Located in the heart of London, just walking distance from Oxford Street, with all of its great shops. Our restaurant is spread over two floors, offering a nice warm atmosphere and delicious food. We have big long tables great for parties and lovely little alcoves for more intimate meals The restaurant had a makeover in November 2009, your local pocket of Italy is now decked out with its very own traditional pizza oven, sparkling olive oil vats, and plenty of other interesting little details that draw influence from the local area. The same delicious food, now with nicer surroundings.

Good Afternoon, the service at this zizzis was appauling; they sat us down and didn't serve for ages then delivered the main without removing the starters and did not offer parmasan for the pasta. They then forgot about desserts and we had ordered 1 of the set menus. Needs a better operation and training on serving customers.

Our table booking hadn’t been logged by the restaurant so we waited 25 mins to be seated, and then 45 mins after our order for the food to arrive

We were in London just before Christmas with our two children (9 & 7) and decided at the last minute to have dinner before catching a train home. I looked at Opentable and found Zizzi nearby on Wigmore Street. I made a booking and we headed over. We often eat at Zizzi in Henley so we knew the kids would enjoy the food. I prefer the Zizzi in Henley, but the one in Wigmore Street is great for a family meal.

I've been to this Zizzi a couple of times and unfortunately every time I have been I have always left disappointed and yet I keep returning due to its location which is conveniently located around the corner from my office.

The main issues I have with this venue, is that the service is incredibly slow, if you're attempting to dine within your one hour lunch break always give about half an hour extra. I had booked a 12.30pm slot to avoid the rush as I was hoping service would be slightly quicker. We were the only party when we arrived at 12.30pm, yet our food was delayed and we had to chase the waitress to find out what the delay was.

When my mains came, unfortunately the pasta was so overcooked that it was actually mushy and I left half of it uneaten.

The positives of this venue, is that the décor is lovely and the staff is friendly. But the food and time waiting for it is just below average standards. I'm really hoping that they can improve on this.

Food was good but service slow and we had to attract the waiter to order food and drinks. We were ignored a few times when we obviously needed service.

The service was really slow and the team seemed disorganised. We’ve had to wait and some items where missing. When we asked we’ve been given a new dish which was not our order and had to pay for it. Nice location though but service really has to be improved

Though we were seated in the downstairs portion of the restaurant, we soon forgot our desire for a street view table, and enjoyed the ambience and good service. The overall experience was good, food portions were good, though the food itself is nothing outstanding. I would rate it as comfort food, and would go back for more. We had a table of 10.

Waiting staff were incredibly rude! Only one other party on the entire ground floor, long before closing and they clearly wanted us out ... will not return.

It took 2 hours for us to start and finish our lunch
Our table wasn't ready and we had to stand in the cold with a small child, then they let us in but there was still no where to stand and other customers were very annoyed by us.

I met a friend for a quick bite before a BBC lunch-time concert in the Wigmore Hall. We had a sharing platter, one of several on the menu, which was delicious and tasty. Service was pleasant, speedy and unobtrusive. I shall certainly return for all such similar occasions, and recommend to others.

We have been here before and it always gives good value for money. Nice service. Quick serving of food and Wine. Marylebone is also a small community which is nice to visit. Some good restaurants and shops.

We had an enjoyable meal at Zizzis. The menu is varied with something to appeal to most people. Pizzas are fine and our salads were crisp and fresh. The sundaes were indulgent and the coffee was hot and full of flavour. Our waiter could not have been more helpful:- always about but never intrusive.

Booked this Zizzi as an easy post work dinner with some friends visiting London. Was by no means full but service was atrociously slow, and dishes either brought in error or forgotten about. Pizza I chose was dreadful - lots of base, hardly any topping. Won't be going back again.

I dined here with a friend.

I ordered a spaghetti my friend a linguini dish. When served, they'd mixed up the pasta with the wrong sauces. We were offered to change to our order so gratefully accepted.

We went as a group and the pizza arrived quite swiftly, the bases were thin and crusty and the toppings were really nice. The dough lacked a bit of salt but apart from that the meal was lovely. Zizzi is always a good choice for pizza!

Booked the table, but still had to waited for 30 mins. Then the rude waitress told us there is no table available since they are super busy and left us with no attention whatsoever. Didn't even get to eat. Left not happy

Was really disappointed with the service we received on the 9th March. i'd pre-booked a table for 9 persons including children and we were all really looking forwrad to our lunch. We were shocked we had to wait an hour for our starters and then when it was finally served the chicken was dry and the food wasnt even hot. Then the main course arrived and one of the groups order was missed off!
Such a shame as we pre-booked and picked a great location.

I booked Zizzi for my sister's hen do dinner to kick the night off and all I can say is that we were massively let down from the start
Firstly they did not have us booked in for the correct time (luckily i had the booking confirmation on me), then we had a waiter who could not have been slower or leass attentive if he tried - in fact it seemed like he was trying to do all he could not to serve us!
They never came to check on us or see if we wanted more - we had to go to him!
The food was horrific - so bad tasing in fact we left a most of it - no taste and not everything on the menu was available.

Their loss as we will never go again and also we woudl have spent a lot more on drinks if they had come around to take orders!
