Every bite was delicious! The pizza crust, baked in a wood-burning brick oven, had a fabulous texture and flavor. The pasta was perfectly cooked al dente, with just enough sauce to flavor and not overwhelm the pasta. Again, the textures of the pasta with the crispy speck were perfectly balanced. The mussels were an especially nice and delicious surprise. The leek chowder at the bottom and the crispy potato pieces also achieved that great texture accompanied with a delicious savoriness. The meatballs were perfect, as well. Not drenched in sauce, and paired with mashed potatoes and crispy crumbs made this another delightful dish. Finally, the service was excellent. We ate this meal over four courses, had great recommendations, and never felt rushed.

Had dinner on weekend trip to WP. This is not your typical spaghetti / lasagna Italian restaurant. It has a truly special menu offering creative dishes tastefully prepared. My wife had a half order of the butternut squash ravioli - said it was one of the best she’d ever had. We shared the diavolo pizza - the waiter said it had a spicy kick, so we toned it down a little for our tastes; it turned out excellent, with a rich but not too spicy flavor. One of the best Italian meals we’ve had recently!

Brilliant menu, attentive wait staff. Our short legs meant we weren’t comfortable on the front tables and were gladly moved to somewhere more suitable. Meatballs are terrific, waiter explained the whole menu, excellent pizza. The butternut squash ravioli was a little short on butternut flavor and if I must be picky then if you’re going to write your menu in Italian then make sure the staff know how they are meant to be pronounced, else just write it in English. I’d welcome a chance to go back next time we’re in Orlando.

I love Prato! On this visit, the service wa a bit less perfect than usual, with my cocktail being prepared incorrectly. And, the Pasta didn’t seem as creative as what I’m used to from Prato. However, it was still wonderful and I’ll definitely be back

Prato is a favorite place and our "go-to" place in the Winter Park area. We love the fresh, delicious food, great selection of wines, excellent cocktails and excellent service. This time I took a friend to a birthday lunch and they treated her to a gelato with a candle. Thank you for that special touch. She just moved into the area, and I'm sure we'll be back there with our husbands!

Prato is our family’s favorite restaurant. We came here most recently after my four-year-old had a tough day at school (I know, I know, but it happens). Theresa is almost always our server, and she was so wonderful, as usual. She brought my son a cucumber flower to eat while we waited for our order to arrive, and her kindness just helped make the whole day better. The egg rigatoni with fatta su bolognese is delicious as always, but it was so much more than just a meal: our time at Prato was a balm for some really stressed out people, and we left feeling relaxed and refreshed. Thank you!

I have been many times to Prato but this last time has got to be the best yet. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful from start to finish. Offering food and wine suggestions all with an up beat warm and friendly attitude and although the night was busy, he made sure that did not affect the quality of service provided.

The food at Prato is always delicious. We started with the cheese and meat app that was perfect for sharing for for ladies. We then moved onto the always fantastic Diavolo flatbread (Pepperoni, Pancetta, Italian Long Pepper, Auricchio Piccante), Polenta Cake (Brussels, Sunchoke Fritto, Chili Honey), Campagna (Arugula, Radicchio, Pancetta Tesa, Rosemary Almond) and their famous meatballs. All while sipping on a great glass of cab.

We ended the evening with an espresso and a very yummY TIRAMISU, sharing of course!

When you make reservation through open table , but you still have to wait for 15 minutes and so, on top of that you still have to go tell the host that there were a empty table around ! Otherwise we wouldn't have a any table why even borther to make a reservation !!! Can we just seat ourselves ? This place suppose to be first come first serve ?

Rude hostess, made reservation in advance, had friend join us & was told he couldn’t be near our table in center of chaotic restaurant due to fire hazard, we understand but attitude VERY unnecessary! Asked server bring us Her Top 3 recommendations, once received tasted like salt shaker had accidentally spilled on our food. May be Corporate run but please Your STAFF are miserable & Food needs help! Seems like focus on Rollins kids who must be easier to lure...thanks for reminding me why we won’t return.

Prato is always a good choice. The meatballs and the spaghettini mostardo are a must. This time we also had this great pizza with pears and goat cheese...I can't remember what it was called, but it was SUCH a good decision. Such great food every time.

This was my 6th visit to Prato. I was celebrating my 1 year wedding anniversary. I made a reservation and requested a table for 2 NOT IN THE FRONT OF THE RESTAURANT. Walk in, tell them my name... they drag us over to the table 2 feet from the front door. I ask “you don’t have a table for 2 near the back?”. She says “No, those are reserved”. What? Isn’t that what a reservation is? Her response made no sense. After we were seated the waiter upsold me on my cocktail, but when it came out it was missing the items. I was cool with him and he made it right. We ordered several dishes to share as we’ve done in the past. One of the pasta dishes the waiter recommended was never served. Looking at the check we were billed for it even though it never arrived at the table. I told the waiter, he seemed astonished that we didn’t get it. I told him that it was fine but please remove it from the check.

We spent $150 on dinner for 2 and just felt like we weren’t treated in the way we’d expect in a restaurant like this. I guess we’ll go back at some point, but it’s not going to be soon.

The food at Prato is always a delight: the duck confit is spectacular, the specialty crostini is intriguing, the calamari and meatballs are staples. The service is efficient and thoughtful. But best of all for this particular night — kudos to the kind hostess who held our table for is when we got stuck on I4 and were late for our 5:30 reservation. The place was hopping, with a line out the door, when we arrived, but we were taken straight to our table and were seated. It was such a relief to be treated so kindly, and we really appreciated this action from Prato.

I love everything about this restaurant and constantly go back there. It’s my favorite. I recently went on a Friday night (1/5/17) during the cold front so it was extra busy with no one wanting to leave because of the cold. This was causing reservations to get backed up and I could see that everyone was taking it out on the hostesses even though there was nothing they could do about it. Nonetheless, the hostesses kept their cool, stayed professional the whole time, and kept busting their butts to make sure everyone was happy. As a former waiter I felt so bad for them, but they were incredibly impressive to watch. I couldn’t believe they didn’t lose it on people. So if the owner or managers are reading this, give your hostesses a bonus or something because you don’t want to lose them!
