Disadvantages: Can get busy at peak times I imagine
Prezzo is one of my favourite restaurant chains and i've been in quite a few Prezzos in my time - so when we were in Aldeburgh in January for our anniversary, there was really only one restaurant we could visit!
The good thing about Prezzo (and this applies to all of them, not just the one in Aldeburgh) is that the menu is so varied - there's pasta, pizza, calzone, grills and specials meaning that you'll always find something that everyone likes.
The Aldeburgh Prezzo is on the high street, right in the middle of the town and is a lo bigger inside the restaurant than it looks from the street oustide.
The decor is modern yet welcoming with a lot of neatral colours and comfy chairs.
We went on a Thursday night and the restuarant was busy when we arrived, but not packed (which is good beacuse we hadn;t reseved a table!). The staff were very nice and attentive but not annoying - which is something that's easy to get wrong judging by the bad experiences we have all had with waiting staff!
I had penne con salmone as my main and my husband had a calzone (folded pizza) and both were delicious and cooked to perfection. We also had a tomato and red onion side salad and garlic bread with balsamic glazed onions to share, which was also very nice.
We ordered our drinks before our food, and when we reordered water later on when our original drinks had been drunk, they offered us a jug of filtered tap water instead of automatically selling us expensive bottled water, which I though was good. They also served the water in the same way as bottled water (with ice and lemon) which meant we didn't have to feel stingy!
Prezzo normally have a 2for1 style offer on main dishes during the week so it is always worth checking their website before you go and downloading a voucher. The menus are also all avilable online so you can decide what you're having before reaching the restaurant.
We walked to the restaurant from our hotel on the sea front, but there is parking right outside on the road if you drive.
We can't wait to go back next time we're in Aldeburgh :-)
Summary: Good restaurant
