Great dinner

Went for dinner with some friends and we loved it. We had to wait for about forty minutes for a table but we forgot to book. The hostess was very helpful, the food was just amazing and desserts were faultless. Good portions and friendly staff, my glass of water was never empty.

My friends tell me this is an Auckland institution and I can see why. The food and service were both great. Atmosphere is also great. We sat outside and with the heaters were really warm even though it was a winter evening. Would definitely recommend.

This is one of my go to places. I have been going here for years. First time was just for dessert on a date 29 years ago. Anti pasto my favorite.

We were looking for a very good Italian restaurant in Auckland and chose Prega after reading all the good reviews. We weren't disappointed. The service was very considerate and friendly and although we had to wait 30 minutes for a table we always felt very welcomed and taken care off. The food was very good. Especially the first course and... More

We came here on a whim early one weekend evening. the place was heaving with families and hipsters alike but we didn't have to wait for a table. ordered pizza, green salad and seafood pasta to share with our four year old and one year old. we've eaten at some excellent restaurants in our time (pre-kids!) but all dishes were...

We wanted to love a restaurant in Ponsonby and looked and looked. We think the neighborhood is probably overrated, so the rent is high, and the food mediocre. The server was very friendly but not very efficient. Finally, each dish sported some orthoganol pairing of ingredients like crasins with olives.

On quick business trip decided to venture out of CBD and stumbled across Prego. The food was sensational. Tender calamari to start with and a beautiful steak cooked to perfection. Our waiter was engaging and recommend a wine that took us away from our initial preference of a Pinot Noir to a GSM from spain that absolutely hit the mark.... More

We eat at Prego a couple of times each month and always find the experience excellent. The staff are very professional and expert in their food and wine knowledge. The food is exceptional and never fails to please, the same can be said for the wine list. We prefer to sit outside as it can be very noisy inside, particularly... More

I took a group of five for pre dinner drinks only. Got there and had a look at the menu and promptly ordered the antipasto platter and it was delicious.. The service was great and knowledgeable. There is a good reason why restaurants like this endure.

We've been here before for dinner and were blown away. Today we went for lunch and were blown away again. We decided to share the margharita pizza between the three of us, and also shared the broadbill fish on risotto. Jaw droppingly exceptional. We then followed up with the rubharb creme brulee. I don't like rubharb as a rule, but... More
