For a chain (there are 87 of them and owned by the same group as Pizza Express) the food is fairly good and the atmosphere is well done in this converted old bank.

We booked Zizzi for a works dinner and mainly just had problems with them.
First of all they had no record of the booking being taken. Luckily they were able to fit us in but on a busier night we might have all been turned away because they hadn't written down the booking properly.
The food service was very slow, and when it arrived, some of the food was badly overcooked. Some of the salads looked more like side orders than main courses, and out of a group of sixteen people, two of us sent their meals back for being far, far, far too salty. We're not normally complaining people, honest we're not. Well, not that much.
It took so long to get a dessert menu that by that stage we just gave up, paid (when we finally got the bill) and left. We won't be booking there again.
Maybe if I went to Zizzi's just with my girlfriend for a quiet meal it would be a different story but I definitely wouldn't recommend it for groups.

I see restaurnats of this chain all around London, but I have never tried them. after seeing positive reviews on it I thought I should give it a go.
The starters were nice, the garlic bread with caramelized onions tasted just great, Clamaries weren't as good though and were a very little of a portion.
The main course was fantastic, the pizza was very thin and had just that right amount of tomato sauce with plenty of cheese and toppings, pasta was cooked to perfection (just a little bit hard and not overcooked) and its sauce was very nice and spicy.
All in all I highly recommend this restaurnat.

After watching a nice movie, I decided to take advantage of my unlimited card which entitles me to 50% discount on Zizzi’s pizzas. Of I went to find a quite glamorous and nice big open spaced restaurant, where you can see the cooks cooking, with a proper tradition wooden oven.
The place was full in a Friday night but not enough to keep us from having dinner there. Everything seemed fine, but it didn’t had that Italian “taste/look” I was expecting, it just looked like a nice restaurant with no food affiliation of some sort. I only had to look at the menu to find that they do a multitude of pizzas, all looked really tasty and by the looks of the plates that were going from table to table it all looked great! So I opted for a Fiorentina pizza, the waiting period wasn’t bad and the food was really well presented, but for such a fancy restaurant my pizza didn’t look quite the deal, the spinach was frozen one, I would expect to have proper fresh spinach… but well! It still tasted good.
Carrying on, I quite liked the service, although understandingly slow they were very nice.
All in all the food wasn’t bad, but far from proper Italian, it was more like a British restaurant trying to be Italian, nothing was original and the food wasn’t up the price that they charged for it.
Even with the 50% discount it was still expensive!
I was unlucky because later on that night I got stomach upsets, and all I ate was in Zizzi’s.
It will be a while until I return there…

Converted from a former bank, but tastefully decorated and up to date decor. Very popular towards the end of the week - so you’ll need to book - nice selection of reasonably priced dishes - calazone is delicious.
Staff are attentive and frinedly and make a fuss of you if its an occasion such as a birthday or occasion.

Zizzi’s is a chain italian restaurant and the food it serves is typical of these but is very nice. The decor is nice inside and the staff where all polite and friendly. The meals are nice, quite large portions and you can have a main meal for under £10 per person. The desserts and comparitively expensive but very nice.

Zizzi one of those “pretend” italian restaurants, which has all the decor, and all the personality but the food is an english version, not the real thing. I’m not saying the food is bad, cos it’s not, its just not authentic italian food.

Zizzi is a fantastic Italian Restaurant. It’s got glamour, grace and good food. The decor is swish and swanky, the menu is appetising and extensive and the quality of food, wine and service is second to none. I can heartily recomend the wild mushroom ravioli - it’s fabulous. The portion size is perfect and the pasta is exactl right. I’ve eaten here with friend a couple of times and we’ve all had to taste each others dishes because they have been so fab. As a chain, it’s one of the best.

Zizzi’s is my favourite Italian resuarant in Cardiff, the menu is reasonable and list all your normal italian meals with a few random dishes thrown in. They also sport a very good specials board that always contains at least one starter, one meat main, one veggie main and one desert. The wine list is great as they have a wine to suit every taste and budget.
