Best for Families - Expert review of Zeffirellis

Dinner and a movie? There's nowhere better.

Everyone loves Zeff’s for its winning combination of Mediterranean-inspired food, accompanied by a film screening or live jazz-world music.

The upstairs bar is buzzing at weekends.

Food and drink: 

By day the café has snacks and pizzas, by night think Italian and Mediterranean mains with lots of pasta, pizza and anti-pasti.

The food isn’t gourmet but hearty and accompanying live events are mainly free.
 

Ambience: 

Informal eatery meets jazz bar meets arthouse cinema. Cool.

Service: 

Relaxed, friendly, efficient so you don’t miss the opening credits.

Location: 

At the heart of Ambleside, one block over from the tourist office.

Price advice: 

The Movie Deal costs £17.95 with dinner at Zeffirellis, and £19.95 at Fellinis for two courses (drinks not included).

The Pizza and Film Deal, a pizza and a reserved cinema seat, costs £12 and for under 12s £9.

Other useful branches: 

Vegetarians should make a beeline for the nearby sister property, Feliinis, for vegetarian-only food.
