Zonzo Restaurant is a unique combination of extraordinary Italian cuisine, beautiful décor and affordable prices. Established in 1992 has been providing quality Italian food firmly rooted in tradition. There's a large wood-fired oven blazing away all night in the corner, where you can watch the pizza chef immaculately twirl his dough all evening.

Customer service was good to start however, customers arrived after me and go service straight away. I will add I was sitting there for 30 minutes and didn’t even get a drink.

A bit of a rocky start with a surly waitress, who spoke quite rudely when I asked to move table as the flashing Christmas lights were bothering my daughter. The food itself was hit and miss. There are generous portions...Calamari was nice and crispy, but a bit chewy. My King Prawn starter was overcooked and also chewy. My daughter enjoyed the mussels and the chips were very good.
The seafood pasta dish was average. This isn't an authentic Italian, more a hybrid of cuisine.

Had dinner at Zonzo last week. My second time there and did not disappoint. Service was prompt and polite. My Caprese salad was one of the best I ever had. The cheese was fresh and sooo creamy. My Margarita pizza was cooked to perfection and very generous in size.
Zonzo has a very quiet and cozy atmosphere and has made it into my top ten of places to eat!
Thank you for a great dining experience.

The service was horrific, very rude staff! Only gave tap water at the end of the meal after we requested it 5 times, same for the chips. The pasta had too many herbs on it.

Wow what an experience! From walking in to the lovely decoration to right through to the very end. Food was gorgeous, staff were lovely and welcoming, me and my boyfriend were the last in there at 9:00pm and were greeted with a free slab of cake on the house!! Definitely would recommend and hands down best restaurant I’ve ever been too!!

Excellent food with the most wonderful atmosphere, the waiting staff made our evening feel like one you would experience on holiday. Really impressed with how well they kept all customers socially distanced whilst keeping the cosy Italian restaurant feel, and also attentive but not intrusive.
Tiramisu is a must!

We ordered a pizza and Steak Gorgonzola. The pizza dough was not cooked properly. Tasteless and very bad executed. I asked for a medium steak. I got a overcooked (grey) steak with overcooked vegetables on the side. The amount of Gorgonzola sauce was enormous. I do now know why....
The service was terrible and the ambiance in the restaurant even worse. Loud music. And you got no value for money. The price is way to high. Definitely not worth it!

Hi, Laszlo. We are sorry for your disappointing visit; Our deepest apologies. I do hope that our staff were able to amend the problems if notified. We would love to see you again and redeem ourselves as the authentic Italian restaurant we are :) If you have any further worries, please contact us via email info@zonzorestaurant.co.uk.

A party of 10 of us drove all the way from South London, as we found out that ZonZo served all halal and authentic Italian food. We were not disappointed- every single dish was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The service was extremely friendly and ambiance was delightfully Italian. Premises were clean and all Covid guidelines were followed. We had a brilliant evening - Thank you ZonZo.

Cant follow the eat out to help out rules. Applied there own rules of minimum 20 pound per head spend. Even for our 3 children. Food was very average, nothing to tell anyone else about. Feel disappointed by the whole experience as this was first evening of our holiday break to london with the kids.

Hi Saul, We have already spoken with you multiple times, both publically and privately in regards to this issue. We still stand with our apology to you as there was confusion on our first full day participating in the scheme, and you were refunded money for this. We do not have a minimum spend, just a maximum discount as provided by the government.

Not good enough to recommend.

For Covid, they take details and check your temperature. They also have screens between tables. Good so far, but... I did not see staff sanitise once when I was there & no one wore gloves. We did not get fresh cutlery between starter & main but the waiter did lift my son's cutlery from his side plate & move to his main. Again, with no sanitisation he could take our germs elsewhere or vice versa.

Of our 2 mains, mine was decent (lasagna), my son's was poor (meatballs). Definitely not freshly made & really not very nice.

Big no-no to me is adding a service charge to a table of 2. £50 on a Wednesday for 2 drinks, 1 starter & 2 mains is a lot.

Anyone who described this place as 'Authentic Italian' has never eaten real, fresh, Italian food.

Lots of full height screens between tables, detail capture for track and trace and temperature check on entry all help to make the first tentative steps back to dining out feel safe. Greeting was genuine and warm. Service was excellent (yes there weren't too many of us dining, but often thts when the service suffers). Food was very well presented and tasted superb. Well worth a visit.

Zonzos is an exceptional restaurant. Don’t let the exterior deceive you. It’s such a small lovely restaurant inside. The service is fantastic. They are there to handle every request. The food is absolutely perfect. My family will continue to take visiting family and friends to this establishment. I feel it’s a tad expensive but given the excellence of the food and service, I find the price worth it. Also my kids love it here and they are admittedly quite difficult to please.

First time here and I will definitely be back. I went with my mrs and our mums and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was beautiful and the staff were so helpful and friendly, I can't fault them. It was my mum's birthday as well and the waiter even brought out a little cake with a candle on at the end which was a nice touch.
Zonzo is a great authentic italian restaurant and if you are thinking of going here then do because you will not be disappointed!! Oh and did I mention the food?! It's so nice!!

Absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. Fabulous intimate atmosphere, friendly service and amazing food. I had the prawn and clam linguine pasta and I can only say it was delicious. My husband had the meatballs and was totally impressed as was my teenage son who had the pizza. Can't recommend this place enough.
