Pizza was great, pasta not so much. Service was exceptional but we were seated in the middle so our seats were constabtly bumbed by the staff on the night. Not an overly priced venue but unfortunately, the experience did not meet expectations.

Front of house crew are so friendly, helpful & knowledgeable it's a joy to let em go ! Excellent chuffing with great... More

Dined here on a busy Sunday night after a recommendation from a local. Staff were friendly and attentive, making wonderful suggestions for meal choices. My wife loved the mussels and the duck risotto was tasty and a generous portion. The tortellini we shared was well seasoned and obviuosly handmade with fresh ingredients. I believe this place has been around for... More

3 of us arrived and had a drink at the bar while waiting for a table. 10 minutes later we were seated and ordered mixed starters of antipasto and calamari. Delicious. A pasta and 2 risottos to share was perfect. The waitress helped us with the wines and mains, which made sure that we didn't miss their best. I'm coming... More

My family swear by this place. They are right to do so. The service is great, the food is good and so is the wine. Go.

The food and service is always excellent here....dining in the beautiful courtyard for a lovely sunny day lunch only marred by the number of tables for smokers. Everyone enjoyed their lunch.

The food is so so good... The service is great. Our waiter had a lot of humor. We had a nice bottle of rose wine (something with kiss in it). This was the second time we went there and both time's were perfect. If you are at ponsonby you have to go and eat there

Whoever runs the front of house at Prego deserves a medal. They don't take bookings, so when you arrive you give a name to the person with the book, and proceed to the bar to await your turn. The place was humming with activity, reflecting its reputation, so it wouldn't surprise if things got missed. But in our case they... More
