Good service food great nice to see some of the old staff back. The old manager will turn the place back round again and get it where it was. Will definitely be returning now we know he's back.

Well it was Monday lunchtime - a shef and a waitress, that's all. After being shown to our table, we must have waited 15 mins to order a drink, a further half hour for food and the place was near empty. They were clearly under-staffed,...More

Having previously worked for Zizzi and having an understanding of what is expected by the company, the Newark branch does not live up to their usual standards unfortunately. I am a huge Zizzi fan and my friends, partner and I regularly eat there; however, this...More

The building is lovely and the place is set out well internally but the food will only ever be as good as a chain restaurant can be (i.e no personal flair or flavourings), but this is one of the better chains hence the 4* rating!

This restaurant is in a beautiful building close to the river & there the good experience ended. We had to find a member of staff (just 2 were evident on duty) in a near empty restaurant just to get a Menu. The time was 4pm....More

Oh no that's a shame. Did you let them know because they couldn't do enough to help us when we went?

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.
