Food is excellent. Service is not great. It took long time to have our meal. The restaurant is in a very good location. The service should really be considered and improved.

I came to Zizis to catch up with a friend and the food was excellent. But the service wasn't as great, as the waiter didn't give us as much attention as I would have hoped. Overall, I would come back.

We had lunch as a pre Xmas treat. The food was good and presented very well. Staff were very friendly and not overpowering. Atmosphere was very conducive to a nice relaxing afternoon treat. I would recomend a visit here.

Their garlic bread with mozzarella and caramelised onions is heavenly. I was annoyed to find out that the cheese fondue isn't vegetarian and they weren't able to offer an alternative. We couldn't have the festive three course set menu because you have to prebook it...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.The beautiful refurbishment of the Royal Mail's main sorting office (hence the Mailbox name) has produced a premier shopping destination in the heart of Birmingham. And inside you’ll find our Birmingham Zizzi. Our restaurant is split into 2 main areas. Our raised floor area is great for large tables or parties with some funky light fittings to get into the party mood. And in contrast, the lower area (towards the large windows), draws more on the canal and outdoor theme, with large floating cloud-like light fittings hanging lazily overhead for a more relaxed vibe. With outdoor seating for sunny day dining and only a stone’s throw from the city centre’s attractions our restaurant in the Mailbox is the perfect way to end your day out. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
