The Pizza Slice: Prezzo (Tre Gusti)

Welcome to my new pizza feature where I review pizzas (which I love).

Had my first visit to a Prezzo restaurant last Wednesday. I was quite excited because they’ve got a fairly proper looking pizza oven plonked at the back of the modernly furnished room. I was getting a little anxious because we had to sit in the little waiting area for what felt like ages despite the fact that there were at least 4 empty tables, and other diners leaving on a regular basis.

Anyway, we eventually got our seat and I scanned through the menu. I opted for the Tre Gusti, which features pepperoni, chicken, pancetta, and fresh rosemary. I didn’t really notice the rosemary now that I think about it, and it really needed a vegetable of sorts in there as well, olives or something. The base itself was good mind, the pizza oven gave a nice ever-so-slight charring, but on the whole the pizza lacked any level of comfort. The ladyfriend had a vegetarian thing with leeks, gorgonzola, and a perfunctory amount of olives.

Overall Rating – 5.8


  1. ooh thats quite a low rating. a shame, it looks nice in there. havent quite got round to going. not really worth it then? x

  2. Well, you know, it's nice going to new places anyway - especially if you've got a BOGOF voucher. There was nothing actually wrong with it, but then it didn't tick all the boxes either.

  3. The problem with chains, like Prezzo, is that you might end up at one on an off night and that's that. You will forever judge every branch on that one average experience. It is yet to happen to me and, touch wood, hopefully it never does.
