A word from Zizzi - Newark
Italian restaurant chain Zizzi opened the doors of its very first branch in London's Chiswick in 1999. Now there are over 100 branches, all decorated in an appealing contemporary style. Wood-fired ovens, open kitchens and modern interior design with locally influenced art features make for a vibrant atmosphere. As for the food, they serve up a variety of traditional Italian dishes including all the usual suspects: salads, antipasti, pasta, pizza, calzone, risotto as well as fish and meat mains and desserts. What Zizzi really pride themselves on is sourcing good quality ingredients; salads are dressed with white balsamic vinegar from Modena, for example, and offer Goddess Olives, a variety known for their firm flesh and nutty flavour. The modestly priced wine list is dominated by Italian wines, starting at £13.45 for a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. The Newark branch of Zizzi has a very special point of difference – they have their own ghost! Don't let that scare you off, though; the ghost i

    We booked for my child's birthday. There were 5 children that day from 2-10 years old and we were accommodated very well. There was drawing for the kids, a lovely friendly atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble. we all had excellent food and the service from our waitress was very good indeed. We will definitely be back. the restaurant was welcoming and very modern. thank you

    Glo Restaurant Were a little bit apprehensive when we walked in as it was not very busy [Sunday lunchtime] however Restaurant did get busier, and at least we could hold a conversation without having to shout at each other across the table! Both food and service were excellent. Great fusion food. Would strongly recommend and will be using again.

    This is the 4th time we have visited Glo in Reading. As usual food was excellent. However, was extremely disappointed by the fact that we had gone for the all you can eat Sunday Dim Sum and were told they had run out the day before! Still had to eat from the rest of the menu which was still great!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/10/2011
    Visited Glo in Reading for the first time on 7th Oct. Early booking prior to theatre visit. Waitress was attentive and service was good. Very quiet when we were there but I suspect would be very noisy when busy. Nice selection of food - well cooked - shared mixed starters followed by the prawn mussaman in garlic loaf. Lots of things to choose from on the menu and at a reasonable price £25 including wine and tip. Would probably go again - especially for a lunchtime bite.

    The Glo Restaurant & Bar at St. Marys Butts, Reading is an experience not to be missed. Very friendly, acoomodating staff, impeccable service. The food is great - I had baked mushrooms, and the Thai Mussaman curry - prefectly authentic. Dessert - dollar bags left a bit to be desired, but I'll be back again !! Superb decor, would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good Thai / Fusion food.

    Glo Restaurant in Reading. The restaurant itself was very nicely designed. However, the food - a sort of Thai fusion - didn't really work. The resturant staff seemed inexperienced and a couple of our queries weren't dealt with. Disappointing overall.

    Food was excellent as per usual. Atmosphere and service was good including the free cocktails when we arrived. The waiter recommended the Banoffee pie, it however was not quite up to standard as the rest of the meal. The money bags,the almond tart and the chocolate box are far better.

    Zizzi in Newark is the same as Zizzi anywhere - good food in a relaxed atmosphere. The food and service were excellent, and very family friendly our waiter was great with my 20 month nephew - crayons and colouring sheet were provided as soon as we sat down so he was kept entertained until lunch arrived, which he enjoyed as much as the rest of us!.

    Myself and my boyfriend visited Glo in Reading on Thursday night. I can safely say it was one of the best meals I have had in a very very long time! We were greeted by what I am presuming was the manager who asked if we had been before. When we told her we hadnt she took the time to go through the menu with us and explain each dish which I thought was really great! I had the steak which was cooked to perfection and exactly the way I like it and the food was piping hot and tasted fresh!
