My partner and I had a lovely dinner at Prego. Unfortunately you can’t book a table but we were only waiting for around 15 minutes on a busy Saturday evening. The staff were all super friendly and helpful and there is a lovely atmosphere both...More

Our first visit was so good, we had to go back. Auckland has a wide selection of great restaurants, but Prego is a gem. On this visit to Auckland it was school holidays at home, so the family came. We thought we'd try Prego and...More

Have not been to Prego for several years but that will change. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and our waitress charming. Great menu and wine list (Blackenbrook Pinot Gris) I highly recommend. The wine and food arrived in very good time. There is indoor...More
