Favourite restaurant in Auckland! It has been around for about 30 years and has been consistent in it's food, service, ambience, wine and popularity. It's great to go to with kids, early in the evening, or for dinner as a couple, or a 'work lunch' that ends up being an all day affair! Especially in Summer. It's located in the... More

Good place that does food well. Nice to sit outside for lunch and is kid-friendly around 6/7pm. Staff are friendly. Reccomend the pizza and if your there during the winter season the prego pie.

My husband and I decided to give this restaurant a go on our honeymoon here, after hearing so many good things about it. I think we had high expectations because of that, so I was excepting to be "wowed". I wasn't wowed, but it was a lovely a meal with great flavors. Our server wasn't the quickest, but he gave...

we went on a Sat night and they were very busy. Yes we had to wait for our meal, but it was worth the wait. Fantastic. 6 people at the table & everyone loved their dish. There was a good selection of wines at a reasonable price.

Loved sitting out in the courtyard. Lovely food, basic Italian but simple and yummy. Perfect for a post marathon lunch. Service was great tho not as attentive as it could have been. It was busy though so this could be the reason..

We went to Prego on a Monday night after trawling unsuccessfully for a nice place to eat. Very little seems open in Auckland on a Monday! We didn't have a reservation, but were given a table quickly. Our waitress was great, though one niggle is that she didn't come back quickly enough to see if we needed more drinks. I... More

First time at Prego for my cousins birthday lunch. A table of 8 girls. Food was amazing and came out rather quickly considering how busy they were. Only downside was our waitress seemed a bit off her game, this was obvious by the fact she stood at the counter having her back rubbed by a male staff member, not a... More

Never fails. We've been living away from NZ for 10 years come home every year and always try to get a lunch in here. Despite being told there is so many new nice restaurants. The service is always spot on, they listen and they get it right. The person serving us heard we were escaping children and he said he'd... More
