“Good service & food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We have been here several times now as a family, and cannot find anything to complain about. In fact this is probably one of their best ( having visited several other branches) with good food & excellent service. It is a little expensive but comparable with other Italians and we always use one of their vouchers(sent to your mobile), but do read the small print because some dishes are not included.

“Big fat liars”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Before we ordered our food we checked we could use a discount card. We where told we could. Based on this many of us ordered three courses, believing we where getting said discount.

Once finished we asked for the bill andhanded over the discount card. Only to be told we couldn't use it, could only use it between Monday and Thursday (we went on a Friday). When we said we where told we could use it at thestart of the night all we got was "well you can't and you shouldn't have been told you could" as if it where somehow our fault they lied!

We then relooked at the discount card and it says nowhere about not being able to use it on a Friday.

We all left angry that we had been lied to and conned into ordering more on the belief that it would be cheaper. All very disappointed and most likely will not go back!!!!

“Rip off Prezzo!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Having written previous good reviews about Prezzo I am disappointed to now have to write a poor one.
The service was fine & the restaurant itself has a pleasant atmosphere.
We were told a voucher could not be used due to some small print detail, but even with the money off, the bill would still have been exceptionally high for what we had.
Having a bill for £46 for a couple of starters, two pizzas, one beer & one coke was ridiculous
Sorry Prezzo but with the amount of competition out there you will very soon price yourself out of the market!
Needless to say we won't be rushing back.

Yummy Italian food and friendly and prompt service. A little pricey but we will definitely go again.
