Prego (3)

Aug 18, 2012 Restaurants

Prego " src="" alt="Metro Audi Restaurant of the Year 2012 - Prego" width="640" height="457" />226 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby. Ph 376-3095.

Lunch & dinner 7 days.


Prego is the heart of Ponsonby: smart, busy, highly accomplished in both food and service, and so entertaining — at Prego, customers and staff alike strut their stuff and enjoy each other doing so. Best of all, it’s brilliantly inclusive. Business lunchers keep going back to Prego. Ladies who lunch, lunch at Prego. Parents bring in young kids to eat an early-evening pizza, dinner groups kick back and enjoy themselves after that, and the bar will accommodate you even later again. The menu’s Italian standards are immensely reliable, the specials are always worth checking, and whether you sit in the bustling interior, the lovely shady courtyard or a private room upstairs, you can rely on the staff looking after you, and feeding you, extremely well.

A favourite dish: Spaghetti agioli (with garlic, olive oil, olives, parsley, chilli and feta).

Latest issue shadow

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
