This new restaurant has stunning views of the river and Cutty Sark and is perfectly located for the Thames Clipper and the Olympic events of 2012. The intriguing nautical themes of the restaurant have been illustrated by Fresh Talent Collective member Sarah-Jayne Guest. Choose to dine with views of the kitchen, in the mezzanine bar or on the Promenade with views of the river. We’ll see you there!

This was our fourth visit to a Zizzi restaurant and whilst being perfectly acceptable, the food did not quite measure up to the higher standards set by the other three restaurants. That said we would use again if in the Greenwich area.

Me and my partner come here regularly because we live so locally and love the menu, however the Greenwich branch cannot handle it when it is busy and to be honest the service isn't GREAT even when it's not busy, the food is always left on the counter and waiters just walk past and ignore it.

Last week when we visited we had a booking, when we arrived was told by the manager that we didn't have a booking because it wasn't on the system. I showed her the confirmation email but we were still treated as though we were lying. The restaurant was super busy but we were seated upstairs, our waitress was really nice and helpful BUT the food took an hour to come out.

Starter and desserts was really good, I ordered a lamb shank for my main meal however it was cold on both occasions, the first one didnt even look cooked. Waitress really looked after us, would go back but wouldn't order the lamb shank

Disappointed with this restaurant. Service was terribly poor, waitresses completely lost in the venue. Food was good whenever it came.
When we were finishing last drink we were invited to pay the bill and leave as they wanted to close the place.
I would not recommend this restaurant

Disappointingly, despite Zizi being active on OpenTable, the restaurant in Greenwich had no record of our booking and no table was available. Luckily, the team there found a table for us but were not particularly happy given how busy it was. Turns out we were not the only ones with this booking issue via OpenTable app.

Good service by a new girl, the restaurant tables by the window seats could do with some TLC as this has obviously been an amazing restaurant during its time of reopening with the new decor. The food was amazing as always xx

It was all about the view which is amazing.
The food and service were ok. What you would expect. The top terrace and view across the Thames is the reason to go.

The menu is great if you have allergies - I had a vegan gluten free pizza! The menu was extensive.
We visited with a small noisy child and the waitress was great with him and provided crayons etc.
The only down side of the restaurant was that the food service was painfully slow, I can only imagine that the kitchen was understaffed.
If the speed of service improved then it's a great value restaurant with excellent views and reasonable food.

When we arrived our booking wasn't on the list. I showed them the email confirmation and after some discussion they agreed to give us a table outside. Food was lovely. Views fantastic. Service average.

we arrived on time to eat before Gypsy Kings concert but our booking appeared to be lost
a table was found but restaurant was busier than the few staff could cope with. The brushetta was made with tined tomatoes and we were asked what we wanted for desert before our cold main courses arrived. We charged for a bottle of wine we ordered but never arrived. Setting was spoilt by inadequate staff. Concert was good though.

Sunday night family dinner. Epic fail to choose Zizzi in Cutty Sark Greenwich. First of all booking via TopTable didn't go through so when we arrived they didn't have our names...oopsy!
Were seated upstairs in cramped room. Nice view - that's all. Our table even didn't have 4 chairs so the waitress had to pull one emergency chair from the outside balcony. Super uncomfortable ice cold metal chair . Rest of us had really weird chairs fit for a fisherman...
So we got menu, kiddies got incomplete kids pack and we were waiting, waiting and waiting [all this while being thirsty and hungry]. After 15mins of being ignored by stuff we just grabbed our coats and left for fab meal at Frankie&Bennies next door.
Shame, good location, bad service..

A rather small branch conveniently situated for greenwich sightseeing, Thames Clipper, etc. I took my grandchildren for lunch prior to an afternoon pantomime at Greenwich Theatre. It ticks all the boxes for a relatively quick and tasty meal. The staff are very friendly and helpful, particularly with young children. The pizzas are ok, inasmuch as they are served fresh. If I really wanted to find fault, I would say the bases should be crispier and I would have liked to see the children's menu include a soft drink as this bumps the price up considerably unless you order tap water! Overall, fine to satisfy little people's appetites.

My husband and I both ordered a starter followed by a piza but could only make our way through half the pizza but zizzi very kindly gave us a box to take the rest home in.

The restaurant is nice and was quite busy. The service and food are good (though you don't go there for fine dining), it's convenient for a low key dinner or weekend lunch. The plus side is the location: great surroundings facing the Cutty Sark and the Thames, next to Greenwich market and Greenwich Park.

What sets this restaurant apart from other similar pizza/pasta chain restaurants is the views of the Thames; also the service was very good here. This is a very good spot to take a break for lunch whilst visiting Greenwich.

So I went here on Valentines with my husband as i missed another booking at my preferred restaurant. It has 3 floors so I asked to be seated on the top floor as there are view of the river and the cityscape. We has a 3 course valentines menu for £20 which was such good value. The food came out quite quickly and the super-food salad with chicken was amazing!

The ambiance could have been better as it wasn't very romantic. As they were going with a nautical theme the chairs were like nautical directors chairs which were quite low for the table height and not "restaurant" comfy.

But all in all i would go back for Sunday lunch or something but not for a meal out on date night.

Unfair to review this restaurant as we were unable to eat here. We booked a table via Toptable and this was confirmed, but when I called the restaurant they were unable to accommodate the booking and therefore we had to dine elsewhere.

After booking a table in advance, when we got there they told us their system was down so didn't receive our booking. So they offered us a table and told us we'd have to leave in an hour as the table was booked for then. Then when the waiter came they also advised us we had to be gone In an hour, rather than take our order.
The waiter was rude and abrupt. The food was okay through and we sat on the top floor with great views over the Thames.

Zizzi overall are great restaurants. This one lets the side down.
