Top tags:

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. Local workers and residents swear by this branch of Zizzi, and its convenient location in new shopping venue Cardinal Place.

    The reservation we had made through Opentable had not been picked up by the restaurant but luckily on a very busy day and time they managed to squeeze 5 of us in! Service was good and speedy - which was fine as we were in a rush and they are very good with allergens.

    The starter (arancini) were pleasant enough. Ordered a pizza for main course which was lacklustre and dull by any standard. Service was attentive and friendly which helped but not enough for me to return any time soon.

    The sea bream dish I had was unsatisfactory. The fish was dry & the green beans were frizzled. My husband's gluten free pizza was soggy & tasteless. The puddings we ordered were not available! The waiter didn't once check whether the meal was okay! It's a few years since we visited Zizzi. It was lovely then. This visit was very disappointing especially as we were treating a friend that evening after visiting the Queens Gallery.

    Eating in Victoria, you are always going to be surrounded by people, but Zizzi's was REALLY busy. However the placement of the tables enabled us to talk to each other, without yelling. We had a very attentive waiter, but we weren't offered the "special 3 course" menu, but with so much to choose from on the main menu this might have been an added complication! We both had "hanging skewers - I had seafood, and my companion had chicken. My only downside was that the salmon lacked flavour, maybe due to under use of seasoning. The puddings were delicious... Overall a good meal at at a reasonable cost

    Decent enough meal from a chain restaurant. Not knowing the area and having a fussy wife meant we had few options but overall the setting and service was good. The food was what you’d expect from a chain and decent enough.

    Overall food and service were good. However, we initially went to the restaurant as a walk-in, but were abruptly told there were no tables available and that we would have to wait an hour. I quickly went onto Opentable and booked for 10 minutes time. We then just walked in.

    The garlic bread was tasty and not thick and heavy as is the case in some restaurants. I enjoyed my usual king prawn linguine and the service by Tomek was excellent. He was friendly and helpful and made it all seem effortless! A good pre-theatre spot as food is generally served promptly!

    Very very slow service. Quite a few people got something different from what was ordered. We came here for a pre theatre meal as I imagine a few people did but we were worried the entire time we’d be late because of how slow the service was.

    We visit this restaurant every 4-6 weeks before going to the theatre as dishes arrive fairly quickly . The food is tasty and carefully presented. Staff are usually very helpful and friendly and attentive. On this occasion our shared starter of garlic bread took a lot longer to arrive, more than 20 minutes. It also took some time to get the bill as staff were very busy. There was some confusion and delay in producing a bill as we wanted to use our online Zizzi card. Usually we enjoy coming to Zizzi and will continue to visit the Victoria Zizzi!

    Decent food, but very slow service in this branch of Zizzi, where staff were very friendly but seemingly struggling with the crowd although it wasn't totally full. The staff made a good attempt to make up for the slow arrival of food, so I may give it another try as the food was quite good and good value.

    Nice ambiance and friendly staff, although I would not say this is the best Zizzi's I've eaten at: the restaurant was very busy even at 6.30pm on a Wednesday. When we arrived our waitress only half did up our table so that we were left without cutlery, we had to ask someone to take our drinks order after 15 minutes of waiting, and we had to ask another waiter to clear our plates away. I am fairly young (22 yrs old) and often experience slower service as a result of my age when eating out, but was especially unimpressed at the disorganisation of the staff at this restaurant. On a more positive note, the pizzas we ordered were very good.

    I booked this for a business lunch and was pleasantly surprised that we were able to have our lunch without the usual over-fussing that you get by the staff in some restaurants. The food was good and hot and although the restaurant was packed and the tables quite close together, we were able to talk without feeling like others were listening in on our conversation. There was a bit of a delay in getting food to us but this was not a major problem and we were able to be in and out in under the hour. Very impressed.
