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.

Since I was last here it has been refurbished and looks great, lots of light and nice atmosphere. Staff were very attentive and chatty and are very good at recommending dishes. Food is excellent and we always enjoy it every time we go!

We arrived late on a Saturday night and wasn't too busy at all. Maybe about 10 or so couples in. Despite of this we were shown to a tiny table crammed in between 2 other tiny tables that were both occupied... Essentially near enough sitting on other couples knees.. we were moved after asking, but poor service to even be put here in the first place.
Following this the plates that came with our starters were quite dirty. Grit like dirt that can sometimes happen in dishwasher on both plates.
We had to goto bar to request bill as noone walking the tables at the time and we had waited a while.
Would go back, but the service side definitely needs some work.

Got a student card, got a food club membership? You'll get around 25% off on certain days of the week. The food here is excellent, staff good, surroundings unique. Gluten free options available, staff know their wine, well recommended. There are some poor chain restaurants around, this isnt one of them.

The restaurant is located in the Ocean Terminal and is an open area style with large glass frontage over looking the Leith Harbour.
The service was quick and the food was tasty and hot. Not much more to say really apart from drinks I think are the same price what ever town or city your are that is expensive. Though all the chain food outlets are the same with drinks prices

We were seated v promptly by a very nice lady, sadly after this point our experience was different to the majority of reviews so possibly we were unlucky on our visit. We decided v quickly what we wanted and waited for someone to take our order. Our two young children were given colouring in stuff when we were seated but after awhile were getting restless. We waited 30 minutes, still no drinks order taken or food order taken. Only a dozen or so tables occupied so couldn't understand the delay. The table next to us had finished their meals as we arrived and were still waiting to get cleared. As we stood up they did, having had enough of waiting. As we walked out we spoke to the waiter and just said we'd got sick of waiting and were going elsewhere, he shrugged and said said bye. We went to a nearby pizza restaurant, were seated, had our order taken in 10 mins and they were far busier. Not a good impression of Zizzi sadly today.
