Pasta dishes tasty but lukewarm. Garlic bread with onion fantastic. Pasta a little cardboard-like, average. Have had better food at other Zizzi restaurants and expected better.

We've ate here in a couple of years ago, but revisited last night. Remembered good food and good service. Last night the food was good but the service appalling, until they realised their error and then they couldn't do enough. Arrived at 6 pm, the restaurant wasn't full, 1 chef in the place, 3 attendants, we waited for about 20... More

The Italian restaurant Zizzi stands in an imposing position within a listed building opposite the Newark Castle ruins. There is river-walk nearby and the market is not far away. However, because it is listed, the staff are not allowed to paint the front door which is in a terrible chipped state. As you go in, it’s not at all welcoming.... More

Three of us visited on a Saturday lunch. The restaurant was reasonably busy, but we had great service, well-timed courses and great food. Altogether a great experience. We'd be happy to return.

When you go here you take a chance on having a great experience or sitting round waiting and wondering if they remember you are there.

Six of us visited on March 19th, well we're do I start,first of all the service was appalling two staff for a restaurant full of people!!!!!

Went for a birthday lunch with 4 friends midweek; only one other couple in the restaurant. We waited so long for our meal though it really was ridiculous. I hoped that they would have upped their service by now as the last time I went there (about 18 months ago) it was just as bad. The food was ok, but... 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.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
