Something for the weekend….Zizi

Last saturday was my friends Hen Do! We decided to head off to Zizi.

Zizis is a chain of Italian restaurants. Despite being another pizza and pasta chain, it looks, tastes and feels very different and feels quite up market, which makes a refreshing change. Prices are pretty average with starters ranging from about 3-4 pounds and mains ranging from 5 to 8 pounds. As we were a big group on a hen do we thought we would take advantage of the £16.95 menu. This menu gives you three courses and a Lemoncelli shot to finish.

To start we a sharing starter. This consisted of garlic bread both plain and with cheese and also a platter of cured meats and olives. YUM!

For the mains there are quite a selection to choose from including Ravioli de Capra, Risotto Funghi and a selection of wood-stone oven pizzas. I chose the Diavola pizza which was topped with hot pepperoni, hot roquito and green chillis. It was pretty hot, but just right for my taste buds.

For pudding I decided to go with the Tiramisu. A popular Italian favourite. Although the flavour was lovely to this pudding, the texture and look of the dish wasnt quite to my taste. I wonder if this was pre-cooked and simply plonked on a plate to order.

All in all the service at the venue was great and the staff were brilliantly accommodating especially as this was a hen do.

I would say definitely check out your nearest Zizis –
