Zizzi is delighted to announce a fresh and funky redesign of its central Brighton location to reflect this vibrant town. The restaurant, established some 7 years ago, is in the heart of the historic Lanes area of Brighton, in amongst the fabulous maze of twisting alleyways, antique shops and boutiques. The restaurant unveiled it's new look on 15th October. Zizzi has collaborated with local artists; illustrator Rosie Shorter and Photographer Moose Azim, to reflect their visual interpretation of this diverse town and its particular character. Downstairs the themes of the beach and outdoors influence the colour palette with lamps resembling clouds and clever use of pebbles which feature strongly throughout the restaurant. Upstairs the photo montage helps to transform the dining area into a sophisticated yet edgy space. The black, white and raspberry theme of the Tom Dixon mirror ball pendants are framed by carnival lights around the edge of the ceiling.

    Went to this restaurant for Valentine’s day. We had a bit of trouble at first with our reservation not being on the list, but as soon as we mentioned that we had booked via open table the waiter showed us to our seats. The service was excellent, food choices were also great, and the ambience was really fitting for valentine’s day.

    Booked this table for a night out with my partner and when we arrived there was no pizzas on the menu at all...one of the reasons we book here. On a sat night in Brighton we had no where else we could get into so had to stay...real disappointment

    Slightly alarmed when we arrived as Zizzi Brighton did not have our booking through Open Table on their list, good job I had the email with me to back up my booking. They said they were having problems with Open Table at the moment, as this had happened recently and with a very large booking; this has not given me much confidence in booking through Open Table for the future. The evening luckily continued with brilliant service and very enjoyable food. Thank you Zizzi Brighton for your attentive and fast service, we will be back.

    Visited Zizzi in Brighton for business lunch. I asked to sit at a quite corner and waiter gladly did so. Lunch trade was average, great service but can be difficult to find waiters at times. Food has great flavours and pizza was lovely, but my pasta is too much of al-dante as they say it. I would visit again but would avoid pasta next time.

    The restaurant was busy on the evening before the Brighton Half Marathon but we still managed to secure a booking an hour before dinner. We were met by very friendly FOH and waiting staff. We started with mixed olives and goats cheese with sweet onion reduction that was very tasty and a perfect entre for the mains to come. We shared two risotto dishes, one with seafood and one with chicken and wild mushroom. The ambience was great and the evening very good value for money

    We went to Zizzis in Chester last night and had a lovely meal but two of the main course portions were quite small and my daughter and friend came away hungry. However the service and staff were very friendly and efficient even though I could only see three of them having to serve the whole restaurant.

    As usual Zizzi's did not disappoint, great food for good prices and a busy and festive atmosphere. My only disappointment this time, as a regular visitor, the staff are usually very friendly and the service is esxceptional, yet this time they chose to be a bit offish and unattentive and even scoffed within easy earshot because we hadn't left enough of a tip.....a tip that we were sorting out while they were openly rude. This one off occasion will not put me off though!

    Zizzi in Brighton is a great place for a fresh pizza, pasta, or risotto. Many other meat dishes on the menu, and salalds,of course, and a pretty comprehensive selection of wines. For a quick business lunch or a chinwag lunch with your best friend it's a good place to meet. Friendly staff and piping hot food makes for a very pleasant meal.

    Zizzi's Brighton- haven't been here for a long time and was really pleasantly surprised. Service was efficient and staff very friendly and helpful with food suggestions. Food absolutely delicious; my friend had a pizza which was huge and I had a salad which was one of the best I have ever had. The best of all the Italians I have been to in Brighton.

    Zizzi restaurant in Brighton is just a couple of minutes walk from the sea front. It is advisable to book in advance as it can get very busy. The food is up to the Zizzi standard, hot and made with fresh ingredients whenever possible. My wife and I go to Zizzis in different areas around where we live, and we have never had a bad meal. They had unfortunately run out of my favorite wine, but a substitute was reccomended which was every bit as good. a restaurant chain I am happy to reccomend.
