“Great Italian food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went to Prego's with friends (8 of us) and had a great meal. They do so much so well that it is surprising for such a reasonably priced place. I had the mussels followed by the lamb chops and both were beautiful. The mussels rivalled anything I have had in Dubai (including Wheelers and the Belgian Beer Cafe). It is a full-on Italian menu with ample choices of pastas, pizzas, meat dishes and seafood. My wife had fish and enjoyed it. The service was great - the wine kept coming and was reaonably priced also. Just a simple good night out.

“Food of the Gods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Prego's is a fairly large open plan restaurant, it is lively and busy. On the night we visited there were a large number of families with small children, so if you are looking for a quite romantic restaurant, this is not the one. The service was attentive, although it did leave you to decide the timing of when you wanted each course. This is a great plus point as you do not want to be rushed through your meal. The food was heavenly!! I started with the Parma Ham and my husband had the beef carpaccio, we followed this by both having the breaded veal chop, which was melt in the mouth tender. It had been beaten flat and thinly coated in breadcrumbs, even though quite thin it still was pink in the middle, mouth watering moist, and I can say without hesitation one of the nicest meals I have eaten. The menu is extensive, as is the wine list, which covers all price ranges. I fyou are looking for a really great Italian meal, this is the place.

“Really enjoyable italian meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We really love Italian food and I just got my new Rotana exclusive card so we visited Prego's on a Tuesday evening. I'd say the restaurant finds itself somewhere between casual and formal dining, it isnt particularly elegant but its nice enough, it's also fine for families. We were really pleasently surprised with the food quality, inparticular my sea bass was delicious. My partner had the steak and said he should know better than to have steak in a non steak restaurant but did enjoy it. The cheese were really good too and the bread with parmasan and garlic dip was great although I think we were already full as a result when the mains arrived! The bill, particularly after my discount was more than reasonable and we'll definitely be going back.
