Reasons for trip

I love eating at Prezzo as it never lets you down.

A former colleague and I met at the Northumberland Avenue branch for lunch and although it was only 12.15pm it was already busy – including the dreaded large office groups which can easily disrupt service for other diners. But not at Prezzo where the service flowed in its usual professional, friendly way.

I’m a creature of habit when I step inside Prezzo with a classic Vesuvio pizza with the red chillies to which I add chilli oil to make it really spicy. We also usually plump for the house white wine which is good value at £15.99. The pizza was up to normal standards: huge, think crisp base and lots of topping.

One of the reasons I’m a huge fan of Prezzo is because they have regularly changing specials and because it was Christmas, they were all denoted by a cracker. My friend chose the special roasted pork belly porchetta which came curled up like a Cumberland sausage and was served on a rich tomato sauce with spicy sausage with cannellini beans and puy lentils adding a touch of crunch. The dish was scattered with chopped garlic and parsley and lemon zest.

Both were fabulous and I was too full for pudding although I was severely tempted by Amaretti and carrot cheesecake.

Our bill came to just under £40 which was good value particularly as I didn’t need to eat for the rest of the day!
