“Drink costs spoilt the evening...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

To start, what great food... and the waitress staff where excellent, attentive but not overbearing...
The surroundings were good, clean and well kept.
The food was swift to be delivered and tasty when it arrived.... :-)

The overall experience of the evening was impared however...
Food is never what I would call cheap in any Prezzo's, however you are aware of that when you go in... portions are OK, however I do find the somewhat light when compared to other restaurants charging simular prices for mains and starters... when they arrive they do tend to be good though...

The worst thing is the drinks prices... soft drinks can only be purchased in small 330ml bottles... £2.30 for a coke... you can buy cider (my personal choice when drinking alcohol) but at £6plus for a 660ml bottle this is twice as expensive as the pub next door...
Being the designated driver for the evening however, my tipple was coke... and my my did the feeling of being ripped off grow as I had to order more bottles... in addition I must highlight we had our two children with us, the constant reminder/battle with any little one to make their drinks last is something maybe other parents will simpathise with... :-( Bless them though, they do make life worth while... :-)

To end this was a good foody experience... but beware... if on a budget... drink costs will sting...
This is a shame, as it feels wrong that based on the info to hand, the overriding memory of the evening was the cost of the (small) drinks rather than the food...

“cold outside & no warm welcome either / food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Disappointingly dull early meal.
We wanted a good start on a cold December evening prior to going to our carol concert.
We choose Prezzo.
Only one waitress on duty, who ignored us to see to the other couple in the restaurant (which is right), and then answered the phone at length taking bookings whilst we hang around waiting to be seated.
Service improved a bit , but the food was mediocre, and not really very good value.
A large Xmas party then arrived, so we made our excuses, paid and left.
Could have been better.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Had a meal here after visiting the Gloucester Victorian Fair. We enjoyed the surroundings and the public facilities were excellent. We had 3 courses and every one was good. All very tasty and well presented. Standard of service was good but unfortunately a little slow although the restaurant was not very busy. Would definately eat here again.
