    Windsor Restaurants

    We were both getting a bit hungry so we settled on Zizzi, not really because we wanted to eat there but because we couldn't think of a better alternative. I had never eaten at a Zizzi although I've seen plenty of them in the UK, it reminds me a lot of Pizza Express. The service here was fine, it was busy but no wait for our visit. We both ordered...
