Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Great pasta, pizza, all with intersting twists. Flavorful. Impresses my foodie/excellent chef spouse every time. Meatballs are flavor explosions. If you haven't been you have to try it."

  • "This was only my second visit to Prato in Winter Park and it was just as good as the first time. The food was delicious (even though it did take a little while to prepare) and the atmosphere was fun and lively. I look forward to visiting again in the near future."

  • "It was really a night to remember. The place is amazing - a great ambience, really tasty food, an inviting wine list, beautiful people and a great service. It's charming and cozy, though a bit loud because all of the buzz around it. A great place to go with your partner or friends. But since it's so good, you must book in advance - I did it some weeks earlier."

  • "Our meal was great from beginning to end: the menu is constantly changing to reflect the fresh ingredients of the season, and Prato knows how to make those flavors shine!"

  • "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."

  • "This was our second time visiting Prato and it won't be our last. We visit Florida about once a year and we specifically plan to dine at Prato while we're in town. In fact, I made my reservation on OpenTable about 6 months in advance to make sure we'd have a seat! The food is always amazing and we love the ambiance. The service is great. The wait staff is helpful and friendly. We always get the Widowmaker pizza. We will definitely be coming back."

  • "This restaurant was recommended so we decided to try it. The staff did everything they could to make it an enjoyable experience. They even sent a dessert to the table after learning it was our first visit. The signature meatballs were good. The beet and heirloom tomato salads even better. The pizza tasty although the garlic spice was a little strong in spots. The pasta dish, with feta and parmesan cheese was excellent. The tiramisu excellent. The portions were on the smaller but adequate size. You might ask, would we go back? Yes we would but would be careful in our selections."

  • "I can't say enough good things about Prato. Service, ambiance, drinks, and food were all outstanding. From our first drink at the bar prior to our table opening up to out last bite of desert with a delicious glass of port, the experience was top-of-the-line and my date was blown away, as well. Even on a busy Friday night we didn't feel rushed at all and our server made us feel like we had his total attention. I will be returning soon and often and recommend this place very highly. "

  • "Went their for our 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner and we had a good time and a good dinner. The meatballs appetizers were great. However since all food is freshly made need to go earlier, they were out of some items that a friend recommended. We had a bottle of Lambrusco sparkling red wine and it was perfect for our dinner. The blackberry gelato with crushed almonds was very good."

  • "We stumbled across Prato on Mothers Day- visiting Winter Park for the morning whilst on Holiday. The restaurant itself is lovely and the bar area very inviting- I didn't have one but the cocktails looked amazing! My partner and I both had paninni's, which were served with the most delicious side salad. We enjoyed it so much we visited again for dinner the next Friday. We booked for 8pm but were 20 mins late (I4 problems) we had tried calling ahead several times but the number would not connect- probably due to my English phone. On arrival I explained - one hostess was most helpful and set about finding another table another openly talked about us whilst we were stood there. Not good. Food great though- pizza's especially! Will visit again. "

  • "The Meatball appetizer is excellent. The housemade pasta was superb. Go for the food! Service was good. The restaurant is nicely done but it is quite noisy as there is a large bar that covers about half the restaurant. I would highly recommend Prate based on the food alone and if you want a good bar scene then this is your place. "

  • "This is the first non-Asian restaurant that I can see myself eating at all the time. Every dish my table ordered was perfectly cooked and not overpowering. The service was great, even at the hostess level. I felt like the hostess went above and beyond to make sure my reservation was accommodating. This restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem and the best on the strip. Please stay consistent! "

  • "I went there with my girlfriend for Mother's day. The service was outstanding, excellent. From the hostess to the waiter they were great. For appetizer we had the Uni which was amazing. So we were excited for the entrees. We even ordered three them. We got the duck, a dish with lemon, and shrimp ravioli. We only got the ravioli because because the waiter recommended it. The ravioli is the only dish that was good. The duck dish was dry and uninspiring. The lemon dish was okay at best. I don't even remember what else is on it except that it was way too acidic. The ravioli was worth it. That was the dish I was expecting. Maybe my expectations were too high but I usually go with the Ravenous Pig and never disappointed."

  • "We went in mid-December 2013 for a birthday dinner. Not what I expected. Very noisy and busy. I know it was Christmastime but they sat us in the bar at a high top table and our feet did not reach the foot railing. Our feet dangled the entire time and it was uncomfortable. Asked to be sat at a regular table but they didn't have any available until It's May and I am not missing this restaurant. that evening. Food was good but the expectation was more than was delivered. Probably a better drinks and appetizer type place. "

  • "I would definitely call myself a foodie, so I love all food, but Prato in particular stands out among the rest. It now holds the title of my new favorite restaurant! Prato is gem. The food is fresh, great-quality and you can tell a lot of love and passion went into creating each dish. Be ready for each of your senses to be captivated as you indulge in their fine wines and delicacies. We had the beef carpaccio and pizza diavolo. It was so flavorful and so delicious! Our server was very attentive and nice. Thank you Prato for exceeding my expectations and delivering the best of service! We can't wait to go back :)"

  • "We enjoy Prato and we will continue to frequent this venue. However, our last dining experience was HOPEFULLY an off night for our service, the kitchen and management. To our surprise there wasn’t one apology for the LATE arrival of one of the two entrées. In fact, no one asked us how our meal was other than assuming it was good."

  • "We went to Prato on 05/03/14, ordered a bottle of wine and Polenta. They have a really good polenta but that night"OUT OF POLENTA" Well its not suppose to happen, I felt like I was at Dunkin Donuts "we are out of donuts" but not in a fancy $100 check restaurant. But still...they have a good food! "

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando and I've rated it very high on all occasions, but the waiter must have been new to the restaurant or not trained well, because he didn't know basic questions regarding the food. We were recommended the Filletto (filet mignon roasted) and it wasn't very good and was $35.00, might have been a bad cut of beef, but for Prato standards this dish didn't get the job done for us. This is still one of my favorite restaurants and the rest of the food was spot on, but sometimes you get a rookie waiter that doesn't give good recommendations and in our case, a bad dish. "
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Not as good as the previous visits. Might have been the waiter, didn't seem to know the items on the menu. One of the dishes, the filletto wasn't as good as anticipated. "
