Last week we were lucky enough to go and try out the italian restaurant Prezzo's Christmas Menu, me and my husband don't get to spend much time alone these days so this was a chance for us to enjoy a lovely meal minus the kids and we couldn't wait.
We went to the Nottingham Low Pavement Prezzo and it was beautiful inside, the decor was very stylish and modern and everywhere looked very clean. We were actually almost an hour early for our reservation so I was very impressed when they said that this was not a problem and they seated us straight away.
They had reserved a lovely table for us but whenever we go out if there are booths available to sit in we always prefer to sit in those, they just feel more comfortable and cosy to me. So we asked if we could sit in a booth instead and they had no problem with that what so ever and quickly moved us over to an available booth. The staff were lovely and they offered to take our coats and served us really quickly but not so quickly that we felt rushed.
The Christmas menu had some delicious choices and we struggled to decide what to have, I must admit I was very surprised by the prices as I thought it would be much more expensive than it was. On the Christmas Menu you could choose from the Classic menu which was 3 courses for £16.95, the Premium menu which was 3 courses for £19.95 or the Signature menu which was 4 courses and a glass of Prosecco for £24.95.
We decided to go with the Premium menu and chose the Pane Con Cipolla which was garlic pizza bread with caramalised balsamic onions and melted mozzarella cheese and the King Prawns which came in a tomato sauce with garlic, chilli and spinach and ciabatta bread. Both starters were absolutely delicious, the prawns were so tasty and not too spicy and the garlic bread was amazing but maybe a little too big for a starter.
For our mains we both decided to go with the pizzas, my husband chose the VIP Tre Gusti Pizza which had pepperoni sausage, seasoned chicken, pancetta bacon, fresh rosemary, mozzarella and tomato and I had the VIP Queen Margherita Pizza which was in 3 sections and was topped with sunblushed and cherry tomatoes, asparagus, spinach and basil pesto dressed rocket leaves, bechamel sauce and buffalo mozzarella. They were so good but so big! Way too big for us to manage especially after the massive garlic bread we had just eaten so we did leave quite a lot but we had to leave room for dessert.
On to dessert and it was a tough choice but we eventually decided on the Honeycomb Smash Cheesecake and the Sticky Toffee Pudding, they were both so yummy and we were absolutely stuffed by the time we had finished although we did manage to fit in a coffee before we left.
Our first experience eating at Prezzo was really enjoyable, we had a delicious meal, the service was great and the atmosphere was lovely. We'll definitely be eating there again and I'll be recommending it to all of my friends.
