I stopped in here before a concert upstairs at the Royal Festival Hall and I was pleasantly surprised - I was in and out in 45 minutes flat! And they were pretty busy, too! I was seated quickly, and settled on a spaghetti bolognese with a glass of the house red. Simple, but delicious. The ragout was so good and paired really well with the wine, which was super value for money in my opinion. And as far as house wines go, this one was infinitely quaffable. I'd go back again for sure!


great view of the thames, so perfect for tourists 

We really enjoyed the mixed sharing platter which had olives, dough balls,calamari, popcorn mussels etc

The pizzas were good and the hubby loved the calzone.  Nice and crisp on the ouside with great flavour and filling inside. I went for the seafood risotto which was a real disappointment. It was so strong with chilli despite picking them all out, you couldn't actually taste the seafood it just tasted like soggy chilli rice and there were rice lumps as well. 
I would go back  but avoid the risotto and try a lasagne instead.

This branch of Zizzi has one of the better views of the Thames from the Southbank (relative to the other restaurants), due to its elevated position on the first floor of a building. The layout of the restaurant maximises this benefit; the tables fill a long narrow (but comfortable) space in between the river view on one side and the open kitchen on the other. The menu is reasonably priced and includes a broad range of typical Italian dishes. As a vegetarian, there were several options available. The staff were very friendly and the service was delivered to a high standard in this branch. The only issue to note was the temperature. It was very cold in the restaurant as the air conditioning units were blowing cold air onto the guests. This was probably due to the warm outdoor temperatures on the day in question. The result was that several guests were wearing their costs, and the food became cold shortly after being served. Some guests did not have the option of wearing a coat, since a coat was unnecessary for the outdoors (myself included). I would strongly advise bringing a coat and scarf if dining here in good weather.
