“Excellent service, authentic Italian”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

It almost felt as though I were returning to a favorite restaurant where I was warmly remembered and welcomed. The wine selections are excellent, a diverse and delicious authentic Italian menu. Attentive and friendly service.

“Big Texas Italian hospitality”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We only get to Houston a couple of times a year, but Prego has become our go-to place for an excellent meal. I like places which don't have a freezer or can opener in the kitchen, and I suspect Prego qualifies. There's a lot of mediocre Italian food out there - but not here. Soups, salads and entrees are interesting, tasty and attractively presented. Get brave and try something new; you'll be rewarded.

“Reliable good upscale Rice Village restaurant”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Prego is a great and dependable restaurant with a quality menu at reasonable prices. I have been many times and never been disappointed. The cuisine is of an Italian bent, and the seafood dishes are excellent. A great place for dates and business dinners.

“Very good food and excellent service”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Nice menu selections, especially for lunch. Mozzarella is very good. Servings are reasonable - not crazy-huge like some Italian restaurants. Would be happy to go back again.

“Wonderful food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

I've been to Prego twice & will go again. The pumpkin seed crusted snapper is excellent. The shrimp scampi with crab meat was wonderful.
My family liked the salmon with gnocchi. We didn't try the meat dishes yet. Salads were great. A bit pricey but the seafood dishes were worth the money. I could eat there every day with the variety on the menu. Excellent wine selection too. We were eating too early to drink much.
