Last week myself and my hubby were invited down to Prezzo in Manchester to try out the new summer menu. I've only eaten at Prezzo once before, so I was really looking forward to seeing what they had in store. Thankfully Prezzo have a great gluten free range so there was plenty for me to choose from!
I always forget how quickly I get full now my stomach is squished by my bump, but I managed to squeeze in the three courses!
My hubby started with the N'Duja Pizette which is a cute flatbread with mini peppers, sausage and cheese. It was the perfect size for a starter but I think could have easily been the perfect share size for a smaller pre-meal bite.
Unfortunately there wasn't a great deal of options gluten free-wise for a starter. I'm not a huge fan of salads, so I actually ordered off the sides menu. I went with the Truffle Oil Infused Fries (these aren't suitable for coeliacs cos they're fried in a shared fryer). These were super garlicky but good none the less. I'm not sure if I'd choose these again as they were a little over powering for my delicate taste buds but that could well be related to my sensitive pregnancy nose!
Next up, mains. Jonathan went with the Penne Con Salmone, which as the name would suggest is a salmon pasta dish. He really enjoyed this main and I must say, it smelt pretty good! The portion size was great too as I sometimes feel pasta dishes can be a little over priced compared to pizza!
Of course I couldn't go to an Italian and not try the gluten free pizza base. I've tried pretty much all of the chain restaurants GF bases and this one was pretty good. If you've eaten at Pizza Express, this base is very similar. I picked the Vesuvio pizza which is a pepperoni and chilli pizza. If you like you're pepperoni with a little kick of heat, you'll love this. I'm loving spice at the moment so I really enjoyed this pizza. I would definitely recommend getting some tap water alongside this to cool down your mouth!
Finally my favourite part of any meal - dessert. There is surprisingly a pretty good offering for GF diners and not his the usual ice cream.
Jonathan went with the non-GF option of White Peach & Amaretti cheesecake which was recommend by the waiter. I didn't get much of a review from him as it was wolfed down in seconds, but I think I can safely say he enjoyed it.
I went with the Blood Orange Polenta cake off the new summer menu and it was delicious. I adore polenta cake because it's like eating "real" cake but a little lighter. This was super yummy and refreshing and went perfectly with the raspberry coulis.
Thank you Prezzo Printworks for having us and letting us experience the new summer menu. We will certainly be popping back soon!
