I don't like to write bad reviews but this was the worst service I have ever experienced in a restaurant. On arrival, we had to wait 5 minutes to be seated. The restaurant wasn't very busy and there were quite a lot of free tables but they ether had dirty glasses or plates on or they needed to be set.... More

We visited Zizzi on early on Saturday evening, booked ahead for 12 people. Arrived and were shown to a table for 10. Waitress said she would rectify but after a wait - we moved a table ourselves. The waitress was pleasant but very busy and it is perhaps unsurprising that a vegetarian mezzo ( discussed in detail when ordered) was... More

Nice setup, although tables were a bit too close to each other. The menu is italian but dishes have taken a UK or international connotation, more than real italian. I got "meatball oven pasta", which was very hot from the oven, very spicy hot and not very pleasant to eat. Lots of spices, especially garlic. The fondue starter was quite... More

We had a fantastic waitress but it was clear they needed more staff and a more speedy kitchen the night we went. We had a long wait but the staff couldn't have been better. I would go again as the food is good.

Three of us visited the restaurant at 2.45 pm on Sunday. The restaurant was very busy but we were quickly shown to our table and promptly served without any delay. The menu is very comprehensive with something to suit all tastes. We have visited most of the Italian restaurants in town on many occasions, including several visits to Zizzis, and... 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.If you venture out on to the top of the High Street you’ll find our Zizzi Bishops Stortford situation in the historic market square. Featuring illustrations inspired by the market town, this restaurant is cosy, quaint and stunning. Close to all the shops, its location couldn't be more convenient for a quick bite to eat or a romantic dinner in the evening.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
