Our beautifully refurbished new restaurant is now open! The restaurant's new design pays homage to local institution, the Black Rock Lido, demolished in 1978 due to the Marina’s development. This was a prominent feature on the Marina and designer Cat Sims has used art deco influences to recreate its beauty and add a sense of nostalgia to the Marina boardwalk. Our elegant and modern restaurant is set in the heart of the Brighton Marina with stunning views of the waterfront and close to the cinema. The restaurant is inviting and warm with a friendly relaxed atmosphere. We have an outside seating area so you can enjoy a glass of wine in the sun, watch the yachts come and go and enjoy some excellent Italian food.

I'm vegan and chose Zizzi's because they have a vegan menu. The food was great - the vegan option being really thoughtful and delicious and the other pizzas and pasta very good. But it's the service that makes the difference, the manager was exceptional spending time talking about other vegan establishments in Brighton and making us feel so welcome. A great place for an evening meal.

We arrived at Zizzi at 12 noon as booked. They weren't quite open as late delivery. They didn't seem to know we had booked a table but it was ok as they weren't busy. We waited a very long time to be asked if we wanted drinks. They had run out of nuts to have with our drinks. They had run out of lasagne which one of us ordered. They had run out of low alcohol beer . All & all a bit of a disaster but the waitress was lovely. So not a great experience. Also very overpriced. Not very big portions either. Not sure if we will go again.

Staff were friendly and the food we had was good but we were disappointed with the number of menu items that were not available and toilets could do with an upgrade (some don't lock...)

We were very pleased with Zizzi at the Marina in Brighton. The server was very good and made sure my son'a peanut allergy was taken into account when ordering. The food was very good and overall is was a very enjoyable experience.

Service was slow,but we were not in too much of a hurry. Once the team got going they were good and smiles always are much more palatable!

Very average experience. Lots of waiting about. We sat down at 2.30
I felt staff more interested in tidying up than service. My king praws looked as though
They had been lying about since the morning and not well prepared. I was not seated when main dish served
The piece of Parmesan was left on the table with grater for me to do myself, conjures up all
Kinds of visions of who might have had their hands on it befor lol.

We took advantage of the sunny weather and sat outside. A good menu with veg and gluten free options. The staff seemed a little stressed on the day we visited but overall a good experience. Check ooline for money off vouchers first. We got 25% off food.

This Zizzi was very quiet and lacking ambience. However the food was good and the service was great. We asked for some music as it was deadly quiet in their but this was apparently not possible.

Zizzi Brighton Marina - great location - welcoming staff and decent Italian grub. Only downside - all the seafood with pastas and risotto was off that night. Great value though with their offer

Zizzi Brighton Marina - as always welcoming, attentive staff and hearty standard Italian fare from this above average chain. Calamari was a little on the tough side this time and our daughter said the chicken and mushroom risotto was a bit too thick and stodgy compared to other visits, but good value for a family Sunday lunch and with lovely views onto the Marina who can complain?.

Zizzi, brighton. This chain provide good tasty italian food for a reasonable price, I had a vegetarian option pizza which was delicious and good value. The bill between the four of us was very reasonable, including a bottle of wine. Service was quick and pleasant and the ambience relaxing. Would come again.

Amazing little restaurant. Didn't look like much from the outside, but once inside it was warm cosy and welcoming. A very nice atmosphere.

The food was amazing 10/10
I had a lasagne and it was the best I have ever had.
My companions had the buffalo steak which was perfectly cooked and the chicken dish.

The prices are definitely reasonable for the quality of the food and service.

Would definitely recommend to anybody.

We have had some better meals here. The quality was very off on this visit. The seafood risotto was very overcooked and watery and little seafood in evidence. The friendly service and lovely view of the marina almost made up for it though!

We went to Zizzi's Brighton Marina on Saturday afternoon. The service was fantastic and so was all of our food. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend this. Shame it was windy and raining as if the sun had been out we would of sat outside and had a fantastic view over the marina. We will definitely be back again.
