Prego Ristorante - Irvine

Adding a splash of Mediterranean color to California, Prego's ambiance blends the warmth and rustic charm of old-world Italy with the electricity and vibrancy of a cosmopolitan restaurant. Lively exhibition kitchens allow diners to view the artful chefs creating delicious dishes. Our restaurant seats up to 250 guests with al fresco. Prego features a full bar and offers banquet and catering services. The menu at Prego emphasizes regional Italian cuisine, featuring authentic pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, freshly made pastas, grilled fresh fish, spit-roasted meats and fowl, and an extensive list of wines from Italy and California that will please even the most discriminating wine connoisseur. Our homemade desserts and pastries make a perfect ending to an unforgettable dining experience. Prego has received fine-dining awards from the Restaurant Writers' Association and the Wine and Food Society of Southern California. It has been a culinary destination for over two decades.

"Been awhile since I had been to Prego. The dish I ordered just didn't seem as good as a few years ago---or course, maybe time has made the memory grow fonder? Overall, still one of my favorite Italian restaurants, I'm just not in the area much anymore."

"We used to eat frequently at Prego. The food, especially the roasted rabbit, and ambience is excellent.
My recent visit reminded why we stopped going. We were greeted by a very sour female hostess. She had a sour look when she greater us and an equally sour greeting. She made us feel like we were peasants requesting the charity of her household I am sorry if she felt our presence was inconvenient.
The waiter was inattentive and slow. He hardly came to the table unless vigorously flagged down multiple times. We had to ask several times for simple things like water and the bill.
My rabbit was good, but my guests' meals were average. My wife left angry and disgusted. I did not pay several hundreds of dollars to leave with an irritated wife.
Sadly, we will only return when our memories fail us again.
It's too bad. Everything is there for a top restaurant, except for the critical personal uniquely Italian hospitality.

"We were looking for good food, good service, and a good atmosphere. We found all three are at Prego Ristorante in Irvine. The food and service was outstanding. It was a busy Friday night with great energy in the building. The staff and customers were pleasant and friendly. Can't wait to go back."

"Have seen this restaurant for years and never tried until recently. OMG! Clearly the people who give this restaurant a positive review do NOT know good Italian food! WAY over-priced! Makes me wonder if they actually take the Prego jar spaghetti sauce and use this for their entrees! There is another VERY authentic Italian restaurant not far from here -- look for it -- don't waste your time and money!"

"I only went because a new article detailed new owners, and a new appreciation for customer/diners, nothing could be further from the truth. I could have gone to Il Fornios for same price and a MUCH better dining experience. Oh, and they're right up the road."

"Food was amazing! We went on New Year's Eve. They had a lovely holiday menu. My husband had the rabbit it was phenomenal and I had a pasta dish with shrimp. The pasta was so good. It was so fresh made in house. Service was wonderful. Our reservation was at 7:15 and we were sat right away."

"Food is very good and the ambiance is really romantic. Waiters could be more elegant with the way they present your food to you on the table. They tend to toss it instead of placing it :) other thank that it was a very good experience and we went there twice on our two week Holliday in the area."

"We celebrated NYE at Prego. We had not dined there before and were concerned with our first visit being on a special occasion, but we were not disappointed! The table we were seated at was comfortable and not packed next to other guests, the service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. Thank you Prego for exceeding our expectations. You did not disappoint and we will be back!"
