We had a really poor meal at Prezzo's St. Albans. My two daughters were given a choice of a smaller children's meal or a larger one, neither were explained to us and the waiter was really rude and offish. We went for the smaller one for my 5 year old (which says for children up to 5 years old), and granted it was only £3.50 but when her pasta came it was served on a side plate and there were approximately 9 pieces of Penne Pasta, perhaps 10 max. On complaining they did bring back a slightly larger 'side plate' of pasta. However what was originally served to us wouldn't have filled up a 1 year old let alone a 5 year old. My other daughters portion of pesto pasta off the larger menu was bigger but there was so much pesto on it she couldn't eat it!
I ordered a goats cheese salad as a main course, as it was £10 we were surprised that there were two tiny pieces of french bread topped with a thin layer of goats cheese. The rest was all mostly lettuce with a few caramalised onions and bits of flat bread. Really really poor. The other dishes weren't great either though better than mine.
The meal was topped off by a group of 30 women coming in and sitting near us, who weren't there when we came in. So about half an hour into our meal they all came in and were extremely loud, we couldn't hear ourselves think and the atmosphere wasn't appropriate for a 5 and 8 year old. The waiting staff were all so busy with this group we were then ignored, one did apologise for ignoring us and said they were too busy with that group. I think they should have warned us at the very least, we didn't stay for dessert or coffee and to say we won't be going back is an understatement!
