About

With Oxford Street just a short walk away, Charlotte Street is set in the heart of London surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries. The restaurant looks stunning, taking inspiration from its surrounding area. It boasts original features such as ‘cloud lights’ from French lighting designer Céline Wright, representing thought bubbles synonymous with the Charlotte Street ad agencies and vintage storage units and stainless steel olive vats, giving a minimalist feel, perfectly illustrating the fashion houses of nearby Oxford Street. The restaurant also incorporates the work of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design’s student Camille Rousseau in the form of light installations, making it the ideal location for business lunches and post work socialising.

Venue was closed with no notice or notifucation. The venue was open during lunch time earlier.
This was very inconvinient and embrassing.

No contact was made!

Just on New Year's Eve we were thrown out of the restaurant at 9 pm because the kitchen had a defect.
At this point: thanks for nothing.

first table was below the air vent. The staff were very good and allowed us to move and they said they would turn off the air.

Had a great meal and lovely bottle of wine

Booked a table a couple of days before but when we arrived they had no knowledge of our booking, luckily the restaurant wasn't very busy. Unhurried service which is good, attentive staff kept us stocked with drink and food, my guests and I enjoyed our food but my wife wasn't impressed with her pasta meal, but didn't complain at the time as we were with friends, overall I'd go back and have another meal as my Rustic Pizza was delicious.

Great venue and menu choice for my sons 10th birthday with family. Choice of children's food, but also enough choice on the adults for them to choose from also.

Although they didn't know about our booking, we were seated quite quickly. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I like Zizzi because it has interesting vegan options and clearly states which wines are vegan. It is reasonably priced too.

The staff were very friendly and attentive but I was a bit disappointed in the food. Usually Zizzis is much better then this. My garlic soul bread did not taste of garlic at all. Pizzas were good.

My friend had to ask for her meal to be replaced as the beetroot in her salad was mouldy(!). Otherwise the food was good and the service very good. Lovely restaurant.

Zizzi is a large chain of Italian restaurants. Not fine dining but reliable, tasty and inexpensive. Sometimes the service leaves a bit to be desired but overall good value.

Zizzi is not a great Italian chain, but the food is edible, and they have convenient locations everywhere. If you want an ok option in Charlotte street without high expectation on food, then this is your place

Nobody else was in the restaurant at 6pm, so I can't say much about the ambience. This is probably pretty normal for Charlotte Street, but it worked in our favour for a pre-theatre meal, as the food came quickly. Decent risotto and pasta, although a little more sauce on the pasta would have been appreciated. Good value for the area.

Really enjoyed our meal at Zizi. We both had bread to start followed by pasta and a pudding. The food was speedy, good quality and tasty. The only bad point was how many tables they have. It means you feel close together and there isn't much room for the waiting staff, this was highlighted when a waitress dropped mint tea over my back and coat. When I pointed out what she had done the response was pretty lacklustre.

We arrived earlier than the booking time and staff provides us a table without waiting. My friends and I enjoyed a quite talk before the restaurant got busier. I've Been to Zizzi before and Food was lovely as always. We were happy that we weren't kick out on a busy Friday night.

Always a better lunch time meal then some of the other Italian places around. Better food and value for money. Service was a bit slow but that's expected during lunch hour.

I met my friend for lunch on a Monday and she had her little baby with her. We got a nice spot where she could have the buggy beside us. It did get very busy here, considering it was a Monday. If you're looking for somewhere that will bring your food out quickly, I would definitely recommend here.

Met up with friends at Zizzis for an informal catch up. Easy place to catch up given their selection of good pasta, pizza and other dishes. Would return due to the convenience. Also the restaurant was packed so this must be a popular branch!

Been to this Zizzi's before. Its in a nice location and a good option if you dont want to eat in Soho. Unfortunately they were under-staffed on Easter Saturday when I visited so the waiters were frazzled but they did their best and kept smiling. Food was excellent and very fast. They forgot our olives but gave us coffee on the house.
We had a nice evening there and we'll be back.
