Prezzo has been delighting diners for over eight years, and this Italian restaurant chain has since been able to expand throughout large parts of England and Scotland with some 141 outlets.

Interestingly, the company seeks to restore either impressive buildings or ones of local interest. The conversion of the Newbury library and other listed buildings, such as those in Salisbury, Romsey and Mayfair, are all welcome examples of 'new use'. Their trendy and sophisticated décor usually consists of tiled or wooden floors with delicate lights and colourful paintings, along with wooden furniture and sparkling cutlery, creating a setting that is suitable for a relaxed lunch, a family meal or an evening out with friends.

The restaurants are of particular appeal to those who like genuine Italian cuisine, and they use only the best seasonal products, many of which are imported directly from Italy. The menu includes pizza, pasta, risotto, grilled meats, fresh salads and frequently changing specials.

The freshly baked breads, like the garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, are perfect for sharing and give you adequate breathing space to order starters to follow. Crab cakes served with garlic mayonnaise or grilled goat's cheese with plum tomatoes and caramelised onions on foccacia bread with a balsamic glaze set the tone for a hearty meal. Best fun is to order an antipasto platter to share made up from seven well loved Italian nibbles.

Find pastas such as the unusual penne con salmone, with oak-roasted salmon, broccoli and fresh chillies in a red pesto and cream sauce, or firm favourites like spaghetti with meatballs, spaghetti Bolognese, and fusilli al pesto, asparagus spears with field mushrooms and roasted peppers in a basil pesto sauce.

Amongst the special pastas, the pollo mariano, seasoned chicken, pepperoni sausage, roasted peppers and fusilli in tomato sauce, is interesting and different. Italian menus would be incomplete without risotto, like tiger prawns with petits pois in a creamy saffron sauce.

Classic pizzas embrace, among a wide selection, the popular napoletana, topped with yellowfin tuna, tomato, white anchovies, capers, red onion, mozzarella and marinated olives, and the much loved quattro stagioni - pepperoni sausage, prosciutto ham, artichoke, field mushrooms, capers, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato.

Specials could include the pollo Siciliana, char-grilled chicken breast, prosciutto ham and plum tomato slices, baked with their blend of cheese, only one example from the many tempting offerings that come out from the Prezzo kitchens.

You can accompany the food with a variety of tipples, though for many, Italian food requires Italian wines to be enjoyed to the full, ranging from house wine through Morellino di Scansano and Prosecco to liqueurs and beer, and there is espresso or fresh ground coffee to wind up an enjoyable meal, in company with a glass of grappa or sambuca.

This is Italian food at its attractive best, convincing and bringing together the traditional with the modern twist or two against a background of excellent value.

Prezzo is a lively group and opportunities to improve and update are never left on the table for long. Keep up to date with a quick click on their Website.

Restaurant 1563

The White Lion Hotel, Market Cross Place, Aldeburgh, IP15 5BJ [Map]

The White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh has a remarkable location; it looks right across the shingle beach and from its many rooms, guests can enjoy some marvellous views of the sea that go as far as the eye can see. This traditional hotel is much like a balm for the soul whose nerves are frayed on a regular basis thanks to the pressures of everyday life. The soothing and serene atmosphere there is only matched by the warm and friendly welcome you are bound to receive.

The newly refurbished AA rosette winning Restaurant 1563 is a delight for gastronomes on the look out to extend their culinary relationship with  Suffolk. Local fish is literally a hop away with many of their suppliers just on the beach opposite the hotel, so amongst starters, expect to find flaked smoked mackerel with horseradish capers and melba toast followed by baked salmon with potato salad and chunky gazpacho. End with the strawberry shortbread with vanilla cream or maybe something from the selection of ice creams and sorbets.

Regatta Restaurant

171 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5AN [Map]

The seafood theme emerges strong and clear right from their name and the trend continues with the delicious food on offer at Regatta which is located in High Street in Aldeburgh. This Suffolk restaurant is an elegant dining space, high on comfort and easy on the eyes with its pleasant wall art depicting sailing boats, probably at a regatta. Learn more

The seafood theme emerges strong and clear right from their name and the trend continues with the delicious food on offer at Regatta which is located in High Street in Aldeburgh. This Suffolk restaurant is an elegant dining space, high on comfort and easy on the eyes with its pleasant wall art depicting sailing boats, probably at a regatta. Locally caught fish and seafood star on the menu although meat, poultry and vegetarian dishes are also available for those who feel the need to move out of the realm of the sublimely fishy.

Starters might bring you tiger prawn tempura with dipping sauce followed by a main course of gratin of crayfish and leek thermidor or well hung Scottish grilled sirloin steak. Favourites amongst desserts could include the sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream or a selection of British cheeses and the wine list is adequate, featuring some by glass and others by the bottle. Regatta's special themed gourmet evenings held regularly are very popular.

The family owned Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh has a splendid location and offers all the comforts and luxuries that you would come to expect from a seaside hotel.

The Golden Galleon

137 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5AR [Map]

In dear respectable Aldeburgh one might be forgiven for not expecting to find a chippy. Perhaps it is symptomatic of the radical changes within Middle England that its attitude to such establishments is becoming more relaxed, and its disciples, who make up a large part of the transient population of Aldeburgh, even have a choice of chippies.

In dear respectable Aldeburgh one might be forgiven for not expecting to find a chippy. Perhaps it is symptomatic of the radical changes within Middle England that its attitude to such establishments is becoming more relaxed, and its disciples, who make up a large part of the transient population of Aldeburgh, even have a choice of chippies.

The Golden Galleon is highly popular, with its take-away department on the ground floor and a decent restaurant upstairs. Mr Ramsden has taught us that fish cooked in batter and beef dripping is the tops, and GG have no hesitation in following that advice. Combined with hand-cut chips this makes for an irresistible cheap meal when nobody feels like cooking or when something fresh, tasty and traditional is the thought for the day.

Lighthouse Restaurant

77 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5AU [Map]

Now six years (2004) into providing for the music-lovers of Aldeburgh (and others) the Lighthouse goes from strength to strength. Un-fussed, informal in tone and popular to the point of saturation, you need to be quick. Learn more

Now six years (2004) into providing for the music-lovers of Aldeburgh (and others) the Lighthouse goes from strength to strength. Un-fussed, informal in tone and popular to the point of saturation, you need to be quick. There is a daily change of menu so plenty of chance to make the best of availability and it will come as no surprise to discover that seafood is in the vanguard. However, if you want to maintain a balanced menu consider the potted Norfolk shrimps or dressed Cromer crab to start, followed by beef stroganoff with basmati rice and a vanilla crème brulee. Good selection of house wines at £14.95, or £2.75 a glass, with the remainder of an attractive list mostly at under £20.

152 Aldeburgh Restaurant

152 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5LD [Map]

Those concerned that the establishment of this corner of Suffolk as an opera-goers paradise might dilute irreparably the charm and haunting beauty of the area must be pleasantly surprised that some forty years on quite the reverse is true, and the legacy of Benjamin Britten added significantly to the character and the economy of this very special part of England.

Those concerned that the establishment of this corner of Suffolk as an opera-goers paradise might dilute irreparably the charm and haunting beauty of the area must be pleasantly surprised that some forty years on quite the reverse is true, and the legacy of Benjamin Britten added significantly to the character and the economy of this very special part of England.

Classical music and quality eating are close friends, so no surprise that the quality of eating out has grown dramatically, with restaurants like 152aldeburgh offering a cuisine that leans heavily on local produce and inspiration. Opening at 10am they are well known for the little delicacies that make re-entry into the everyday world that much more appealing - just try their organic pastries.

Lunch and dinner are served by a la carte and menu du jour menus and might include starters of escabeche of mackerel with new potato and chive salad, coarse pork and bacon terrine with bramley chutney and toasted brioche, and the famed Aldeburgh fish soup with rouille.

Main dishes may field herb crusted lamb cutlets, served with fine beans and dauphinoise potato, confit duck leg with spring greens and oyster mushrooms, or good honest fish and chips, with tartare sauce. Puddings are a real speciality of the house and layered lemon curd with coconut biscuit and raspberry jelly competes with a chocolate torte and marshmallow. Cheese buffs will delight in Suffolk Gold, Mrs Temple's Binham Blue and other soft, smelly and hard treats drawn from a wider background.

Both Andrew Lister and chef Garry Cook have international experience, and teamed up again in 2003 to open 152aldeburch, which has never looked back. They are a prime example of two capable people leading a small but dedicated team, and concentrating on doing just that, to great effect.
