Reservations would have helped the night we were there, but the staff found us a table on the patio in a short amount of time. This is obviously a popular place. The food and service were excellent. The restaurant is not in the center of Auckland, but the city buses pass right outside the door so it is easy to get there. This is a great place for a special night out.

Good venue and nice outdoor area which is screened from the road by a solid wall. Casual and reasonable and my preferred place to take people on Ponsonby Road. Casual and no booking required. Service is excellent. Menu largely Italian.

Coming back for years: still good, not everything exciting, but always down to earth: excellent ingredients, mostly tasty sauces (not so good when they don't "follow the Italian way/gusto")....

If you head for character you are right at Prego Restaurant.

We decided to go out for a family celebration. We asked for a table for four. They gave us a time. When we got there (5 minutes before the set time) they had given our table away because we weren't there! The bar was packed and with our 2 children we had gone for a walk instead of waiting for 30 minutes in the busy bar area. When they finally sorted out our table we ordered 3 mains and some appetizers. The overall quality was average and the portions were ridiculously small compared to the value. The glass of wine was quite small as well. The bill did not include service, which is quite unusual in Auckland and not very nice. They are nothing like the top restaurant they are known to be, and very far from the italian style and quality their menue and name would like to suggest. Note: the appetizers were called "primi" on the menue, which is the italian name for first course (pasta, risotto or soup), nothing to do with appetizers!
