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.
