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).
