Close to Canterbury Cathedral, Prezzo serves Italian cuisine in an atmospheric and friendly setting. Views of the historical Canterbury High Street can be enjoyed in a small al fresco area.
The Prezzo menu presents a range of exciting dishes, crafted using the season’s best ingredients. Sample meat & fish dishes like chicken Milanese or sea bass, along with classic pasta recipes, hand-stretched, stone-baked pizzas, and risotto.
All the favourite antipasti dishes are on offer, as well as speciality folded calzones, and piled-high ‘la famiglia’ pasta dishes, designed for sharing. Start your visit with a fruity, fizzy pre-dinner aperitivo from the Prezzo cocktail list, and finish with an indulgent Italian-style dessert.
In the heart of Canterbury, Prezzo offers contemporary Italian dining, a 5-minute walk away from the Marlowe Theatre.

Very good welcome on a cold wet day. Good food (lasagne) reasonable price.

Quite disappointed, we were the first to arrive in the restaurant and it felt as though we were the last to be served our dinner at lunch time. I wonder if alerting them to discount vouchers made them slightly less perturbed at our dining experience. We had to wait an hour between starter and main course, the wait would have been slightly more tolerable had it not been that the starter was only 3 lots of kids garlic bread! We were then told when we complained about the wait that they were ‘cooking ours’ it did make me wonder what they’d been doing for the previous hour, the first shall be last it seems

Awful from start to finish. A greeting which was not warm, we asked for water before we were given the menus, but he didn’t bring this, and we had to ask again when we ordered drinks.
The beer was not cold, and the glasses were warm. There were no cooler glasses or beers, so we used ice cubes from the water to chill the beer!
My wife ordered a salmon pasta dish she has eaten before. However, the pasta was over cooked and soft, and the salmon flakes were more like baby food mush. They confirmed the pasta was precooked, then reheated, so a replacement dish would have also been over cooked
My pork belly was not slow cooked, but quite tough, certainly could not be pulled apart, and the fat was not reduced as would occur with slow cooking. It only tasted of the oil in which it had presumably been reheated
The fries were variable, some barely cooked
There was no salt or pepper on the table, and it took time to arrive when requested. The salt was damp, stuck together, and so the salt mill didn’t work
I did not risk a dessert, and my wife ordered her usual sticky toffee pudding, but it was just covered in a sticky gloop, not a runny shiny toffee sauce
We have been regular customers, but this plumbed new depths of poor service and cooking

Service poor, stood waiting at the desktop for 10 minso before seated. The first course calamaria was under cooked. 20 mins later the second course arrived the chips were cold the only thing slightly hot was the belly pork all other was cold. Unable to speak to the manager as he was doing a job interview in the restaurant. Very poor and very over priced. And side plate was covered in grease and staines.

Food nice and service friendly. Unfortunately the restaurant cram the tables in together so you end up sitting on the knees of the people next to you. Makes for an uncomfortable dining experience.

Nicely greeted when we arrived and escorted to a table that was in a good spot. A good variety of choices on the menu and for a change we did not have pasta, which is always so delicious in Prezzo Canterbury, rather we went for grilled meat choices after some lovely starters, I had the bruchetta although the tomatoes were not plum variety and my wife had calamares which were ok but not the best we have enjoyed previously. For once I tried the burger which was very good and my wife had the pork belly which was very good. Desserts were a mixed bag I had a mini Pannacota with jus and a hot chocolate drink but a mix up on my wife's choice of mini pannacota and an Americano. Unfortunately she received a mini calzone which was hard and the filling dubious plus the Americano was extremely strong. We did not complain because we needed to get to the theatre. May I add the wine, a large glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and a large glass of Pino Grigio were rather bland and lacked the zing of a fresh wine, either it was the quality or too long in a previously opened bottle. A shame because the service was good as always and it belied the usual enjoyable experience we have with our meals here.
