Can’t wait to go back
We waited for the reopening and we drove up from the coast specifically to eat at Prego's. Prior to the CCP Plague, this was one of our favorite watering holes; in fact, we followed them from the airport location (different owners, obviously) to its District home. This time we hoped for good food and service, but not expecting the attention to detail that we received. This is a huge restaurant with a small patio, and the required distancing of tables and chairs is a further constraint, but somehow Prego's worked around the obstacles and created a white-table-cloth atmosphere that was very pleasant. The food was terrific: I ordered the lobster ravioli and enjoyed it very much; their salads were great, as well. The food was fresh and tasty and the service provided by Greg was as attentive as we might expect in a five-star establishment. No kidding. We shall be back. This is a good place and we want them to succeed despite the imposition of the CCP plague.
Can't wait to go back. Constantly fantastic food
Prego's is great with the outdoor dining during the pandemic. The food is great and the service is always personable and friendly.
Everything was so pleasant. Nice to be out and waited on, looking forward to go again soon.
Service was wonderful...happy hour on Saturday a huge plus!
The new extra outdoor seating allows happy diners to safely social distance, while the service continues to be top-notch. The quality and freshness of the food is always excellent. I usually go for a pasta dish, but on this hot Saturday, I chose the Ruth Salad and it was fabulous and fresh! This location always seems to have a perfect light breeze flowing by, so it's a refreshing experience and you feel very safe dining here even during a pandemic.
Food and service are always great!
We go there every week.
Out of particular red wine I selected and offered an alternative for me and then proceeded to charge the value of the more premium wine.
Food was good and fairly priced.
Great outdoor dining in their comfortable patio. Delicious food.
Great experience, as always. Business, pleasure, family. This place is great for all occasions!
Great food and great service. Did everything they could to make us comfortable and enjoy the evening. Super delicious food and well prepared. Definitely will be going back.
Great food and accommodating wait staff. I ask, they deliver. It’s great. GF options.
Be sure to ask if there are any specials for Sunday brunch - man was that great. Can't wait to go back
Have never had a bad meal here. They bend over backwards to make sure everything is right. This is definitely my go to restaurant.
Graduation celebration was core quarantine team and it was our first night out. What a nice welcome back to a truly fun family special dinner! Thank you to the team at Prego. Only request is that the water refills refrain from topping off my daughter’s Sprite along with our waters...she was able to laugh about that even after the third time.
It’s great being outside with the family!
Great service. Lasagna & scallops are delicious.
Celebrating first dinner out at one of our favorites. So great to see Mario and all our favorite servers back to work. Food was amazing, service was impeccable. Felt safer here having dinner than shopping at the grocery store.
Great food and our server was amazing. Will definitely be back.
We'll be back soon. The service was exceptional. Everything we five ordered was yummy. From salmon and shell fish to the pork shops. It was my Mom's birthday and Prego made it happy
Great (and quick) service! We went for a business lunch - party of 16 and we were in and out so fast!
Best lasagna ever!! The place has moved and has less ambiance, but the food and service are as good as ever. Nice verve at lunch.
Service and ambiance were great. Food was good, not great.
Mixed review for our party of 9 the other night. The steak salad was excellent, but the rib-eye plate was lacking a lot of flavor in the meat. Needed chimichurri and peppercorn brought out for a few of the party. Seafood pasta was said to have been great, and the risotto special was "just ok". Will definitely go back to test out a few other dishes as it appears there is some better ones than others.
It was my son’s birthday. Had a great time. Service was good, ambience was great and good was a lot more Italian than Mediterranean. It was worth a visit.
The service was excellent but not intrusive and the food was delicious. Good options on the menu for pasta, meats, and salads. I had chicken scallopini and meat was tender and sauce was tasty.
We use to go to Prego when in irvine, for about 30 years. When they moved they lost something. Menu not as authentic, too salty, loud ambiance, etc. people are still nice and service is good. Might give them another try...
Great food and great service! Great on Valentine’s Day!
Was a little disappointed in the portions. For the price the portions should be a little larger. Got the ravioli on Valentine’s Day, paging $26 for 4 pieces of ravioli was a waste.
Disorganized host/hostess, glass had lipstick marks, didn’t refill water, took forever to bring food, food was wrong when it arrived, food was cold on the second attempt. Absolutely terrible from beginning to bitter end. I can see how someone would have a nice experience there but mine was a perfect storm of disappointment.
Went for Valentine's day and had a great meal. This was the freshest, most authentic Italian food I've ever had and I would love to come back and see what the full menu has to offer.
Valentine’s Day dinner was fabulous! Spinach salad was superior, just the right toppings and savory not sweet dressing. The hazelnut chocolate dessert with a red heart macaron was a delight for the senses!
Host was rude..walked in to check in for my reservation. Host replies with a agitated face “well you have to wait” there was not even a hello from her. This experience put the other aspect of the restaurant down.
It was a nice experience, and I would only go back for the dessert. The food was okay, but you could get something better at a low price. We went for the Valentine's pre fixed menu, and it just wasn't what we were expecting. The ravioli hearts didn't taste fresh, the dough wasn't fully baked though. Their mash potatoes weren't good at all. But the dessert was great, I think out of me and my partners whole meal the dessert was the star everything else just wasn't good.
The ambience was amazing
They accommodated me for a client dinner seating us the back room which was excellent for conversation and privacy. Food was extremely good and service was outstanding!
Waiter took our order and was not seen again until I managed to
Flag him down to pay the bill.
Everything was awesome. Food, service and atmosphere couldn’t be better.
