I dine at Prato frequently, and always enjoy the creative, hand-crafted cuisine. It’s especially nice to be able to order small portions of some of the entrées. Desserts are never too large, or too sweet. Service can be spotty, and it can be extremely noisy, even when dining outside. Fun, energetic atmosphere. Recommend reservations for most evenings.

We normally go to Prato for a nice dinner but today we stopped d by for a casual lunch (Pizza and Prosecco) and it was such a relaxing experience. The weather was fantastic so we sat by the open windows/doors and it provided a great people watching opportunity as The Christmas shoppers moved up and down Park Avenue.

I absolutely love Italian food and Prato did not disappoint. Started off with the Fiorentina pizza and it was excellent, perfect crust. Main dish was the black pepper papparedelle and it was very good, many different layers of flavor. Would definitely recommend both dishes. Service was also excellent. Was a little noisy which is understandable when going to a popular place like Prato. Have to stop and eat here if you are on Park Avenue.

Dinner was appetizers and pizza - all great. For this evening, service needs to be mentioned; it was exceptional. Our server made great recommendations, knew the menu expertly and always was there when needed. Service at Prato seems to always be good but tonight it was stellar.

Prato always delivers a 5-star experience.

Their black pepper pasta is a must try.

Pizza is always a smash hit.

The fields salad had way way way to much vinegar. The server could have cared less about our table as she liked the people next to us more. Main courses we're amazing and very well prepared. It was our anniversary so I asked to sit away from the bar, but we were sat next to the bar anyways. Overall good experience. Not the best but we go here every year for our anniversary and will continue to do so.

I've seen this place on TV a lot and it was highly recommended by colleagues when I was a concierge. I lived in Chicago for 6 years and spend a lot of time in NYC for work. This place was on par with the best that those cities have to offer and is hands down one of the best places in Central Florida. The pasta dishes were the best we've ever had and the pizza was top five for sure. Our wine was okay on its own but came alive when paired with our meals.

The ambience is great. It is modern/trendy and elegant without it trying to be anything it's not. Service was on point. I'd highly recommend.

I enjoyed the ambiance of the surroundings. The wooden structure made me feel cozy. Sitting indoors was nice and walking to the bathroom makes you feel like you're walking into the kitchen which is pretty cool. The food was delicious but portion size is small. I think that's how it should be. $34 for two bowls of pasta but its Park Ave and the surroundings were nice. You pay for the environment and quality of the food. I would definitely go again.

Absolutely delicious!!! Loved the mix of flavors in our food. The handcrafted cocktails were amazing. Too loud for my taste, but that’s not their fault. Had a great waiter who gave us excellent suggestions, as it was our first time at Prato. Will definitely return and take friends.

When we arrived we were seated instantly and had our waters within a minute. The bread with dipping oil came next and our entrees shortly after. The mustard pasta dish I got was amazing and so was her steak dish. Excellent wine selection. We'll be back for some of that amazing authentic pizza.

Prato always has amazing food!! Service was pretty good. I raved to my friends about the meatballs and when we went to order we were told they were out. I feel this should be told when greeted by the server. Also, the specialty drinks are way too expensive to be a short glass filled with ice. Over all, I go to Prato for the food and ambience .

Food was good and delicious but seemed like it was missing something on the plate? Not sure what but plating is always good for making a meal.......looked just okay. Taste though was spot on. Brittany was a very good host however I wish she asked us if we'd like dessert ? I boxed 1/2 my lunch and would have loved to have shared a dessert. Overall great and of course I will be back Brittany kept our water refilled was super friendly and I will ask for her agian.
with much sincerity, thank you. Deb G.

Prato is a favorite for my wife and I and we looked forward to our visit but things were a bit off this night. We appreciated their honoring our request for a booth on a very busy night where they could have given it to a party of four. The ambiance was very lively (loud) but as expected. Stephen provided very good service except for a fairly lengthy time to get our drink orders. We understand Prato is an Italian restaurant but at least a few popular California wine selections would be nice. My wife and I shared the Escarole Caesar salad that was poor due to the dressing having been drenched with lemon juice. I did like my choice of the flatiron steak but my wife did not like the ravioli. Prato will stay in our rotation but we plan to "give it a rest" for awhile.

Food was good, but the quality has gone down since they opened. Their dishes used to feel more inspired and unique, but now they seem more ordinary and mass appealing. The red snapper cheek was delicious and I love their Caeser salad, but everything else was just 'ok.'. Our server seemed disinterested in our table which was weird because it was at least a $200 ticket, so that also effected our experience.
