The restaurant is located at the end of the high street, close to the train station and only a short trip from Gatwick and the renowned seaside town of Brighton. We asked Camille Rousseau- a hugely talented artist from Central Saint Martins art school in London- to design the restaurant. Her design includes a mixture of drawing, painting and sculpture inspired by the local Bluebell Railway and different aspects of railway life including old posters, technical drawings and typography. Enjoy a glass of Chianti in these relaxed and picturesque surroundings where you can be sure of a warm welcome.

All went smoothly this time in HH Zizzis - food was good, service also good, it was a bit noisy but it was a Saturday night near Christmas so...
We'll go again for sure!

Zizzi’s was not busy on Saturday night but the service was slightly erratic. The fridge had broken so no cold drinks and the coffee grinder had also broken so no ground coffee only instant. The food however was very good.

Overall good tho we were forced to have mother's day menu, which made it quite expensive and more food than would have probably ever ordered. The Calamari on the starter was freezing cold. Staff were friendly if a little flustered given how busy the restaurant was. I like this restaurant and have visited a few times and would definitely return.

Booked on line in the morning for a 12.45 lunch table. Arrived and they had no record of the booking. A bit embarrassing, and no explanation. Fortunately I had a copy of the booking confirmation on my phone.

I love this restaurant. The food is always cooked perfectly and there’s so much on the menu which appeals that making the choice is always tricky. It can be pricey if there isn’t an offer on, but there usually is.

Great food. Service was disinterested. I asked if we had time for a starter because as we were in a rush, waitress said not and that we would have to wait for the large table to be served first anyway. Asked which wine would she recommend - completely disinterested, ‘it depends what you want’. I don’t expect people to fawn over me but to appear as if you wanted to converse always helps.

Service was pretty good - waiter was great. Food tasted good but unfortunately our pizzas were barely warm so we only paid for one. Dessert was delicious!

I've eaten at Zizzi's lots of times, always for a friends get together, as its central for a group of us who live a distance apart. Its friendly and a nice place to meet, however, the acoustics are quite echoey so its always quite noisy so smaller groups make it easier to hear each other. Really nice food with a good variety of choices and now you can get your hot drink after your meal 'pimped up' which is great if you are not a lover of dessert but want a sweet bite anyway. Will visit again.

Online booking failed to reach the restaurant despite me having received a confirmation email. Waiter then failed to bring our starters. Staff only realised when they tried to deliver the main courses. Suspect the main courses were then kept hot while they cooked and we ate our very delayed starters.
Sadly this was for a family celebration so we're left feeling very disappointed.

Went for a lunch with a friend last week and the place was relatively empty (a Thursday lunchtime) and yet service was slow and sporadic. Vege options extremely limited and the salad with butternut squash was really disappointing - very small and no flavour, much texture or variety in it. A couple of dough ball things stuck on the side in case you were still hungry as the salad was no where near a full plate. The coffee was particularly bitter too. Really glad to leave.

Greeting friendly and taken to table with menus and initial drinks. After that service was slow and not attentive. Staff spent lots of time chatting to friends on some table and neglected other diners. Starter was a disappointment, Bruschetta which was thrown together, minute bread and tomatoes not cut and it was cold. Waited a very lng time for main course, then dessert was okay. Not as good as previous visits which was under different management.

Good pasta dishes - especially the carbonara, but the seafood kebab was bland and had to be sent back the first time as it was not cooked. The kids always enjoy it here and the kids' menu is great value.

The service was polite and friendly and the food was good but unfortunately all the hot food, with the exception of the pasta, was served on cold plates so unfortunately the food was cold.The wild boar ragu was very nice but somewhat light on the wild boar!

Where we tend to go for a good value spur of the moment meal or to meet with friends. It is dependable and has pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. Basic stuff with wine that can sometimes be a little disappointing (by the glass).

Especially with 30% discount! The kids' menu is always a hit - very nice sorbet and the right portion size for my 5 year old. Tasty pizzas and pasta and lovely staff.

First time to the restaurant and I couldn't find fault in anything.
However I booked through toptable and when we arrived they had no record of the booking!
zizzi's was extremely busy but they managed to accommodate us swiftly.
Will definitely return.

We went to Zizi Haywards Heath for lunch as a group of 9. Unfortunately they were short staffed (which we have experienced before) and so service was slow. However the guys serving worked really hard to ensure the experience was okay. Food was good, starter was calamari - the batter was a little soggy though, pasta was excellent.

I took my two daughters and two grandchildren (one an infant) to Zizzi's in Loughton for dinner on Sunday evening. I emailed Toptable for my booking and we arrived about 20 minutes later and were greeted by name and had a lovely meal with 25% savings on the bill. I have told others about Toptable!
