Prego Masquerades as an Italian Restaurant

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... read 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

We went there early enough, 6.45pm, and were told there was a 1 1/2 hour wait for a table in a non welcoming manner which made us suspect they hoped we wouldn't wait. We opted to stay and after 15 minutes got 3 seats at the bar right in front of the barman. After another 30 minutes we had still... More

I grew up in Auckland and used to eat at Prego with my family - it was my FAVOURITE restaurant right up there with Killarney St. We would sit outside, I would order the spag bol and come out covered in sauce and very satisfied! I recently moved back to Auckland for a short period of time and ended up... More

We enjoyed our meal at Prego. We were greeted with warm smiles and had an attentive and fun server. We had the beet root salad, pizza, a nice New Zealand Pinto Gris wine sticky date pudding with mild ginger ice cream for desert. I would rate the salad and wine as excellent and pizza as pretty good. The sticky date... More
