Terrible service, rubbish food, horrible chain restaurant where they don’t give a hoot about you. Go anywhere else.

So far we’ve been waiting for over an hour for our food to arrive. I now long for the sweet release of death. It would be preferable to the starvation pains I am now suffering. Will update review if we receive our order.

Some colleagues and I went here for a farewell meal. Nice restaurant and the usual aspects you would expect from Zizzi's. Split on two levels - very busy for a Thursday evening, so service a little slow, but lovely food.

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.
