On a trip to Liverpool this past May we went to “Zizzi Individually Italian”:https://www.zizzi.co.uk/italian/restaurants/liverpool/liverpool-one for dinner. This restaurant is located at Liverpool One and overlooks Albert Dock. There are a number of tables outside but we chose to sit inside as it was starting to get a bit chilly.
The menu is quite varied and it was difficult to choose but we eventually did. For starters we shared a Frittto Big (£13.95) – a deep fried fish and calamari mix with zucchini strips and hot red pepper flakes (so a bit spicy) – and a Soul Bread – freshly baked dough puffs with garlic and smoked sea salt (£4.75). We had a bottle of Moncaro Montepuciano D’Abruzzo 2015 (£15.95) which was a great accompaniment to the meal. Two had the Meatballs Al Forno -oven baked with casareccia pasta, smoked mozzarella, spinach and roast garlic cloves in a pomodoro sauce with a little chilli – (£23 for the two) though one found it too spicy so maybe there was more than “a little chilli.” One had the Porcini Giganti Tortelloni – giant tortelloni pockets filled with ricotta cheese and porcini mushrooms in a creamy wild mushroom sauce with baby spinach, crispy sage and riserva cheese – (£10.75) and one the Chianti Shoulder of Lamb – slow-roasted, with garlic and rosemary, served with a Chianti and rosemary sauce and the Green Goddess Salad of cannellini beans, courgette ribbons, Isle of Wight mixed tomatoes and mixed leaves – (£15.50), both of which were delicious. Americanos (£2.45 each) and Macchiatos (£2.60 each) rounded off our meal (mostly decaf). The desserts looked delicious but, alas we were full.
You can book a table on line however we were able to get a table as walk-ins on a week night. The service was friendly and efficient.
