Celebrated my birthday at Prezza last night w my husband. Loved it. Wasn't stuffy so my husband was comfortable yet was quite elegant enough for me. Food from bread to coffee was amazing. Warm ciabatta served w a smooth olive oil and assortmt of olives. Split a warm baby spinach salad w pancetta, pecorino, homemade croutons and a lemmony vinaigrette. Salad served on 2 huge plates so no need to order your own. I had the seafood stew which was absolutely the best I've ever had. Included the most tender calamari, huge shrimp, scallop, fish, mussels, lobster, grilled bread in a tomato saffron broth. He had a wood grilled swordfish over chickpeas and braised greens.Must have been 3 inches thick and cooked to perfection. Portions were ample so unfortunately had no room for dessert. Service wasn't perfect. Although our Italian waiter was charming it took quite some time to get the wine and he forgot my side of broccoli rabe. The service in no way overshadowed our excellent dining experience there.I would go back in a heartbeat.
