Wow! We went to this lovely place on Tuesday evening [14th Feb!!!] with a friend who comes here quite regularly and we had an utterly beautiful meal. The food was superb, as was the excellent service, lead by Franco - it was attentive and responsive - nothing was too much bother for the lovely staff. One of the many superb... More

I only live round the corner from this place or I would have never come looking for food down sandyford way, however cafe zonzo was a very pleasant find. I've now been a few times and have got varying dishes from the menu. The price is very reasonable and they do a excellent lunch menu for a very good price.... More

Went New Year's Eve. Normal evening, not a special New Years do. Has to wait 40 mins for drink order to be taken then another 15 for food order, 1 waitress, 1 Italian waiter -- seems most of waitresses are students and were away for new year. Finally got some food over an hour after arriving and it was excellent,... More

Returned to caffe zonzo about 2 years after our first visit. Overall we had a lovely evening but the service was very slow. There were only 2 girls working and one of ten was new so I appreciate it must have been busy for them. But at some points during the meal there was only 3 other tables in and... More

Hi Becky Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry that you felt the service was slow, but appreciate that you enjoyed your food, albeit you would have liked more meatballs. Occasionally, but thankfully not very often, staff can withdraw from a shift at very short notice and of course this impacts on the service. But, as I said this is rare.... More

I have been to Zonzo's many times over the last few years and it always manages to exceed my expectations. The food is amazing, simple and fresh, and very affordable (especially before 6.30 whilst the happy hour is on!) It's perfect for any occasion - I have been with my boyfriend, with friends, and with family. The staff, drinks and... More

Zonzo is one of my favourites for a reliable high quality home made Italian food ! The lunch menu is particularly good value. All food is tasty and fresh and the cocktails are fantastic. Particularly nice spot to sip your aperol en terrace on a summer evening! Great Italian food very reasonably priced ! Always a pleasure to return !
