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 ciabatta 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 alla rusticana, seasoned chicken, pancetta bacon, roasted peppers and fresh rosemary in a tomato and cream 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 oak roast salmon and petits pois in a creamy saffron sauce.
Classic pizzas embrace, among a wide selection, the popular fiorentina, topped with spinach, free-range egg, grana padano cheese, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato, 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.

Here's an Indian restaurant that has encompassed all the culinary regions of India in its menu, and with fantastic results too. Spice Merchant is spread across the South East with four restaurants, each with a distinctive style and décor, although the quality of the food is the same as ever, top notch. The element of chic along with the friendly staff and the unusual items on the menu, make this a popular dining spot amongst locals and visitors.
The typical tikkas and curries make their presence felt, but it is the innovative and deeply regional dishes that really grab your attention. Maybe you could start with the nalli barra, lamb osso bucco in masala with a tinge of pineapple, and then move on to main course of rajwada gosht, a royal preparation of lamb cooked with whole spices. Other specialities include spiced lobster with saffron and the wine list is commendable, featuring a number of compatible choices.
24 Chalfont Road, Seer Green, Beaconsfield, HP9 2YG [Map]
As you travel by the main Chalfont road through the village of Seer Green, you cannot miss the quaint 170 year old building housing The Jolly Cricketers pub. The tavern accommodates two bars and cricket paraphernalia adorns the walls. The garden area at the rear of the building is ideal for al fresco dining and beer festivals which are conducted periodically. Four hand pumps, three for ales from local breweries and one for cider are at hand to serve guests.
Begin your innings with smoked mackerel pate, pickled cucumber and soft quail's egg served with toast and warm salad of wood pigeon, toasted hazelnuts, apple and beetroot before settling into slow braised shoulder of beef, creamed potatoes and rich red wine sauce and wild mushroom risotto, truffle mascarpone. To end your meal order plum and ginger crumble with Amaretto custard and warm vanilla rice pudding, poached pear and ice cream.

The Crazy Bear Beaconsfield is a meticulously restored 15th century coaching inn, rated by Conde Nast as one of the 'best new hotels in the world'. The decor is luxurious and opulent and provides diners and guests with the feeling of unmitigated indulgence. So you could savour Beluga caviar with vintage Krug in an intimate crystal studded leather booth or sit down to a twelve plate Thai tasting menu, or snack on Aberdeen Angus mini burgers on the terrace beside the pool.
In the English restaurant, diners enjoy dishes like confit belly of home reared Gloucestershire Old Spot pork with Lyme Bay scallops, apple, chorizo and crispy potato. The vegetarian menu includes delights such as goats' curd and beetroot salad, and caramelised shallot tatin with rocket and aged balsamic. There's also a set lunch menu which changes monthly featuring recipes and ingredients from the Crazy Bear farm and farm shop. Sunday lunch is extremely popular, served from midday till 10pm.
At the Thai restaurant you could try crispy duck salad with mango, roasted cashews, pomegranate, spring onions, and cherry tomatoes, and steamed red snapper with lemongrass, galangal, chillies, garlic, kaffir lime leaves and coriander.
Leading mixologists create some interesting cocktails at the bar including Crazy Bear exclusives such as the Foaming Mojito and Mad Hatter's Tea Party. For those who might want to combine dinner with an overnight stay, ten luxurious bedroom suites are available.

If you like wholesome, fresh and reliable seafood caught and reared under carefully controlled conditions, well presented in unfussy surroundings, and you enjoy being well looked after by pleasant staff, Loch Fyne is for you.
There is an increasing awareness of other food staples with an extended choice of meat dishes, but it is the original fare upon which their success was created that prevails. Loch Fyne kippers, a fine bouillabaisse, braden rost, kiln-roasted salmon fillet, and the toothsome oysters on ice, with a selection of accompaniments, all are to be found throughout the various restaurants, as well as Glen Fyne 21 day aged rib-eye steak and Scottish smoked venison. There is invariably a well-travelled wine list available which is sensible, both in content and prices.
Loch Fyne's greatest achievement has been to prove to a sceptical populace that chains or conglomerates can be made to work in the eating-out public's best interests.
