we found the restaurant to be a little cramped and noisy. Our food arrived quickly and was very nice. there were tables outside, but being wet and cold we ate inside. If i had the oportunity to go again I would try to eat outside

"B" grade overpriced Italian food. I'm pretty sure their chef is not Italian otherwise Fettuccine Alfredo would not be that over-salted. Really surprised with such high rankings

We tried to go to Jervois Steak House restaurant, but it was closed. The taxi driver suggested Prego restaurant and left us there. What a pleasant surprise! Common place but excellent service and terrific food! Prices were medium. Great lunch!

Went to Prego for a late lunch/early dinner. Felt incredibly welcome the entire experience. Our waitress Cecilia was amazing, very attentive and.knowledgeable but also not overbearing. Fantastic food, the gnocchi was spectacular, as was the assortment of entrees we enjoyed as a table. Highly recommended.
