Service was good and fairly quick but that's where the good stuff ends. The food was pretty average for the price, and the house wine poor. The cappuccino was horrible, what I would term station coffee (before Costa and the like moved in). It's quite...More

I wish I had known this was a chain or I would not have chosen to eat here, especially with so many other Italian places around this area. The service was TERRIBLE! It took forever to get a drink (which I ultimately had to send...More

For you US readers, this is a UK chain Italian restaurant. I'm not a fan of chain anythings, but this is a great Italian restaurant. We ate here twice in our little six-day stay in Oxford and I would definitely go back, should we end...More

There was really nothing special about Zizzi. Most noticeable is how slow the service is. Seems to be a common theme in reviews so I'm surprised they have not addressed it. Aside from that, the food is fine. Nothing offensive but nothing overly delicious either....More

We used this restaurant for a meal during a conference. The staff were very friendly and helpful during the booking process and on the night itself, helping us to overcome the logistical challenges of a large booking. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

We had a table booked at 7pm. The starters were really late as well as the main and dessert. We finished our meal almost at 11pm. The food was tasteless and it didn't seem homemade. I wouldn't say this is an Italian restaurant and for...More

Would not ever go back to the place, we had to wait to be taken the order at least 45 min, the staff was rude and the food wasn't even nice.

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.Located on busy George Street, Zizzi Oxford is close to the bus and railway stations in the centre of town and in the heart of the theatre and cinema district. The restaurant itself is heavily influenced by local legend C.S. Lewis, writer of one of the most popular books of all time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Silver birch trees referencing the forest scenes from the book and lighting features alluding to the snow drops in Narnia welcome diners. So, whether it's for a business meeting, a family get-together, a party or a romantic meal, the team at Zizzi in Oxford looks forward to your visit. And if you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.
