Wanted to eat last time we visited Canterbury but it was fully booked. This time we booked well in advance (table for 7) and we were not disappointed. A very well designed venue …looks very fancy but it is not expensive. Good Italian food and great for both families and parties. The noise level can be quite high so not sure if It would be my choice for couples. Staff very nice but did notice a subtle push for extras eg while ordering drinks we were directly asked if we would like some olives too. Being Irish I know you pay for everything but in certain countries, things like this come free so you may be surprised when you get your bill and see your small bowl of olives cost you £2.95. We ordered two but they were worth it!

Visited Prezzos, for a preshow meal before going to the Marlowe theatre.I have eaten in Prezzos mainy a time and have always enjoyed the ambience, high quality food and service.
Unfortuately not this time. The male waiter looked and spoke if we were a bit of a nuisance and had hurry up type of attitude. Our meal was plonked down in front of us 2-3mins after ordering, quick service we appreciate, but I would imagine that the microwave was on the blink as it was luke warm!!! The garlic bread on the side to share, was small and must have run past the clove at such a rate, as it certainly had not stopped to pick up any flavour.
Restaurant, clinically clean as always in Prezzos, but perhaps we just chose the wrong time for our visit

My wife and I dined here midweek with one of Prezzo's promotional vouchers. Staff so "professional" that they forget to even smile, say hello or thank you. And mention off promotional voucher seemed to give them even less interest.(promo voucher, get new customers in, might come back?)
It was quite busy but had to ask 3 different servers for a 2nd glass of tap water in 30 minutes of dining. My wife enjoyed her pasta but my meatballs were more like "mushballs" totally tasteless and devoid of texture. Had to wait 12 minutes for the bill and had to go to till to check when our change was coming back after another 10 minutes. In our opinnion they were short of staff but no excuses for not smiling and being polite. We have dined in other Prezzo's before but this was by far the Poorest even with a promotional voucher.

As regulars at Whitstable Prezzo (where service is generally good) we decided to stop by at the Canterbury branch for a quick lunch. Downloaded a voucher for 2 meals for £12.95 and checked with staff that this would be ok on arrival...by doing so we had inadvertently let ourselves in for seriously bad service!

We were just after a quick bite but the very slow service made that impossible. There was a very unpleasant 'up-sell' approach for side dishes and dessert etc. which we didn't fancy and a feeling that we were a bit beneath them for not purchasing all of the extras.. To top it off, when we finally received the bill we were again sneered at for paying by cash and my change didn't come back to my table...at all! I felt like a right fool having to go up and ask a different waiter if I could have my change. And no, we weren't going to leave it as a tip!

First time to a prezzo chain and it did not disappoint. Service was very good throughout. The food did not disappoint too. Will definitely visit the chain again.
