    My son and I ordered the Chicken Parmiagana with penne pasta on mother's day! The chicken breast and tomato sauce were great, however, we received only 10 pieces of penne pasta for each dish. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! Other places you receive the chicken breast on top of a full plate of pasta. We paid $35 each for a half portion. Bad experience! The deserts were ok!

    We’ve been here for Christmas, a birthday and Mother’s Day. It’s reasonably priced for the quality of food and service. I like the Caesar salad, chicken parmigiana, however, not the pasta that comes with it. Love the truffle fries And most of the desserts.

    I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt due to being Mother’s Day. The service was off and the food bland.

    Sorry to say, but the food didn't take good, and wasn't worth $75 a person for Mother's Day buffet. Then they ask for a tip...for what? a buffet?

    Prego is consistently great. The food is fresh and very tasty. We had the lamb chops and the lasagna as well as the prosciutto appetizer. I don’t know if another restaurant that focuses on the experience and taste the way they do. The waitstaff is always very warm and helpful. Compliments to the chef!!!

    The front staff and servers were very friendly and did a great job. The location on the outer edge near the parking lot of the District makes it an easy go place. The food was very tasty. For groups or parties, they have a nice private dining room inside as well as a nice heated patio dining area.

    I went there with friends to celebrate a birthday. The service, drinks and food were great! I ordered the lamb chops. Even though they had run out of the risotto, they were able to substitute with mashed potatoes and it was still delicious. Would come back again and highly recommend for those who enjoy good food and need a place to have a conversation without the noise in the background, as some restaurants can get pretty loud.

    Food and Service are always great! The only dish that was disappointing was the Rib Eye steak special. It came on a cast iron plate that made the steak cook longer and then our medium rare order became a medium well steak. The bouillabaisse and land chops were enjoyed by all. Overall great dinner except for the steak.

    This was a very special (once-in-every-year) Easter all-you-can-eat lunch. The food was excellent (no cheap food, everything was super) for a low price of $65. (drinks were extra.) The service was very good (as soon as you cleaned your plate, it was taken away, so you could get your next plate with whatever food you wanted. The desserts were also plentiful - and the Tiramisu one of the best we ever had. We wish it were more frequent, not just once a year.
