Always a pleasant visit here, right on my street and it's always busy. Would defiantly recommend, prices are cheap, waiting times are relatively good and food tastes really good! Really nice environment too. Kept the original features

Having been to many Zizzis over the years, we thought we should try this one. From the photos it looks stunning, but practically speaking the venue does not work. Noise echoes off the walls, the seating arrangements are odd, and we were sat right next to the kitchen area, which was not enjoyable at all. Food came fairly quickly, and... More

Zizzi is located in church in quiet area near Cheltenham center. Interior is light and decorated with wall paintings about horse races. I like that restoration tried to save authethic looks of historic building- windows, walls etc. The food is pretty expensive for my taste, but it is fresh and tasty.Waiters are nice and polite. I would recommend this place... More

Booked a table beforehand and service was fast and polite, the 4 of us were sat down briskly and served drinks. Food took some time to arrive and waited 5 minutes for the final dish. Pizzas were very nice but the lasagne wasn't fully cooked and tasted quite bland.

The setting is the main selling point for this restaurant, in an old church. Service is not great and foos is standard, nothing special but ideal for keeping a diverse family group happy!

Lovely old church, very atmospheric. Try to get a table by the... More

Today I went back to use my £20 voucher which I was sent by Zizzi head office for very poor service and bad food. I'm pleased to report my 8 year old daughter and I had a lovely time and more to the point our meal was cook well and delivered to our table with a smile.

While staying down in Cheltenham for a few days we went on a Monday night as our local Zizzi's has been very good & also a local had suggested we go to see the venue itself. Having seen a few recent reviews complaining of bad service, I am pleased to say that was NOT our experience. Our waiter was very... More

Myself and 27 of my friends visited Zizzi's in Cheltenham for my 18th birthday meal. Service was fantastic, everything came out well presented and all orders were correct. The waitress that we had was lovely, and made me feel extremely special on my birthday. The Cocktails especially were beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Cannot wait to go back soon.

Thank Emilycomens1999

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 just outside the town centre, Zizzi Cheltenham is located in an old church so benefits from a special atmosphere and beautiful interior. In fact, it’s such a customer favourite that we often host wedding receptions and engagement dinners. We invite our customers to bring along their family and friends to join us in this spectacular double-floored setting, whether it be dining on our ground floor or relaxing with a drink on our upstairs bar! If you’re celebrating something special, see if our private dining area is right for you.And tweet what you eat with WiFi available here (if you’re in to that).
