Boycott Prezzo because of their contempt for disabled people. Prezzo think parking spaces are reserved for Prezzo delivery lorries. They flatly refuse to ask their trucks to move and tell drivers its all right. These are public street disabled bays but Prezzo does not care. Not for the first time I went in to the Prezzo to complain about their delivery truck using the disabled bays, they refused and went out to tell the driver it was OK to part their. I have contacted Prezzo head office... (read more)

My girlfriends and I decided to enjoy a day out in London. We did the usual girly things such as shopping and sightseeing. We got recommended to go to Prezzo's for lunch. We were not keen but decided to give it a go. That was a very good decision. The service was excellent considering it was a busy Saturday afternoon, we didn't have to wait long to be seated and the waiter was over quickly to take our drinks order and give us the menus within minutes of our sitting down. The food was... (read more)

wow, about 20 of us went for a meal. The food arrived really fast but unfortunatly i can see why. I had the lasagne and it tasted like a cheap freezer ready meal, being polite i didnt say and just picked at it then another lady mentioned to me it tasted like a tesco value ready meal. Another friend of mine was half way through her pasta when she realised the chicken in it was still bloody! Wont be going there again, I got chinese on the way home (read more)

We visited the Romsey branch for our daughters 16th birthday. The first female member of staff was very pleasant and took our order promptly. However we then had to endure the rudeness of the male member of staff. He managed to bring our drinks, food etc without uttering a word. He snatched our piece of paper off our table which had the voucher as though he was going to throw it away!! When I pointed out that it was a voucher he grunted rudely and flounced off. He fawned over other... (read more)

Firstly they accept Taste card which is great and secondly they have great choices. I really loe Prezzo and I visited when I was in London I really wish that there was one near me.

This is my 2nd time at Prezzos.First time I had the tiger prawns with chilli,nearly blew my head off, I don't mind hot and spicy food but that took some beating,you couldn't taste anything for hours afterwards!!! Last night had the Carbonara which was as dry as anything and very bland and then the tiramisu for dessert which is my absolute favourite. That again was extremely dry and bland in fact I think they would be better off getting their tiramisu from Sainsburys ,theirs is much nicer!!... (read more)

We sat in the window at Prezzos in Sheffield but were too cold so moved nearer the bar where we had to tolerate waiters/waitresses walking within a couple of inches of our table every few seconds. Still cold and had to put our coats on.

There is a wow factor when entering the restaurant, really great conversion of an old Royal Navy waterfront victualling warehouse with three foot thick granite walls. Welcome was good and service prompt. Lunchtime was 25% occupancy. Pizzas lacking in topping and flavour and at £9 each we expected better. Drinks overpriced , £2.50 for small coke, £6.95 for a glass of shiraz. A budget lunchtime menu would go down well, big restaurant and out of town. Shame all the staff were foreign, seems...

Went to Prezzo in Chelmsford (bond street) for the first time last week and went again this week for a family meal (no kids). We were seated fast and asked if we wanted drinks quickly which arrived promptly, we had a 3 course meal and all of it arrived fast and was delicious. Waiter and waitress were all very friendly and helpfull, it does get packed so it can be loud so I'd recommend you sit outside if you would like it a bit quieter. (read more)

Nice looking restaurant in Aberdeen, first visit. Normal welcome and seated fast. Waitress unbelievably surly and unfriendly. Very overpriced drinks, I'm not a miser, but hate to be blatantly ripped off. The food was nicely presented, but bland, almost tasteless. Except for my Calzone. So chilli hot that I couldn't eat it. And I eat anything. Garlic bread hard and dry, Fries portions tiny. Lasagne bland. A soft drink was a tiny bottle (i mean tiny) of coke. Overall, very nicely presented in... (read more)

Waitresses good but the 40 minute wait for main course was rubbish, it was a busy monday lunchtime but in my experience of other Prezzo branches this is fairly normal. The food is good but not amazing so that the wait for it is not an issue. The waiting staff are usually fairly nice but they are let down by the kitchen times.
If we were told how long we would had to wait we would have gone elsewhere. (read more)

I ate at the Licoln restuarant with approx 35 friends on friday 11th Feb. I was really impressed with the level of service and quality of food. All food was served hot, all together, on time and delicious. No mean feat for such a big group. A big congratulations to chefs and servers. The down side was the price of drinks, a bit too hot to handle!! Well done everyone.

Was not expecting too much and especially when we went in, we were the only people in there. But actually turned out to be a fantastic meal for 4 adults and 4 children for less than £10 each including a few drinks.

Just got back from Kensington branch well we wished we hadn't bothered. The food was mundane and bland; the pollo marriano which my boyfriend ordered was watery and basically tasted like tinned chopped tomatoes and water. We could have cooked better at home with supermarket value no frills tomato sauce. My Calzone Di Mare was cold and tasted exactly like the tinned sardines you can buy that you have on toast.

Poor. Wouldn't recommend to others. Formerly a regular visitor 2-3 times per month. Used to be good, gone bad. Tonight there was unpleasant burnt food and "couldn't care less attitude". The waitress knew the food was burnt because she didn't ask if everything was ok as per usual and avoided eye contact. When I complained, she merely said ok, no apology, no interest, no attempt to make better. Same poor response when I spoke to the cashier. Avoid. (read more)

Because of that amazingly fantastic restaurant, I've gone to Prezzos in other places, which all live up to my great expectations, but I did enjoy the Prezzo in Bournmoth, it was lovely to be over looking the beach.
