Zonzo restaurant is a bit of true Italia right in London. Here’s some friendly advice – only come to Zonzo if you’re ready for a superb Italian experience in a family-style setting at a price that won’t upset your pocket. The stucco walls, wooden seating, Sicilian mural, and authentically warm welcome all set the tone for pure enjoyment. Signature dishes include Napoleonic pizzas from the wood-fired oven and the myriad pastas, especially the tagliatelle and the lasagne Zonzo style. The regional Italian wines match the vibrant flavours perfectly.

The home made Lasagne was complemented with a creamy tomato sauce, well worth trying. A comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with friendly service.

This was a second visit. The first, a year ago, was memorable for how bright and cheerful the restaurant was, with young cheerful staff and very good food. So we went back, but were disappointed. The food was no better than ok, the service was slow, gone were the cheery young waitresses to be replaced by older staff who could barely raise a smile, and the lighting was so poor it was almost dark at the back when we left.

Disappointing. Pizzas made with very cheap ingredients and some of the worst wine I have tasted for £25 a bottle. Situated in an unpleasant area with staff who were rude at times. Saved only by the cammoraderie of other customers

Night before marathon . Me and my family were down from sheffield staying in a nearby hotel .
A number of major issues -1) they had lost our reservation and so had to squeeze us onto a tiny table 2) horrendous service - had to wait 10 Mins for a menu - over an hour for one simple starter (brischetta) 3) they lost the order for our mains and so we then had to wait a further hour for our second course 4) at no point was there an apology or acknowledgement of the issues. We refused to pay the 12.5% service charge - all they did was give us one free bottle of water to take away. A dire experience , although the food (when it came) was ok

Lovely to visit a restaurant with plenty of options for meat lovers which also spoils the vegetarians for choice - husband happy, me happy, neither of us had to compromise. Proper table linen and excellent service too.

Where do I start... Myself and my partner booked Zonzo based on the menu and pictures on the website. What a mistake that was. From the moment we got there the entire experience was a disaster. Firstly, on arrival after booking through Open Table they appeared to not have any record of this and after showing the hostess my booking confirmation we were asked to wait for a table to become available. Once seated we were in what can only be the smallest corner in the restaurant. We may as well of been on a group date with the couple next to us as we were sitting shoulder to shoulder with them. The food tasted as if it had been microwaved and was disgusting and the service was appalling. Zonzo is so over priced it is outrageous. For 2 basic starters, mains and 1 drink each it was nearly £200 (of which service charge of 12.5% is not optional). If you are looking for a nice Italian, this is NOT the place to go. If anything, I wish I didn't pay for this experience and would hope no one else does.

Although the dress code is apparently business casual, most were very casual. Very few tables for 2, and although empty the owner wanted to seat us at the back rather than with a window view so it felt like it's purely a money maker rather than a fine dining restaurant. It was nice but removing some of the tables to make the place feel more intimate would definitely be recommended.

Nous avions réservé pour le soir de Noel.
Le service a été très long 3 heures , pour un repas d'une qualité médiocre mais facturer comme un vrai repas de Noel.
Le personnel et le responsable étaient dépassés mais continuaient à accepter les clients qui n'avaient pas réserver.
Ils n'ont même été capable de nous trouver un taxi.
De plus le quartier est moyen, Je déconseille ce restaurant.

Staff and service were fabulous. So friendly and accommodating.
My problem was I am celiac and can’t eat gluten. They had a gluten free menu but it wasn’t gluten free entirely. They checked everything with the chef but the kitchen is small so I think cross contamination happened. If u r not gluten free this is an excellent restaurant to go to.

The food at Zonzo was ok. It wasn't great but it also wasn't the worst I've had. I expected more since it claims to be authentic Italian cuisine. There was only one cook and it took a very long time to receive our food. We were the only customers there on a Thursday night and it seemed that carry out/delivery orders were being cooked first. Once we received our food many of the pasta dishes needed seasoning. The chicken and salmon were both pretty good though. It was a decent evening out but I likely will not go back to Zonzo on my next trip to London.

I've passed the restaurant every day on my way to work, and I don't know why I haven't tried their food sooner! After seeing a few odd reviews online, I cannot understand why they would say such a thing; that I had to write one myself. From the moment I stepped inside to the final cheque, i can honestly say say Zonzo exceeded all expectations. The food was beyond delicious, the staff were attentive and friendly, and the service was exceptional. They did not let my glass stay empty for more than a minute, and the only thing i could see upon every staff's face was a smile, and nothing less. I got a warm Italian welcome, and the food took me right back to Florence.This has become one of my favourite restaurants, and I can't wait to take everyone i know there! It's the perfect place for a cute date night with your loved one, but sophisticated enough for a business meal. Definitely try the chicken burger, or the seafood Linguini- you won't be disappointed.

Based on reviews by other people I thought this would be a relatively good value place to eat near where I was staying.... but I couldn't be have been more wrong, everything was poor about the experience. It took about 10 minutes to get a drink, before they even took the order. The food was just packed with huge lumps of garlic, to presumably disguise the fact that the chef had no idea what he was doing. Further to this, I then had to virtually wave a waitress down to get another drink after sitting there parched for what felt like an eternity. Then to top it all off I had to put up with a fat, balding German/Dutch man watching me take every bite of my meal. If you like poor service, food that has been laced with garlic, and a strange ambience this is the place for you.

We found this place near our hotel (Hilton London Metropole) by following yelp reviews, and we weren't disappointed! The ambience is great -- small and cozy, with lovely wall decorations. The wait staff were very helpful, and the waiters brought homemade bread and fresh olives free each time we went. Both times we went, we ended up getting the same thing for the main meal (pizza for me, chicken for my husband) because it was so good, and then gorgeous desserts. Highly recommended especially: the panne cotta.

We were warmly received and well attended - cheerful and without fuss. Delicious olives, excellent prosciutto and I can honestly say that at Zonzo I ate the best ravioli I have ever eaten in my life - and I lived in Italy for three years. At £29 for a bottle the Vermentino was pricey but, I have to say, as good as you'll get anywhere. (Good general price-range for wines.) Excellent coffee.

It was a special occasion and we had a splendid time.
You should go!
