Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Dorset's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Friendly, efficient service. Good choice of food on their special Wednesday evening menu. Busy but calm atmosphere, plenty of staff. Lovely food although a shame that one steak was very tough. Given free desert to compensate so quite happy with that. Excellent waitress, thank you (love the plaits)! MoreOpenTable Diner -

Situated within the beautiful old Dorchester Brewery site, Zizzi's new home boasts a large terrace that overlooks the Brewery square - which is beautiful on sunny days. Inside, the restaurant makes the most of the old brewery's architecture with exposed brickwork and large arched factory windows, whilst the design is inspired by Dorchester being part of the 'Jurassic Coast'. Our open-plan kitchen is situated in the centre of the building, so every table can view our chefs hard at work and cooking up a storm for all to enjoy!
Our Italian restaurant serves tasty, authentic dishes from pizza, pasta and risotto to salads and indulgent desserts – all in a uniquely designed restaurant. Our Italian menu also includes Vegan and Vegetarian options. We are open Monday – Sunday for lunch and dinner. Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather at our Dorchester restaurant. Plus tweet what you eat with free WiFi available here (if you're in to that).More
