Food here is exquisite and easily among the best italian chain restaurants in the country. The prices are reasonable, especially for the quality of food that is offered and the service is very friendly.

Well appointed workaday Italian chain with a good menu incorporating well cooked pizzas and pasta. Its a big old place and relatively easy to get a table even at busy times.

Once again, busy weekend lunchtime, staff could not have been more helpful in finding us a table for a 2 (nearly 3) year old and our pram with 10 week old. Great service and our food came quickly, despite how busy it was. Really loved the pulled pork rustica pizza, and my little boy loved his penne bolognese! Good value... More

Meeting my daughter for lunch in Winchester and Zizzi looked just the place, so off we set. Nearly walked straight past - not sure what look they're trying to achieve with the window dressing, but from the outside looked like a restaurant which had been closed for several months but left untouched - sort of shabby chic I suppose, just...

We've eaten here three times I believe in the past, each time we have come away satisfied with our experience. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant or the chain from what I can see; it serves decent food to the masses at a reasonable cost. Target demographic are those that are out shopping during the day and want to... More

I called in here for lunch a few weeks ago and, when I knew I was returning to Winchester with friends, I booked here again. I booked easily online through their own website and, when we arrived, we were immediately greeted and made welcome. We were seated in the atrium area - light and spacious and a view of the... More

My wife and I had dinner here and I had linguine with king prawns. Not very good...linguine was overcooked and sloppy; king prawns were too few and slices of corgette were just limp. I alos had dessert and had cheesecake. That was quite tasty I thought but the portion size was small. We fortunately had a discount voucher so didn't... More

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 on the high street, Zizzi occupies the old Jacob & Johnson building, which dates back to the 17th Century and from 1788 until 2004 was the home of the Hampshire Chronicle. As with all our restaurants, we strive to preserve and enhance the original features and to reflect the unique heritage of its surroundings through its design and décor.
