Italian
Italian restaurant chain Zizzi opened the doors of its very first branch in London's Chiswick in 1999. Now there are over 100 branches, all decorated in an appealing contemporary style. Wood-fired ovens, open kitchens and modern interior design with locally influenced art features make for a vibrant atmosphere. As for the food, they serve up a variety of traditional Italian dishes including all the usual suspects: salads, antipasti, pasta, pizza, calzone, risotto as well as fish and meat mains and desserts. What Zizzi really pride themselves on is sourcing good quality ingredients; salads are dressed with white balsamic vinegar from Modena, for example, and offer Goddess Olives, a variety known for their firm flesh and nutty flavour. The modestly priced wine list is dominated by Italian wines, starting at £13.45 for a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. This branch is right on the water in the beautiful harbour at historic St Katharine Docks, making it a firm favourite for special occasions and

Good selection of food suiting both adults and children. Helpful staff especially as they had to deal with a wheel-chair. Would certainly recommend this restaurant especially for a family party.

Modified my existing booking but the front desk could not find any record so that wasn’t a great start The guy could have made more of an effort to be friendly and/or welcoming (no eye contact when he saw us arrive and disappeared off to do something else for a couple of minutes).
Service improved as the evening went on and the food quality was excellent.
Biggest gripe is that they really cram the tables in so you feel like you’re sitting with another group.

Lovely outlook on the boats. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food was very tasty and plentiful. We particularly enjoyed the fruity balsamic vinegar with the starter. The only downside of the restaurant was that we were seated just inside the door, so every time someone came in or went out, we got a very cold draught. This was the first time we have been to a Zizzi restaurant, and would go to one again in the future.

I ordered the sea bass. It was so oily and inedible. I then ordered a desert that came with a gelato scoop that tasted like freezer. Given the extremely low quality of food, I was surprised it had that many customers. I suppose the service isn’t bad but that doesn’t make up for the low quality food.

This is a chain restaurant. The gluten free garlic bread was a hard flat mass of GF pizza dough and almost impossible to eat. Otherwise the food was fine. The view was the best part.

Food was good. Service very poor. Took 30 minutes to get our bill. Got fed up with waiting another 15 minutes to pay, and paid at the till on the way out.

Food was great but service was incredibly slow. We stood at the register trying to pay for 15 minutes... At least. Should have just walked out because they clearly didn't want to take our money.

We visited with four children for an evening meal. It was very child friendly and in a stunning location. We sat upstairs over looking the water. There was a comprehensive vegan menu as well as a children’s menu for younger children. The service was excellent and the food was great. I would recommend the fish skewer which was delicious. I would definitely return and recommend to friends. A hidden gem so close to Tower Bridge where we were staying.

An atmospheric, tranquil spot within the heart of London, tucked away from the tourist footfall, surrounded by yachts & barges. Pleasant service and enough menu choice to satisfy weary feet or anyone wanting a quiet spot to chat.

I booked a table for my husbands birthday, travelled up to London, to arrive at the restaurant to find it closed due to a gas leak. As I'd booked they had my phone number and didn't phone. Complained, got a call to apologise from the restaurant saying they will email me a voucher.... a week later still waiting for the email. I will
Be complaining again very soon!!!!

The food was great as always but we were seated right by the door which had a large queue of disgruntled customers who couldn't be seated because the restaurant had been over booked. There was always at least three people stood overlooking our table (literally a foot away) while we were eating. Also, some customers who hadn't booked were seated at much nicer tables which doesn't seem fair on those that had booked and couldn't be seated or got bad seats.

Good food, great venue, excellent service. Need to book as it gets very busy, but well worth the effort. We would go back any time.
