Dilli meets London @ Prezzo (from the London Diary)

A shopping spree at Harrow led the girlies to St. Georges Shopping Centre for a much needed lunch at Prezzo (serving Italian cuisine). For vegetarians it is rocket science to read through that menu and stay sane to order.
The girlies managed. (These girlies o'course are Skeety and the Nuttiest Nut)15 minutes of consultation and contemplation later they ordered some fries and Mozzarella in Carrozza with Podomoro sauce. Mozzarella in Carozza is essentially Mozzarella cheese deep-fried in breadcrumbs served with a tomato-based pomodoro sauce. And ofcourse coke.
The Mozzarella in Carrozza was a bite of heaven! It was made to perfection and served at just the right tempature.
They then ordered a Margherita Pizza for the main course from the Calzone menu which Prezzo offers. The Pizza was nice and that's about all Skeety would like to say about it.The array of sinful desserts they serve could not tempt the two tummies to overeat after stuffing in the above.
As for the service, the staff were a little indifferent even when the restaurant had only three tables occupied at that hour.
When the food is excellent, ambience a classic and staff resembles a mouth blister, it seems as if the cake has been robbed of that fabulous piece of decor. Sigh!
P.S.: This is one of the few posts from Skeety's London Diary which may be written about here when Skeety so desires.

The Prezzo that is 50 yards away from my flat has the most boring food ever. The risotto is always undercooked, the pizza too crisp and the pasta often either too dry or too running. If it wasnt for their Calzone [of which they do only 1 kind], I wouldn't ever go there!

Thanks Skeeter. Busy 3 months ahead of course for me, hopefully I will recover faster than I am managing now. All the exhaustion caught up with me at once after I landed here.

Dilli, I haven't seen yet at all! I flew straight to Bangalore and back. If kids are willing someday I will bring them to see the "Golden triangle" there and you of course! :)

Enjoy all the Prezzos, see you in Fall. My girl is officially a high school graduate this Saturday!Hurray!! One more to go!!;D

I did sample Italian food in India during my last trip in March. I had Oliviers in Ludhiana ,the food was good and the selection was just nice. It probably wasn't as extensive as what I'd get in KL or even Delhi for that matter but quite notable for an upcoming town like Ludhiana.

I can't get enough of the food at Prezzo, pure Italian comfort food. In my opinion there should be a Prezzo restaurant on every street corner.
