Like most families our weeks seem to fly by from one to the next, a busy jumble of school runs, work, to-do lists, chores, after-school activities and emergency fish fingers sandwiches. Weekends are just as hectic to be honest, only with a lot more football and laundry involved. Which is why school holidays are such a relief when they do come along, a chance for all of us to take a break from the usual routine and spend some family time having fun. This half term coincided with a bank holiday which meant even Daddy got the chance to kick back for a few days!
After a rare family trip to the cinema we headed to Prezzo with our tummies rumbling (Italian is the ONLY option we can all agree on when eating out). The La Famiglia sharing dish was just what the doctor ordered, no fussing about what who was having what, just a huge bowl of spaghetti bolognaise delivered to our table pronto! There are 4 pasta dishes to choose from so something to suit every family. Dishing out for the family in a restaurant setting is a genius idea – everyone gets to enjoy a family style meal together just how they like it – from the spaghetti monster who always asks for extra pasta to the one who insists on having the sauce on the left, minus the cooking and washing up! Plus no food envy whinging (guilty!) and because everyone is served just the right amount, no wastage – ooh we like that a lot! Along with a couple of garlic flatbreads, we found the portion size perfect for 2 adults and 2 children, leaving just enough room for that all important dessert!
Eating out at Prezzo was a real treat made extra special by all the little details. Prompt friendly service, kids puzzle sheets (with one side for younger children and slightly trickier puzzles on the other side for older kids – such a fab idea!), delicious food, oh and I have to mention the dessert menu of dreams! I couldn’t choose between the Chocolate & Sea Salt Gelato or the Salted Caramel Arctic Slice so in the interests of, ahem, research I thought I should try both. I am pleased to report they were both delicious and I still can’t choose a favourite!
Thanks to the staff at Prezzo Milton Keynes Stadium for making our visit so special – a perfect way to share some family time together.

We received a complimentary La Famiglia dish to enjoy for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own and honest.
