    When visiting our son for Family Weekend at UCF this past weekend we enjoyed a terrific meal with him and his housemates at Prato. While the rain prevented an evening repast outdoors under an umbrella, we enjoyed the energy inside the restaurant. While neither the menu nor the wine list are lengthy, diners at Prato will be surprised by the savory dishes and excellent service. We shared meatballs and a Margherita pizza as an appetizer; then, delicious veal scallopini, rigatoni bolognese, along with another Margherita pizza for dinner. We enjoyed the restaurant immensely. the entire staff from valet to hostesses and servers were attentive and well-trained.

    was really impressed with Prato for lunch on a Sunday. i have heard a friday or sat night can be busy. The menu is simple and fresh our party of four ordered the blue crab appetizer (crunch and heat) and a few other lunch plates all very impressive. Our waiter (steve) was probably one of the best i have had in recent memory very knowledgeable about the menu and always keeping table in mind. A very good Sunday lunch experience.

    If you can get past the snotty hostess who will act like a request for a table other than a high top by the bar is giving her a pain in the side (really? Isn't Front of House supposed to be the friendly face of a restaurant? The petite, brunette hostess wearing a green top on Saturday was definitely was not), food was delicious and service was spot on. Great food and good wine made it almost worth running the gauntlet of the less-than-affable hostess who met us at the start of the evening.

    Beet ravioli was not up to par, presentation was different than the first time we ordered it, very unappealing in bowl and very soupy, Taste was different too and not in a good way. Bitter aftertaste. Loved it the first time but would hesitate to order it again,

    The food was EXCELLENT and our server was on point...friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food came out quickly & hot... major plus. The only thing that left a bad taste, was the initial greeting, or lack-there-of. The hostess on duty did not greet us when we walked in the door, despite us being directly in front of her. She was not pleasant when she asked me to repeat myself twice regarding our reservation. She tried to seat us in a table right next to the bus station in spite of there being several other nearby tables open. When asked to sit elsewhere, we got a silent glare. She didn't seem like she wanted to be there. A smile would have nice. Overall great place but she needs to lighten up.

    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.

    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.

    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.
