Success! Thanks for posting your review of Prego. You’ve done the world some good today.

Must Have the Veal Chop!

I love, love Prego's! I always get the Veal special, the mac and cheese is like grandma used to make and the sauteed crab fingers are excellent when they have them. I always sit at the bar for dinner because Kathy is awesome. No matter how busy she is she always makes me feel special. The sommelier (wish I could remember his name) is great. Tell him what you like and what you want t spend and he will find something y... view more

Try the daily specials.

I've been going to Prego for years on a regular basis. While not all of the food on the menu is excellent, I've found that in general, they are delicious and of solid and consistent quality. The daily specials are spectacular in some cases, like this lobster linguini dish they've been serving recently and the soft-shell crab. Although this is probably my favorite Italian restaruant (and I eat out almost every meal... view more

Hit-or-miss: funny-tasting seafood, cold doughy bread; great lamb, good dipping olive oil. Service

Went on a Sunday at lunchtime. Pretty empty. Service was excellent, but food was hit-or-miss. The bread they brought to the table was cold, and some of the bread seemed doughy and undercooked. The dipping oil was fantastic, lots of herb and garlic taste. My fiancee ordered the lamb; we both enjoyed it, although the potatoes that came with it were a little bland. I ordered the linguine pescatore with spicy red s... view more

Nice Italian Neighborhood Restaurant

Very good Italian food, much better that chains like Carrabba's and the like. The food is fresh and well-prepared, and the service is excellent. They have a good kid's menu, and a very nice wine list. It gets busy here, so definitely make a reservation if you want to eat during peak hours.

Great Brunch!

My Girlfriend and I tried this spot out a few months back. Their brunch is super yum + affordable. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara, and my Lady had the Rigatoni w/ shrimp. She hasn't been able to stop talking about the Carbonara ever since. Good Stuff!

Best restaurant in Rice Village

The first 6 pages of the menu are filled with wines, and it's not until you reach the last 2 pages do you actually see the food. Unfortunately, my friend and I are not big fans of wine though if we were I'm sure it would have complemented our meal very well. The food selection was great, and I really enjoyed my salmon and my friend's veal entrees. The portions are huge, and the food was well-cooked and well-season... view more

A Treasure Close to Home

I live 2 miles from Rice Village and always forget about this place when I'm craving Italian. My sister and I recently stopped in for dinner. I started with a petite Caesar, which was fresh and flavorable and not saturated with dressing. I then ordered the pumpkin and shrimp risotto with pancetta, and she had the primavera risotto with corn and asparagus among other veggies. Both dishes were heavenly. I would love to... view more

This restaurant does it RIGHT.

My god I love this place. I took my girlfriend here on our first date, and made reservations for a specific table, which, from insider info, is the best seat in the house! (Table 24) :-)\r \r The wait staff was friendly, attentive, and informative, the menu and wine list were well rounded, and the clean atmosphere and quirky circus photography decor makes for a great date night. \r \r I ordered the pork chops, wh... view more

Amazing Food

Living in Sugar Land, I quickly grow tired of the chain/corporate restaurants and mediocre attempts at original and unique dining. Prego is a wonderful escape from mass-market monotony. The atmosphere is comfortable and laid-back and the service was very polite and efficient. The menu offers more than traditional Italian fare, most of the items very unique and specific. We started off with the spicy crab fingers,... view more
