You know how much you really love your family when you’re willing to share one big bowl of pasta with all of them. Only if you are pasta fanatics as we are, of course. So are you ready for the challenge? We were! 1 bowl of pasta, 4 people, including a starving after school 5-year-old little girl and a bottomless tummy 1-year-old baby boy. May the hunger games begin…
OK, yeah, that’s a bit too dramatic, but last Friday we had a really good time being able to try the new #PrezzoLaFamiglia dishes. Basically, you’ve got 4 options to choose from: Penne Arrabiata, Spaghetti Bolognese, Spaghetti Carbonara or Penne Alla Rusticana. I always like to try new things but every time I do my expectations are not met.
So on this occasion, we thought we would go for a safe option, especially since we were with the kids, and choose a Bolognese or a Carbonara. But then we decided to check with the waitress, who we must say was very friendly throughout the whole night, and asked for the Rusticana. We hadn’t tried that one before.
We definitely picked right this time! Everyone loved it. Our little J was amazed by the size of the bowl and we actually got a few looks from other people in the Restaurant. They probably thought we were quite hungry or quite stingy…lol -a bit of both maybe!-
It worked out really well cause choosing a kids meal for each one of our children is usually a waste of money, and making them share one sometimes it doesn’t fit right; so with #PrezzoLaFamiglia we were able to fill us up, grown-ups and little ones.
For a second I thought we would all make a mess sharing 1 big bowl of pasta but luckily for us, only our 1-year-old was responsible for any food waste. We love when you can eat out with the kids at a pleasantly and child-friendly environment. We’re happy we visited the Prezzo Restaurant at Manchester Media City. Right just outside the restaurant area, you’ve got those lovely views and gardens where our little ones had a lovely time running up and down, burning that big bowl of pasta. And obviously, us, chasing them after, burning a few calories too.
When we got home that night J was saying her prayer before going to bed and said how grateful she was for going out and playing with mummy and daddy. At the end, for me, that’s all that really matters. 🙂
