Meals times are a battlefield in this house and there is always some sort of issue that turns what should be happy family time into something less than enjoyable.
If we are eating at home or out there are no exceptions and the only difference to being out is that my stress levels increase as I am all to aware of everyone else around us.
For me the biggest problem is waiting. I have the most impatient children and having to wait between courses is something they are not to keen on.
This is where the La Famiglia from Prezzo is a fantastic option and something we could wait to try out for ourselves.
We were asked to take up the #LaFamiglia challenge with Britmums and were more than happy to take up the challenge.
We headed of to our local Prezzo in Reigate and were settled by out super friendly waitress who immediately kept the little ones amused with a spot of colouring.
While the little ones were busy creating I looked over what La Famiglia had to offer.
The set meal consists a large sharing bowl of pasta and there is the choice of the classic spaghetti bolognese, spicy penne arrabbiata or a penne alla rusticana.
Two mouthwatering garlic breads, two side dishes of either fries, oils infused fries, mixed salad or rocket salad.
And lastly four soft drinks with the option to swap for house wine for an extra £7 and not forgetting pudding, there is either the choice of ice cream or sorbet.
The meal is aimed to feed two adults and two children so even with a large family such as mine at the great price of £30 for everything if we order double it would still work out a great deal cheaper then a meal out ordinary costs us.
Whist we chatted over our drinks it wasn’t long before our pasta arrabbiata and garlic bread arrived.
The children loved that they were able to help themselves to as much or as little as they wanted and to me this saved the whole argument about everything being eaten.
Pretty full there was of obviously sill room for desert.
There was a great selection of ice creams and sorbets to choose from but the salted chocolate sounded way to tempting for any of us to pass up on.
I would highly recommend trying out this great addition to Prezzo’s already fantastic menu.
The relaxed atmosphere and family friendly vibe put me at ease whilst we were there and I think tun would find it hard to beat the quality of food at such areasonable price.
