Ever feel like you have deserve a treat of andante pasta, delicious ice cream sponge desserts (as below), and some creamy nibbles?

Straight after a tiring day of college, a friend and I headed straight for Prezzo, Harborne and were immediately buzzing from the modern decor in the dominating clock tower of the high street. Greeted by the warmth of light and chatter in Prezzo, even the giggles of families enjoying a quality meal after exhausting days at work, we couldn’t wait to get tucked in!

With an online student voucher on hand, who wouldn’t experiment with the plush crab cakes (above), garlic risotto (below) and creamy Pomodoro, all with the bustling view of Harborne High street, (although Prezzo also accommodates for those wishing for a more sophisticated view of the “square”).

Prezzo seems fit for many, whether a romantic date, family celebration, or student stress relief, tables of two or booths of 8 can be booked here: go treat yourself with dazzling decor and smiling staff. For a good price, why not indulge away from the usual pizza express (well that’s what I needed anyway)!

Su Gigante in Sardegna, Italy (Restaurant Review)

Follow my blog with bloglovin

The restaurant Su Giganti, situated amongst the beautiful hills of Sardegna, Italy, is a restaurant (attatched to a hotel) which serves desirable, fresh, locally sourced seafood for a reasonable price.


From the range of starters, (from the more simplistic, classic, sweet honeydew melon combination with parma ham (photo above), to the more adventurous calamari dish) as a family, we shared the mixed seafood starter platter. The best feature was the refreshing, vinegar soaked octopus. Yum!

Seafood highly featured in my family’s meals. (Can you tell we are seafood lovers?!) The softly grilled seabass was delicious, and was accompanied by prawns, octopus and squid (what a range!) in the mixed seafood dish.

 In contrast, more andante pasta accompanied the fresh, high quality lobster for two (one portion depicted below). Warning: only to be tackled by those with patience to extract the lobster from the shells. No work, no reward! In my opinion, it was definitely worth the effort!

A highly recommended restaurant if you find yourself exploring Villasimus, Italy and looking for a good variety of meals. It is suitable for a family of all ages, and a perfect taster of the food Sardegna has to offer.
