First visit to Prego and certainly not the last! Busy place with great atmosphere. Excellent service. The food was very good to excellent. We particularly liked the duck risotto. Of note, no reservations for dinner. Be prepared to wait.

We sat outside even though it was chilly, we had an overhead heater and blankets and were there for lunch. Our local friends took us there and they are regulars. We had great service without it being too invasive. There is something for everyone on the menu from traditional meals to pizza. We all enjoyed our lunch a lot. I... More

The outdoor seating is nice. The veal was well cooked with the heading of risotto and the started were also good. Upscale and certainly not cheap but worth the cost.

Went here on a whim with friends and loved it! Because it was Italian, I was slightly nervous about going in gluten free but they catered for me fantastically. The wait staff were friendly and fast. The meal - although a bit expensive was devine! I will definitely return.

For entrees you really can't beat the calamari and the garlic flat bread. Both are served with an aioli which is divine. For my main I had the king fish with risotto. Service was fantastic and I'm already looking forward to returning.

Went there for dinner. It was packed out and had to wait for at least 30 mins in order to get a table. Was definitely worth waiting. Amazing service followed by our Faultless food. Our waiter "Tall Kiwi Guy" completely forgot his name. He was exceptional in terms of Service. Definitely will be returning back soon. Thoroughly looked after

Popped in for dinner before a meeting which we mentioned to the waiter. He made sure that our meals would be out quickly. And sure enough it was, quickest pizza I've ever had served in a restaurant! Highly recommend the capricciosa pizza - delicious! Service was simple and efficient, very accommodating when we said one of our group would be... More

Took 12 people to Prego for a birthday celebration and could find fault with nothing. The food was outstanding, the table area discreet so as not to annoy any other diners and large enough to very comfortably seat everyone, and the service and staff just wonderful. 12 people with 12 different dishes and not one of them could be faulted....
