Prego restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Prego on Ponsonby Road is a contemporary Italian restaurant.

There are few restaurants in Auckland that have the sense of permanence Prego does, and its re-entry into the Top 50 in 2018 marks a welcome return to form for this Ponsonby stalwart. Sometimes the true value of a restaurant is not in the boundaries it pushes but simply in the way it treats people. Prego makes newcomers feel welcome and cared for, it makes kids feel special and it makes regulars feel fiercely loyal. The staff are genuinely charming and unflappable, conjuring extra chairs and cutlery when needed, recommending favourite dishes, and serving the familiar, quality Italian cuisine that appeals across generations because the flavour combinations are tried and true.

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!
