We have frequented this restaurant over the last few years as we are regular visitors to Ogunquit. We have tried most of the various appetizers and main courses (including the pizza and sandwiches). We have never had a bad meal -- let me rephrase that. Every meal has been excellent. The service is top notch and the owner is very engaged in the day to day operations greeting guests and even serving tables. And for families with small children, this is a very family friendly restaurant. (At our last visit the owner sang Happy Birthday in Italian to a 1 year old.)

The gelato is first rate as good as any we have found including in Boston's North End.

This Cafe is a must visit when in the Ogunquit area.

Walked up to the beautifiul patio overlooking a charming street and was immediately seated up front on the open patio with heaters for the chilly night. We ordered the antipasto and wine which was a perfect sample of meats and marinated veggies. Then came the quattro fromage and mushroom pizza cooked extra crispy just like we ordered. Perfect and extremely friendly staff.

We stopped for a quick bite before heading home. The waiter was ok, we asked for one piece of bread three times and never saw it. The portion was small for the price, tourist trap.There were two men/owners one was acting obnoxous greeting his friends and pretty much ignoring the other guests. He passed our table a few times and never asked if everything was ok. We travel to Ogunquit at least once a week all year round. We are planning to purchase a home in Ogunquit and Cafe Prego will not be patronized by us or our families.

Although other customers have written reviews about the manager of this cafe, we had a delicious lunch at Cafe Prego. The paninis were very good and the waitstaff was fast and attentive.

Its taking me this long to input my two cents worth. Having dined here a number of times during the summer months for lunch and dinner, service has always been tops, the staff seems to remember you from week to week so that can help if you frequent the place. The price of the food is very reasonable considering its a huge tourist area and in the heart of the village. They are known for their gourmet pizzas but do have many other items on the menu. The place is casual, fun with an up-beat atmosphere
