Zizzi Italian Birstall restaurant review

For Mother's Day I gave myself a break from cooking and washing up and went out for dinner. Both me and Ellie have been wanting to go to Zizzi Italian since their opening near us so that was where we went. If you haven't tried Zizzi Italian there is a £10 discount at the end of this post.

This is the Birstall, Leeds branch and I love the building. It is a gorgeous mix of rustic wood and modern metal work with a floor to ceiling window front.

As it was Mothers Day we had a booking, and that was a good idea as it was really busy inside! After being shown to our table and giving our drink order we were left to look at the menu. I do feel you can spend as long as you like looking at the menu without feeling like the staff are rushing you. We chose to jump straight in to main courses to hopefully have enough room for the delicious sounding desserts.

The menu is typically Italian with traditional starters, pizzas, pastas, risottos, meat and fish dishes. Zizzi Italian has a large vegetarian and vegan range, gluten free options, as well as several lower calorie dishes. All are clearly shown in the menu.

I chose the Risotto Pollo (chicken risotto) at £12.25. This is absolutely divine! The risotto is well cooked, super creamy with fresh herbs. It is full of large chunks of roast chicken. The bowl is really deep so the portion is huge.

Ellie chose a margherita pizza which is £7.95. Again this is delicious (I had to have a little slice of course!) and a really good size. The base is thin, crispy and floury. There is just the right amount of tomato sauce and cheese topping.

The portions are so large that they don't leave a lot of room for desserts...which is a bit disappointing as they sound and look amazing.

I really like Zizzi Italian and will definitely go back to try more things from their menu. The food is delicious, prices are reasonable and the service is good.
