Description: 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 within the beautiful old Dorchester Brewery site, Zizzi's new home boasts a large terrace that overlooks the Brewery square - one to make the most of on those beautiful sunny days. Inside, the restaurant makes the most of the old brewery's architecture with exposed brickwork and large arched factory windows, whilst the design makes the most of Dorchester being part of the 'Jurassic Coast'. Our open-plan kitchen is situated in the centre of the building, so every table can view our chefs hard at work and cooking up a storm for all to enjoy!Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).

“My new favourite restaurant”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

My partner and I come here all the time as we both love Italian food. There is so much choice and the staff are fantastic. Must have been here over 20 times now and each time it is a joy.

Brilliant no matter the occasion!

“Good food but rather crowded”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Eaten here a couple of times. The food and service are both very good. The only downsides are the tables are small and placed close together, so it does feel a bit crowded in together. However, it is worth a visit

“Lovely food, great setting”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Zizzi Dorchester has a lovely setting overlooking Brewery Square and the fountain. If it's nice sit outside. The food is lovely - fresh and slightly different to its competitors, with new dishes added. Great service and lovely loos!

“Service excellent, food disappointed.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It's a great venue for a summer evening. Starter of deep fried seafood was very good. My wife and I both had mains from the specials which were unfortunately anything but special. My wife's spaghetti with mussels was very bland. My lamb shank was small, reminded me of a chicken drumstick! It was on a bed of lentils and beans and like the spaghetti it was lacking flavour. We gave feedback to the staff who were excellent. We were offered a free dessert. We shared a chocolate fondant which was delicious. The children's meals were fine but soft drinks overpriced. Give your children water

On the quality of the main meals we would not be returning but thanks to the efforts front of house staff we will definitely give Zizzis another go.
