We dropped four teenagers off, pre-theatre for them, whilst we went to the cinema at 6:15 on a Sunday evening. 1.5 hours later the restaurant still hadn't produced any food! Having received panicked texts I left mid-film to try and find out what was going on! Having only ordered four main courses I discovered none of the food was even... More

We came on a cold day between Christmas and New Year. The restaurant was busy, but we were found a table straight away. Service was efficient and friendly (a bit difficult understanding our waitress's heavily accented English), the food hot, fresh and well presented, especially the Polpette Pizza. We have been to many branches of Zizzi; this one is up... More

We booked for new year's eve dinner as we expect a nice dinner at Zizzi as usual is at Zizzi. The experience was disappointing. The piza who arrived very fast before we had finished our starter, was lacking in content (carnoso, without much of cheese or "carne"). We had to wait 45 mins for our desert to arrive which was...

Visited Zizzi's for a Christmas meal with work colleagues. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The quality of the food was great. Service was good considering the time of year and how busy it was. I would definitely go again and recommend to others. The manager was very approachable and gave us all a free shot of limoncello to... More

We have been to a few Zizzi's and our experience at this one wasn't great. We arrived quite early at about 11:45am and the restaurant was nearly empty. Our whole experience was slow slow slow. It took nearly 45 minutes before our pizzas arrived. I've no idea what they were doing, we wondered whether the chef simply hadn't arrived as... More

It was our first visit to Zizzi and we had great time there with our friends. The food was tasty and the service excellent. Although the restaurant was very busy, the waiters were always around, making sure we have everything we need. We are definitely going back.

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 noisy in there and the floor vibrates like a giant is approaching, every time the...

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.
