The food was very good and excellent value as we had a voucher. However we didn't even get a smile out of the staff members which spoilt it a little for us.

Most Prezzo restaurants offer fare of a consistently high standard and this branch is no exception. Both pizzas and pastas are excellent, as is the service. Very busy. Always book.

I have been to this restaurant several times and each time I find the food consistent with what I would expect but the service very slow. Last time I went - about 2 weeks ago-the staff seemed to be all eastern european with an unfortunate brusque way of speaking. I don't think they were rude but speaking in the same way that thy would in their own language.

Second time we have eaten here - and again the food was generally fine but again the service was woefully slow. Last year we were "forgotten" when dining in the garden and waited over 30 minutes from arrival to receive our first course. This is difficult with young kids who can get cranky when their energy levels dip. This year the first two courses were at the slow end of acceptable but the wait between mains and desert was ridiculous at 2 minutes short of an hour!! This to be served 2 portions of cold cheesecake and two kids portions of ice cream. Then after having to virtually drag the waitress over to get a bill we were left completely - with no-one coming to take payment, after another wait we left via the till paying en route without so much as an acknowledgement or apology. NB if you are hungry avoid the lobster and crab tortellini - a well flavoured dish but barely two thirds of a decent portion.

Lovely food but slow service with a long wait between courses - wouldn't stop me going again but if we had been going somewhere afterwards it wouldn't have been a good choice - but we weren't and we enjoyed the delicious food.
