Thank you very much for acknowledging the good food at Caffe Prego.

Our fresh ingredients and experienced staff of culinary experts are the reasons why many of the more than 600 guests we serve on a daily basis continue to return to experience the best of what Caffe Prego offers.

Thank you also for acknowledging the quality of our Gelato which is made on the premise, fresh each day.

Our servers, many of whom have been with us for the last five years, take great pride in ensuring that our customers are having the best experience possible.

We appreciate your support and look forward to having you return for your next Caffe Prego experience.

“Great food, great location, ready to return!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Our first trip and won't be out last! We were warmly greeted by the hostest and were asked if we prefered to sit inside or out when I responded in she checked for a table and then had us approve of it before seating us bc of the location of the table. We each had a sandwhich which were served with homemade pasta salad perfectly dressed. The best part was the owner who was working hard, greeting guests, seating guests and cleaning tables. Will deff be going back!

“Best host, great restaurant”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Have you ever been to a restaurant where not only is the food terrific but the host is a true maestro. My husband and I recently dined at Caffe Prego. We were impressed by the food and charmed by the decor. But what makes this place a standout is the owner himself. His name is Donato and we had a chance to speak to him on our first visit. This place is a labor of love for him and he will gladly share with you his knowledge and love of all things Italian, including the yummy gelato and other desserts and specially imported olive oil. He is frequently seen mingling among the dinner guests. With his warm personality and welcoming approach to all, he transforms the experience from simply a terrific meal into an elegant evening in an Italian cafe. A real treat is to be there for someone's birthday. When that happens, the owner himself arrives at the table and can be seen serenading the birthday guest with a rendition of Happy Birthday - in Italian. There are a lot of restaurants in Ogunquit. But none with great food, decor, service AND this special atmosphere, compliments of the charismatic owner of this place.

Thank you for your recent visit, and many thanks for your wonderful review on Trip Advisor. You are correct: Caffe Prego is truly a labor of love for the owners. Caffe Prego is the result of hundreds of trips to Italy over many years; all in an effort to bring an authentic Italian experience to our many guests in Ogunquit. We hope that you have the chance to return in the future so that we can provide you with a wonderful experience again soon.

“Another positive experience!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is my seventh season returning to beautiful Ogunquit and the Caffee Prego establishment. Just when I thought they had exeeded my expectation they have gone even furhter. I had the white pizza which was better than any other Italian restaurant ever. I went back the next night to try one of the pasta dishes which was a vegetable pesto pasta and it was delicious. The service, the food, and the setting is worth the wait where they add a nice touch by offering bread and olive oil while they prepare your table. Looking forward to next year!
