Zizzi is a chain of Italian restaurants found across the United Kingdom. The chain was founded in 1999, and there are 140 Zizzi restaurants in the UK.
Pronounced as "zeezee", it is a last name originating from Siclian dialect Zizzu, meaning "stylish youth". Also from Arabic Aziz meaning "beloved", "beautiful" and "mighty".— Sarah Henson, Customer Experience Representative
In Summer 2011 Zizzi switched on Pennies, the electronic charity box, in all their restaurants, giving their customers the option to top up their bill by 20p and donate to charity. By March 2012, over £50,000 had been raised for charity, with the majority going to longstanding charity partner The Prince's Trust. 'Pennies with Zizzi' was crowned project of the year by the Real IT Awards in 2012, also picking up the prize for Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility.
