Prezzo has embraced the trend and desire for healthier alternatives, with the addition of Mediterranean Vegetable Pea Fusilli and Beetroot & Goat’s Cheese Gnocchi. These dishes are designed as lower calorie meal options for the more health-conscious diners, coming in at 328kcal and 381kcal respectively. These dishes also add a splash of colour and vibrancy to the menu.
The menu at Prezzo is HUGE. The brilliance of going to Prezzo as a family means you will definitely find something for everyone. If you’re after something veggie, spicy or your classic favourite Italian dish, you’ll definitely get it in Prezzo, Northampton.
For starters we went for the bruschetta which included tasty fresh tomatoes, fresh mozarella which had a lovely soft middle, and a generous drizzle of thick balsamic vinegar with pesto.
Alongside this, we went large with the sharer garlic pizza bread which is laden with balsamic onions and mozzarella. It’s cheese galore here! The bread was lovely to dip into the vinegar of the salad too.
The mains were brought over quickly but with enough time to let the starters go down. Even on a Tuesday night it was buzzing with families, couples and friends all catching up before the Christmas holidays.
We had one Christmas menu choice as well as a classic pasta dish. The Carbonara Al Forno was lovely fresh creamy pasta, layered with cheese and baked. It was a real winter warmer on a cold night. Sometimes you just can’t beat your favourites!
For the other main, we had the Christmas Cracker Calzone. This was the most Christmassy meal on the menu so it had to be tried. This is a wrapped pizza like you’ve never seen before. Not only did it look like a cracker but it tasted just like Christmas.
Although it was a bit different to have broccoli and stuffing in a pizza, it was something different and showed a bit of fun this Christmas time. The gin infused cranberry sauce was a must have for this dish as it wasn’t filled with tomato sauce like many pizzas are.
The food at Prezzo always delivers on the classics. The service was faultless and the restaurant is always busy with diners. It may not be five star dining but it provides a great family meal and easy Italian dining at affordable prices.
