Almost gave 5 stars, the interior was clean and nice, but nothing special. The restaurant is on the popular Ponsonby street and tables are inside a small walled area. The place was full, so it's a popular restaurant and I can understand why. The food is advertized as italian, and the waitress was really helpful pointing out the best choices... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner, The best thing about Prego is its consistency! The menu is simple without being complicated, not extensive just easy and everything covered. We sat outside and it was a little cool in the evening but they had the gas heaters on which kept it nice. Caprese salad to start was with lovely fresh mozzarella.... More

We were seated next to the door in a cool spring weather, for our anniversary date. But as our entrées arrived, all discomfort was simply forgotten. The food was the bomb! Nothing to fault for ALL our dishes. Great Italian foods at great prices! Yum!

Perfect Ponsonby road restaurant. I've been going there since I was 5 - 20 years ago and will keep going! Family, couples, friends - all perfect. Drinks and food never fail. Perfect

Our first visit in Auckland NZ, strolling on Ponsonby road on our second night and found Prego. Presentation of my salmon was lovely!

If you are looking for consistency of excellence Prego simply never lets you down. Despite nearly always being busy it just continues to deliver in both its fantastic service (best in Auckland), ambience and its food. Both my wife and I are regular visitors and we just love this place. The freshness of the food and taste sets it apart... More

I had heard amazing things about Prego so we gave it a try. The staff were amazing, the service was really good, however unfortunately the mains were a bit bland. Again, heard great things about the food but there were 6 of us and only 2 of the main meals were "amazing". The remaining 4 were just a bit bland... More

We were here for a 60th birthday celebration dinner with friends. Had a couple of drinks at the Bar before being seated. The Wait Staff were polished and attentive. Our orders were taken, entrees arrived and later three of four mains were delivered. It appeared that one of the meals had been either left off the order or simply forgotten... More

I'd not been to Prego for about 2 years until last night when I suggested to a girlfriend over from Sydney we meet there. It was simply outstanding! From the food and wine to the outstanding service we received from all the staff.
