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 on Magdalene Square, opposite St Mary's church, this old Tudor school house is beautiful, retaining all of its original features with high vaulted ceilings and arched windows over two floors. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. And if you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.

“Food good although service wasnt up to scratch”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Food is well worth the price your paying with the offers availible however if i was paying full price theres far better Italains out there.

2 main meal for 12.95 is spot on and well worth the price your paying.

However i felt the service slow and the dinning area overcrowded and a bit close for comfort to others. This took away the personal factor considering the couple to the right of us was about 1 meter away.

“rude,not bothered and 'we want to go home' from the staff”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Myself and my partner decided to go and have a bite to eat on Christmas eve with 2 friends. We called and asked if there was a table free for 8.15 they went to see and came back and said they could 'squeeze us in' when we got there the place was empty minus two tables so to start off with we were shocked why we were 'squeezed in'. We sat down and our friend asked if he got his NHS 10% discount. When the waitress came back and said yes we asked if we showed it at the end or when we make our order and she rudely looked at my friend and said ' I have seen it now just wait and order your food' and walked off.

We looked at the menu and saw that they did an amazing deal of 5 dishes for £18 so we decided to order 10 dishes to share between us. The food came out quickly and the food was amazing. While eating the tables left which left the 4 of us. Being Christmas eve we appriciated that they would like to go home a little ealrier than the 11 that they said they closed so after eating our dinner we asked for our bill. We were giving our bill which came to £54 with the 10% deiscount. When we questioned why it was not the set price we were rudely told that we have been giving 10% off that should be enough and to stop moaning. When we told them that we had been charged for 10 seperate dishes the waiter turned around and told us that it was Christmas eve and the till did not want to work like they did not want to work either. We turned to the manager for her to say that she would minus it off the till but the till would be down at the end of the shift as she cant be bothered to put it through the till as she wanted to go home (bearing in mind they closed at 11pm and this was 9.30 pm)

Will NOT be going back, went for our Christmas meal at start of december and recieved rude service. The sad thing is the food is amazing just the waiting staff and manager has no people manners.

“Keep coming back!”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

It's the best of the "Italian chains" great atmosphere and friendly staff. No complaints with the food at all but the desserts are not especially great.

The design of the restaurant is impressive and I have not yet had a bad meal from here. Great value for money!
