“Favorite Place to Eat”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I absolutely love this place. Great location. Beautiful landscaping and the food is fantastic. Being italian i am a snob when it comes to pizza. This is so worth the stop in. Also a great late night stop for espresso and gelato. Multo Graci Cafe Preggo

Thank you for your recent visit, and for taking the time to write a wonderful review on Trip Advisor. We take great pride in gardens that surround the Caffe, and are appreciative that you mentioned them in your review. This past year, as we acquired the property next door, we were able to not only expand the patio, but completely replant the gardens on that side of the Caffe. This new addition to the patio, overlooking these gardens, now arguably provides the nicest view on Shore Road. Of course, the vistas would be empty if you couldn’t enjoy the wonderful food and cappuccino we serve. We value your support and hope to see you again soon.

“My favorite”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Caffe'Prego is just a wonderful place to be while in a "beautiful place by the sea". Just a bit of Italy and a great spot. The employees are great as is the service. They all seem to love working there. We have met the owner around the time they first opened and I can see why. He was a fun guy who spoke a bit of Italian which certainly added to the ambience. He has now opened a fine dining restaurant next door (Five-O) and an inn (The Inn on Shore Rd.) on the other side. I hope to visit those places soon. I'm sure they will be a nice experience. We always go to Caffe' Prego when in Ogunquit. The food has been great always.

“A piece of Italy in Ogunquit”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Amazing Pizza's, lasagna and gelatos! Gelatos are also made on the premises and really do remind me of Italy. Friendly staff who provided great service with a smile.

“You must try the gelato!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stopped by Cafe Prego for some gelato on our recent stay in Ogunquit and was amazed by the number of wonderful flavors offered - 25! It was the best gelato I've ever had - i really thought I was in Italy! Service was great too. Definitely worth the stop.

Thank you for your glowing praise of our house-made gelato. One of our owners actually studied at Gelato University, located in Bologna, Italy, in an effort to bring authentic Italian gelato to Ogunquit. We are constantly experimenting with new flavors and ingredients, so that the next time you come to the Caffe you will be able to try a whole new taste experience. We hope to see you soon.

“terrific dining !”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I went to Caffe Prego on Saturday night without a reservation. The restaurant was packed and luckily for me, a party had not shown up so we were able to be seated right away. The salad of the day was really good - very fresh, very tasty. I went with an old standby - chicken parm. It was fantastic. First, it was piping hot which is always a plus. The plum tomato sauce is so good, i actually would love the recipe. Our waiter as well as all of the staff were very attentive. They do not have a full bar but if yiu are a sangia fan, they make a dee-licious red sangria. Next visit I will certainly give the brick oven pizza a try, it looked like perfection!

We are so happy to hear you were able to join us on a busy Saturday night, and without a wait to boot (an added bonus). While we always regret having a wait on a busy night, the long lines are an indication that Caffe Prego has developed a loyal and devoted following. Although we don't have the complete bar options (like Five-O next door) we are able to make many common cocktails and the sangria you enjoyed is made from a recipe developed in house. We do recommend trying the pizza -my personal favorite- it is definitely worth a return visit.
