“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Firstly, as others have said - remember to bring your phone for pay-by-phone parking!

On to the restaurant and we have been about 5 times and have loved it each time. I have no negatives to say to be honest, apart from that the staff can be a little slow.

The food is fantastic, the penne arrabiatta is better than I had in Rome! The chicken wings are delicious. The restaurant itself is lovely, perfect for friend on an evening out, or for couples. Opposite a nice pub for a post or pre-meal drink too.

Prices are high so look out for discount vouchers which are available everywhere online! Sign up and get great deals, like second main meal for £2.50.

“Rude and average to rubbish food”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

They were busy, took 20 mins to get a drink. Mains arrived lukewarm. Had obviously been sitting on a counter for a while. My dairy-intolerant mother in law was given a dish containing cheese despite asking for it without cheese.
When bill time came, the waiter was going out of his way to be pleasant (hoping for a tip no doubt). He kept asking how the meal was. when I told him it was OK but not fantastic. He asked why? I told him tepid food. He said I should have told him. I said don't worry about it. As a result we were left to collect our coats ourselves with no goodbye or anything.
I complained to head office and was awarded a voucher and told that the staff had been spoken to. I will not be eating here ever again.

“Expensive for what it is”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

The first thing to remember is to bring your mobile! Parking is restricted and has to be paid by calling/texting a phone no. So if you are like me (not surgically attached to your mobile), you don't think that you will need your mobile just to go for lunch, mistake! But, there is some parking about 10 mins walk towards Potters Bar.
The venue has a modern decoration and look pleasant. The aircon is a bit too low as neither of us felt warm. The service was friendly.
We had a VIP pizza and a calzone. Both were nice but nothing with a wow. The calzone had some garlic butter/oil drench on it so tasted a bit greasy.
The 2 meals and a water came to £25 which is not great value for a quick lunch!

“Good value, good experience”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

We decided to go to Prezzo Barnet for a girlie night with a few friends and had a very good evening there! The food was lovely and the wait between courses was reasonable but the dessert selection was definitely a 'win-win' in our group! The service was good and our waitress was very professional, all in all, great experience for a chain restaurant! Will definitely return! (The only down point was the veggie selection: one of the girl in our group was vegetarian and already dined there earlier in the week, so, there wasn't much choice for her)
