As a lone diner I always look to see how good the service is. The service was good even though the place was busy. Different staff responded well to requests. Mushroom tortellini was very tasty with lots of sauce and was filling. Extra side salad...More

Visited last week ahead of a theatre trip . Service was attentive .Platters were not good value and the specials had sell gone . Given it was only 18:00 obviously they hadn't prepared enough and as such missed a trick !

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.
