“Not impressed!!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

the food is good, but the service seriously has problems. I set for 30 minutes and asked 3 waiters for attention, only to find out that they somehow did not care. When I went to speak to the restaurant manager, then they starting giving due attention.

Will not suggest it.....Oliva Restaurant is by far better and in the same price bracket!!!

“Food mediocre - service dreadful”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Like many restaurants in Kiev, Prego serves plenty of sushi, pizza and pasta dishes.
The waiter took our order but didn't write it down and had to come back a few minutes later to check he had remembered it correctly.

He only brought one of the main courses out saying the second would follow in two minutes - it was actually 10 by which time my friend had almost finished otherwise the food would have gone cold.

Didn't leave a tip and definitely wouldn't recommend .

“Very disappointed...”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

I've been to this place many times because it's an ok outdoor place for a quick meal.
Today however they tried to cheat me in the cheapest way by returning change from 100 as I paid 200.Upon notifying, the waitress, she looks at me as if I left a turd on the table, leaves without a word and returns with the correct change, an embarrased look on her face and a barely audible 'sorry' as she runs away.
Needless to say, I didn't tip this time and don't plan to return although I live in Kiev.
Unfortunately this seems to be normal practice in Ukraine, fortunately there are a few places that seems to understand good service - places where I gladly return to, recommend and leave a big fat tip. :)

“A restaurant to return to”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I always eat at Prego when I’m in Kiev and have never been disappointed. The service is friendly and efficient. The prices are fair and the food tasty. I would recommend the amatrichana, which is well balanced and served very beautifully. The fact that this is an Italian/Japanese (!) restaurant surprises me, but it appears to be a common combination in Ukraine. The interior has a clean Italian style and there is nothing that resembles any sushi restaurant I’ve visited. Centrally placed in Kiev it is a good place for a newcomer to have lunch or dinner. One minus: the flat scream TV with music video and no sound is very disturbing and meaningless: so turn it off, please!
