Took 6 members of my family out between Christmas and NY. Service was extreme slow - waited 49 minutes for our mains only to have both Calzones Luke warm. Not the best experience considering it wasn't too busy so no real excuse.

I remember feeling excited about checking this place out as it's cool factor is all about the 'church converted to a restaurant' appeal. It was a dark and cold winter evening so as soon as we walked in it was pretty dark and cold in there. But it's the whole point of the church feel I guess. We were shown... More

Considering it was 9 days before Xmas and the place was packed, the service was very good, we go there as my daughter is vegan and they have a fairly good choice. It really is a stunning setting in an old church but it is really noisy, we sat upstairs and what with the place being ultra busy and a... More

Located in an old church, the setting is beautiful. Friendly service. Not too impressed with the Strozzapreti.

The food and service was fine for what we paid. The reason I didn't like this restaurant is the acoustics. Being an old church with bare walls, the sound just bounces around, so with 100+ diners the noise was unbearable. We were also sited in a corner under a spotlight, next to an unispiring childlike mural of a horse. not... More

It simply took far too long for the (average, but fine) food to arrive. The serving staff were coping admirably with what must have been an increasingly impatient set of diners if our table was anything to go by. The kitchen (part of which you can see into) was plainly under-staffed. The waitress I spoke to knew this and agreed,... More

We had our works Christmas party there and it was nice. Great location in an old church. Food mainly Italian was nice enough. I had prawn pasta, tasted lovely. Their anti Pasti are good. Can accommodate huge groups but would advise to pre order the food. Good evening out

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.Located just outside the town centre, Zizzi Cheltenham is located in an old church so benefits from a special atmosphere and beautiful interior. In fact, it’s such a customer favourite that we often host wedding receptions and engagement dinners. We invite our customers to bring along their family and friends to join us in this spectacular double-floored setting, whether it be dining on our ground floor or relaxing with a drink on our upstairs bar! If you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).
