Hamiltons is located on the Georgian Brunswick Terrace, near Greenhill on Weymouth seafront, with a stunning view of Weymouth Bay.
The business was originally established in 1965 by Domenico d'Agostino from Monte Cassino in Italy as an ice cream parlour and café. It is now in the hands of his two sons, Marco and Ernesto, and is very much a family concern. During the day you can still purchase anything from a cappuccino to a delicious Home-made pasta dish, however in the evening the premises transform into a stylish a la carte restaurant.
Hamilton's chef, Marco trained under the world famous Anton Mossimann at the Dorchester hotel in London. Marco's culinary training and expertise is reflected in his work with innovative and ever changing menus, always using the finest ingredients, including freshly caught local seafood.
Ernesto ensures the smooth running of the restaurant. He also trained as a chef and with an excellent knowledge of wines, his recommendations are often welcomed by regular customers.

Prezzo, Weymouth, Weymouth
Prezzo restaurants are of particular appeal to those who like genuine Italian cuisine, and they use only the best seasonal products, many of which are imported directly from Italy. The menu includes pizza, pasta, risotto, grilled meats, fresh salads and frequently changing specials. The freshly baked breads, like the garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, are perfect for sharing and give you adequate breathing space to order starters to follow. Crab cakes served with garlic mayonnaise or grilled goat's cheese with plum tomatoes and caramelised onions on foccacia bread with a balsamic glaze set the tone for a hearty meal. Best fun is to order an antipasto platter to share made up from seven well loved Italian nibbles. Find pastas such as the unusual penne con salmone, with oak-roasted salmon, broccoli and fresh chillies in a red pesto and cream sauce, or firm favourites like spaghetti with meatballs, spaghetti Bolognese, and fusilli al pesto, asparagus spears with field mushrooms and roasted peppers in a basil pesto sauce. Amongst the special pastas, the pollo mariano, seasoned chicken, pepperoni sausage, roasted peppers and fusilli in tomato sauce, is interesting and different.
Italian menus would be incomplete without risotto, like tiger prawns with petits pois in a creamy saffron sauce. Classic pizzas embrace, among a wide selection, the popular napoletana, topped with yellowfin tuna, tomato, white anchovies, capers, red onion, mozzarella and marinated olives, and the much loved quattro stagioni - pepperoni sausage, prosciutto ham, artichoke, field mushrooms, capers, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato. Specials could include the pollo Siciliana, char-grilled chicken breast, prosciutto ham and plum tomato slices, baked with their blend of cheese, only one example from the many tempting offerings that come out from the Prezzo kitchens. You can accompany the food with a variety of tipples, though for many, Italian food requires Italian wines to be enjoyed to the full, ranging from house wine through Morellino di Scansano and Prosecco to liqueurs and beer, and there is espresso or fresh ground coffee to wind up an enjoyable meal, in company with a glass of grappa or sambuca. This is Italian food at its attractive best, convincing and bringing together the traditional with the modern twist or two against a background of excellent value.
