    We go regulary to Prato and we love this place. This week I must say it was not as good as usual. The special salad I had as a starter (Pear something) was too spicy and not well combined. Last month they had the watermelon special salad and that was the burner. This pear thing is just not good. My 2nd course was pasta and it was greasy - I never had a greasy pasta at Prato. Beside that the service was not as engaged as normal. Think just selected a not perfect day for everything

    The food was amazing. Vibrant and fresh flavors. Strongly recommend the veal. Good wine lust. We ordered an appetizer and asked the server to come back for wine and meal order. 15 minutes later the appetizer arrived and no sign yet of the server. He finally showed up to take our wine and meal order. Service continued down hill from there. But food was amazing and we had no issues rating the service by the tip. Plan to try again.

    My friend took me to Prato for my birthday. Everyone made me feel special and the food was fantastic. Our waiter, Grey, was outstanding. He explained all foods clearly and made us want to eat a little of everything. He made sure all our needs were met. He is a definite asset to Prato. Loved the atmosphere. I will definitely will be back!

    This was my first visit to Prato and I went for lunch with my 2 daughters. We started off with the crostini and meatballs. The crostini was on delicious, crusty and chewy bread and the meatballs were flavorful. We each tried something different for our lunch. The Margherita pizza had a spicy tomato sauce with fresh basil leaves and a delicious chewy and flavorful crust. The roasted pork Italiano sandwich was big with lots of meat and grilled onions and the truffle fries were to die for! The homemade egg bucatini Amatriciana was outstanding! The pasta was perfectly al dente with a delicious tomato sauce and pancetta. The portions were big so we brought home a little of everything and it was all delicious the next day!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Winter Park. Unfortunately, even though we requested a booth, they put us in a high top table which are very uncomfortable and no hooks underneath for women to hang their purse. We always order the meatballs and mustard speghetini, they are usually awesome. However, tonight, the meatballs were undercooked and the speghetini was salty and very dry. Since it rained, the bar got packed and we had people bumping into us and standing within a foot of our table....it was very claustrophobic.....Do not sit at the high tops. Like I said, probably just a bad night. We'll definitely come back, just never on a Friday.

    Prato has been a nice weeknight getaway spot for us. We like to bring close friends here for dinner and drinks. The menu never disappoints. The staff is friendly. At times, when all you feel like is appetizers and dessert in a comfortable setting - this is the place. Make reservations - especially on the weekend. If you want something different, try the widowmaker pizza.

    My boyfriend and I had a delicious dinner here. Pricey but worth every penny especially as you watch the kitchen labor over your food, everything is made in the smallest batches with great care. Only downside: service. It was atrocious. We tried not to let it mar the total experience though.

    We love Prato. We've been here several times and will continue to go. The food is excellent. I had the Egg Buccatinni and the Widowmaker pizza. Both excellent as always. What wasn't great was the service. It took 8-10 mins after being seated to get our drink order taken and then probably 20 mins after we ordered for our appetizers to come. When they came the waiter blamed it on the kitchen and said, "it's about time your damn food came". Very odd. My pizza came about 5 mins prior to my wife's food coming which they had warned us may happen but was still a little awkward. Also, forgot to bring a condiment we requested. This is nitpicky stuff and I would much rather have good food and bad service than bad food and good service. But still...

    Just recently went to Prato for our two year anniversary, it was our first time and it was an amazing experience. The ambiance was perfect and our server Joe was excellent. Joe was extremely attentive, gave wonderful recommendations on different foods to try, and was extremely knowledgeable of everything on the menu. The meatballs, watermelon salad, and shrimp ravioli are must haves at the restaurant. And because it was our anniversary, both Joe and the restaurant went out of their way to provide an exceptional experience, which exceeded all of my expectations. An amazing farm to table restaurant that is a must go for everyone.

    I absolutely love Prato. It is a great restaurant with an eclectic atmosphere and the menu is always changing. On this visit, the service started out fairly well for the first 30 min or so, but didn't last much longer after that. The waiter seemed disinterested in our table and neglected to wait on us regularly towards the end and it wasn't busy in the restaurant either. I'd say he needs some additional training on waiting on customers. Over all, the food and drinks were great, restrooms were clean. One con I did recognize was the bar/high table seating. I would recommend sitting either at a booth, or the regular height tables. The higher table seating don't have enough bars to rest your feet on, making your legs feel numb.

    Many forays into places with unusual menus end in disappointment for the moderately adventurous. This was an exception. We (4 of us) each ordered something different and shared it all. Each dish was a delight to all of us. The ravioli was a favorite. Also the meatballs. The only leftover was the veal sausage on the meat & cheese platter. Our server was very knowledgeable, and very patient with our many questions about the menu and the sources for foods. We will be returning.

    Prato is the best restaurant in Orlando. I wish I had two stomachs. It's evident in the fact that you need to make a reservation one week in advance. Food is outstanding and the service is perfect. I like to take my time at dinner. I order drinks, talk, get a few apps, more drinks then I'll order something for dinner. I go to some places and the server comes back to the table every 2 minutes to see if I'm ready to order until finally I order just so the serve stops asking. Every time I go I discover something new on the menu that I think about for the next week. Can't wait to go back.
