Archive for the ‘Rotunda’ Tag


After feeling pretty poorly over the last week, I decided to do something slightly less energetic than I usually would on a Saturday night to aid my recovery. So the girls and I decided to see what all the hype was about and of course swoon over Johnny Depp, in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

Before we saw the film, we needed to find somewhere nearby to the cinema where we could get a cheap bite to eat, alas a fantastic new voucher for Prezzo entered my inbox, just at the right time!

Prezzo is a chain of fantastic Italian restaurants which has expanded across the country in the last couple of years; similar restaurants include Zizzi and Ask.

Prezzo always have some offer or discount available, so it’s definitely worth checking their website regularly for the latest deal or signing up to their mailing list like I did. We visited Prezzo in Kingston upon Thames, which is upstairs inside the Rotunda. The restaurant was packed out by 7.00pm, when we arrived and considering the wide choice of restaurants in the local area, this had to be a good sign!

Our vouchers meant that we could have two courses and a drink for just £10 each, an absolute bargain! However, the menu is restricted for this reason but provided enough choice for us to still have a lovely meal and catered for all our tastes. To start you have a choice of breads that includes: bruschetta, garlic, mozzarella and garlic. Main meals consisted of a choice of about four pasta dishes, four pizzas and two salads. You have a choice of beer, wine or a soft drink to compliment the meal. I chose garlic bread to start with spaghetti and meatballs for my main with a red wine all of which I would highly recommend.

The service was very good and very prompt, which was a definite plus, as we only had an hour to eat our meal before the film began. The bustling atmosphere was great too; we particularly liked watching the chefs make the pizzas over in the corner of the restaurant!

If I were to go back to Prezzo again, I wouldn’t have such a rushed meal (entirely our fault) and would enjoy the restaurant experience more, perhaps over a bottle of wine rather than a glass or perhaps even with a cheeky dessert thrown in too!
