SquareMeal Review of Zizzi Canary Wharf

Nationwide Italian chain Zizzi is not exactly the last word in cutting-edge culinary cool, but it’s been quick off the mark to introduce some hot new trends. A range of gelati by Kitty Travers (the artisan ice-cream maker talent-spotted by St John’s Fergus Henderson) & a recently introduced menu of ‘cichetti’ (Italian-style ‘tapas’) as seen at far hipper addresses, are reasons to revisit your local branch. The rest of the menu may not wow, cautions a reader, ‘but it’s nothing to spoil your day’. Pastas are reliable, & the pizzas – some of which come as half & half variations or hybrids – help those stuck between king prawn & spicy sausage or regular pizza & calzone. Zizzi aims to please, & its comfortably rustic, flatteringly lit restaurants usually do just that.

A lovely lunch last Sunday. The restaurant location is perfect, just by the Thames. The garlic bread with mozzarella and caramelised onion was delicious as well as the Calzone Trifolati. If you are in the area, don't forget to check it out!

We (2) went there on saturday evening (yesterday) without reservation around 7pm. We ordered the set menu which was OK, only the Pizza Calzone wasn't completed cooked and very spicy (green peppers). We didn't take dessert but exchanged it for an other limoncello without any poblem. Service was OK (we left an aditionnal tip). Mostly younger people with little kids (babies).
