This restaurant in the centre of Canterbury is pleasant enough without being inspiring. It was nice to sit in comfy chairs looking out the panoramic windows facing the street and the atmosphere was busy but not noisy. Unfortunately the food was a bit tasteless. The Prawn and Zucchini bites tasted only of what they were cooked in. The Chianti Lamb... More

We had dinner at the restaurant on Thursday evening, and as usual both the food and the service were excellent. Our waitress, Carma was charming, helpful and attentive. Altogether a really enjoyable meal. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Visited with my bestie on a tuesday lunch time and we had a quiet little spot so it was perfect for chatting. I had the pasta pomoduro and it was absolutely amazing and the garlic bread is to die for - seriously. Service was fast.

We are local and often eat in Zizzi. It is definitely one of the best chain restaurants in Canterbury. The food is always fresh and good. Zizzi seems to have a bit more variety and interest on their menu than other chains, and there is usually a money off voucher to be had somewhere! The staff at Zizzi seem to... More

It's big and it's right in the heart of Canterbury. And that's about it. The food is pre-cooked and uninspired; the service is OK-ish; the prices are high; and the atmosphere is a bit like a train station.

Visited here with family for our evening meal the night of our daughter's graduation. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I had a starter and a main and the portion was huge, we left very happy and full.

Enjoyed a lovely meal and the staff were very helpful. Refreshing to find a chain offer vegan alternatives to their most popular dishes.

Had a meal here before going to the theatre which is very close by. It was a Saturday and we hadn't booked but they found us a table. Food was great and the service was good.

Although Zizzi Canterbury is one of our favourite restaurants, we thought we would ring the changes with a visit to Pizza Express. Having been ignored and not acknowledged at all within a 5 minute time frame, we left and returned to one of our of our favourite restaurants in Canterbury - Zizzi. We even tried something new here - the... More

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.No trip to the historic city of Canterbury in Kent can be complete without paying a visit to our restaurant. Located just off the busy High Street our Canterbury restaurant has a large garden and 5 private function rooms to accommodate any celebration. We’re lucky enough to be located in one of the oldest buildings in the city centre, spread across two floors of a Tudor town house known as Cogan's House. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather. If you’re celebrating big, 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).
