Refurbishment of Zizzi at Princes Square Complete

Princess Square zizzi

With Zizzi celebrating their 10th Anniversary at Princes Square, it was time for a wee wash and brush up.

The cosmetic overhaul has included redecoration and replacement of many of the features to give the restaurant a modern but classic look with stunning lighting and finishing touches. New artwork in the restaurant focuses on Glasgow’s history and culture and there is a caricature of Glasgow businessman and Provost Sir James Campbell, who originally commissioned Princes Square which was built in 1841, painted on the wall.

Nationwide, the company is in the process of implementing a style change to its over 100 restaurants and the Princes Square outlet is the first to have undergone the transformation in Scotland.

An updated menu, which was launched nationwide from Monday April 29 and was  launched exclusively in Princes Square this weekend, includes additions such as rigatoni carbonara pancetta e funghi which is a rich carbonara sauce with pancetta, wild mushrooms, thyme and parsley, and the calzone pollo spinaci which consists of roast chicken, spinach, mushroom and thyme in a creamy mozzarella and béchamel sauce, topped with crispy coppa ham.
