My boyfriend took me here for a surprise lunch one day and it was the most romantic meal we have ever had! We travelled up from Bournemouth - The hotel overlooks a beautiful castle (Which is a hotel!) and has beautiful vines running over the outside area- My partner is gluten free and they had a great menu - The...

On the night we visited the staff were incredibly busy as a result of unexpected staff absence. They were literally not stopping and yet managed to maintain a happy demeanour. Our food was a little late being delivered, but the staff could not have been more apologetic. They did everything in their power to make up for what could otherwise... More

Visited one Saturday afternoon- the staff were generally disinterested and there were chefs wandering round, drinking coffee, eating food etc in the front of house areas. Service was slow despite the quiet restaurant. Wouldn't visit again.

This was the first time we'd been to a Prezzo restaurant and had heard good things about it from friends prior to our visit. We had no preconceptions but rather the expectation of good food in a good atmosphere. As we were there to celebrate our sons' birthdays we found that we could get a voucher online for a free...

We'd never eaten in a Prezzo before. Arrived about 9pm having not booked. We were seated fine and had our drinks order taken, so far so good. The menu was quite extensive and the choice looked good. Afraid to say the positives stopped there. Our drinks were quickly dispensed but were left on the bar area for too long before... More

It is rare for me to give five stars to a chain restaurant, but this one ticked all the boxes. Situated just next to Oxford Castle along with the four or five others set round a square. The restaurant is modern and clean. As a family of five we had a variety of dishes and our two grand children liked... More

We had a lovely evening meal here, where the staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The garlic bread with balsamic onions to start was amazing even for my son who says he doesn't like onions. Rest of our meals were great also and we thoroughly enjoyed the Italian cheeseboard too

Went here on a sunday night, arriving at around 7.30 pm. The restaurant was around 1/3rd full. First alarm bell was that we were shown to the worst table in the house - nearest the entrance, nearest the loo and next to the kitchen. We asked to move to another table ( which seemed to surprise the waiting staff) and... More

One would expect a chain with an upward market aspiration could do better. Nice setting in front of the Castle/ex-prison but maybe it is a bit out of the buzz. Expensively fitted out and furnished. A Thursday lunchtime at 12:30 so shouldn't be a graveyard shift. Empty to start but a few more tables were occupied as time passed. No... More

love_prezzo, Guest Relations Manager at Prezzo - Oxford, responded to this review

Thank you for visiting our restaurant. We are really sorry to hear you found our food disappointing. This is not what we expect, nor is it an example of our best. We wouldn't like this to be your last experience of Prezzo and would be delighted if you were to come back and see how good we can be. More

The manager was very helpful when we arrived quite early for our table booking. He talked through the menu which helped us make our choices..
