    Lovely food but DIRE service! So much so they refunded our mains. Over hour wait between starter and main. Others had even longer wait. Lack of staff and person who seated us left for home and didn’t pass on to another waiter so no one knew what stage anyone was up to with meals. Couple next to us left as they were seated and no one came to taken any orders at all.

    Awful ! Pre-booked our table for our family Christmas Eve dinner, arrived to be told that days delivery had not turned up and had very little to offer from the menu. Been nice to have been rung to be warned before traveling !!!

    We booked for 6:30. Arrived on time. Seated by the manager in front of the oven. Lovely and warm! Ordered drinks which came promptly. Ordered food. Starters came up about 20 minutes later. It was very busy in the restaurant so we expected it to be a bit slow. That was at 18:55. We asked numerous times if our food was coming. At 19:45 a waitress came up and said “Your food will literally be 4 minutes”. At 20:15 I asked the manager if the food was ever going to arrive. He told me that there was a problem in the kitchen. He did not have to tell me that. I witnessed conflict between the waiters and kitchen staff. One girl put her coat on and left. All across the restaurant people were complaining. When our food turned up it was Luke warm. We had ordered side salads and fries and these turned up 10 minutes later. I told the manager that I thought the service was unacceptable and he told me that he would not be charging me for the meal. The manager and the waiters were trying to do their best unfortunately the kitchen staff seemed to care less. One of the three was trying to do what he could but the other two were standing about. I will never visit this branch again.

    We have been to Hitchin Prezzo many times & always found a good atmosphere....lovely food & good service ....but when we visted last Friday the 21st we were very disappointed with the food ...we had garlic bread with cheese for starters & that was dry with very little cheese & for main we had pasta with salmon which we’ve had many times before but on this occasion it was horrible & tasted like it had come from a ready meal or jar nothing like we’ve had before ...i realise it was a very busy nite but left feeling disappointed ??

    This was a small family lunch ahead of Christmas. We all ate from the non-Christmas menu and enjoyed our meals - especially the shared antipasta starter, spaghetti carbonara and light penne main dishes and not forgetting the sticky toffee pudding! It was very pleasant and friendly, the service is marked down slightly because it was rather slow and an extra member of waiting staff was clearly needed. That said, the staff we had were very pleasant and helpful.

    Can't fault the food but the whole evening felt like we were being rushed. The food was served quickly but not in a positive way, we were asked several times by several different people for our order in the space of 5 minutes, even though we had told them we were still deciding. By 9.45 we were the only ones left in the restaurant but they were already clearing up and turning lights off around us, it ruined our evening. Felt like we were rushed through our meal so the restaurant could close early!
