it. And it was! There was lots on the menu that we both were tempted by and eventually settled on a mushroom and mozzarella bruschetta and a butterfly king prawn in garlic and chilli... More

Food here was great. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Nice clean venue and it is also really large so your not sitting on top of other diners

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.Located 10 minutes from the train station and just of 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.
