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.

I had a skinny margarita pizza which was a small base with grilled cheese and a tiny bit of what tasted like ketchup with a bit of salad. Would have sent it back but we were going to the theatre and did not have much time. We had to ask twice for food that we ordered and took ages to come. Bearing in mind it was the holidays and they were rushed off their feet the food was poor. Will not be returning.

I run a small business, and I was to host our Christmas party at zizzis. I made the booking through the open table app. Upon arrival we were told that zizzis didn't have our reservation. I showed them the confirmation but was informed there was nothing they could do.

Firstly, I did not think that the manager handled the situation well, he could have been far more apologetic than he was, and also much more accommodating. In the last 5 years we've held our Christmas party at zizzis twice before and have seen it much busier than it was last night.

Secondly, we were told that they are aware of the issue. If that is the case, then between open table and zizzis this should be sorted asap. Luckily, pizza express was able to accommodate us and upon leaving we were told we the first of 3 parties that were in the same situation that had turned up to pizza express.

Very disappointed all around.

Zizi's were excellent considering they had not received our Opentable booking and we had to wait for a table. The Manager insisted we had free drinks and could not apologise enough. We were not the only booking that evening via Opentable with the same problem. Updating of bookings seems to be an issue.

Very attactive dining room, you can see the chefs at work. Service has always been prompt and courteous. Good menu, if you like pizza and pasta, and house wine is very palatable. I am a frequent diner and will continue to support this restaurant. After 6pm it is possible to park on the roadside for free.

Really liked Zizzi Guildford, amazing room & ambience. Easy booking via TT and we were given a nice table. Food & service both very good, even though v busy. Limited number of lighter/healthy options for first course, would be nice if they had small salad options.

We ordered several Cichetti dishes: small dishes to share.
Although the chicken ( skewers ) were somewhat bland, the
aubergine, saccottini, gamberi, and arancini dishes were
all enjoyable. A good way to sample various different
offerings. Service was friendly and attentive.

We had another pleasant evening at Zizzi in Guildford. The garlic bread with cheese and caramelised onions is always a great sharing appetizer and the service is always friendly and reliable.

Our server was delightfully smiley at Zizzi Guildford where we really enjoyed our pizza and pasta dishes. We had theatre tickets for after dinner and they handled our orders with just the right amount of speed without feeling rushed too.

Zizzi - Guildford, enjoyed the food and venue as usual but they had clearly taken on too many bookings so waiting times were longer than usual and we only got seated 15 minutes after our booking time. Apart from this happy as usual.

We had booked a table for a quick lunch, and after a short wait whilst our table was being prepared, the service was very efficient and quick. The kids's pizzas arrived incredibly quickly!
