    A group of 6 for a late dinner on a Saturday night. We all enjoy Italian food very much and always are looking for new restaurants to call our favorite. This will go on our list of favs for sure. Service was good, quick although a friend orders an app and did not get it only coz the waiter did not write it down. Mistakes can happen coz other than that our guy knew his stuff and was great.

    We went to ZiZi Trattoria for our 41st anniversary on the recommendation of our daughter and we were certainly glad we did. The food was delicious and plentiful. The wait staff was friendly and always available and we had a quiet table next to the window where we could watch the rain. I had trout which was moist and tender and my husband had seafood gnocchi which he said was excellent. We will be returning soon as the menu is varied and I would like to try a lot more dishes.

    Dined on 4/16/2014
    I would recommend Zizi to anyone who appreciates delicious Italian comfort food, attentive service and if you want a special evening dinner experience. The appetizers I would recommend would be mussels in delicious tomato sauce & grilled calamari. I would stay away from eating to much bread, if you order a main dinner dish. The specials we had was rainbow trout with vegetables & roasted potatoes and a seafood pasta dish with mussels. We had house red wine with our food & for dessert lemonchello truffle.

    Had a great dinner at ZiZi with my mom, who was visiting from out of town. The portions were huge -- each of us had enough left over for at least another meal. The rose sauce was excellent, and my mom remarked several times how great the Caesar salad was. I did have the feeling that many of the diners were regulars, but we didn't feel out of place. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I look forward to returning once the patio opens for the summer, though the views of Highway 7 aren't the most charming.

    You guys never disappoint me when I entertain my friends and clients. Just had a family get together for parents 50th Anniversary and greatly enjoyed it. Recently entertained a client from New York at Zizi and he was very impressed with the food and service as I always am. Usually I order the fresh fish of the day, always good. Keep up the good work!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    Over all the food was good. Our disappointment was first arriving at 7:15 for our reservations and having to stand at the door for 20 minutes for our table. Very uncomfortable with people going in and out of the resturant and us moving over for all to go in and out! The second disappointment was how long it took for out main dish to be brought to us. The service was not to our standards as far as the wait for the table and the food. I wish you good luck for future. Ciao

    Visited Zizi for the first time with family. Fried calamari and carpacio was the best I've had since visiting Europe. The Fillet Mignon special was very tender and my wife Chilian seabass was very well prepared. The staff was helpful and accommodating to my children. My kids even remarked how tasty their pizzas were.

    We have been to ZiZi several times and every time it was a wonderful experience. service is top notch, and the food is fabulous every time. I ordered the arugula salad ( my favourite of all their salads, and straciatella soup, and I had the rotolo which was the special, and was absolutely fantastic. Everything is made from scratch, and is fresh and delicious. We always go here on special occasions, and since it was my Birthday. It was a perfect opportunity to visit again. We have also come with friends. We will definitely return.

    We went eight of us and all enjoyed their food. The thin-crust pizzas were really good, as was the minestrone soup. the only one small comment I'd make is that there should be a note on the menu where a pizza or soup is spicy so you know ahead of time before ordering for kids. The service was excellent; we never had to ask for our glasses to be refilled and the food came quickly and all at the same time. I would definitely go back.

    This was by far the best dining experience I'v had in this city. There are some good restaurants in these parts, these guys made my dining experience a memorable one with my wife. I had called ahead and mentioned it was our wedding anniversary and the staff treated us extra special with a nice quiet table and champagne at the end. Our dinner consisted of carpacio and arugula salad for apps and fresh whole fish(seabass) and rack of lamb. All the dishes were fantastic along with the staff. Looks like they have a nice patio, but it was too cold to sit outside. I will definitely suggest Zizi to my colleagues.

    ZIZI stands out amongst its many upstart rivals because it has a track record of providing consistently tasty food in generous portions by friendly staff. The décor is warm but somewhat in need of a freshening if it wants to compete with some of the newer restaurants. The menu is augmented by more expensive daily specials. Menu items are surprisingly well priced and guests will be sure to recommend ZIZI because of the overall quantity, quality, price but especially taste
