The waiter knew his stuff - and the service and food excellent

We've been here on a number of precious occasions and teh standard is always excellent. The whole fish that was recommended was magnificent, and my husband's eye fillet was cooked to perfection (he likes it well done!) Beautiful gelato and tiramisu.

Friendly service but all three dishes we had were mediocre (and expensive). There are better Italian options in town.

I asked the Sofitel hotel for a tablecloth, fine dining Italian with a good wine list. Prague is not really Italian, nor did it have tablecloths and it was more casual than fine dining. To the good side was the food was tasty, the wine list well priced, and the service was excellent. To the bad side is it is... More

I was recommended to try this restaurant so gave it a go, on Valentines Day. The restaurant does not take reservations but was quick to give us a table after 20 mins (wait time suggested initially was 45 mins). There was a good selection of wines (restaurant is not BYO, like many are in New Zealand). Had the fish (oven... More

Nothing fancy, just hearty Italian inspired fare, served with some of the most consistently good service in Auckland. For us, it's the yard stick by which we judge all other restaurants.

The Italian food at Prego is excellent but what made it for us was the waiter. Our American waiter couldn't have taken more trouble to answer our questions and gave very helpful advice. Prego is buzzy and busy. Great place to go.

After a bit of a rude welcome indicating a 45 minute wait we left but went back and decided to wait. Had a great Pinot Noir while waiting at the bar and after 40 minutes were seated. Had a great Italian meal in a fun environment. Quite expensive.

We had our family wedding celebration lunch at Prego at the end of Dec and the best choice we made was having it at Prego! From day one they were so accommodating, even though our group was bigger then the max they could fit they still managed to work around it and fit us all in. Food was amazing and... More

There weren't many restaurants open in Ponsonby so we took another go at Prego after having had a bad experience for lunch the previous year. The food was Terrible. It tasted as if it had been sitting under glad warp on a plate in the back of the fridge for four days and then reheated in a microwave. "Off" sauce... More
