Thank you for your recent visit to Caffe Prego and your vote of confidence by giving us a great review on Trip Advisor. We are pleased to hear that, at the owner’s suggestion, you decided to try the meat lasagna, one of the many additional entrees on the menu. Of course, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed it as much as the pizza. Over the years, the owners have taken several hundred trips to Italy to be sure that everything in the caffe is authentic as possible; this includes perfecting our pizza recipes. We are thrilled to hear that you will return, and we look forward to your next visit.

“Nice meal and good time!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The food was very good as we had the chicken parm and a pizza which was a nice break from all of the seafood we had been enjoying. The place was very busy on a nice August night so we knew our server was busy but he did a good job. The gelato was excellent. The prices are very reasonable. We will return here the next time we are in Ogunquit.

“Old Reliable”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Lets face it. Traveling with little ones can be a dinner time challenge. And not knowing how they can act adds an unneeded stress to your otherwise delightful evening. So if you are looking for an open air, highly entertaining because of the traffic and people watching, spot, with consistently good food, check this place out. We go once or twice a trip. They definitely need to figure out what good beer is, but that can be said for all of Ogunquit really. So sit outside, watch the traffic and if you are lucky you may even see a little jazz trio,that shows up on the patio in the summer! Plenty to keep little minds occupied for an hour or so!

Thank you for your visit, and for taking the time to write a great review on Trip Advisor. As a father of a three-year-old, I know EXACTLY what you are talking about in terms of the challenges of dining out with small children. We always do are best to make sure "the kids" are happy at Caffe Prego-happy kids make happy parents. We have a lot to offer children at the Caffe: Pastas dishes with choices of toppings and sauces, excellent pizza, games while they wait, and of course, our house made gelato. We have a lot to offer parents too- and while wish we could have a bigger beer selection, the small size of the caffe limits our collection. We try to cover some bases: The most popular beer from Italy (of course), the most popular light beer, a good local microbrew, and a Canadian beer for our many wonderful guests from the north. We love your many visits, and we hope you keep returning again and again.

“Great dinner in Ogunquit”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had a really nice evening and very good dinner at Caffe Prego. The food was very good, and the service was fantastic! Our waiter, Marlon McLean, was extremely friendly, caring and efficient. He made this evening a really special one.
I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.
One thing to know, waiting for a table can be quite long during peak season, but the staff is attentionate, and it is worth it.

Thank you for your brief but positive review on Trip Advisor. We do often have wait times for tables in the peak hours of the summer season, but, as many guests will attest, the experience is well worth the wait. We are always so pleased to hear that a member of the staff impressed one of our guests. We place much emphasis in creating a wonderful experience that goes well beyond serving great meals. We hope you can join us again on your next visit to Maine.

Thank you for your recent visit and your mostly great review on Trip Advisor. Each year, as Caffe Prego has grown from a little Italian caffe serving gelato and coffee to a full-service restaurant, we have also increased the level of service and professionalism of our staff. We apologize if you felt that the staff was "unenthusiastic"; countless reviews praising our staff over the years will attest to both their friendliness and professionalism. We value your patronage and your feedback, and we hope you can visit us again soon.
