“The small things let it down”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We generally like Prezzo's. However we booked a table at 8pm and got seated only at 8.30. Food was generally well presented and tastey but the prawn risotto had only 3 prawns. The prosecco was tepid. Staff were friendly but it was these small details that let this restaurant down.

“Great. Good food with great service”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were invited to lunch and decided on the set lunchtime menu of starter and main course. The starter was very good and a larger portion than one normally gets for a set menu. The main courses were good, although one of us found even the sweet chilli's rather hot, and another said their spaghetti dish lacked flavour. However, all in for less than a £10 each we thought it was very good value. And the waitress with great ... efficient and attentive without being over bearing.

“Poor Food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Afraid I have to agree with others, if you want a tasteless carb overdose this is the place for you.
An overdose of Parmesan didn't help, dirty looks from the kitchen when I reached for the salt and pepper. However, the squid rings we had for starters were fresh and well cooked, but the pizza was like cardboard and I had three pieces of chicken in my tasteless pasta dish. This was described as a mushroom sauce but mushroom colored watery substance may have been a better description.
The staff however were a different matter, although we stood like lemons for 5 minutes 'wait here to be seated' the sign said, we waited and were ignored by all three members of waiting staff, when we were eventually seated they were very attentive and cheerful.
It is just such a shame the food was such a disappointment

“Service a little slow, good food.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Visited here late Saturday afternoon, restaurant was very quiet with only a few diners. Drinks arrived quickly for us to enjoy, food order took a little while to arrive, but was worth the wait as we both enjoyed the meal, had ordered the steak and rocket salad and was expecting hot sizzling steak, however it was cold strips straight from the fridge, but it was tasty enough. All enjoyable, but a tad on the pricey side,

“Much better than expected !”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

After reading other reviews was expecting to be greeted by miserable unhelpful staff , but happy to say this was not the case ! Staff were efficient , smiling and service was quick . 3 of us ate different pasta dishes there and each very much enjoyed their meals . Think cost is similar to lots of other Italian type restaurants and while £10 may seem a bit pricey for a bowl of pasta , there are lots of offers you can get and also using your tesco vouchers made for a cheap , pleasant , tasty meal with happy staff !!
