Still the best pizza and coffee in Auckland

This has become a regular stop-over on our way home from the airport for a glass of wine - coffee, and a pizza. We've been doing this for years and never been disappointed, the staff, service and food are consistently just great.

My favourite place that makes one of the yummiest chicken fettucine (and tiramisu). Love a restaurant where even though it is always so busy its staff are still friendly and professional. Our waitress was funny and very helpful. Chefs are always very accommodating when we request to make slight changes to the meals, AND their food is soooo delish! The... More

You cannot beat Prego for consistency, great food and drinks, attentive staff, and its child-friendly policy. We have never been let down when we visit Prego - except if it is so busy that you have wait for a table. My dish this time was a perfect blue cod risotto while my husband devoured his impressive Prego pie, and we... More

Loved celebrating my birthday at Prego, right from the warm welcome it was a great experience. Excellent food, wine and service.

Dined at Prego twice, each time sitting out on their great private, heated front patio and had a great meal. Service was a little iffy the second time, but likely more a waiter issue. The thin-crust pizza is wonderful, and the wine selection nice too.

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.

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
