The food was nice and the service was friendly. However it took ages for our food to arrive (not ideal with young children) and even getting water or Parmesan to go on pasta seemed to take a while. I think the staff were doing their...More

Popular Oxford location, friendly and attentive waiter, but food quality was overpriced and poorly prepared. With so much choice of decent restaurants in and around Oxford I would give this place a miss. The chain-pain shows through here and the food quality is clearly served...More

I have eaten at many Zizzi restaurants over the years and have always been happy with the quality of food and service. However, at this one they go the extra mile! We were warmly welcomed by the waitress and seated immediately in a quiet spot...More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Zizzi. Their rustica pizza is delicious, but we want to warn you the portion is huge :D Incredibly friendly and professional staff, always smiling, especially our lovely waitress Klaudia. It was a nice evening. Thank you zizzi.

I didn't really expect much but I was really surprised when I got there with my friends. We were starving so we decided to quickly find somewhere to eat in our vicinity. As it turned out Zizzi was the closest and became our first choice....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.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.
