Diner Reviews
  • "This is a definite Winter Park gem! The food is always outstanding, which means it is always packed! Sometimes it is tough to make a reservation, but the food is worth it. We've never ordered something we didn't absolutely LOVE!"

  • "Great place great food upbeat atmosphere. Came up from Fort Lauderdale to meet family on vacation. Food is always great, our server was a great guy helpful and personable. On the other hand the host has some tude and not accomadating. Left a sour taste in my mouth."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food and service are out of this world, but they play music so loudly that you can't talk to the person across the table from you (on top of the already echo-y nature of the restaurant itself. The perfect way to dine at Prato is outdoors...it is much quieter there"

  • "From food to service and overall experience, Prato has it all! Thank you Jessica for the wonderful service and guiding us through the whole process. You are a gem! Will most certainly return."

  • "Took my family here and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. My daughter, just back from Italy, proclaimed her pizza Margharita totally authentic. The tagliatelle with meyer lemon and clams was to die for (and I love that they serve half portions of pasta!), while sauteeed broccoli rabe was perfectly executed. The fried calamari was good, but frankly, would have been better with a regular batter instead of the pretzel crust, which holds onto too much oil. May be time to rethink that dish. The delicious salad of shaved spring vegetables included charcoal grilled artichokes, a great idea, but they could have used a bit more grill time. House fresh lemonade was excellent, with just the right balance of tart and sweet."

  • "Prato has a great location, midway down fashionable Park Ave. in Winter Park. It is definitely a hot spot, offering a large bar, close to the fully opened doorway to the Park Ave. sidewalk scene and several tables outside offering al fresco dining. Their pizzas are made to order in their pizza oven and are delicious! My girlfriend and I shared a pizza and a house salad...the bill was only $20 + tip. What a great way to indulge in a lovely lunch on the avenue without breaking the bank."

  • "Dined at Prato for business lunch and it was great. It can get a bit noisy. Fresh menu daily and wait or was very thorough in explanation and provided great service."

  • "Food portion size was right. Prices are a good fit. Appetizers a little expensive. Over all very satisfied."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Second time dining and both times enjoyed the experience. Our table was reserved and the hostess seated us without hesitation, even 7-8 mins late due to street closures. Service excellent. Love the hot spot atmosphere and the vibrant bar scene, and with that, quite noisy. All our food dishes were very good from appetizer, Campagna salad, pizza, and ravioli. Good drinks. As with the first visit, and this visit, we found it hard to appreciate the simplicity and inspiration of this fresh food for the heavy salt on ALL dishes. Hopefully, on a future visit, we'll remember to ask our waiter to hold sprinkling the salt atop!"

  • "Eat at Prato often, usually at lunch. My wife loves the meat balls so we call in advance to be sure they are on the menu. We have had Jane as a server on many occasions and she is great. It seems to us that they often take the items we enjoy most off the menu. Their pasta can be the best ever but sometimes they get a little too ambitious and it comes off as a little too strange, at least for our taste. If not for Jane the front of the house operation would be extremely lacking for such an expensive lunch. Usually about $60 for the two of us without drinks or tip. I don't mind paying for quality food and will overlook other shortcomings as long as the food is up to its price."

  • "menu a bit different, hard to interpret, but food was excellent"

  • "Great experience. The cucumber/basil martini is outstanding. Can't think of anything to complain about with this restaurant. Great all around."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was amazing and probably the best ingredients for any Central Florida restaurant. I have already send two more couples there and they loved it as well."

  • "Great place to go on a beautiful day with beautiful people and great food."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Beautiful design, inside and out. Attention to every detail. Exquisite food, perfectly balanced cocktails. Accommodating to vegetarian needs. Friendly, prompt service. A little too loud for a conversation at the 7 o'clock service inside, but only due to it being VERY busy."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I go to Prato at least every couple of weeks, and it's always an enjoyable time. Ask for Torey, he'll guide you on your quest to pair the perfect food with your perfect wine, or vice versa."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We ordered three courses: the Ravioli was so thin and small you couldn't find the filling. The Braised pork was fatty, thin and bone in--the cheapest cut of pork and $28. When we were finished picking through it, our plate was half full of the residue. Wine list was all unheard-of Italian wines."

  • "Excellent food, ambience, server; everyone friendly and accomodating"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "A small town feel and square where the restaurant was located, and the unique setup of the dining room, and the famous picture of the pigs symbolizing the restaurants artistic design. Along the right wall near to the booth where my friend and I sat was a symbolic sign of a classical bistro a large chalk board showing the specials of the day from food to drink, and classic menu items. The server was very helpful going over the menu in full and elaborate details, showing pride and confidence in what he was selling to us, which to me shows great effort on the restaurants part to train their staff, and hire a group of professionals who are not only there to collect a paycheck, but to be excited about the food, and get the customer excited."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "This is a fantastic restaurant. The food was delicious. The restaurant has a great vibe and energy. This is a definite must-try-restaurant!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This place is so popular you must make a reservation if don't want to wait or not be seated at all. It's very loud inside, so not a place to go if you're trying to have a conversation with friends or a romantic dinner. Our server, Matthew, was outstanding! New the menu and was able to offer great recommendations."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Our second trip and it was great. For $16 you get an amazing and large gourmet pizza. The muscles were some of the best I've ever had. The cocktail menu was very interesting. The servers was very well-informed and could describe the menu items in great detail. The only better Orlando restaurants I've been to were way more pricey than Prato."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Awesome food and very friendly and helpful service. While my dining partner had been before, it was my first time and our server was very personable and gave us great suggestions. The ambiance adds to the overall great experience. Will definitely come back!"

  • "Relocated from Atlanta to the Central Florida area, and my better half and I are foodies. We have hit a few spots in the area and were not too impressed as compared to what we were accustomed to in ATL, but that changed when we visited Prato. The locale and atmosphere was great - the food was really tasty and fresh, and the service was great. We will definitely visit again. The one critique I have is that there is a lively bar scene, and groups/hanger-on-ers tend to gravitate around the bar area which is located near to a bunch of two seaters spread in the dining area. We had gotten our share of bumps and close encounters with folks hovering over our table front-wise and with their backs to us, which was not the best."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I really hate to give a restaurant a less than stellar review based on its customers, but I will never return. The food was just ok. We got the mussels and a pizza. The sauce on the mussels tasted like just butter. And the pizza was ok, nothing special. The tables are way to close to the bar and people are running into your table. And when people aren't running into it, they are basically standing right up next to it. 3 guys were mere inches from our table all throughout dinner. Ugh...the bar was completely packed with middle-aged Botox injected Winter Park people. I saw more face lifts and altered hairlines in one spot than I've seen my whole life. Bad atmosphere and mediocre food."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Had a great time there with my girlfriend. Awesome night, great service. Definitely making this a regular place when I visit winter park. Food was amazing as well, recommend the meatballs for sure."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "While the venue was jammed on this particular night, and the service was fine, the noise level and crowded tables made the restaurant feel more like a sports bar than a fine dining establishment. This is definitely a spot for the 30's crowd to meet and mingle. Honestly, we were so distracted by the noise and the jostling and bumping, that it was difficult to focus on the food. We shared the Prato meatballs (overwhelmed with garlic), a Margherita pizza (okay as pizzas go), and the short rib ragu (again overwhelmed with garlic). Overall, not impressed with the food and we wouldn't go out of our way to eat there again."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Everything from the food to the service was just perfect! We never had to ask our server for a thing! I suggest trying the mustard spaghettini and the fiorentina pizza. They were awesome!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Hands down my favorite restaurant in orlando! Service is always friendly and knowledgable! We tried the crispy pork belly over polenta at the servers recommendation and it did not dissapoint! We also tried the Arancini, which had to be one of my favorite items I've ever had there! The food is always amazing, if you have not been, listen to your servers recommendations... They will not stear you wrong!!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "What a culinary experience. From start to finish, drinks to desert Prato made its play for goosebumps to be had with our palette. Must try: Prato Meatballs and the pizzas. Bravo! We will be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Prato has remained consistent on their food and service. We enjoy a new menu item each visit. The brick oven pizza's are the best in town! If you enjoy new ingredient combinations that create a tasteful experience, this is your place. We visited on Valentines Day. It was busy but the service remained exceptional. They even gave a rose to all the ladies as they were leaving. I received a call a couple days later to ensure they met my service expectations. Their commitment to creating a welcoming, delicious, and memorable dining experience is evident."

  • "I always love going to Prato. They always have a great wine list and perfectly cooked pasta. What else could one want!"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Chicken salad was awesome. I wasn't too fond of the pork sandwich as it was a bit fatty. We've been a few times before and have always ordered one of the pizzas and salad, and I recommend them more than the sandwiches."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Prato is a great find for foodies. Everything on the menu is locally grown in Florida, and is fresh as of that morning. Everyone on the wait staff is knowledgable of the menu, and very personable to boot."

  • "Always wonderful! We love coming to Prato. They called to follow up on how our meal was. Now that's great service."

  • "I love Prato for GREAT pizza that can be split for a cheap date night. We have also found a soft spot for the meatballs that are literally the best I've ever had."
