Not very impressed. Came to dine at Prezzo with friends to celebrate a birthday. My calzone pizza was burnt underneath so I took it back. The waitress said she would bring another one. By the time my second calzone arrived the rest at the table had almost finished their meals. I started to eat my 2nd calzone only to discover that this one was also burnt underneath!

Made a booking online. On arrival, there were 3/4 staff busying themselves behind the bar/reception and not one looked up and acknowledged us for what felt like several minutes. Another staff member returning to where we stood asked if we were being seen to, expecting us to say yes. But no, no one had bothered. Service was slow to begin with, giving us menus. Eventually drink order was taken and waitress turned on her heel and walked away so we nabbed another passing waitress to ask if we could place our food order, having got the feeling that things weren’t up to speed. Food wise, all OK except the GF thin crust pizza was very brittle. Felt like you could have broken a tooth.

Very average food, staff polite enough but sadly the place did not sparkle. Seated close to kitchens ...too much noise from them and smells

Not greeted at the door, shown to a dismal table crammed next to a dirty radiator and directly opposite the open doorway to the kitchen, no windows. First waiter was not friendly. Asked to move and went to a nicer room with a friendlier waiter. Food tasted cheap. Overall it just felt like all of the staff either never cared or had given up caring.
