Prezzo instead

This evening we planned to eat out at Gallipoli Again. This involved the usual intricate timing as I joined the 43 bus at the clock tower on with Tigger already aboard.

Illuminated trees at St Mary’s Church

We left the bus at St Mary’s Church where I photographed the illuminated trees.

When we reached Gallipoli Again, it looked crowded and a group reached the door just before us so we decided to give up on it.

Islington Square

Instead we entered the inappropriately named Islington Square (once the local post office and sorting office, now redeveloped as a sort of mall with residential blocks). It too was decorated with illuminations.

Prezzo Italian Restaurant

In there is a branch of the Italian restaurant chain, Prezzo. We were glad to see that it was not at all crowded.

Inside Prezzo

We settled at a table and consulted the menu. The only point of criticism I have is that the ambient music was too loud and as the venue is echoey like a barn, that made things worse.

English tea

What do you drink with your meal in an Italian restaurant? Personally, I drink tea, even if it is only the teabag kind.

On the way out

We left the way we had come, along the illuminated mall. There were very few people about at this hour. Suits me.

St Mary’s Church

We crossed the road to St Mary’s Church. Even in the dark it is impressive though I was too close for a good photo.

Looking back at Islington Square

I took a last photo of the façade and entrance of Islington Square decorated with globe-shaped lights for Christmas.

The bus stop

There is a bus stop just in front on the church and here we waited for a number 30 to take us home. We had just a few minutes to wait.

Aboard the 30

The bus duly came and carried us quickly back to the Angel and home. Thus ended today but the weekend starts here!
