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. Windsor's Zizzi is practically in the shadow of the Queen's town residence, Windsor Castle. It's also conveniently located for shopping and the

Staff were very friendly and attentive. However, pizza and pasta were worse than pre-prepared ones you can buy from a supermarket. Toilet facilities require cleaning and regular checking (the smell was noticeable in the dining room!)

Great service. They didn’t have our booking when we arrived but it wasn’t a problem even though they were busy. Service throughout was great and the usual good quality / value food from Zizzi. The waiter interacted really well with the kids.

A good evening overall. We were seated almost immediately, Initially we were led to a table in the basement seating area but we asked for another table as the stairs leading to the were a bit steep and narrow and my partner was struggling with them. The request was accommodated without any fuss even though it was busy evening. We wanted to order of the valentines menu but one of the mains item was out not available so the we had to ask for the manager if we could substitute for with an item from the a la carte menu, again this request was accommodated with a little bit of fuss. It was a busy night so noise levels were high but that was to be expected and the food took a little while longer to arrive but was hot and fresh.

No milk or vanilla ice cream which wasn’t good for coffee or puddings. Wrong garlic bread came out had to wait for new one. Lasagne burnt.

Unfortunately the food was quite poor, the prawns we had smelt quite fishy and seemed like they were nearly off. The pasta I had was also not very tasty. The service was good, especially the waitress who served us who was very nice.

The restaurant didn’t have our booking, which meant by the time they had found a table and laid it, out meal was rushed as it was a pre-theatre booking. Apart from that was lovely food.

Despite it being very busy, we received a warm welcome from all staff, from the server who seated us to the other staff we passed on our way to our table to the server who took our order and looked after us throughout our meal.
Great food, as always (Chicken salad, sea bass, 'special of the day' wild boar & chorizo pizza, Sicilian lemonade and 'Deeply Rooted' pressé).
Server informed me that the sea bass would take a while, just so that I was aware, and checked on us periodically, despite being busy with other customers.
Felt well looked-after and really enjoyed the meal.

Fancied an evening out in Windsor. Lots of Italian style restaurants to choose from but decided on Zizzi following multiple good reviews - we weren't disappointed. Good service, nice atmosphere, kid friendly and good food...

I am sure it would have been fine if it had not been closed for refurbishment. Opening again on the 12th Oct I think it said. I think we should have been told, however we went to Prezzo next door which was OK.

Have eaten here before. It is a nice Zizzi right opposite the castle, not far from the shops and close to the theatre as well. Part of a large chain of course, but reliable food.

We booked table for 4 and got a slightly cramped table in the window which was fine. Service was efficient and friendly enough without being great or overbearing. The food was served quickly which was good as we had shopping to do before the Panto. Pizza were OK, child's Spagghetti Bolognese was quite a good size and disappeared inside a 7 year olds tummy quickly (he is an expert on Spag Bol and said it was great so would trust his judgement as he has eaten it in some great Italian restaurants before!!). the Seafood Rissotto was OK although a bit tasteless which was a shame. Overall it was convenient and would go back if we needed a pre-Theatre meal again.

We'd cycled 100 miles and needed a good solid meal. The service was quick and friendly, food was yummy and in generous portions. The restaurant was fully booked which because its quite small meant it was quite noisy. Best for groups of friends/family rather than a date/

We booked a table for seven for lunch on Easter Sunday. The restaurant was light and airy and the atmosphere very pleasant. Zizzi Slough was busy without being too noisy, which was a positive, as it enabled us to have a conversation without needing to shout. The food was lovely and the service was excellent.

We have dined at Zizzi's before and on this occasion it was a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy and also very noisy. We had to wait quite a while for our main course as there was some confusion in the kitchen regarding some orders. Pizzas were very nice and full of toppings. We were served by Maria who looked after us really well. Overall a pleasant experience.

Zizzi Slough isn't, it's ZIzzi Windsor, which is a bit confusing. Although Top Table says last reservation is 10pm, they happily seated us at 10.10 after the theater 50 yards down the road, and we had a great dinner of smoked trout salad followed by sea bass baked in foil with lemon, calamari mussels and tomato. This was a perfect light dinner for late evening. The service was impeccable, and overall good value with a nice ambience.

This was my second visit to Zizzi's in WIndsor (it's not in Slough...) Service was attentive but the food wasn't as good as in my previous visit. I had the spaguetti with prawns and cherry tomatoes which was luke warm and with not much flavour. Overall, very average.
