About

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. Chislehurt Lake forms the backdrop to this branch of Zizzi, allowing customers beautiful views while they dine.

Booked through Bookatable for Mother's Day at 5PM for 9 people. All went through ok and received the email confirmation. A few hours later I received a voicemail saying they couldn't fit us in until 7:30PM!

I like the restaurant and the service and go there fairly regularly but obviously not impresssed with this!

Manager must have taken too many bookings for Mother's day, waited 1/2 hour for drinks, over an hour later we got our mains, most of order wrong, some cold. waiter & waitress worked very hard trying to chase our orders but were ignored by bar staff, kitchen staff and manager. Nearly all desserts were sold out so decided not to stay any longer. Manager finally came to see us and didnt really have much of an explanation and didnt really offer any compensation, it was only when we mentioned everything that had happened he offered to take drinks off bill. Obviously management needs to be rethought.

on arrival our table booking was missing, so no table had been reserved for us. food came too quickly. main meal arrived while still eating our starter. it had to be returned. meal felt hurried therefore. staff very attentive but we were not allocated one waiter/ess for the evening, so didn't know who to ask for when ordering additional drinks or the bill.

Good reliable Italian. I like the skewers. The honey, sea salt and mascarpone ice dream could have done with a little more salt, though.

The food is always of a good quality but seated by the back door, the smell from the smokers came in to us. When busy it is too loud to have a conversation and the service was very slow - taking nearly 40 mins before our starters even came. On a more quiet day I am sure it would be perfect.

I've eaten in Zizi's lots of times and have never had a meal like this. I had a pasta which was served luke warm and the sauce just tasted like a can of chicken soup! My partner had a salad and the leaves we're old and past there best. although the waiter did take the cost of the salad off the bill, I still feel it was a waste of money paying for everything else and spoilt our evening. Such a shame!

My family and I have visited several Zizzi's and always enjoyed it. Unfortunately our experience in Chislehurst was hugely disappointing. My son's bolognese was like water. I sent it back but the replacement was almost as bad. My other son's pizza had only 3 little slices of pepperoni on it. My risotto, which I have had on numerous other occasions, was bland and looked like it had been microwaved.
There was only 1 waiter for the entire restaurant.

I have been to Zizzi - most often the Chislehurst branch - for a number of years. It never fails to deliver. This time, the restaurant was busy, buzzing and full. Yet we were served promptly, the food was great and we had a great time. I will be back again. And again...

So the restaurant was modern, wait staff were good but busy.Food was great. Unfortunately there was a party at the back of the restaurant and a table of 10 sitting right next to us and the noise levels were untolerable. It was a catch up meal with my friend and we were practically shouting

Good choices, attentive staff and food was good too. Only comment is that the skinny pizza had a cold topping which wasn't expected and should state in the menu.

We had a very attentive waiter at the start of our meal. My friend and I both ordered pizzas and they were good. We ordered ice cream and as soon as it was delivered we were asked if we would like coffee as the coffee machine was being switched off. It was only 9. 30! We paid our bill and by the time we were ready to leave all other customers had left and so had the staff. We let ourselves out.

Zizzi's in Chislehurst is a friendly restaurant where you are able to get pizzas to suit all tastes. The new menu is an improvement on the last. Good value when using the vouchers that are available.

Four of us went for the £19.95 three course menu at Zizzis which included a glass of prosecco and a lemoncello. You need to be very hungry as there was there was a lot of food: large portions of starters to share - cold meats, calamari, fried rice balls and garlic bread slices and then we chose rusticana pizzas which were huge. Delicious but we could not eat it all. Good deserts too. Only problem was that the place was very noisy with large groups so not a relaxing evening.

Great value for money using a Zizzi voucher offer. Starters were good, particularly calamari, but mains of pizza (Contadina calz' pizza well worth a try)and risotto were even better. Only downside was being given a table by kichen door, despite restaurant only be half full.
