Our recently refurbished Zizzi, situated just off Baker Street, near the lovely Marylebone High Street, is a hidden gem in London. During the day, it's bustling with office workers and tourists, and in the evening, it's a favourite for cinema-goers and locals. Great Italian food - including pizza cooked in a wood-burning oven, and great service, guarantees a great experience every time.

The Baker Street area has lots of restaurants across the spectrum, with Tussauds nearby, the London Zoo not so faraway, and hungry tourists abounding. Zizzi is mid-range. It's big and friendly, with a large menu to match and an inventive menu of Italian and near-Italian dishes. Tables by the window endure less noise than those in the middle. My bufala caprese was imaginatively garnished with basil, and the mozzarella was plentiful. The tomatoes allegedly came from the Isle of Wight. My companion was greatly taken with the the giant olives, pits not withstanding. She followed with a porcini dish and pronounced it satisfying. My pasta had pulled venison in it, which was a first where I was concerned, and there was plenty of it. It's a relaxed place and a perfect post to watch the bustle of Paddington Street. The Montepulciano helped the meal no end. Yes, I was quite happy with it.

We booked at last minute without fuss. The staff were excellent as was the food and service. We couldn't fault it. Shame about the people on the table next to us who seemed to be out to ruin everyone's night, especially the staff, by complaining about everything!

They were great with getting us our food quickly. We were in a rush due to Regents Park Theatre tickets and had started a little late due to the poor weather. Food was delicious. I would definitely come back, again.

There was one man running the whole restaurant apart from a bar man and a woman who appeared to be doing hardly any work. The man was running around doing everything so we didn't expect a perfect service however the was no personalisation at all. I booked with a note that it was my partners bday but nothing was done to make this special for her. The starters were nice but my main was a pizza that was quite dry.

We had a good night because we were happy in general but it could have been a lot better

One meal was late and when chicken was cut in to it was clearly undercooked. Decided not to reorder because by the time staff acted , everyone else had finished. Did get an apology and a free bottle of wine. When got bill , found only a 50% discount offered for a meal that wasn't touched! Overall a very poor experience

Love the new look and new layout. A lot warmer in feel and definitely warmer than of all winters!
Like the new calzone with porcini and giant ravioli.
Shame... Gelato flavours were limited last night as none was delivered...
Staff always personable and friendly. Key reason why we keep returning.

Food was good and ambiance pleasant for a light informal meal. Menu is limited unless you are looking for pizza or pasta but you can probably find something to your liking otherwise. Prices are reasonable considering location. Service, however, is poor. I booked a table but none became available until long after booking time and staff were too rushed off their feet to take much notice. They also didn't seem to want to give me my change.

Six of us had meal at Zizzi in Paddington Street in a Monday evening before going on to the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. It was fairly quiet but we were made to feel very welcome and had a good table by the window. The food was pretty good for a chain and the service friendly and efficient. We were finished in plenty of time to walk from there to the theatre, so would definitely consider eating at that venue next time we're in the area.

Zizzi's on Paddington Street has been a local institution in Marylebone for over a decade. Their pizza has always been one of the best in the over populated 'chain' market. Oven cooked hand-stretched pizzas with regular seasonal additions is something we look forward to. Their rustica - rectangle pizza has interesting topping combinations and rich depth of flavours and textures. Our favourite is the Mezzo e Mezzo. Apart from their fantastic pizzas, they also offer wonderful well-seasoned and fresh fish/seafood dishes like their morish fish stew which you can't get enough of. If there is room for dessert, Kitty's gelato and sorbetto will make the meal complete.

Better than the average Strada, my usual chain Italian of choice. Staff were friendly, menu is very varied and several special offers on which were very reasonable indeed. You know what you're getting and it was good. Although the restaurant overall looks like it could do with a good clean when you look inside the open kitchen and smell of drains downstairs by the toilets was very off putting. Understand that can be avoidable in Central London, but invest in some plug ins!

A small restaurant with lots of menus!
Not a huge vegetarian choice but something that I could eat.
Overall good value for money but I wouldn't rush back simply because of the small vegetarian choice.

Zizzi's on Paddington Street is always packed - this is probably because their pizzas are consistently well prepared, well priced and a vast place for group gathering.
Service was efficient depite the floor was packed to capacity.
Its probably not the best place for a romantic meal but a definite if you fancy a good rustica pizza and gelato!

The restaurant was obviously very popular as it was packed. And with good reason! The service and food was fantastic - the staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome in the restaurant. Although, they were a bit stretched at times and we were left waiting longer than expected at times. However, the smells coming from the open-plan kitchen were amazing and our dishes did not disappoint. Well presented, perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. Can't wait to come back!

Zizzi - Marylebone; We went for a quick meal prior to going to the cinema. We had a really good pasta but served on a cold plate!
The ambiance could be better, there is nothing to absorb sound. The place is all wood floors and tables, bare walls no fabrics. This creates a atmosphere where you can hear conversations from 3 tables away!

We arrived at the restaurant at early which was lucky as they had no record of my booking. They had one TopTable booking, but it wasn't mine. Being early, they were able to accommodate us.

Next time I will book directly with the restaurant.

Many thanks.
