Visited for a family meal just before Christmas. Food and service couldn't be faulted. Only reason I have dropped a rating is that you are sitting in a very open space which was a little chilly. Our waitress was very attentive and helped us with questions about the food. We had the platter between us for a starter and then... More

The service was unbelievably bad. After we were seated, the waitress came to ask about a drink order. After about 2 seconds, she said we were not ready, she would come back later. I did not realize that later meant LATER. About 10 minutes later. We ordered some drinks and a Fried Calamari starter. Later added a pizza to the... More

The restaurant was cold and the seating was hard and uncomfortable. The food however was good and service efficient. I had the Zucca special salad with chicken which was very good. Companions had rissoto and pasta respectively both good. The ambience could be improved by installing canopies to mitigate the height of the space.

We go to Zizzi Leith in the Ocean Terminal quite often. This restaurant has the most amazing view over the fourth and the nicest staff you could ask for. We are a vegan family with two kids (6 and 2) and we are always made to feel welcome and looked after very well. This visit we enjoyed, make your own... More

Called for lunch , had been to ocean terminal before and eateries are all good. Didn't wait long to be seated and waiting staff were friendly. We ordered pizzas that were lovely but cold at the edges as if they were sat waiting . Daughter had pasta for about £10 and I thought it looked ok but nothing better and... More

Rude service. Very slow service -one hour from arrival to being told the kitchen was busy and our main course would be coming soon! We had to leave before our grand daughter could have her dessert or choclatini which was on her inclusive menu. We took her dessert with us to avoid total disappointment. What was to be a treat...

I totally recommend this place for having a great meal for a fair price! I came with my four years old son and he had a special menu made for kids. Perfect!

We had an hour before going to see a film and chose Zizzi after a poor experience at a different Italian pizza chain and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were all really pleasant and helpful and although there was a rather long gap between starter and mains they really rushed through a dessert and coffees for us so we... 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.You’ll find us in the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre where the famous Royal Yacht Britannia is moored. Our restaurant is situated on the first floor with views spanning across the Firth of Forth. This is the perfect location for getting away from the hustle & bustle of the city centre hordes, ideal for catching up with friends, family, having a meal before seeing the newest cinema releases, also visiting the Royal Yacht or a bit of leisurely shopping. Ample free parking or just a 20minute bus journey to & from the city centre with buses every 10 minutes during the day, so it's easy peasy to get to!Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
