Located in the West End of Edinburgh at the end of Princes Street and close to the elegant George Street within easy access to all of the city's main attractions, this restaurant is perfect for an intimate meal for two, business lunch or a family meal before the theatre, a destination for the evening, a starting or finishing point for the night. The restaurant is beautiful but small, so we strongly advise booking ahead.

    Food and service good if not outstanding. Main criticism is that the RESTAURANT DID NOT HAVE MY BOOKING. Fortuantely it was not full and we were accommodated without difficulty.

    Very slow service, one meal wrong for the birthday boy and the pizzas were mostly bare bread, a small amount of sauce mostly piled up at the crusts and small dollops of cheese. Having come to zizzis for years we will NOT be rushing back

    After being seated we waited an unacceptable amount of time for our drinks order to be taken and that was only after I had got the waiters attention. Service generally slow. Overall the food was good though.

    Lovely food - asked the waitress for my chicken to come on a hot plate. She said they did not have any plate warmers. I pointed out they had open pizza ovens and could the chef put my plate there for a minute to warm it up. I hate hot food on a cold plate - the food goes cold quickly and spoils the whole evening for me. However my food arrived on a hot plate - it was very good and stayed hot the entire time I was eating - will done - pity I had to ask for a hot plate in the first place though.

    There is nothing better than being recognised by staff and treated well. Tim, Anna and the chef (sorry, I don't know his name) who made my delicious risotto made my quick pre-theatre dinner completely stress-free. The chef beamed from ear-to-ear when I took a moment to go to the open kitchen to thank him. It the little things that make the world a better place :)

    Zizzi's is the only place I know where you can select courses from a proper allergens-related menu (gluten-free, dairy-free, etc.). And the staff know to take these things seriously. My risotto was prepared without butter or cheese and was simply *delicious*. Superb :)

    We arrived a liitle early for our 'after the rugby' meal but this was no problem even though the 2 old ladies at our original window table were not finished with it. The staff found us another (by the kitchen) and made us very welcome. The restaurant was quite busy with a large group, families and couples but the staff coped well. The food came quickly and my classic funghi pizza was better than I've had at Pizza Express and my husband's rustica primavera pizza left no room for dessert. Very enjoyable, good value for money, will definitely go back. Was able to book this restaurant on top table even though the restarant booking system said it was full.

    The food & the service were good. However, the restaurant appears to be the place of choice for hen parties and groups of teens. We were there for a pre theatre meal so we were not staying long - but the noise would not encourage you to linger anyway. If you were in a large party it probably is the place to go as the kitchen & serving staff seem to manage that well.

    We attended Zizzi's on Mothers Day primarily because we knew they would serve food everyone would like. The food was good and not expensive. The service was very good and we felt very well looked after. I would recommend Zizzi's for lunch or early evening meal. Not sure it has the ambience for romantic dinner but it does cater for most tastes. One comment re Mothers Day. They had a 3 course offer which we felt was too much to eat at lunchtime and not great value against the normal menu. We would have appreciated an option for 2 courses

    We have been to Zizzi's in several locations before, including this one, so know what to expect. It isn't fine dining, but the food was good, and the service by our waitress was really excellent. The restaurant was full, so the atmosphere was quite buzzy. all in all, very satisfied

    Zizzis beats the other Italian chains hands down - in terms of quality of ingredients, interesting menu and wine list. As usual it was a crowd pleaser - food very good, wine lovely and service always friendly. Cicchetti always my favourite and the platter of antipasti and I love the spicy salami and n'duja pizza thought it is seriously strong!
