We only get to Houston a couple of times a year, but Prego has become our go-to place for an excellent meal. I like places which don't have a freezer or can opener in the kitchen, and I suspect Prego qualifies. There's a lot of mediocre Italian food out there - but not here. Soups, salads and entrees are interesting, tasty and attractively presented. Get brave and try something new; you'll be rewarded.

Prego is a great and dependable restaurant with a quality menu at reasonable prices. I have been many times and never been disappointed. The cuisine is of an Italian bent, and the seafood dishes are excellent. A great place for dates and business dinners.

Nice menu selections, especially for lunch. Mozzarella is very good. Servings are reasonable - not crazy-huge like some Italian restaurants. Would be happy to go back again.

I've been to Prego twice & will go again. The pumpkin seed crusted snapper is excellent. The shrimp scampi with crab meat was wonderful.
My family liked the salmon with gnocchi. We didn't try the meat dishes yet. Salads were great. A bit pricey but the seafood dishes were worth the money. I could eat there every day with the variety on the menu. Excellent wine selection too. We were eating too early to drink much.

Love Prego! Had the tuna salad with pickled eggs. Great lunch entree. My wife had pasta carbonara which was rich and creamy. Nice and quiet for lunch.
