Zizzi pizza and pasta dishes

Zizzi - The Strand.

With the amount of Italian restaurants in London, Zizzi is the ideal option for a restaurant that offers something a little different to what they may be offering.

Those after something different will find some new, tastebud-tantalising flavours in their hot-smoked salmon carbonara, calzone carne piccante and unusually delightful pasta crisps.
