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.

Branches

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