Zizzi Port Solent is located on the boardwalk of Port Solent marina, with fabulous views of the marina and the surrounding area. We have a large, heated, outside seating area so you can enjoy a glass of wine in the sun and one of our fantastic Antipasto and garlic breads share with a friend. We look forward to seeing you for a quiet meal or big birthday party, inside or outside...the choice is yours.

As usual yet to disappoint us. Good environment and atmosphere at Port Solent, only down side I think Zizzi need to offer variety from their menu, say seasonal menu.

Was a little sad had booked it on opentable and when we got there it was closed we were really disappointed as no one had let us know it had been closed due to a technical fault so had to find somewhere else at sort notice and it was 8pm so was a little tricky as all busy! Shame as we love it there and it was our first wedding anniversary!

Unfortunately the online booking did not get through to the restaurant, which was very embarrassing. The staff found my wife and me a table but the embarrassed start spoilt the evening.

Firstly we wernt on the pre booked list, then sat down and took 10 mins for us to order drinks/food , waited 35 mins and couldn't get the waiters attention then out food come out before we even had a drink, they forgot a side dish with our food which we told them and took another 10 mins to come out to us, to which when the waiter took our plates she dropped the knife on me, very slow service, rude, would not come back again

The food and service were great and we enjoyed our Saturday lunchtime dining experience here. We were celebrating a family member's 85th birthday and he found the meatballs a little spicy and he also had trouble hearing, despite the fact we were in the quietest part of the restaurant. I think it's just a bit loud and clattery for elderly people, but the rest of us enjoyed it.

I've probably eaten here 3 times and despite my friends not having rave reviews about this Zizzi restaurant, it's the first time I've had a bad experience.

Waiter service was poor and very unknowledgeable. While a friend & I awaited the rest of our party we were not asked if we wanted a drink despite being sat down for around 10 mins, we had to catch their attention & ask. Our voucher code was also not accepted as it apparently was not valid, yet this was not stated on the T&C's, so we asked to speak with the manager who within 5 seconds said our discount code was ok to be accepted.

Meals took ages to be served, around 40 minutes and I was provided with the wrong meal. As we had already waited a long time and I was starving... I ate what I was provided with, though it definitely was not as tasty as what I was hoping for.

Real shame as I usually love Zizzi's but unfortunately the Port Solent restaurant has let them down & I will think twice about going here again.

We arrived one hour late - a group of seven for lunch on Easter Sunday. The place wax awash with diners. Unfazed the Manager calmly took stock of the situation - placed two tables together and within 3 minutes we had drinks and activity packs for the children. How great was that ?
The menu was wide varied and VERY child focussed, whilst also providing fully for the decerning adult.
Well done Zizzis Port Solent for finding solutions not problems.
If only I had remembered the discount voucher !

We were looking for somewhere for a quick lunch spot and this is perfect for that. Although there is nothing special about the food, it is always consistently good and you know what you are getting.

Once they found our booking (different system because it came through top
Table) they got us to a table and everything was great from there. Food was to a good standard. Service was very good from enthusiastic young people and Port Solent is a very nice venue. Only slight negative was they ran out of one dessert we wanted.

Not a particularly warm welcome nor attentive service. Around 5 main meals sold out on the menu which left a limited choice of pasta or pizza. Disappointing.

We were given an outside table, as requested. Drinks and starters cam promptly. However, bottled lager and glass were warm! The waitress changed them immediately when asked. however, second drink was exactly the same, so again we requested cold lager and a cold glass! Then waited 1 hour for main course. When it finally arrived pizzas good, salad poor and the pasta - bad - overcooked! We complained about the pasta, and were not charged for it. A nice place, but too few staff and no attention to detail - disappointing.

Zizzi at Port Solent were very accommodating when we arrived early because there had been a mix up with our cinema tickets.
Our food was tasty. However I would have liked a little more topping as the pizza was a bit dry.
The staff were very friendly with good service. I liked the layout of the restaurant but it needed a few more people in it for its size, but we did go early & it is just after New Year & a Tuesday .
