Excellent duck, friendly staff

At 5.45 Prezzo in St Martin's Lane was packed with pre-theatre diners. A little noisy upstairs as a result. We had the duck from the specials list. It was delicious. Maybe a little too well cooked for those who like their duck pink, but just right for us. Nice butternut squash and mushroom... read more

Food was mediocre, but poorly presented. Limp salad with starter, cold vegetables with main. Staff uninterested e.g. guy with credit card machine stopped for a chat with friends on his way to us. OK for a quick pit stop, but don't expect much in the way of food or service. Pity, as it has a great location, with views down... More

We were greeted fairly quickly and although we spoke to the front of house staff, he did not talk back, showed us to our seat and walked off. Took ages for anyone to come over and take our order, only 1 server and front of house gent covering the whole of the ground floor for quite a period of time... More

We stopped in here for lunch while visiting London. The Pizzas (which we all had) were really good. The Antipasto sharing plate was lovely too Wine was a bit overpriced for what it was, but all in all, decent food, served relatively promptly

The Italian cuisine offering that has pizza and pasta at its core and seeks to sell a wider choice at a higher price is quite a crowded sector in the restaurant market - Zizi's, Jamie's Italian and even Pizza Express are all actively mining this vein... Prezzo's is neither at the inexpensive, reliable end occupied by Pizza Express nor is... More

Quite like the Prezzo chain but we were disappointed with our visit to this branch. Lacklustre service combined with mediocre food that appeared suspiciously quickly turned what we hoped would be an after-theatre treat into a functional fuel-up before heading back to our hotel. Our waiter did not smile once and my glass of prosecco was flat and warm. I... More

On a busy evening, coming into the long weekend, the maitre d' immediately acknowledged our presence and gave us menus when he had a moment, promising faithfully that we'd have no more than a 7-minute wait. Well, I didn't time it, but we soon saw a table free up. The suspense grew as we waited for them to clear it,... More

This was our first time at a Prezzo and for a 'chain' we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Our experience did not start well as I had ordered the King Prawn with chilli starter which when it came was only luke warm. However they changed it without any fuss and when it came back not only...

I booked a table for 9 people for a Sunday evening with some trepidation, not because of the standard of the restaurant - we have eaten here before many times and have always had good food - but because I knew we were on quite a tight time schedule, having a train to catch, and I was concerned we'd be...
