SquareMeal Review of Zizzi St Katherine Dock

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.

Quality service, reliable, tasty food in the most splendid location. The antipasto Zizzi was a great find, and the Calzon Pizza is a glorious combination, big enough for any appetite, and full of different flavours and aromas. Seabass al Vino was perfectly cooked and prepared (+ spiced potatoes were delicious); the House White is very good for the price. Do try the Panettone al Fiorno and ice creams- they are very special! In good weather, outside is ideal, you are right next to the boats and the air is so fresh- (hold your ground if they suggest inside- you can always move in if it gets chilly)!. Upstairs also has a splendid view, and being at the end of Ivory House, you gain an insight of how it must have been years ago. Having eaten there several times, I find the staff welcoming and pleasant, working hard to please- it can get very busy, yet standards are high. Price isn't too bad, cheap if you consider the luxury location.
