This was my 2nd? Zizzi meal (different location, same menu). It reminds me of an American Italian restaurant chain if it had chic minimalist/industrial, sophisticated decor rather than fake flea market hodgepodge. Like, you get ice and lemon in your water which seems pretty unusual and Americanish, and my server even checked in to see how everything was going. Not typical!

Dinner was excellent. From the wine to the dessert. Very good chain restaurant. I would recommend if hungry for Italian. The Rustic pizza is really good and you can order a skinny plate with a smaller pizza and salad if not to hungry.more
