About Zizzi's Italian Bar & Grill

For a non-fuss traditional Italian meal in the heart of Townsville city, visit Zizzi's Italian Bar & Grill. Decked with timber furnishings, the family-owned Flinders Street eatery offers a casual and yet refined atmosphere, perfect for corporate lunches and family dinners. With a wide range of fresh dough pizzas on offer in addition to rustic generously-portioned dishes, there is a menu selection to suit everyone's tastes. Share a plate of crispy arancini balls filled with bolognaise and parmesan to begin with, before delving into mains such as the eye fillet wrapped in fresh herbs and prosciutto with creamy mash, wilted spinach, braised field mushrooms and cabernet jus. For dessert, it's hard to go past Zizzi's popular Nutella pizza topped with fresh strawberries and vanilla mascarpone.

Zizzi's has concertina doors, opening the whole front of the restaurant to the alfresco dining area which overlooks the main street. The interior has cream walls and floor tiles, creating a light bright decor, with a few feature walls in deep autumn colours, providing contrast. All the table and chairs are in a rich, natural wood, and some fun, framed photo's of Italy, plus the Italian scooter, add latin charm. The central bar counter is tiled with very unusual stone chipped tiles also in olive-brown tones and the light shades are very large string balls. Obviously very popular with young people, on saturday night it was packed, with a chatty, buzzy vibe. From an excellent Italian themed menu of entree's, breads, salads, pasta & risotto, pizza's, mains and desserts we chose for entree's, Fresh Oysters served with lemon & shallot dressing, and Calamari Fritti - Crisp fried calamari rings with fennel salt, served with rocket salad and lemon with a tartare sauce. The oysters were fresh, succulent and large, with a very complimentary dip. The calamari was crisp, with a very fresh salad, we enjoyed both. For mains we chose a Herb crusted lamb rack with sweet potato stack, roasted tomato, spinach and rosemary jus. (A very pleasing combination of flavours) The fish of the day was salmon, served with herb mash and artichokes, tomato and parsley salad. These dishes were of a generous size and very satisfying. We finished with two large mouth watering desserts, a Tiramisu with Italian sponge biscotti drenched in expresso, kahlua with vanilla & Marsala infused mascarpone cream, plus Zizzi's traditional Nutella pizza with fresh strawberries, delicious. We also enjoyed a very well made (Grinders) coffee. The service was very friendly and helpful, attributing to the obvious popularity with the locals.
