“Nice Surroundings. Okay food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

I went there yesterday with my boyfriend.
Food was ok.
Service was very good.
The portions are big.
Very typical of a high street restaurant.

“Third Time lucky with Service? NO!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Having pre-booked 11 for early supper (6.30pm) we were yet again subjected to a massive delay in service. Initially 30 minutes before food order taken, and then 1hr 20 minutes before actual delivery. The problem appears to be that they anticipate staffing for a given evening and any extra 'spontaneous' customers creates grave issues. No issues whatsoever with quality etc. It was apparent very quickly indeed, with some 30 peoples in there at 6.30pm that things were going to be challenging, judging by the staff rushing around looking slightly ill at ease. I would stress that this was the THIRD occasion when it was rather obvious that staffing was minimal. Solution - arrive BY 5.30pm before any others appear and then skeleton staff can give good service.

“Dreadful BAD service and tasteless food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We have just left the restaurant. When we arrived we told the waitress it was our sons birthday and she replied "oh"!
We were given menus but not spoken to.
When the waitress came for drinks we asked for tap water in addition to our drinks- it tasted foul - I have no idea if it was dishwasher fluid that tainted the water but it was not drinkable.
The waitress barely spoke to us or made eye contact.
We ordered two kiddies meals- both has garlic bread to start- one was so thin it broke like a crisp when touched.
When the meals came my so turned over the menu and we realised there were two kids menus- the waitress didn't tell us so our son could have has a far more appropriate meal :(
We ordered a tropical a VIP pizza- it ha absolutely no flavour, our salt cellar was full I water and the black pepper didn't work which was needed to create flavour.
Our plates were not cleared we got up to ask for the kids deserts- the waitress again without speaking then gave a desert menu- no coffees offered so we didn't bother. The kids finished their desert, no one came over so we got up with a full table and found somewhere to pay.
Waitress- service or delivery?!? Definitely no service or basic communication- we should have taken our birthday boy to a take away he would have got more attention- I will never step foot in presto again!

“afternoon tea re-union”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

it was a beautful sunny afternnoon as i met up with friends i'd not seen for a while. we decided to enjoy a relaxed afternoon tea at Prezzo. the ambiance of their foyer and main restaurant has intrigued me for a while. however as it was such cheerful weather we opted tto ake our refreshments in the garden area.

the service of the waitress and the presentation of the distinctive sweets was impressive. we each opted for a different dessert which came on an indivual platter artistically decorated and including a beverage of ones choice. a very pleasant afternoon.

i find this chain maintains a good all-round service.

why not try one out for yourselves?
