“Delicious meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful experience at Prezza. The roasted fig appetizer was delicious and the ultimate Italian martini included a banana pepper stuffed with provolone and prosciutto....outstanding. We loved our meals, the corn raviolini and homemade meatballs with pork, sausage, and polenta. We can't wait to return to Boston and have another wonderful meal at Prezza!

“Among the Best Italian Food on This Side of the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Top tier Italian food off the beaten path of Hanover Street. The polenta is to die for and the wine list is impressive. Prezza offers a lovely atmosphere and a great menu. They wood grill a lot of their veggies and meats and it truly makes a difference. I've been back quite a few times and it never fails to impress. Simply delicious.

“It was just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This isn't the best Italian food I have had in the North End. It is a very pretty restaurant. Very comfortable and nicely lit. We were welcomed warmly. Bread was good. Decent wine list.

Appetizers were quite good. I had a mushroom risotto and my friend had razor clams. Both were good although I was more impressed with mine than he was with his.

My friend had veal saltimbocca which he said had nice taste around the edges but was underdone in the middle. No one came by to ask us how the dinner was so we could not provide feedback.

I had the chicken parm which I was told would change the way I thought about that dish. Really?
It was okay (the sauce was quite good) but it was prepared in the traditional way and was not as good as what you would get at Paparazzi for $6 less.

“Italian stand out in the North End”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food was outstanding - from the fresh figs stuffed with gorgonzola to the lobster pasta (my sister proclaimed it 'might be the best pasta dish I've ever had') to the combo meat plate served on polenta under a perfect marinara - but the service was even better.

Our server was clearly a foodie and took the time to talk to us about how the food was prepared, what the different 'notes' were and selected wines for use based on our tastes. He was spot on!! The bar is a very lively, social spot. Make reservations!

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Had an excellent dining experience at Prezza with a group of friends. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. Arrived a couple minutes early for our reservation and was promptly seated. The server let us know that the pace of our dining would be completely defined by us. We chose to take our time. The noise level did increase as the night went on, so go early if you want a quieter environment. The white chocolate bread pudding dessert is the best dessert I have ever had!
