“Always a great night out. Fab food and service”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Prego is consistently a great place for dinner. It takes families, business diners, and small and large groups of friends. You can't book, but they have a bar area for drinking and waiting.

The wine list has a good range from various countries, and includes a broad range of prices too.

The food is always of a high standard. The service is prompt and polite, and not too intrusive.

Only negative is the acoustics. It can get very noisy. Also note the toilets are upstairs. Not sure if they have a downstairs disabled toilet, but may pay to check if you aren't that mobile.

“best meal we had in auckland”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

we found prego on Ponsonby street today and went back for dinner. we did not have to wait for a table but it was full on a monday. i had the rocket salad to start which was good followed by salmon with linguine in a rocket pesto. it was wonderful. my husband got the whole cooked snapper and that was fantastic along with a side of linguine that was bigger than my main pasta. the prices re reasonable and the food is excellent. there is a lovely little courtyard that was lit up by lights in the tree above. would definitely go back. our waiter was attentive but not intruding. all in all a delight. easy to get to by public bus or taxi from downtown. we walked it is about 2 miles.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel concierge and it was a stellar recommendation! The restaurant had a really friendly but busy vibe to it and the staff were on top of their game. Extensive drinks list and our meals were delicious and served quite promptly. Would love to go there on a chilly winter's night and be warmed up by the ambience and hearty food.
