It was a little busy due to Newark Music Festival being on but the service wasn't that bad at all. Food was gorgeous and loved my Pink G&T.

We visited here bank holiday Monday. it took 1 hour 55 minutes to deliver our starters and our mains. Although the waitress apologised I really can't see the reason it took this long - olives, garlic bread and dough balls followed by 2 pizzas, bolognese...More

I went with my husband here and the service was really good however the meals and drinks here are really overpriced, but I guess you get what you pay for.

How many more pizza chains can there be? I like the occasional pizza and was taken here. The atmosphere and layout are good - a pleasant building. Service was good although we were early for a pre-theatre meal and it was relatively quiet. Nothing wrong...More

Is is possible to serve hot food on warm plates, instead of barely warm food on cold plates as per my recent review?

Oh no that's a shame. Did you let them know because they couldn't do enough to help us when we went?

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.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
