Food was mediocre at best for a more upscale Italian eatery. There are plenty of other Italian places in this price range that offer food that is far superior. It’s too bad, because I had dined here when it was at their previous location and I remember the food tasting much better. There was also about 8 people in total eating there. Maybe that should have been a clue. P.s they knew we were there for a special occasion and we didn’t even get acknowledgment of that.

My wife and I had dinner there recently. We had not eaten here since the name change. We definitely enjoyed our visit. The food was great and portions were bigger than expected. In terms of value...I would say definitely good value for the amount spent.

The decor can use some freshening up...but it was clean and organized.

We will definitely be back.

Enjoyed the food/ quality etc...
I felt that portions of our mains (specials- veal chop and branzino) were rather small, considering the price paid ($35+).

Will probably stuck to pasta dishes next time if we should choose to return.

Overall- ok/ not blown away

We ha e been to this restaurant many times. We believe the food has improved since its recent move to the Rutherford location. Improved from Very good to outstanding. Owners, server are real classy and they do not try to gouge you. Highly recommended. To us, best quality of food and service as reasonable prices. Thanks folks!

For an Italian restaurant in an area of town with a large Italian diaspora, the pizza was surprisingly mundane—the margharita pizza is just a cheese pizza. I have no major complaints otherwise.

I took my friend to zizi for a special birthday dinner. It was a disappointing experience.
There was only one waiter serving every occupied table. About 4 tables. There was another person who brought us our wine. That person then sat at a table to socialize with someone.
Our waiter did not have a pleasant disposition. He was very condescending and always in a rush, barely letting us talk to place orders before rushing off. We even had to call him back at one point because he walked off mid-sentence.
The food was ok, but I wouldn’t return here or recommend it. There are many fabulous restaurants in the GTA with both good food and service.

This place was just how it was described in most of the other reviews. Really good food but the service was excellent when we had it, it was spotty throughout the night. Not really sure if we had an assigned waiter or waitress. What was great was it made us comfortable to take our time. Will be back for sure.

Visited Zizi for a business lunch. Service was excellent - server was polite, professional, knowledgeable and attentive. Grilled chicken Italian style one of the best I have had in any restaurant and friends said ravioli pasta was delicious. You can tell this restaurant prides itself on serving authentic Italian dishes. Prices were great too - especially for the quality.
I'll be back. PZ

I visit Zizi a lot. The space, service and food is always on point. My last visit I had a female waitress which make my experience disappointing. She was rude, messed up my order and never came back to collect payment. I had to walk up to the bar to get my bill.

My friends and I did not enjoy the food at this restaurant due to its odd taste and flavour. It appeared to be a fairly decent rated Italian place. I wouldn’t want to downplay their efforts.. it can simply be that the food was not to our personal liking and taste.
