The New La Famiglia sharing dish at Prezzo #PrezzoLaFamiglia


Eating out with the family can not only be a challenge but can be an expensive hobby too.

Prezzo is a restaurant that my Dad raves about but we had never been and I was even more surprised to find one locally to us in Wimborne which is set over two floors in a gorgeous Georgian Villa.

Prezzo Wimborne has not one, but five dining rooms to choose from, with each having its own unique style. I was pleased to find that the building has kept the original features like fireplaces, chandeliers and cornicing in combination with everything you would hope to find in a modern restaurant.

It is obviously a very popular restaurant as it filled up very quickly after we arrived but that did not take away from the service. Our waiter couldn’t have been more helpful, taking our drinks order first and supplying the kids with those all important activity sheets which contained crosswords, word searches, colouring and a space to draw.

We were invited to Prezzo to try their new La Famiglia sharing dish –a choice of a bowl of Penne Arrabiata, Spaghetti Bolognese, Spaghetti Carbonara or Penne Alla Rusticana, with two sides, big enough to feed up to four people. After a bit of discussion we decided upon the Penne Alla Rusticana a dish containing seasoned chicken, pancetta, peppers and rosemary in a creamy pomodoro sauce with a portion of chips and some salad.. As there was five of us we also ordered a pizza for Isaac as he is not a fan of pasta.


The food arrived within ten minutes and we were left with four bowls and some tools to serve it out amongst us. I have to say that the food was delicious and more than enough for four of us – in fact Hubby ended up clearing everyone’s plates at the end as we couldn’t finish it all.


Of course, it had all been a ploy by the kids to get Daddy to finish their dinner – they had left some room in order to get some dessert.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Prezzo and with the La Famiglia sharing bowl costing just £18.90 it is an inexpensive way to treat the kids to a meal out. We certainly be visiting again as it is a fabulous excuse to take a walk around Wimborne to work off all that food afterwards.

The Prezzo restaurant chain has more than 280 restaurants across the UK in shapes and sizes ranging from old libraries to harbourside eateries taking in the view.

  1. Oh sounds delicious. What a great idea to do a sharing plate. Knowing my partner though there would be none to share and he’d take the big bowl for himself. x

  2. I love the look of this as it appears more like a home cooked family meal 🙂

    yours sounds a lot fancier than my local one, I’ve been a few times though and it’s always busy. They just need to work on their people skills here, plus we had the La Famiglia but no salad! Gutted as I felt I’d failed in mum stakes not getting any veg into their meal. It was nice though, wold be great to see them add a fish pasta sharing dish too.

  4. We have a Prezzo in the town we live and visit often, I have never been with my children before though. This is amazing value and great for a family meal out xx

  5. SO GOOD! We loved the sharing dish – it made it so easy and hassle free. Love the kids saving room for pudding – we are kindred spirits!

    Looks lovely here! I do love italian food, so might have to go again soon 🙂 Think I have been once!

  7. Kirsty says:

  8. Vicky says:

    It sounds so yummy. My friend and I considered sharing one recently. We both love food but in the end like Isaac she went for pizza.

    We love Prezzo! Italian is one of our favourites so we go to our local one, we will have to check out the sharing options there!

  10. I love Prezzo and this new family sharing dish sounds amazing! We tend to struggle when we go out to find something for all 6 of us but the children would love this!

  11. Prezzo is great and that sharing pasta dish looks amazing. It looks like the kids really enjoyed it as well! x

    Looks like a lot of tasty fun – commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part.

    So nice that the building has retained its original features and charm, despite now being used as a commercial property. Looks like you had a lovely meal out x

  14. Talya says:

    Oh yummy my tummy is rumbling as I read this what a fab and fuss free offering for the whole family…such a crowd pleaser!

  15. Jen says:

    I’ve been tempted to try Prezzo, but not managed yet. That meal is really good, and great value. It would be the kind of thing that would work well for our bunch.

  16. Cathy Glynn says:

    This looks such a great idea, love that there is plenty to go around. Like you coming from a big family it can be difficult and expense eating out x

  17. Toria says:

    That looks delicious! I definitely think my family would love to try that out AND we’ve just had a Prezzo open up right by school 😀 Definitely booking a table for my husbands birthday next week!

    Btw, I love the graphics on your blog, it looks so pretty 🙂

  18. Lubka Henry says:

    The pasta and the salad look very good. I need to visit Prezzo soon 🙂

  19. I love the idea of sharing plates for the family. My little one is only small but I reckon the 3 of us could polish one off. I haven’t been to Prezzo in years but we always drive past one in Romsey that looks really nice so will have to make a pit stop and try it out.

  20. Kitty Morris says:

    this is such a good idea, giant sharing plates! The nearest Prezzo to me is a good hour away but I think they need a visit

  21. I Love Prezzo! Such a great restaurant. Been loads of times
