I know Zizzi restaurants very well, they basically all follow the same system in all their restaurants and do you know what? It works! Even though Zizzi's is a chain supposably Italian restaurants, you might never find an Italian staff member in any of their locations. Strangely, it does present to you the Italian food as close as you can... More

We were the first people in the restaurant, as we had arrived late afternoon in Chester, and needed somewhere to eat after checking into our hotel! The staff were friendly, and attentive! As the evening went on, the restaurant filled up!

Visited during a shopping trip with a friend. The restaurant was pretty quiet so were seated at the table of our choice. Ordered our lunches, both the ravioli, which were served quickly by a very pleasant young lady. The food was beautiful at a reasonable price and would recommend for a bit of lunch.

Always a great meal however the pizzas seem to have grown in size. The staff were great but we could have ordered one pizza between us it was so big, A little on the expensive side in comparison to other Pizza restaurants

Popped into Zizzi's during recent trip to Chester, opted for there due to positive experiences at other franchises and O2 priority moments. Overall not impressed- decent service but food especially the main courses failed to deliver. Passed a number of busy restaurants on the way- maybe a clue was a relatively empty dining area was a clue. Ordered the 3... More

We went for dinner as I was away with work. It was nice the food was as your expect from a chain. Our waiter was happy and attentive. I ordered the strozaptti pesto rosso which I have had before. This time it was a tad watery. The other slight thing that was not right the garlic bread we sent back... More

We went in for a late lunch, we were seated quite quickly and given the menus to browse through. It wasn't busy. Maybe 4 other tables in use. The waiter seemed pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately that was the best part of the experience. We waited 20 mins to place our order. Drinks were brought 30 mins after we were seated.... More

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 Chester restaurant is so close to the old Roman wall that, if it were a person, it’d be sitting on it. Only ½ a mile from the nearest train station it’s the perfect stop on your day out in Chester. Around the restaurant you’ll find nods to the local horse racing and Chester Theatre. And of course, our designers were inspired by Chester’s Roman history, with something that important you have to pay homage.
