This quaint, long time Italian restaurant has been a favorite of ours for 15-20 years. Never disappointing, always consistent in both food quality and service. Won't disappoint!

Food was good but our waiter wasn't interested in waiting on us. We had to ask other waiters for assistance. We were here for dinner midweek, it was crowded but not overly so. We would return, this was our first time here.

Went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Not real busy. The service and food is wonderful. The best Italian I have had in Texas. Will definitely go back again. Homemade pasta is excellent. Do not miss the strawberry shortcake.

I was in Houston for a conference near Rice University. We looked for a restaurant close by and found Prego. It was great. Lasagna was as good as any I have had. Highly recommend this place. Will go back if ever in Houston. Great service...More
