There’s nothing ‘Momma and Poppa’ about this Italian restaurant or any of the other branches of Zizzi, but this one does modern mass catering very well. We came here two Sundays before Christmas and it was packed with families and groups of friends. We covered...More

15 minutes walk or, if don't want to walk, you can use the London Underground taking the Bakerloo line in Charing Cross and exiting at Piccadilly Circus station.

At Zizzi we like to do things a little differently. We don’t do over-complicated recipes or scrimpy portion sizes. We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food. Only a hop, skip and a jump from London’s Charing Cross station our restaurant on the Strand lies right in the middle of all the theatrical action. With all the showbiz buzz happening around us, we made sure to keep it going inside the restaurant with top hat pendants and theatre strip lighting lining the walls. *We’re sorry to say that we currently have no disabled access facilities while the building is undergoing structural works. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.*
