On a coach trip to the Christmas Market and had lunch here, so glad we did. Have always liked Zizzi's, their Chicken & Mushroom Risotto is the best I have eaten. Today we also had dessert - Winter Spiced Sticky Toffee pudding, it was heaven in a dish!

After a morning visiting Winchester I called in here for lunch before rushing off to catch my train. The interior is quite quirky, on different levels, and I didn't realise just how big it is until I went to the service station to pay my bill. Service was excellent and my food - salmon salad, cappucino and marsapone ice cream... More

Visited here on Saturday 26th November, it was a very busy weekend and was there from Wales visiting the Christmas market. Friends had booked and we called in to see if they could fit a third person in the booking to which they did on a busy day. All three of us had the mushroom starter which was so lovely... More

3 times we've been in and twice we've walked out after not being acknowledged or sat at a table for over 15 minutes, 3rd time lucky though and then the waiter was very attentive and the good was great!

We have eaten in other Zizzi Resturants but this was so different. The sharing platter we usually enjoy but there was barely any olives and the ones we had were of poor quality. A side salad for £3.50 which had seen better days and was so small. The kids portions very small and no crayons for colouring as they didn't... More

This is a lovely, atmospheric branch of the Zizzi chain. The food was good and came out quickly. We dined at early dinner and the restaurant was very busy which did mean that unfortunately our second drink order was forgotten. Asides from that, the service was good, all of the staff were lovely and the food was very fresh and... More

We visited Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market staying for a weekend break as a pre-Christmas treat to ourselves. We were enthralled with all that was on offer and we attended a very uplifting Evensong in the Cathedral. We then went to Zizzi for our evening meal which was beyond disappointing. We had visited this particular restaurant before with no problems but... More

We came to eat here a couple of years ago to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant was basically empty, and so service would be expected within a decent time frame. However, it took around 15 minutes for us to be noticed and taken to a table and then another 30 before we were asked what we would like to... More

Started really badly when they admitted they had missed our booking for 7. Nearly walked away in disgust, but very glad we didn't. They could not have been more helpful Truly faultless, friendly service and really very good food. Not one of us had any complaints at all from pizzas to pasta to vegetarian. All prepared, presented and served perfectly.... More

We had pre-booked a table and on arrival just chaos. No management to be seen. Took 10 minutes to find our table then a long wait to take the order. Finally the order arrived, food was good but one main course just forgotten! Not enough staff on duty and nobody seemed to be in charge. Pity this was a great... 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.
