Zizzi, Building 5A, EH3 9RU, Edinburgh

Zizzi's by the Quayside, great views of the ever-reviving Foutainbridge area. We had mixed antipasto for starters (olives, pancetta, prosciutto, feta cheese, bruschetta, etcetera), linguine pollo pesca picante for her, risotto pecatori for me. White wine and a 40 pound bill for two. So, what was it like?

Upsides: Pretty good, above average Italian fare. The starters were excellent, fresh and well presented. The pasta was al-dente and a touch on the chewy side which made it nice, and pretty filling. I normally don't go for risotto but I thought why not? I'd give it a shot. Delicate flavours of cheese and lashings of lemon on a creamy sauce, tossed with prawns, squid rings and salmon.

Downsides: It is pretty pricey for what it is, the mark up must be significant for the area. 12 quid for a 7-quid risotto? (with overcooked salmon no less) At least the portions were big. Also, waitress grating the cheese with her bare hands gets marks down for a big hygiene no-no. She may have been scratching her arse or picking her nose a moment ago, but that may or may not account for the piquant flavourings.

Summary: Gets pretty busy for a Friday night, and you can expect the food to be pretty decent, as they should be for the price you'll be paying. Just wonder to yourself if the staff wash their hands..

One word: DULL

The food is correct. Not delightful.

Staff is correct, not really friendly but ok.

The place is clean but too much like a chain restaurant.

Prices are ok: Average £8 for a main. £4 for a starter. £15 for a bottle of wine.

I will not go there again.

Zizzi, Building 5A, EH3 9RU, Edinburgh

I went here last week with some friends, as we had some vouchers (buy one main get another for a pound) that expired that day. After much deliberation over a good sounding menu, I opted for the Clarissa Calzone which was filled with aubergine and goats cheese. We also decided to share a pizza between all of us to make the most of the vouchers we had. After a mix up concerning the Calzones (the waitresses seamingly had no idea what they were serving, preferring just to dump the meals infront of anyone) we finally received our meal. We then had to prompt the waitresses for parmesan cheese and salad oils (surely a bog standard accompaniment?).The pizza was pretty good, the Calzone less so. Unless they had another offer on, I don't think I would go again, it is far too expensive for what it is. There is definately better Italians in Edinburgh.

I have never had better service than we had today at Zizzi's at Edinburgh Quay. We were absolutely blown away. The food was excellent (having a 50% off main meals voucher made the price more appealing) but the friendly willingness of the general manager who was serving us (as well as cooking) to ensure we had exactly what we wanted made the whole experience pretty much perfect. He suggested adaptations and offered to mix and match menu items to suit our indecisiveness and provided extra dough sticks and ice cream to my children who were sharing a children's meal. All the staff were pleasant and helpful, and the service was unhurried without being slow. We will definitely be going back there.
