“Food good, Service average”

Zizzi - Finchley Rd O2 Centre
Ranked #4,758 of 22,659 Restaurants in London
Price range: US$11 - US$25
Cuisines: Italian
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. Our Finchley O2 restaurant is situated in the O2 Shopping Centre less than a 5 minutes' walk from Finchley Road Tube Station. Beautifully designed, including its' very own olive tree (inside the restaurant). And with an ideal location it's popular with cinema-goers, party revellers, families, and celebrities - what makes this restaurant so good is the delicious food and friendly service we make sure you receive every time you visit.

“Food good, Service average”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I went here with a friend last evening, arriving at about 1845. Had to wait five minutes before anyone came to seat us. Had a sharer platter to start, which was reasonably enjoyable, though the plate was whipped away from under my nose with still a couple of mouthfuls still on it. The sea bream I had was excellent, and my friend enjoyed his chicken dish, although he said it was a fairly basic dish. The bottle of wine he chose was passable, but we enjoyed the food.

What niggled though was that it was difficult to get any of the waiting staff attention, despite them passing our table, and being ignored. The bill was dropped on the table, but the waitress did not return to put the payment through for a good ten to fifteen minutes.. There is always one good way to get some attention, put you coat on an head for the exit, and suddenly your taken notice of.

“Nothing like the photo!”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

If the pizzas we were served were topped like the one in the photo shown here (supplied by the management) we would have been happy. Portion control when you are serving fillet steak or Dover sole is probably very important to your bottom line. When you are topping a pizza with tomato sauce, cheese and slices of mushroom, to keep these ingredients down to such a bare minimum is simply mean. Your objective as a restaurant should be to delight your customer with a generous portion of delicious pizza, so that they will recommend you and want to come back. The tomato sauce looked as though it had been thinly painted on, and probably less than one medium mushroom was very thinly sliced and spread sparsely over the pizza. The pizza itself was a good size; just very skimpily covered. To be fair, the pasta serving was fine, and the waitress polite and apologetic, but the pizzas served here would shame a true Italian chef.

“A waste of money”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Our telephone reservation was not logged. We were given a table and waited longer than 45 mins for our food. One of us had a mixed seafood sharer and the batter was not cooked, and the dish was tasteless. Spaghetti pomodora with mozzarella was cold. The skinny pizza pomodora was dry and tasteless. We would have sent it all back, but the staff were racing around and no one stopped to check on us. What a waste of £39. We will not be going back again.
