I took my Mum here for a lunch last year. Nice food, waiting times were a little long but it IS Italian food so you can generally expect that as dishes tend to take a little longer than at most other types of restaurants. The staff were fairly helpful and the food was pretty good. We just had a two course lunch from the lunch menu. The food wasn't at all bad and the prices weren't ridiculously high.
It was quite stylish as you'd expect in Princes Square and I'm actually going to go back in the next week. We went because we were Christmas shopping and wanted something a little better than a cafe or a fast food place. We're fans of Italian food and this is a good choice. Their menu is a little limited though, even moreso the fixed price lunch menu and most people will want to go a la carte to get a bit more variety. If you like the food on the lunch menu though, then go for it as it is pretty reasonable in price and was only about £12 a head and I had a proscuitto ciabatta and my Mum had a pizza with salami which was HUGE! I was actually a little jealous as my hot sandwich was actually a little bit on the small size in comparison. My Mum gave me a bit of her pizza though as it was a bit much so I was happy enough. We had some really nice mint ice cream for dessert.
I'm going to go for the a la carte menu next time though as I quite fancy some of the dishes available and want something a bit different and special. The fixed lunch menu is pretty rudimentary, featuring some basic favourites.
Zizzi is a nice place and the setting, sitting high on the balcony looking over Princes Square is impressive. I'd give it an four stars and recommend it. It isn't the most authentic Italian restaurant but it is a chain restaurant and the food is still well worthwhile.
